The dust has barely settled on the news that Scott Johnson will leave the Ospreys at the end of the season but one man has already thrown his hat in the ring to be his successor – Eddie O’Sullivan.

O’Sullivan has just recently finished his second stint with the USA following the World Cup, and he has also been in charge of Ireland – leading them to three triple crowns between 2004 and 2007.

And the perfect opportunity to get back into the game looks to have appeared with the Ospreys revealing that current coach Johnson will not sign a new contract at the end of the season, reportedly leaving the RaboDirect PRO12 altogether to join Andy Robinson at Scotland.

And when asked about O’Sullivan’s availability, his management admitted the 53-year-old would definitely be interested in coming to Wales.

“Eddie O'Sullivan is definitely looking for a suitable job in rugby,” O'Sullivan's manager John Baker told the Irish Independent.

“Unlike soccer, rugby will never be a global sport and there are a limited amount of potential clubs.

“Is Eddie available for a position with the Ospreys? Yes he is, 100 per cent.”
