Andy Farrell wants former England international to join his staff

Andy Farrell is looking to a former England international as he sets about organising his coaching staff when he succeeds Joe Schmidt after the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

He is reportedly poised to snap up Alex King, whose own coaching career ironically started alongside Schmidt just over a decade ago.


The 44-year-old, who won five Test caps under Clive Woodward, worked at Northampton under Jim Mallinder before gaining Test level experience in the Wales set-up for the 2017 Six Nations.

King then headed back to France in July 2017 to take up the assistant’s post he currently hold under Vern Cotter at Montpellier.
