Reports in France say Munster legend Donncha O'Callaghan is set to join French side

This would be a strange move.

Reports suggest that Donncha O'Callaghan is set to move to a Division 2 French side, as a favour.

The 37-year-old has been with Worcester Warriors since September 2015 but media outlets in France are saying that the Cork man could be off to join RC Narbonne.

The club on the south coast of the country are a second-level French side and aren't exactly setting the world alight at present.

Narbonne are not said to be the richest club but it's believed that hooker Huia Edmonds is a friend of Donncha O'Callaghan's and the lock is prepared to link up with the side as a favour to his mate.

Midi Olympique are reporting that the Munster legend has already met and spoken with the manager.

Although Worcester Warriors aren't enjoying the best of seasons themselves, O'Callaghan - even at 37 - feels that he can still contribute at an elite level.

After 17 years with Munster, the 94-times Ireland international is still fitter than the proverbial fiddle. He doesn't drink, he doesn't slack off, he still has a lot to offer.

RC Narbonne could be the latest beneficiaries of his talent though.
