Leo Cullen named new Leinster head coach

Leo Cullen has been announced as the new Leinster head coach on a two-year deal.

Cullen had been working in the role of interim coach since the departure of head coach Matt O’Connor at the tail end of last season, having served as the Australian’s forwards coach for the past season.

Cullen announced to the squad this morning that he had accepted the role on a full-time basis.

Leinster Rugby CEO Mick Dawson said: “We are delighted that Leo has agreed to become our head coach and to continue an association with Leinster Rugby that started back in 1995 with the schools team. We are all very much looking forward to the next two years under his tutelage.”
