Felipe Contepomi set for shock return to Leinster - reports

ESPN are reporting that Argentinian legend Felipe Contepomi is set to quit his role in the national set-up to return to European Champions Leinster.

Contempomi is the current head of the Argentinian XV side, but the former flyhalf would join Leinster as backs coach.

The move – if it goes ahead – comes following the departure of Daniel Hourcade from the headcoach position.

A qualified doctor, Contepomi is the Puma’s all time leading point scorer. Daniel Hourcade’s final game in charge of Argentina ended in a 44-15 defeat to Scotland in Resistencia.

Leinster lost the services of Girvan Dempsey, who joined Bath as Attack Coach and will head to the West Country ahead of the 2018/19 season.
