Cronin set for Biarritz move


Former Munster and Ireland prop James Cronin could be in line for a move to Biarritz, according to reports.

The 30-year-old made 142 appearances for Munster in eight years with the club, but was not offered a new deal at the end of last season.

Connacht were interested in bringing him to The Sportsground, but were unable to agree a deal with the loosehead who now looks set for a move to newly-promoted Top 14 outfit Biarritz.

Cronin will join former Munster players Dave O’Callaghan, James Hart and Francis Saili at the club, while ex-Ireland U20 international Billy Scannell is part of the club’s academy. 

Biarritz secured their return to the French top flight after defeating Bayonne in a penalty shoot-out.
