Looks like they may have snuck one under the radar this time with the surprise announcement at the weekend.

We may finally lay our transfer demons of the past to rest (providing that this purchase of the contract of the Super leagues top scorer proves a lot more fruitful than our last Major Kiwi). No Disrespect intended to Christian Cullen, the man will always be an AllBlack Legend and still holds the AllBlack scoring record, but in my opinion misfortune delivered a broken man to our shores last time around. Injury after injury meant that despite the hefty price tag, we never got results from the worlds best full back.
This time around we see another winger/full back coming into the Munster fold, oooooh things are definitely heating up over here. A back line of Stringer, O’ Gara, Larry Mafi, Barry Murphy, Carney, Tipoki and now Howlett is starting to shape together verrry nicely indeed thank you sir…….

Roll it on, Roll on the Heino.
