GRAHAM Rowntree’s backroom team is beginning to take shape after the appointment of Mike Prendergast last week.

Andi Kyriacou will join Graham Rowntree’s coaching team as Forwards Coach from the beginning of the 2022/23 season after signing a two-year deal with the province.

He is the the latest confirmed member of Rowntree’s backroom team for the new season after Mike Prendergast’s return to the province as forwards coach was announced last week.

Kyriacou returned to work with Munster Rugby as an Elite Player Development Officer with the Greencore Munster Rugby Academy in April 2021.

From England, the former hooker lined out for the province during the 2006/07 season when on loan from Saracens and went on to represent Ulster and Cardiff Rugby before retiring from the professional game in 2013.

Over the last decade he has held numerous coaching roles in the areas of the scrum, defence, skills, and forwards working with Cardiff Rugby, Sale Sharks, Russia Rugby, and Nottingham.

Munster’s European campaign came to an end at the weekend when they were beaten by Toulouse in a shoot out but they are guaranteed a play-off berth in the URC ahead of next weekend’s clash with Leinster.
