Munster Coaches Are Up For Review

At the start of the Six Nations, Munster will review the position of all their coaching staff the Irish Independent reported today.

For Munster fans this might come as a relief after a very dismal period. However, Munster’s bosses have indicated it is because contracts are running out.

Ian Costello, Brian Walsh, Mick O’Driscoll and Jerry Flannery all have contracts until the end of the season.
Players Connor Murray, Keith Earls and Simon Zebo are out of contract at the end of the season too, but all indications are Murray and Earls will sign with the province again.

Zebo is in demand across the continent, and as such his position is more uncertain.

The big question for fans though is on the position of Anthony Foley. He had been offered a renewed contract, but has himself indicated he is unsure of what he will do after the shocking defeat to Stade Français and the elimination from European rugby.

While some fans blame Foley for the recent failings, it seems Munster do feel different about that. And considering the injury trouble and the trouble at out half and full back they have had, the executives of the province could have a point.

What do you think? Should Foley stay or go, or are other measures required to get Munster back to the top?
