JP Ferreira will join Johan van Graan’s backroom team as Munster’s new defence coach. Ferreira will join from the Golden Lions and has previously worked alongside Van Graan with the South African national side last year.

The 34-year-old, who has worked with the Lions since 2013, replaces Jacques Nienaber at Thomond Park and has signed a contract until June 2020.

“We are delighted that JP is joining our coaching team,” Van Graan said on Thursday. “He is a great coach that has been very successful at Super Rugby level, getting his side to finals with an excellent defence record.

“He also has test match experience from his time working with the Springboks during the November internationals last year so brings a great amount of knowledge and experience with him. I believe JP will fit in perfectly here at Munster and we look forward to his arrival.”
