Montpellier may turn to O’Leary

Date published: October 17 2016

Montpellier's search for a medical joker could see them turn to Munster's veteran scrum-half Tomas O'Leary.

The former Ireland international is currently third in the pecking order at Thomond Park behind British and Irish Lions number nine Conor Murray and Duncan Williams.

Montpellier need another scrum-half after Benôit Paillaugue was ruled out for four months with a shoulder injury last week, leaving only Nic White and Cameron Wright in the squad.

O'Leary is reportedly interested in the move, according to Midi Libre.
