MUNSTER LOOK SET to sign Argentina outside back Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino on a short term deal.

The former Leicester, Oyonnax, Montpellier and Cardiff Blues winger will arrive as a “medical joker”, for three to four months, confirming the news to ESPN South America.

Gonzalez Amorosino can play either on the wing or at fullback, and has featured in four of the country’s six World Cup games to date, but was an unused substitute in the win against Ireland in the quarter-final.

The 29-year-old – who has 48 caps for the Pumas since making his debut in 2007 – is expected to feature for the province before signing for Argentina’s upcoming Super Rugby franchise.

Amorosino will provide back three cover for Munster, who have been without fullback Felix Jones since the win against Glasgow Warriors four weeks ago.

Munster are also close to signing a backrow, with Anthony Foley openly saying they’re in the market for cover.

With Peter O’Mahony ruled out for several months and Tommy O’Donnell out until the new year, the province are likely to announce the signing of a flanker in the coming week.
