Ronan O'Gara confirms 'communication has started' over potential Super Rugby switch

The offer is understood to be a two-year deal to work as Scott Robertson’s assistant.

RONAN O’GARA HAS confirmed there is a degree of truth to the rumours linking him with a switch to Super Rugby.

The ex-Ireland international currently works as a coach with Paris-based Top 14 side Racing 92, however the Irish Examiner reported during the week that he is in line to make a switch to the Canterbury Crusaders.

The offer is understood to be a two-year deal to work as Scott Robertson’s assistant, with O’Gara considering the move despite his current Racing contract not being up until 2019.

The Munster legend is on RTÉ punditry duty for today’s Ireland-South Africa Autumn international and was asked about the prospective move to the reigning Super Rugby champions by presenter Daire O’Brien.

“The horse has bolted big time with this story,” the 40-year-old Cork native said. “Communication has started between the two clubs. There’s a lot of fences to jump.

“There has been contact. I’m not gong to run away from it. But also you have to respect that I’m really enjoying what’s going on in Paris. You’ve got to take it from my point of view that I go to work there on Monday morning so let’s wait and see.”
