The 25 year-old made his one and only Springbok appearence in Rassie Erasmus’ first game in charge versus Wales in 2018.

Munster are hoping to strengthen their pack following the confirmation of Billy Holland and CJ Stander’s departures earlier this month. The addition of Jenkins would not only fill the void left by Holland but also allow Tadhg Beirne to get more gametime in the blindside flanker position.

Jenkins would join the aforementioned Beirne, Jean Kleyn, RG Snyman, Fineen Wycherley, Thomas Ahern and Cian Hurley in the Munster engine room next season.
