O'Connor will begin his spell in April, subject to visa proceedings, with current head coach Aaron Mauger leaving after this Saturday's fixture against the Saints.

"The club has conducted an exhaustive search to find who we feel is the right person to take the team forward and this brought up the names of a number of potentially very good coaches. One of the most significant factors in our deliberations was experience of the Premiership and what it takes to win the competition."
