Andy Farrell Set For Provincial Coaching Role

Helping the boys out.

Andy Farrell is set to help out at Ulster Rugby following the conclusion of the Six Nations. Ireland’s current defence coach Farrell previously held a similar role England under Stuart Lancaster and also helped out at Munster for a period in 2016.

Farrell has also coached on the last two British and Irish Lions tours under Warren Gatland, and is regarded as one of the greatest defensive minds in world rugby.

He’s now set to lend that expertise to Ulster according to a report by the BBC, joining their current coaching ticket of Jono Gibbs and Dwayne Peel on a temporary basis. Jared Payne has also been working in a coaching capacity in recent weeks.

Ulster Operations Director Bryn Cunningham has confirmed nobody will permanently join the coaching staff before the end of the season.
