The French Press Report That The IRFU Made Serious Attempts To Bring Ronan O'Gara Back

The French Press Report That The IRFU Made Serious Attempts To Bring Ronan O'Gara Back
By Conor Neville Updated

In his Examiner column last Friday, Ronan O'Gara said that Paris was growing on him and he would not be returning to Ireland any time soon. 'Rugby-wise, the Top 14 is where it's at', he wrote.

Today, courtesy of Midi Olympique's most valued reader over this side of the water (aka, Gavin Mortimer), we learn that the bible of French rugby is reporting that the IRFU have formally attempted to coax O'Gara back to the old country.

With Les Kiss having departed for Ulster, the IRFU were seeking to recruit the Racing Metro's defence coach.

O'Gara has served as Racing's defence coach since the beginning of the 2014 season. His occasional penchant for getting trampled over by bullocking opponents has been referenced by the more mischievous members of the players' whatsapp. Mortimer's twitter feed also confirmed that Eddie O'Sullivan's unhappy time as Biarritz coach is 'officially over'.
