Munster have just released a short statement announcing the signing of Mark Flanagan from Saracens on a three-month loan deal.
A 28-year-old second row, Flanagan played for Ireland at U18, U19 and U20 levels and made his senior debut for Leinster back in 2010.
After a successful spell at the Bedford Blues in the English Championship, Flanagan was poached by Saracens. However, the Westmeath native is now set to return to Irish shores to see if he can make an impact with Munster.
