Larkham to join Irish club Munster

Axed Wallabies attack coach Stephen Larkham is set to join Irish rugby powerhouse Munster.

A World Cup winner in 1999, Larkham was culled from the Wallabies' coaching team in the aftermath of a dismal international campaign in 2018, in which Australia slipped to seventh in the world rankings.

Since his demotion in February, the 102-Test veteran has been working with the Junior Wallabies, Wallaroos, Sevens and Super Rugby sides through a national coaching advisory role.

Providing Larkham can secure a visa, he will take up a role as senior coach at Munster until June 2022.


Limerick-based Munster's now four-strong coaching structure is led by Johann van Graan and also includes forwards coach Graham Rowntree and defence coach JP Ferreira.
