Larkham has been in Limerick for just over a week now and gave an insight into how his move to the province came to fruition.

“He (Johann van Graan) said how interested he was in interviewing me and seeing if i would be right for the role.

“It’s an amazing club well known around the world. The supporter base are fanatics and it’s amazing.

“I came over eight weeks ago after talking to Johann and had a bit of a look around. Brand new HPC, really good roster. It was a no brainer. There are so many positives for coming over here.”
