Reports this morning indicate Ronan O'Gara could be on his way to the southern hemisphere

Ronan O'Gara could be set for a move to Super Rugby side Canterbury Crusaders, according to a report in the Irish Examiner this morning. 

The newspaper quotes an IRFU source who claims to be "99% sure" that O'Gara will move to the southern hemisphere giant next season.  

It is reported that he is likely to be brought in as assistant head coach to Scott Robertson.

O'Gara works as a columnist with the paper but declined to comment when contacted by the paper last night. 

The former Munster and Ireland out-half joined the Racing 92 staff shortly after his retirement in 2013 and has a contract with the French club which takes him through to 2019.
