This. With the greatest respect to Samoa or the USA, I think he should be aiming higher. Let’s be honest, it would some drop from being a contender to coach NZ to taking up a Tier 2 post.

Of the International positions you mentioned, Scotland is the only one I can really see being available. Townsend is probably the most vulnerable of the coaches and if the SRFU lose patience, they might act. Even then, I think Robinson needs to be going for a really top European club job or a Top 5 ranked test side. A lot will depend on what’s open at the time.

Tbf it'd be awesome to see someone go to the US and try and fix the entire system (a bit like Eddie in Japan)

How many of these are likely?

He can do better than Italy, Samoa and the USA. Scotland might happen I guess but depends on what happens with Townsend. Even if we don't do well it's hard to see Andy Farrell being gone by then (and even if he is, I can't see us hiring Robertson, the last non-internal appointment by the IRFU was Brian Ashton 25 years ago).

Any of those clubs would take him if they had a vacancy but again that's dependent on timing.

i imagine any move wouldn't be until after the next super season so mid 2021, think he'd want to take over a international team 2 years out from the next WC, i think a club is much more likely

Why are those the only options... I personally think he stands a better chance at coaching the Chiefs and the B & I Lions... At least they'll put up a fight then...

But imagine if he coached Fiji and won the World Cup. If I was a great coach I’d want to coach Fiji.
