"Obviously looking back on the guys who have done the job, it's a big role and there's a bit more pressure there. But it's something that I thrive on and I'm looking forward to it, big time.
“I’d love to do a bit of work with Joe. His credentials speak for themselves, where he’s come from Clermont and Leinster.
“He’s obviously a top-class coach and I’ll be looking forward to getting a bit of work done under him hopefully.”
