Munster unveil Kyriacou as second Rowntree appointment
Munster head coach Graham Rowntree has revealed that Andi Kyriacou will join his coaching team as forwards coach from the beginning of the 2022/23 season.
The former hooker has signed a two-year deal with the province.
Kyriacou originally returned to work with the Irish province 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 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.
The news comes just a week after Rowntree confirmed that former Munster player Mike Prendergast would be joining as attack coach.
Prendergast will join the coaching ticket from July, making the move from Paris where he has held the position of attack and backs coach with Racing 92 since 2019.
He played 38 times for the province during two stints in Limerick, before moving to France where he’s highly rated as a coach.
