Andy Farrell, who has already signed up to bolster Joe Schmidt’s backroom staff later in the month, has been signed by Munster as a member of staff.

Farrell will spend at least one day a week with the province and also have a hand in preparing the team.

Munster Rugby CEO Garret Fitzgerald welcomes the inclusion of the league and union legend, stating that “his inclusion would be hugely beneficial in assisting our coaching team.

Munster legend David Wallace also praised the signing:

“For me, defence is where the biggest changes need to come,” Wallace said.

“As a team all season we’ve been leaking tries, dominating possession for large parts of the game and teams get the ball and score too easily. It’s been happening all season. I know Andy Farrell is coming to Ireland.

“It would be great to secure him, to bring him down to Munster when he’s not involved with Ireland and have his influence in Munster.

“I don’t know what the situation is there, but I know Irish coaches – not the head coach – have gone to provinces, the likes of Greg Feek and that. I’d be hoping something like that could happen because defensively, if you’re leaking tries too easily then you’re not going anywhere.”
