Munster In Talks With Wallabies Legend For Vacant Backs Role

Interviewed.

Wallabies legend Stephen Larkham has emerged as a contender to replace Felix Jones as backs coach at Munster, according to a report in the Irish Independent.

Jones, along with forwards coach Jerry Flannery are set to leave the southern province at the end of the season, with the pair turning down options to extend their deals in favour of pastures new.

Larkham is currently out of work, having most recently coached Australia, but left the Wallabies over “differences in attacking strategy” with head coach Michael Cheika.

But could be set for a return to action ahead of next season, with the report stating he has had an interview with Munster. Wales attack coach Rob Howley is also said to have held talks with the two-time European champions.
