'Don't go' - Stunned Munster fans react to news that Keith Earls is set for Saracens move
Munster fans woke to news this morning that one of their favourite sons could be set for a move to the Aviva Premiership.
The Irish Independent have revealed Keith Earls is on the verge of signing a three-year deal with English champions Saracens.
The bombshell has come as a huge shock to Munster's Red Army following the loss of the likes of JJ Hanrahan, Paddy Butler, Sean Dougall and James Coughlan to clubs from England and France.
There will be increased fears that Simon Zebo could join the exodus with the winger yet to sign an extension to his current contract that expires at the end of the current season.
Frustrated Munster fans have taken to voice their displeasure at Munster and the IRFU for not doing more to keep Earls at Thomond Park.

If the IRFU & Munster are prepared to let Earls leave, he should go.If they're not throwing the kitchen sink at him, they don't deserve him>— Niamh ☕️ (@niamhieobrien) January 26, 2016
He has a family to think of,& if after ALL he's given to us,& all he STILL gives, we don't offer him whatever he wants, we don't deserve him— Niamh ☕️ (@niamhieobrien) January 26, 2016
