    Wish him and his family all the best, one of the greatest coaches we've ever had here in SA and I think the Tigers would want him back soon.

    Agreed that he's a good coach. Tigers were an improving side underneath him, but I think them losing him will be a mighty blow (pretty much proven by their poor display against Bath - who were rampant, in fairness). Wish him all the best, as you say.

    Bath were rampent, you say?

    I wonder which Bath I was watching. Bath have been poor for weeks now and only pulling wins out the bag by the skin of their teeth. It's a good sign of a class side when they can be so poor and still get wins, but they've been far from playing well since before the HEC started.

    My excuse: I didn't really watch the game.

    I think it was Brian Clough who once said:

    Or words to that effect.

    Leicester and Bath are currently at that level. Hope Meyer's family is okay but even if he comes back if Leicester win the Guinness Premiership, you can call me Meyer*.


    (* apparently an old German phrase to say if you're confident that something won't happen, kind of like saying you'll eat your hat.)

  9. I heartily endorse Alan Gaffney for the position of Leicester head coach ;)

    I'd personally favour Rob Andrew getting the job myself. Keeps most things rugby related that I hate all in one convenient place.

    if Gaffney were to take the job I wonder would he be willing to take Whitaker with him, himself and Ellis would get along famously.
     
  12. Reports in the Irish Independent place Eddie O'Sullivan and Michael Bradley on the shortlist for the Leicester job. I was joking about Gaffney but damn, I wouldn't wish EOS or Bradley on anybody!

    Imagine Eddie as Head Coach with Gaffney and Bradley as assistants :D Gaffney gone from Leinster and Ireland, Bradley gone from Connacht and Ireland A and Eddie just gone! Would make some Irish rugby fans very happy, not sure about Tiger fans tho :p
