    We'll have Lowe, Fardy and Tomane. Munster have Botha and Cloete (I think), Taute is off.

    Is this the new angle now that the NIQ's can't be thrown at us. :)

    Sure every little helps.

    Leo signed on to complete the double double-double in 2021.

    Lancaster has a get out clause it's reported though. 6weeks notice for any head coach role or international role. And is unclear if it's a 1 year deal or 2

    Think Lancaster will be tough to keep long term if he’s not the out and out number one, he’s too good. That said I don’t think international rugby is where he thrives. Very clear he’s top class at nurturing and identifying talent, motivating players and getting buy in for a system which can all be difficult working with players from teams from dispondent styles and only limited time. I’m sure he as a highly motivated coach wouldn’t agree though and will take the right international shot if it comes along. Curious to see what sort of club job would interest him after the highs of Leinster if that’s the way he goes.

    This is what I think is very interesting. This role he is in now is exactly what he loves. No real pressure, highly respected and is bot caught up in the crappy side but left to coaching. I think he does wish he was closer to home but definitely don't think he's unhappy. I think clauses are just a in case a perfect fit personally comes up

    I think Lancaster has a job that's perfect for him, both that it's in Ireland given that he's widely liked and respected here and it's not really the same in England, and that his current role is perfect for him. Realistically at the end of the day it's a club job where he's no No.1, if the right job comes we can't compete.

    It's brilliant to see both Leo Cullen and Stuart Lancaster stick around next season. They complement each other really well.

    Cullen's incredibly successful playing career with Leinster gives him gravitas with the players and his background in PR helps him handle the media aspect of the job. It allows Lancaster get on with the day to day coaching of players at which he excels.
