Rob Kearney considering Top 14 switch as contract talks stall

Rob Kearney considering Top 14 switch as contract talks stall

Leinster and Ireland fullback Rob Kearney could be heading to France and is said to be considering offers from two Top 14 clubs.


Kearney was a notable omission from the list of 21 players who have signed up for the 2019-20 season with his current IRFU contract running until the end of World Cup in November.

Kearney has been offered a new deal, but his agent Dave McHugh admitted to The Irish Independent, that contract talks have stalled.

“We had hoped to reach a conclusion by now. The IRFU have made Rob an offer. But if I am honest it is well below where it needs to be.”



Kearney is rumoured to be one of the top earners in the Irish set-up.

Kearney has won four European cups with Leinster, four PRO14 titles as well as four Six Nations with Leinster, two of which being Grand Slams. The 33-year-old has also been on three Lions Tours and was named the European Player of the year in 2012.
