Cardiff Blues centre Casey Laulala will join Munster at the end of the season.
The 29-year-old New Zealander has signed a two-year deal with the Irish side, having played 58 times for Cardiff.
He said: "I guess this is a fresh challenge for me. It's something new and hopefully the Munster welcome will be as warm as the one I experienced here in Cardiff."
He added: "Munster are a very successful team so I'm looking forward to joining them and experiencing life in Ireland.
"But there is still a lot of rugby to be played this season so I am still fully focused on doing well for the Blues."
