Leinster have confirmed that South African international Zane Kirchner will leave the club at the end of the season.

The Springbok will join the Newport Gwent Dragons for the 2017/18 season.

Speaking about the departure Kirchner said, "new decisions and ventures aren't always easy to make. However the experience of moving to Leinster, my first move abroad, has helped."

Leinster Rugby Head Coach Leo Cullen also took time to acknowledge the impact that the 32 year old has had on the club saying "Zane has played a key role in his time with Leinster. I will always remember his two tries in the PRO12 Final against Glasgow at the RDS as they paved the way for us to win the game, a game that happened to be my last ever game of rugby played"

Leinster are next in action on the 25th of March against the Cardiff Blues.
