Former Munster and Ireland back-row forward Denis Leamy has joined the Leinster backroom team as a contact skills coach. The question has to be asked though, why isn’t the Tipperary man in the coaching ticket with Munster? Still only 39 years of age and having coached Clonmel and Cashel in the All Ireland League and part of the Tipperary hurling panel. This guy is said to be a serious prospect by many in the game.

Leamy won two Heinken Cups with Munster and came through Rockwell college in Tipperary, Leamy was a serious number eight and played a massive part in that famous Munster Rugby squad. Surely a guy like this is better served to be coaching in his own province?

Munster’s loss is Leinster’s gain, how Munster could do with Leamy coaching some of the exciting back-row players coming through the system at the moment, especially Gavin Coombes…
