O'Leary joins Montpellier as 'medical joker'


Munster scrum-half Tomás O'Leary has joined Top 14 side Montpellier on a short-term deal.

O'Leary has joined the French outfit as a 'medical joker' after scrum-half Benoit Paillaugue was ruled out for four months.

O'Leary was left out of Munster's European squad and he could be drafted into the Montpellier panel for Sunday's Pool 4 clash with Leinster.
