Former England coach Farrell to join Munster as consultant

Andy Farrell has joined Munster

Former England defence coach Andy Farrell will join Irish province Munster in an advisory role with immediate effect.

Farrell was appointed as Ireland’s new defence coach after the Six Nations last week and in the meantime he will assist Munster Head Coach Anthony Foley and his coaching group.

Farrell was released from his position with England after Stuart Lancaster stood down but before that he was with English club Saracens as an assistant coach.

Commenting on the appointment Munster Rugby CEO Garrett Fitzgerald said, “We have been looking for additional support for our coaching staff and with the timely availability of an experienced coach such as Andy Farrell we felt his inclusion would be hugely beneficial in assisting our coaching team.”

In relation to Farrell’s availability, David Nucifora, IRFU Performance Director, commented, “Andy’s gardening leave prevents him from coaching in the international game at this time but he has agreed to an advisory role working with Anthony and his backroom team.”
