He can’t sit around and waste time hoping the season might start again in the new year. I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t get Championship rugby for a long time yet. It’s not as big an issue in Australia as it is over here, so (with respect) at his age I’d be heading back home too. I’m sure he can get some kind of role back in Oz even if it’s within coach mentorship, fair play to him.
Disappointing but as previously said these are strange times with Covid 19 & there being no idea when rugby at our level will return. I would hope he will make a statement on reasons as the club has stated it will make no further comment.
Anything but ‘odd’ in my view. Squad largely signed up with major forward signings, what’s to do between now and after Christmas?
We have time, he’s saved us cash and left a ready made squad to start whenever. Not a bad shot for anyone wanting to coach one of the stalwart clubs of the game. Just hope that the lads signed will stay on. The players haven’t even been able to train this year but the ‘old heads’ are looking towards retirement anyway, so no great urgency to get up the ladder, they’ve already been there!
Chance for anyone ready for a coaching career to get a flyer.
