The Rugby Pod, a podcast hosted by former Scottish international Jim Hamilton and England fly half Andy Goode, have linked Paul O’Connell with the forwards coaching job at the Leicester Tigers.
Hamilton revealed on the hugely popular podcast, that his ‘best mate’ Brett Deacon is the current Leicester forwards coach.
He continues to state that Leicester have been in talks with O’Connell with a view to the former Lions captain becoming a coach at the Aviva Premiership club.
However the host does follow up his massive claim with the words “I have heard this, my sources are good, but no one from Leicester has told me this”
Their track record on such has been fairly spot on with Ross Moriarty’s move from Gloucester to the Dragons mentioned weeks before the transfer was announced.
