Two-and-a-half years on from making the move to France, Ronan O'Gara has made the decision to extend his stay in the Top 14.

Racing announced today that ROG has signed a new deal which will keep him at the club until 2019.

O'Gara initially joined Racing at the same time as Johnny Sexton, taking on the role of assistant coach.

In 2014 he would become the Racing defence coach.

When Les Kiss departed Joe Schmidt's coaching team last year, O'Gara was sounded out, according to the French press, as a possible replacement for Kiss as Ireland defence coach. O'Gara knocked back the approach. Instead the IRFU had to opt for Andy Farrell.
