Andy one to manage
By DAIRE WALSH
ANDREW CONWAY expects Andy Farrell to make a smooth transition to the role of Ireland boss.
Farrell – Joe Schmidt’s current defence coach – will take the reins from the Kiwi after next year’s World Cup in Japan.
Munster and Ireland star Conway, 27, believes the move will work out well.
Conway insisted: “I’m sure he’s been thinking about that role for a while. It’s unbelievable for him.
“Joe has put massive onus on the leadership group and the coaching group that he has around him to be all on the same page.
“He’ll be driving the defensive side of it and I’m sure he knows an incredible amount about attack, because that’s what he’s trying to marshal on a week-to-week basis.
“It’s tough working with Andy because he’s got such standards, but you see the benefit of it that comes out in the defence.”
