O’Gara backs Larkin appointment


Ronan O’Gara believes that the recruitment of new senior coach Stephen Larkin is just what Munster need to take them to the next level.

The last two seasons have ended in disappointment for the Thomond Park faithful following successive PRO14 and Champions Cup semi-final exits, but Munster legend O’Gara believes that Larkin could be the catalyst to securing the province’s first piece of silverware since 2011.

A former Australian international, Larkin has coached at both club and international level with the Brumbies and the Wallabies.

"I played against Larkham. He would have been a few years older and I would have admired him,” O’Gara said. 

“I think it is a signature signing in a great way, I think, because of what he has done and his capacity as a player and a coach. 

"There is a great aura about him and I think maybe the Munster backs might derive more confidence from a guy like him. 

"The Aussies are always exceptional on attack frameworks. This isn't a critique, they really like patterns but I think with the natural ability the Irish have in a pattern and a framework and their ability to play, I think that will suit Munster."
