EDDIE O’SULLIVAN

Postby Mac » Thu May 24, 2012 9:09 am

The Wee Wan just seems to be clutching at straws in his, thus far,
vain attempt to get back on board with a top name. After his failed
attempts at home, C Blues and Gloucester, EOS and his agent are
now attempting to talk up that there are opportunities down in the
S Hemi. I would safely say that there's not a chance in hell of any
of this coming to fruition for him.

EDDIE O’SULLIVAN is in line for a return to full-time coaching after holding talks with Australian Super 15 franchise the Western Force.

O’Sullivan, Ireland head coach from 2001 to 2008 and US Eagles coach up until last year’s World Cup, reportedly impressed the Force hierarchy, who are conducting a global search following Richard Graham’s move to the Queensland Reds next season.

O’Sullivan’s agent, John Baker, also confirmed to The Irish Times last night the 53-year-old is a contender for the vacant Auckland Blues job, a role Leinster coach Joe Schmidt recently ruled himself out of the running for.

“Eddie has not been down to Australia but he has held preliminary talks with the Force,” Baker said. “It is for a coaching position, not necessarily the head coaching position, as the talks have not reached that stage yet.

“There is also an interest in the vacant position at the Auckland Blues,” Baker added.

Former Leinster coach Michael Cheika was the initial favourite for the Force position, where Wallaby flanker David Pocock is currently under contract. However, Cheika is believed to be seeking a role in England, having just been released by Stade Français after two unsuccessful seasons.

O’Sullivan also admitted last April he applied for vacant coaching positions at the Cardiff Blues and Gloucester, although the Cork native was not considered for a return to working in Ireland despite the recent head coaching appointments at Munster and Ulster of New Zealanders Rob Penney and Mark Anscombe.

Other coaches believed to be on the Force short list to replace Graham are Connacht backs coach Brian Melrose, John Mulvihill, who was previously with Navan RFC, and Tim Lane.
