At just 30 years of age, Felix Jones is the youngest full-time coach with any of the provincial set-ups.
It’s been a rapid rise since his playing career was cruelly cut short with a neck injury in October 2015 at just 28. Yet after making such a positive impression as a technical coach last season, he was promoted to Munster’s backs and attack coach this season.
