Date published: December 14 2014

London Irish boss Brian Smith is set to leave the Exiles at the end of the season according to a report in the Rugby Paper.

The Australian is reportedly heading back Down Under at the end of the current campaign, with his contract up at the Madejski.

It would be the latest in a string of departures for the Exiles, with strength and conditioning coach Steve Walsh and commercial director Jim O’Toole having both left this week.

Among those mooted as possible replacements are former Ireland coach Declan Kidney and Chiefs assistant coach Tom Coventry.
