Western Province is set to lose the services of fullback Jaco Taute to Munster.

Sport24 reports that Taute is set to join the Irish club on a 5 month deal as an injury replacement. The deal is reported to have been initiated by Rassie Erasmus, current director of rugby at Munster.

It is understood that this deal is more likely a trial with a possible contract extension should he come through the term without injury.

His current Union is unlikely to stand in his way to join Munster, with the deal being concluded immediately.

  • @robdylan (Comment 1) : Keeping in mind that hindsight is a luxury he didn’t have at the time, I do still wonder how his career would have developed had he stayed on at the Lions.

  • @robdylan (Comment 1) : @Zibbie (Comment 2) : @SheldonK (Comment 3) : @vanmartin (Comment 4) : yes for sure a tragic fairytale but injuries is one of those things that can happen no matter where you play so don’t think the move to WP can be to blame think it’s rather a bit of bad luck with injuries that caused it. Maybe the move up north will help the lad solve his injury problems just like it did for others.

  • @vanmartin (Comment 4) : @vanmartin (Comment 5) : @JD (Comment 6) : Something we need to keep in mind- not every player thrives in every environment. A lot of players play well in a certain environment but change that environment and players struggle to replicate that good play…

  • @The hound (Comment 10) : @JD (Comment 11) : its a mental thing,some players like Dan Carter come back others like Deysel,Ludike,Waylon Murrey cant or dont and are never the same again

  • @benji (Comment 12) : for sure some part is mental but it also depend on the type of injury and his many injuries guys pick up. Someone like Deysel and Alberts must have in the back of their mind that “the big injury” that ends their career could possible be one big hit or run away so for sure that will impact on how you play. For others I do think you lose speed and/or agility so no matter how you feel you will not be the same as before your injury. Standing on the outside I think it’s difficult to know how and why some players come back stronger after injury and other seems to be a shadow of the player they used to be.

  • @robdylan (Comment 1) : When he started I thought for sure he would be a regular for the Boks. Sadly it all went “South” (excuse the pun) after his move and injury.

    @JD (Comment 13) : That mental block and/or fear will always hold a player back. In fact anyone in any situation with a fear / confidence issue of any sort will always struggle to deliver 100%. I suppose a Psychologist would play an important role in trying to get the player to overcome that fear.

  • @Farlington (Comment 14) : ja it could but the best think for me is prolonged game time. The longer you stay injury free the more you will give as fear of reinjuring yourself will fade.

  • @JD (Comment 15) : You can’t just lump all injuries together like you guys are doing,coming back from a broken leg is completely different to coming back from a collar bone or concussion,.
    When you look at a guy like Taute and Ludik quick acceleration and the ability to step were a huge part of their game probably the reason why they suffered the injury. Coming back on the other side even though the bone may have mended their acceleration and ability to step hasn’t.You just don’t trust the limb anymore.
    Milner Skudder coming back from a shoulder injury will adapt to his former glory so much quicker than if he was coming back from a broken leg.

  • @The hound (Comment 16) : ja for sure the type of injury will play a role as will the frequency of injuries (how many time a player got injured).
