Munster Director Of Rugby Rassie Erasmus has given Munster supporters even more reason to smile this evening with some promising comments on the future of fan favourite Jaco Taute
“We don’t want to get a player here that blocks the development of young Irish players but then you look at a guy like Rory Scannell sitting next to Jaco and the way he’s developing and a guy like Sam Arnold experiencing that. You know, it would be great to keep him, and surely I am thinking about that,” Erasmus said.
“Francis Saili will be ready probably against Leinster (on December 26) but if there is a real case for Jaco staying here, helping and developing young backline players into Irish internationals, because there is no doubt that he is performing on and off the field helping guys around him.
“So it is something I’m thinking about to be honest with you but I always have to put the Irish system as the first, most important thing. I want to make sure it fits into the plan and if it does it would make sense.
“There are a lot of other key decision makers who must agree with your plan.”
