Munster Are Set For Another Year Of The Anthony Foley Regime

18 months into Anthony Foley's reign as Munster head coach and overall it has been a disappointment.

Last year's Champions Cup campaign saw elimination in the group stage. This season, after an underwhelming bonus point win against Treviso and a loss, at home to Leicester at the weekend, prospects of progression to the knockout stages are hanging precariously. They could well be over had the fixture away to Stade Francais not been postponed.

On the domestic front, things have been more positive, with the final of last season's Pro12 being reached.


His time in charge has also seen a notable drop in attendaces.

Foley initially signed a two-year deal with an option for a third.

According to Brendan Fanning of the Irish Independent, Foley looks set to take that option. A senior source with Munster told Fanning that negotiations have 'gone well' and he could be confirmed as head coach for the 2016/17 season in the new year.

Where do Munster fans stand on this? Are you happy to see Foley - a Munster legend in terms of his playing career - get another year in charge?
