Reports in France have linked Leinster forwards coach Jono Gibbes with a move to Clermont Auvergne at the end of the season.

Clermont's current coach Vern Cotter is in his final year with the French giants after he confirmed earlier this year that he would take over as Scottish national team head coach at the end of this season.

It is yet not clear yet whether Gibbes will be head coach or forwards coach with Clermont.

The New Zealander, who has eight caps with the All-Blacks, joined the Leinster staff in 2008 and has been heavily involved in the province's incredible success since.
