“The move felt right” – Sean O’Brien makes rugby return

Leinster have confirmed the appointment of former Leinster, Ireland and British and Irish Lions back row, Seán O’Brien, as Contact Skills Coach ahead of the start of next season.

O’Brien, who retired from rugby last month having played his last game with London Irish in the Gallagher Premiership, left Leinster at the end of the 2018/19 season.

Commenting on his appointment, Leinster Rugby head coach Leo Cullen said, “It is great to be able to welcome Seán back home to Leinster.

“On the rugby pitch, Seán at his best was virtually unplayable and he was an amazing contributor to Leinster, Ireland and the Lions.

“In a Leinster shirt, he played a key role in some of our greatest days on the European stage and we hope he can pass on some of his vast experience and winning mentality to our current squad.

“I know that Seán has always been a keen student of the game and has been heavily involved with coaching in Tullow RFC going back to his early playing days. We believe he has a very bright future in coaching and I think it’s a win-win for both sides to have him back here.

“In addition to his experience, Seán has always been a brilliant presence in the Leinster changing room and I think our group will be excited and energised by having him back involved.”
