Ireland legend Ronan O’Gara is in line for a surprise move to southern hemisphere rugby, according to the Irish Examiner this morning.
The Corkman could swap his role at Racing 92 for an opportunity at Super Rugby side, the Canterbury Crusaders.
An IRFU source is ’99% sure’ that O’Gara will make the decision to move next season and become Scott Robertson’s assistant on a two-year deal.
O’Gara has indicated he’d love to take over as head coach at Thomond Park at some point in the future but is keen to earn experience elsewhere first.
He has a contract in the French capital until 2019.
