Following on from the signing of Paul Warwick, Munster have announced that Kieran Lewis will join the province from Leinster at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old made his Leinster debut in 2002 and has won 60 caps in the blue jersey, including 10 Heineken Cup caps.

Lewis, a former Schools and Under 21 international won a senior international cap in the June 2005 tour to Japan and last Friday night won his eight A international cap when he partnered Barry Muphy in the centre against England at Ravenhill.

Speaking about his impending move, Lewis said, “Of course I am looking forward to it. Its a challenge I’m looking forward to. They (Munster) are a great side and I believe this is a good opportunity for me. I know a lot of the Munster lads after been involved with them at various levels so I think I know what’s required. Yes there are regrets to be leaving Leinster, I been here right from the start, have enjoyed my time and learned a lot here. I hope to help them achieve a few things before the end of the season.”
