Paul O'Connell May Leave Munster In The Summer - But Not For France...

Paul O'Connell May Leave Munster In The Summer - But Not For France...
By Conor Neville

Rumours abounded this morning that tomorrow's Pro12 semi-final against Ospreys could be Paul O'Connell's final home game for Munster.

The reports sparked talk once more of a move to Toulon or Racing Metro or another moneyed Top 14 outfit.

However, in an interview with Marcus Horan on Rugbai Beo, O'Connell hinted that he is considering retiring from rugby outright after the World Cup. The thought of retiring now holds no fears for him.

I think if I had to retire in the morning Id be very happy. It wouldnt bother me.

O'Connell also spoke about the possibility of a coaching career, but indicated he would rather begin that away from Munster.

I think you would probably step away initially and take a bit of time out. Its very much a bubble. You think Munsters the be all and end all and Irish rugbys the be all and end all, when in fact it probably isnt.

The interview will be broadcast on Rugbai Beo on TG4 ahead of their coverage of the Ospreys game. Coverage begins at 2.00.
