- Santiago Cordero is reportedly on the move north to either the Aviva Premiership or the Pro14.
The winger/fullback has been linked to the Leicester Tigers by a number of Argentine media outlets and Matt O’Connor confirmed the clubs interest.
“We are always in the market to bring quality into the group,” said O’Connor.
“He’s a guy who is available and we have had a conversation with him around that.”
“But it is around dispensation and budget and all the other dynamics that go with the game these days.”
“It is nowhere near a certainty but we have had a conversation because he is a quality player and we think he would add a lot to the group.”

Munster are currently on the lookout for a replacement fullback, after Racing 92 today confirmed that Simon Zebo would be joining their ranks for the 2018/2019 season.
Cordero caught the attention of a wider rugby audience during the 2015 World Cup with his pace and stepping ability, having scored memorable tries against Georgia and Tonga.
The Pumas ace made a significant contribution to Argentina’s fourth place finish in the tournament.
To date, he has been capped 33 times by Los Pumas scoring a total of 55 points.
