Jerry Flannery To Depart Harlequins For Springboks



Harlequins can confirm that Defence Coach Jerry Flannery will depart the Club in February to take up a coaching role with the South African national team. Flannery will depart for the Springboks following the high-profile friendly match at The Stoop on Friday 23 February as Harlequins take on his former side Munster Rugby.


Flannery, who joined the Club in 2020 has been a key part of the coaching team that won the Gallagher Premiership title in 2021 and now stand second in the Premiership.


Harlequins Director of Rugby Billy Millard said:

“We will be sorry to see Jerry go as he is a big character and can be very proud of his achievements at Harlequins. We wish him well as he moves into international rugby and continues to develop his career. He will always be welcome at The Stoop."

"For the rest of this season we have a very strong group of coaches and are very fortunate to have Assistant Defence Coach Jordan Turner-Hall with us, and the resources and structure to achieve our goals."


Flannery added:

“I have loved my time at Harlequins working alongside a talented young group of coaches and players. The opportunity to move into international rugby and to work alongside Rassie Erasmus again after our time at Munster was very appealing and I would like to thank Harlequins for supporting my desire to take up this opportunity to develop my career. I look forward to the next few weeks with Harlequins and a final home match at a sold-out Stoop in February."
