O'Connell link with Grenoble

Paul O'Connell (above) could be on his way to Grenoble after the World Cup, according to French Newspaper Midi Olympique, writes Des Berry.

Former Leinster and Ireland hooker Bernard Jackman is the head coach at the Top-14 club and, more importantly, his former Young Munster and provincial team-mate Mike Prendergast is the skills coach.

There is a contractual impediment rooted in the fact O'Connell has a centralised IRFU deal to the summer of 2016, although this could be short-circuited on the grounds of service rendered.
