So with the 2018/19 season being Pivac’s last before taking over from Gatland as Wales Head Coach, who are the best options to manage the Scarlets for the 2019/20 season? A lot of people may want Stephen Jones but I feel sure he will be a vital part of Pivac’s Welsh set up. I know there was a lot of fallout after the dressing room revolt in 2006 but I think that this could be the right time and the right opportunity to bring Mike Ruddock back to Wales. He’s done well wherever he has been, and although he is clearly content in Ireland I like to think there is an itch he can not scratch across the water. Apart from that, Dave Rennie seems to have garnered some negativity from the fans at Glasgow so maybe he would be willing to relocate. Scott Robertson is obviously doing a great job at Crusaders but not sure he would view the Scarlets role as the next logical step. Think Richard Cockerill is doing a fantastic job at Edinburgh but he seems happy and not sure he could be lured away. Heard people mention Easterby but there is no way he would leave the IRFU... even with his love for the region. Also think Kieran Crowley has proven his ability with Benetton and could be an option. Can’t really think of anyone else, though sure there are a load of candidates. Either way, regardless of the budgetary constraints that seem par for the course in Welsh Regional rugby of late, it should be considered a pretty big job, particularly with the squad and development infrastructure there.
