As the uncertainty surrounding the future of Peter O’Mahony continues, speculation has risen about potential destinations should he elect to leave Munster. The Ireland international refused to be drawn on the issue on Monday, but did state it would be resolved in the coming weeks.
It has been largely acknowledged that the flanker would be a big hit at a host of top clubs in England and France. Given his work-rate, line-out skills and general leadership, it is no surprise.
According to a report today in the Irish Independent, Gloucester are keen to acquire the services of O’Mahony, who captained the Lions in the first test against New Zealand last summer.
After the departure of Ross Moriarty at the end of the season, the Premiership side will have a vacancy in their side, and there are few players in world rugby more suitable than O’Mahony.
Gloucester have gotten off to a promising start this season, currently in second place in the Premiership table. David Humphreys’ side will be eager to push on in the coming months as they aim to solidify their position amongst England’s elite. In order to do that on a consistent basis, the acquisition of top class players is vital, and bringing Peter O’Mahony to the Kingshold Stadium would be a major boost.
