Anthony Foley: Seconded to the Ireland backroom staff
Munster assistant coach Anthony Foley and Leinster scrum guru Greg Feek have been seconded to the Ireland set-up for the autumn internationals.
Foley and Feek will join Declan Kidney's backroom staff for the clashes against South Africa (November 10), Fiji (November 17) and Argentina (November 24).
"I'm pleased that Anthony has taken up the offer of working with the squad to assist during this vital period in November," said Kidney.
"His previous experience of working with the team during the last RBS Six Nations was important, but his own abilities and experience were central to bringing him onboard.
"I would like to thank Rob Penney and Joe Schmidt for being so positive and giving Anthony Foley and Greg the scope to be part of the plans that we have."
Foley added: "I was delighted when Declan approached Rob and me about the possibility of working with the Ireland team again.
"I enjoyed the opportunity I got during the Six Nations working with the players and I felt once we were all comfortable with the balance between Munster and Ireland, I jumped at the chance."
