LISTEN: Paul O'Connell looks forward to coaching 'challenge' ahead of Junior World Cup

Ireland U-20 Coach Paul O'Connell has spoken about the transition from playing to coaching.

The Aldi Ambassador spoke to the Limerick Leader at the 2018 Community Games in UL, the day he flew out to France for the Junior Rugby World Cup.

O'Connell admits in the audio above that he didn't take enough notes for lineouts while playing. Something he now (laughingly) thinks he should have. Have a listen above.
