European Rugby legend Ronan O'Gara to leave Racing 92 for Crusaders

European Rugby legend Ronan O'Gara to leave Racing 92 for Crusaders

Ronan O'Gara, assistant coach in the technical staff of Racing 92, at the club since July 2013, has been asked by the New Zealand province of Crusaders to occupy, from 1 January 2018, the position of coach assistant in charge of three quarters.

Unsurprisingly, Ronan O'Gara is set to leave Racing 92 to join the Crusaders of New Zealand.

O'Gara's contract had been due to run until 2019 in the French capital, however, Racing released a statement on Wednesday confirming the 40-year-old would be released from his contract at the end of December.

It's official. Irish great Ronan O'Gara is heading to the Crusaders as backs coach next year.

"New Zealand sets the bar in world rugby, and Super Rugby is recognized as one of the toughest global rugby tournaments", O'Gara said.

The chance to join Scott Robertson's team and contribute to their defence of the Super Rugby title they won at the start of August will give the former Ireland 10 the chance to "enrich his rugby knowledge and ideal his training methods".

Players will welcome him in with open arms if he goes there. Becoming the club's defence coach after an initial promotion, the former Munster man will now act as the assistant coach to Crusaders' Scott Robertson.

Crusaders chief executive Hamish Riach said the appointment was exciting for the Crusaders team and fans.

"We are lucky to have the continuity of Brad and Jason in their roles, while Ronan will bring his fresh perspective and new ideas, which is always welcomed".

"Ronan O'Gara is one of rugby's worldwide super-stars".

"I got to know him really well in NY".
