O'Shea reveals Italy approach

Former Ireland international Conor O'Shea has turned down an approach from the Italian Rugby Federation about replacing Jacques Brunel as head coach.

Brunel took charge of the Azzurri after the 2011 World Cup but he is not expected to be offered a new contract in the wake of his side's disappointing performance in the World Cup earlier this year.

O'Shea was first linked with the position in April and the Harlequins director of rugby has confirmed he had been contacted by the FIR, but he has stated his commitment to the Aviva Premiership side.

"It’s flattering, but no, I’m not going anywhere,” O'Shea told the Daily Telegraph.

"My job is here. It’s really nice to be mentioned like that, a massive honour, but my job is here and I want to make sure we continue it.

"They’ve been on and talked to me, but that’s natural. That happens in every walk of life, that people ask questions. You’re always linked. There are England jobs, Ireland jobs, club jobs. And it’s very flattering, but my job is here, full stop. I have been approached but I’m sure they’re talking to a load of people and my job is here."
