O’Shea confirmed as Harlequins Director of Rugby

Harlequins have confirmed today that former Ireland full-back Conor O’Shea will succeed the controversial Dean Richards as their Director of Rugby.

Conor O'Shea will move to Harlequins from his role as the Director of the English Institute of Sport.

He said: "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the EIS and it is a shame that I will be moving on at such an exciting and challenging time for the organisation and for sport in this country.

"But plain and simply, my passion lies with rugby and my desire to influence at the sharp end of the game has never diminished.

"So when approached by Harlequins, a club with an exciting squad, a committed and talented group of coaches and support staff and a stable business model to underpin long term success, I knew it was a challenge I had to take on."
