Director of Rugby
Paul O’Connell takes over as Director of Rugby for the season and will bring his many years of experience to the job.
If a player wishes to transfer between clubs then the following procedure must be adhered to:
An Irish Rugby Football Union Inter-Club Transfer Form must be filled out as follows:
PART 1. NOTICE OF INTENTION TO CHANGE CLUB must be signed by both the player and the club where the player is currently registered
This form must then be sent to the club the player wishes to join and
PART 2 TRANSFER FORM
must be signed by the Club Secretary
and then sent on to the appropriate IRFU Branch (in our case the Munster Branch offices in Limerick)
In the meantime the Club Registrar of the club requesting the transfer must put up a formal request on the IRFU Player Registration Database. To do this the Registrar needs to know the player’s registration number and the name of the club from whence the player is coming.
When all these are in place then the Branch will release the player to his new club.
