MUNSTER Rugby can confirm that Jason Jenkins will depart the province at the end of the season.
Jenkins joined Munster last summer but injuries have restricted his involvement to date and the back five forward will join Leinster ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
Jenkins is aiming to make an impact for Munster in the business end of the season as he targets a return to action from injury.
Speaking on his move, Jenkins said:
“First of all, I’d like to thank Johann, all the coaches and management staff at Munster Rugby and in particular the medical team and physios.
To say that I have been frustrated with the season and my injuries would be an understatement, but I cannot speak highly enough of the group of people that I have had the privilege of working with.
Munster Rugby gave me the opportunity to come to Ireland and I am very grateful for that and have loved my time in Limerick. I’d also like to thank the Munster players for welcoming me with open arms into their environment and making me feel right at home from day one.
It is still my hope to finish the season strong on the field with Munster Rugby and that is where my focus will be over the coming months.
When that is to one side, I will get ready for a new challenge with Leinster Rugby.
I have had a number of conversations with Leo [Cullen] and I am excited for what the future holds and experiencing a new city and a new rugby environment.”
