UPDATE: Jaco Taute's loan period with Munster has been extended, the Irish province confirmed on Monday.

Munster Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus confirmed that the Springbok and Stormers player and fellow back Angus Lloyd will remain with the province until June 2017

"Thankfully all parties have successfully come together in permitting us to secure Angus and Jaco for the remainder of the season," Erasmus told the team's website. 

"We were keen to retain the services of both players as we move on to our next fixtures. With Cathal [Sheridan] continuing to rehab a long-term ankle injury and Conor [Murray] unavailable to us during the international window Angus will bolster our options at scrumhalf. 

"Similarly, with Jaco already in the system, having him available as a fullback or centre will be invaluable as our backline options will need to adapt with international commitments and following recent injuries to Alex Wootton, Bill Johnston and Darren Sweetnam." 

Taute's original loan deal ended on December 31, 2016.
