England back Flutey off to Munster

England centre Riki Flutey who currently plays for Brive has reportedly signed for Irish province Munster on a two-year deal.

New Zealand-born Flutey signed a two-year deal with Brive last year but reports coming out of France and Ireland state that Flutey is not happy with the club.

Flutey has played just four matches for Brive since joining them after international call ups and a shoulder injury reduced his availability.

Last week Brive released Flutey’s England team mate Andy Goode so that he could join the Natal Sharks in the Super 14 and the club are expected to follow suit by releasing Flutey as they will have a 20 per cent reduced budget next season.

Munster are desperate to replace New Zealanders Doug Howlett and South African Jean de Villiers.
