Munster Rugby secures touted tighthead Oli Jager

Reigning URC Champions Munster Rugby have today announced the signing of tighthead prop Oli Jager from the Crusaders.

The revelation of Jager’s imminent departure from the reigning Super Rugby created significant buzz around Irish Rugby last week.

Originally from Kildare, Jager has been a key player in New Zealand rugby since 2017. His tenure with the Crusaders was marked by remarkable success, contributing significantly to the team’s five Super Rugby titles. Since making his debut in 2017, Jager has proven himself as a dependable and skilled tighthead prop, earning respect in one of the sport’s most demanding positions.

For Jager, the move to Munster represents a homecoming, reconnecting with his roots in Kildare. This transition holds both professional and personal significance, as the seasoned player embarks on a new chapter with Munster Rugby.

Excitement is building among fans as Jager is set to officially join the Munster squad at the beginning of December. Collaborating with Graham Rowntree’s side, optimism abounds regarding the positive impact he will bring to the team dynamics, both on and off the field.

Securing the services of Oli Jager positions Munster Rugby to fortify its front row, infusing experience, skill, and a winning mentality. As the next chapter unfolds in Jager’s rugby journey, Munster supporters eagerly anticipate witnessing the prop’s contributions to the team’s ongoing pursuit of success. The signing marks a strategic move for Munster, signalling their commitment to building a formidable team capable of competing in both the URC and Champions Cup.
