WATCH: Jerry Flannery chats about his new role at ‘huge club’ Harlequins

After leaving Munster at the end of last season, Munster legend Jerry Flannery has taken up a role with English Premiership side Harlequins as their new line-out coach.

Speaking to the club’s YouTube channel, Flannery says he sees a lot of similarities between Munster and Harlequins.

“Harlequins is a huge club. As a kid I used to watch them with Keith Wood and they have always had a very strong tradition. Mirroring where I was as they were very much like Munster as a traditional club. Very strong supporter base with a specific way of playing.”

While ‘Quins aren’t the force they were when Flannery was playing with Munster, there have been encouraging signs in recent years and with a squad packed full of talent, Flannery is confident about the upcoming season.

“I really see Harlequins as a sleeping giant of a club. The club has exactly what it needs in terms of players that can make that attacking technique work, players that can pull a rabbit out of a hat!”
