Munster reveal the details of Abrahams' move

TRANSFER NEWS: Munster and the IRFU confirmed the signing of 25-year-old back Thaakir Abrahams on a two-year deal.


An extremely fast and elusive wing/fullback with deceptive strength, Abrahams joins the province after one year with Lyon where he scored five tries in five Champions Cup appearances.

A former South Africa Under-20 international, Abrahams captained Paarl Boys High in his school days before helping the Junior Springboks to a third-placed finish at the 2019 U20 World Cup.

He represented Western Province at underage level before moving to Durban to join the Sharks, quickly making his Super Rugby debut in 2020.

His three seasons at Sharks saw Abrahams impress in the Champions Cup, URC, Super Rugby and Currie Cup competitions before his move to Lyon last summer.

Abrahams has an eye for the spectacular and his incredible solo try for Sharks against Leinster was nominated for the 2022/23 URC Try of the Season.

He is the ninth new addition to the senior squad ahead of next season with Billy Burns, Tom Farrell and Diarmuid Kilgallen also joining the province.


Exciting young players Brian Gleeson, Edwin Edogbo, Mark Donnelly, Tony Butler and Ethan Coughlan are also stepping up from the Academy to the senior squad.

Additionally, Eoghan Clarke and Oli Jager joined the province mid-season and have made a big impact. Clarke recently penned a one-year extension with Jager signing until 2027.
