Frisch shaping up for a bright future with Munster

Antoine Frisch, who has recovered from injury for Munster's trip to South Africa.

ON THE back of his superb display against Connacht, Antoine Frisch is likely to become an invaluable part of Munster Rugby’s future plans.

That’s according to RTE pundit Bernard Jackman. 

“Frisch is going to be a key player for them,” former Ireland hooker Jackman told ‘Against The Head.’ “Good things happen when he’s on the ball. He gets Munster into that 15-metre channel which is something the (Malakai) Fekitoa/(Dan) Goggin partnership didn’t do.

“He is a talented footballer, he just looks really comfortable. I know Conor McPhillips had him in Bristol last year. He’s qualified for France, England and Ireland – Fabien Galthié wanted him to go away with France to Japan [last July].

“He could be a guy that comes in under the radar and has a bigger influence than Fekitoa or De Allende had.

“The way Mike Prendergast wants to play and the way Munster are going to evolve, I think he could be a key man. We’re only seeing him now because he had some niggles early on in a red shirt.”

Munster are at Edinburgh for the latest round of the URC on this Friday night, kick-off 7.35pm with live coverage on TG4.
