Highly-rated Ireland assistant coach targeted by Japanese club ahead of World Cup
Ireland's scrum coach Greg Feek is attracting interest from Japan.
The highly rated All Black has been a coach here for eight seasons since joining Leinster in 2010 and has helped produce a formidable Irish set-piece that has played a big role in this year's success.
There may be scope for Feek to remain involved with Ireland while taking up a position with a Japanese club despite Ireland facing the Brave Blossoms in their 2019 World Cup pool.
The 42-year-old has won two European Cups and three Six Nations titles since coming to Ireland, after representing the All Blacks ten times during his playing career.
