JJ Hanrahan set for Munster return - reports

JJ Hanrahan could be on his way back to Munster from Northampton.

The 24-year-old Kerry native left the province during the summer of 2015 and has since made 25 appearances for the Aviva Premiership side, despite some recent injury troubles.

His contract with the Saints expires in the summer and a deal has already been agreed that will see the player return, according to a report in the Irish Independent.

A deal could also be struck to keep Jaco Taute in the province until the end of the season.

The centre's temporary move from Western Province is due to end soon but he has showed his worth to Munster in recent times, particularly with a blistering performance in the Champions Cup on Saturday.
