McGahan is to leave the Reds at the end of the campaign to take up a new post as Australia’s defence coach, with home-grownAnthony Foley favourite to take over
But former Italy and Japan boss Kirwan, a World Cup winner as a player with the All Blacks in 1987, last night admitted his interest.
“Every job that comes up I get associated with, but I’m not working at the moment and I’m looking for a team that’s keen on winning a lot of stuff. I know Munster are doing that,” Kirwan said on The Last Word on Today FM.
“I’m sure if they rang me I’d certainly talk to them — I don’t know if the phone is gonna ring though.”
Earlier this month, Kirwan also threw his hat into the ring for theupcoming vacancy in the coach’s chair at Ulster: “If Ulster are keen on winning the Heineken Cup or Pro12 League, I’d be keen to get involved.”
