Munster have confirmed that they have signed New Zealand scrum-half Alby Mathewson on a short-term deal.
Following an injury to Conor Murray, it was evident that the Irish province would need some additional cover to bolster their ranks.
Now, according to a statement on their official website, Alby Mathewson will join up with the Munster camp on a four-month deal.
