Leo Cullen is the man for Leinster.

The ex-Leinster captain is set to be appointed as the head coach on a two year deal.

He will replace Matt O'Connor, who left the province at the end of May after a disappointing season.

Cullen was appointed as caretaker head coach after O’Connor’s departure.

But incoming Leinster President Rob McDermott confirmed last night that Cullen has been given teh role permanently.

Speaking to Midlands 103, McDermott said he was looking forward to Cullen getting started in the role.

“He’s been offered a two year deal, so he is going to be the head coach going forward for the next two years.

“He’s really come out of himself since being appointed into the head coach. The players responded to him very well and he’s steeped in Leinster tradition. He commands a huge respect in the dressing room. “

“I’m excited by the prospect of watching him get the team playing well again next year.
