Munster head coach Rob Penney has already challenged Gerhard van der Heever to emulate compatriots BJ Botha and CJ Stander at two-time Heineken Cup winners - but will the South African be up for the challenge?
The 24-year-old has signed a two-year contract at the Thomond Park outfit as Penney looks to build on his squad's remarkable Heineken Cup run last season which resulted in a semi-final defeat by Clermont Auvergne.
Van den Heever certainly brings versatility, with the young Springbok capable of playing at wing, centre and full-back, although he's largely started on the wing as he competed with Brian Habana for a starting spot in the national side.
Following Habana's move to the Stormers, Van der Heever was provided with the chance to shine at the Blue Bulls as he helped his side win the Super Rugby 14 title before joined Western Province in 2012.
He moved to the Stormers shortly after as he was reunited with Habana but his switch to Munster represents a real chance to make a name for himself and continue his development alongside his Junior World Championship-winning captain Stander.
Standing at 6ft 3ins and weighing 16 st 1 lb, Van der Heever has earned favourable comparisons to British and Irish Lions and Wales wing George North, and the South African is touted to be even quicker than lightning-fast Habana.
"Gerhard is a young guy that is capable of playing in multiple positions and he has committed to Munster for two years so he has an opportunity to build in becoming a Munster man just like BJ Botha and CJ Stander before him," Penney said of his new signing.
"He is a wing, centre and full-back with a lovely kick and is exceptionally fast so he should be a great addition to the squad. We are very happy to have him coming to us and I know they are disappointed to see him go from the Stormers."
Penney will hope his new Springbok can complement Ireland stars Keith Earls and Simon Zebo as the Munster head coach looks to build on their season of transition last term.
