Munster have confirmed the signing of former All Blacks star Christian Cullen on a three-year contract.

The Wellington full-back, capped 58 times by his country, will join the Munster squad later this year.
Cullen, the record Super 12 try scorer, told the club's website: "I am really thrilled to be coming over to play with Munster.
"It's a great opportunity to play with one of the most successful sides in European rugby - everything about the move is exciting."
The 27-year-old made his international debut against Samoa in 1996 and has since scored 236 Test points, including a record 46 tries.
Munster coach Alan Gaffney said: "Christian is not just world class he's also a really lovely guy who will fit in superbly well here.
"Besides the obvious advantages that a player of his talent will bring, I believe that the players around him will benefit enormously from his presence in the squad.
"He carries a wealth of experience on young shoulders.
"He is truly a player of enormous stature in the world game and I think it's a huge tribute to Irish rugby but in particular to Munster that he has opted to continue his career with us."
