Munster prop Rory Burke has joined Greene King IPA Championship side Nottingham on a one-year deal.

Cork-born Burke, 23, was capped by Ireland at Under-20 level and made his full Munster debut in their Guinness Pro12 victory in Treviso last month.

Head coach Ian Costello, who has previously worked with Burke at Munster, told the official Nottingham website: "One of the key targets for us in the off-season was to strengthen our front five.

"We've managed to do that, but we felt that we needed a third quality tighthead there to give us the depth to be competitive throughout the season and Rory very much does that.

"I think he'll benefit hugely from playing 15 to 20 games at this level next season and contribute a huge amount to the squad and the club's ambitions moving forward."
