Munster attack coach confident Antoine Frisch will remain at club despite French interest

IRISH TIMES 

Munster attack coach Mike Prendergast is confident that impressive centre Antoine Frisch will remain at the club despite the player expressing a desire to play for his native France and apparent interest from a few Top 14 clubs.

The 27-year-old, who has another season to run on his contract with Munster after joining from Bristol Bears, has scored seven tries in his 35 appearances to date. His impact is illustrated by making 34 starts at outside centre and one off the bench.

Frisch is also Irish-qualified but after remaining outside Andy Farrell’s loop since arriving in Limerick, he was briefly called into the expanded French squad for the Six Nations and while he was released, it is expected he could be brought to Argentina for a summer tour as Fabien Galthié rests some of his frontliners.

Prendergast, who spent more than a decade coaching and playing in France, said he was aware of the situation but was confident that he will be at Munster next season.
