Andy Farrell appointed as advisor to Foley

LAST night there was speculation that Munster coach Anthony Foley could be on his way out. This morning the Munster Branch issued the following statement:
“Munster Rugby can confirm that Andy Farrell will join the province in an advisory role with immediate effect.
The role will see the incoming Ireland defence coach provide support to Head Coach Anthony Foley and his coaching group on a part-time basis over the next four months.
“Commenting on the appointment Munster Rugby CEO Garrett Fitzgerald said, “We have been looking for additional support for our coaching staff and with the timely availability of an experienced coach such as Andy Farrell we felt his inclusion would be hugely beneficial in assisting our coaching team.”
“In relation to Farrell’s availability, David Nucifora, IRFU Performance Director, commented, “Andy’s gardening leave prevents him from coaching in the international game at this time but he has agreed to an advisory role working with Anthony and his backroom team.”
