Munster have confirmed the signing of Bristol Bears centre, Antoine Frisch. 

The French-born centre qualifies for Ireland through his maternal grandmother who hails from Dublin.

Frisch has signed a three-year contract with Munster, having only joined Bristol from Rouen last year.

The 25-year old looks set to form an all-new centre partnership at Thomond Park alongside fellow new signing Malakai Fekitoa.

Greeting his departure, Bristol director of rugby Pat Lam said of Frisch, "When Antoine joined us from the Pro D2, it’s fair to say he had a lot of room to learn and develop his game. He's worked hard and has shown real promise in his performances particularly in the second half of the season.

"Because he is Irish qualified, that's attracted the interest of the Irish Rugby Union and we are pleased he's been offered a good opportunity with Munster to chase his International dream.

"We thank Antoine for his contribution to the club and wish him the very best for the next chapter in Ireland."
