NEWS: The drain on South Africa's age-group resources by clubs and franchises in Europe gained more momentum this week.

Irish province Munster confirmed that the South African duo of Keynon Knox and Matt Moore, both 18, recently linked up with the Peter Malone-run academy.

The two completed their schooling in December, at Michaelhouse and St Andrew's College respectively.  

Knox, a tighthead prop, and Moore, who plays centre and fullback, are training with the first year academy recruits.

Knox, weighing in at a massive 118kg, was a member of the KwaZulu-Natal at the Under-18 Craven Week team and also captained the Michaelhouse First XV.

Moore played for the Eastern Province Country Districts at the 2016 Craven Week, during his penultimate year in school. He also represented the Eastern Province Under-19 team.
