Felix Jones has emerged as a surprise favourite to take over at Munster.

Current Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus is set to leave his post with the southern province in December, after agreeing a deal to return to South Africa. Erasmus will also be taking defence coach Jacques Nienaber with him.

Former players Ronan O’Gara and Paul O’Connell are also in contention according to the bookies, coming in at 10/3 and 6/1 respectively. Other contenders include the likes of Andy Farrell and Conor O’Shea.
