Huge Grenoble Centre 'Arousing The Greed Of Munster' According To Reports In France
By Gavan Casey

Grenoble may have broken a lot of Irish hearts with a late victory over Connacht last weekend, but one of their rising stars is being linked with a move that's bound to perk the ears of Munster fans.

According to French regional newspaper Le Dauphine, six-foot-five and 105kg centre Chris Farrell has attracted the interest of Anthony Foley and Munster, having not yet signed on the dotted line of a new deal offered by Bernard Jackman which would see him remain in France until 2019.

The 23-year-old's current contract ends next year, and Le Dauphine say the Campbell College graduate could well end up moving home, to either Munster or his local province:

reads the report.

The promising Grenoble center should make a decision by this summer.

The newspaper also states that Joe Schmidt is keen to see Farrell return to his native land so he can fight for a place in the Irish squad.

Originally from Fivemiletown in Tyrone, Farrell decided to head south to France a couple of years ago for a fresh start, following two injury-plagued seasons with Ulster.

He initially signed with Grenoble on a one-year deal after meeting Jackman in Dublin, but wasn’t long making an impression; Grenoble moved quickly to sign him up for a further two seasons.

He first announced himself on the Irish rugby scene with 10 highly impressive Ireland under-20s caps.
