O'Gara to join Racing Metro as coach

Ronan O'Gara will join Jonathan Sexton at Racing Metro next season as kicking coach.

The veteran Munster and Ireland out-half has agreed a two-year contract with the Paris club, which will see him hang-up his boots at the end of the season to take-on an assistant coaching role.

Sexton has already confirmed a move to Racing - where he will become one of the game's best paid players.

The 36-year-old O'Gara, who has yet to formally announce his retirement, met with Racing president, Jacky Lorenzetti, in London for talks about the deal and will join as a kicking mentor to his former rival for the Ireland number 10 shirt.
