Matt O'Connor

The son of a former Australian rugby league professional, the 42-year-old played most of his club rugby in Canberra with ACT and then the Brumbies and was capped at senior level by Australia against Ireland, while also fitting in a spell in Super League and a couple of seasons in Japan.

Matt coached in Japan before his return to Australia where he worked for four years with the Brumbies during which time he also coached Australia 'A' before joining Leicester Tigers.

He joined the Tigers coaching team in early 2009, with Tigers picking up the Premiership trophy at Twickenham and reaching a fifth Heineken Cup Final where they lost to Leinster in Murrayfield.

After retaining the Premiership title in May 2010, O'Connor became Head Coach in July of that year and led them to successive Runners Up positions in the Premiership and in 2012 the English side won the LV Cup.

Prior to starting his three-year term as Leinster coach in July 2013, he helped guide Leicester Tigers to the Premiership title in May.
