There has been a lot of movement in and out of the Munster ranks since the birth of the HEC. It would be good to know where many of them have gone and what they are doing now.
So what the info on Brian kearney,the guy with the greek name I can't pronounce or spell, Rhees Elison, Mike Mullins, killian keane etc.

Brian Carney is a youth development officer and coach for a
league club in England, and a pundit for Sky. Andy K is
playing with Ulster. Mullins is coaching in NZ, iirc and Keane is
presumably just being awesome somewhere.

Rua is playing club rugby, by all accounts ridiculously well, in NZ. Was
some speculation that he would play NPC, but unlikely. I have Kiwi mate
who told me Rua is doing some work for Sky as sideline reporter aswell.
Killian Keane working for Setanta a bit

Clinton Hubbert is pissed off in Kiwi Land.

John Langford is playing 3rds/4ths rugby with Sydney Uni. A great friend of mine was locking with him for a few games last season.
Said not only was he an awesome player, seriously smart he was also dead on. Came to a mexican theme party in full mustache and poncho and drank them under the table!

Rhees Elison,





I just read this a few weeks back about him!:


http://www.stuff.co.nz/waikato-times/sport/3925691/Rugbys-be (http://www.stuff.co.nz/waikato-times/sport/3925691/Rugbys-been-Ellisons-passport-to-great-experiences) en-Ellisons-passport-to-great-experiences


Rugby has given Rhys Ellison many great experiences and opened plenty of doors.


The former midfield back had some wonderful times playing for both Waikato and Otago, and stints playing overseas one which enabled him to meet his future wife Karen.


The couple have been back in the country five years and live in Raglan, with Ellison, 44, working both there and in Rotorua as a lawyer with Aurere Law, who he's been with about six months.


After playing for Otago while at university, Ellison debuted for the Mooloos in 1990 and played 90 games for the province before finishing in 1995.


After that he spent a year plying his trade in Japan, and from 1997 to 2000 Ellison played in Ireland for club side Shannon and for Munster in the European Cup.


"The lifestyle was superb," he recalled.


"It was so close to other parts of the world that I hadn't seen.


"We used to go and play in Italy just out of Venice against a team called Treviso so you got to look around Venice. And the next week you could be playing in Scotland."


Ellison was stunned by the number of New Zealanders he would come across playing over there, and he also made plenty of Irish mates whom he caught up with when the national team were in the country recently.


In Ireland he met a local, Karen, and because of that he stayed on and worked as a lawyer there for a while.


The couple now have sons Jake, 8, and Tristan, 4, and there is some rugby interest there already with Jake playing for Raglan.


"He'd been playing touch for a couple of years which he enjoyed but he loves the tackle, he gets involved," Ellison said.


After moving north from Otago, Ellison spent most of his club days in the Waikato with University, having also played for University when in Dunedin.


He also had one year with Raglan and in his last season he played for Marist.


In the red, yellow and black jersey he enjoyed some stellar moments, with 1993 a standout with a victory over the British Lions and a Ranfurly Shield win over Auckland.


And the year before that, Ellison was part of the side that won the national championship in the first year playoffs were introduced, when Waikato dealt to his former Otago side in the decider after a magical win in the semifinal against Auckland at Eden Park.


"We finally got rid of that monkey on our back, we really struggled to beat Auckland at Eden Park and the very next year we went up and beat them for the Ranfurly Shield."


These days he is more focused on work and family but Ellison "keeps an eye" on the Waikato team by tracking their progress on TV, avidly watches the All Blacks and is a keen follower of Ireland. He also has many fond memories to look back on.


"Rugby has been great to me. The experiences far outweigh the sacrifices," Ellison said.

Was the manager for the SA sevens team. Coaching with the
Ikeys - UCT - now (which, considering he went to
Stellenbosch, is a bit like, say, Axel going to work with the
Laydeeeez) . Working in sports medicine in Cape Town.
