Munster are interested in bringing All Blacks hooker Andrew Hore to the province, according to reports.
The Daily Mail claims Munster are looking to the veteran Kiwi to cover Mike Sherry's injury and also sort their malfunctioning lineout. Hore has recently suggested his international career is coming to an endbut if he opts for a short-term move to Ireland, he would bring a wealth of experience in Munster's front-row.
Munster are no strangers to signing All Blacks having recruited Doug Howlett, Casey Laulala and Christian Cullen in the past and Hore's move would be similar to Leinster's capture of Brad Thorn back in 2012 when he helped them to a Heineken Cup title.
