Rassie Erasmus looks likely to bring his stint at Munster to a premature end.
There are reports this morning that the Director of Rugby has handed in his six month notice at the province, ahead of a move back to South Africa.
It's believed he has been offered a similar role at the South African Rugby Union.
Erasmus will remain in charge for the start of the new season, but it remains to be seen when he officially departs the side.
The news will come as a major blow to Munster who have thrived since his arrival, as they reached the Guinness PRO12 final and the last four of the European Champions Cup.
Speaking last April, Erasmus admitted that a return to his native country would always be a possibility.
