VIDEO: Johann Van Graan is just coming to the end of his first week as the head coach of Munster and has now given his first interview since joining the province.

In an interview spanning topics from his early coaching career to his knowledge of Munster before ever setting foot in the door, the 36-year-old revealed that he is taking a somewhat reserved role this week as he gets to know his staff and players.

“I really enjoyed Felix and Jerry the previous times I was over. I had a very good debrief from Rassie and Jacques, so we’ve been planning for this all along. They [Felix Jones and Jerry Flannery] are taking the lead in the rugby this week.

“I’m now looking at all the meetings, looking at what happens in sessions, starting to build relationships with players”
