Munster have confirmed recent rumours by announcing the return of former player Mike Prendergast as attack coach under new head coach Graham Rowntree.

Prendergast comes from Racing 92, where he has been coaching the Parisians’ attack for the past three years.

Experienced

He has gathered a wealth of experience coaching in France, having coached the attacking strategies of Stade Francais, Oyonnax and Grenoble in the past decade.

His only Irish coaching experience was with Young Munster, whom he player-coached following his full retirement in 2009 while he worked towards his coaching badges.

The former scrum-half was also assistant coach for the Munster A side which claimed the British and Irish Cup in 2012.

“It is above all a family choice,” said Prendergast.

“I was really happy at Racing, I had a great relationship with Laurent Travers and Jacky Lorenzetti, but some family worries are now pushing me to return home. In the meantime, I hope we have a great end to the season and can win a title for this club.”
