Interim Coach Set To Take Over From Rassie Erasmus

The right man for the job?

Munster and the IRFU are set to look to Felix Jones to act as ‘interim head coach’ when Rassie Erasmus departs in December, according to Donn O’Sullivan in the Limerick Leader.

Erasmus is set to depart Munster in December to take up a role with the South African Rugby Union, with the timing not ideal in terms of getting a permanent replacement in place.

Jones acted in a skills role last season, before impressing and being awarded the backs coach job ahead of this season.

Erasmus is expected to speak to the media for the first time, since his decision to return home was announced, this coming Wednesday at the Guinness Pro14 launch in Dublin.
