O'Gara set for return to France

Ronan O'Gara appears set for a return to France. 

La Rochelle today confirmed that their backs coach Xavier Garbajosa will leave at the end of the season. 

That would open the door for O'Gara to move to leave Super Rugby side Crusaders for the Challenge Cup finalists. 

A three-year contract has reportedly already been agreed. 

Should the move come to pass, the Munster and Ireland legend would work alongside former Ulster head coach Jono Gibbes.

It would also mean that O'Gara wouldn't be available for any potential role with Munster, where backroom staff Jerry Flannery and Felix Jones are going to depart.
