Munster have signed Waikato's versatile back Savenaca Tokula on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

With Will Chambers returning to Australia and injuries to Tom Gleeson (shoulder) and Troy Smith (knee), Tokula will bolster Munster's resources in the centres. Smith requires a second operation on the knee injury that has consigned him to the sidelines for much of the season.

Tokula brings a wealth of Sevens experience after turning out for the New Zealand squad in both 2009 and 2010. He has also played in Super Rugby having pulled on the Chiefs' jersey last season.

And Munster have also announced that tight-head Peter Borlase will join Connacht on loan. Borlase has not yet featured for Munster in the PRO12 and will help out Connacht in the front-row with Dylan Rogers (hamstring) and Rodney Au You (foot) both sidelined.
