“Something Has to Change” – Jack Willis slams RFU decision

#2. Sean O’Brien

The former Ireland and Lions flanker returned to Leinster, this summer, to take up a coaching role with a side he won multiple league and European titles with O’Brien. However, he just couldn’t stay retired, making his rugby comeback with Naas RFC.

O’Brien had been seeking to play for his club, Tullow, when he returned from his professional rugby stint in England, with London Irish. That move to a junior-level side was prevented when the domestic level section of the Leinster Rugby branch stated it would be going against safety guidelines for a just retired professional to immediately drop down to play at that level.
