I didn't rate him from the start I must say. Or more accurately I didn't like him, and wasn't convinced his demeanour was that of a high quality coach.

I wonder if Mark Jones might end up at the Blues?
Ymlaen Llanelli!

Knew it wouldn't last too long the day he was announced and I saw a handful of 'get Hammett out' fan pages on Facebook from the hurricanes fans. Interested to see who they get in now. McIntosh probably deserves a go.
For the losers now, will be later to win.

Sounds like he's the right man for Operation Omni-shambles phase 3!

If his family aren't settling in then it is a shame for them and Cardiff. Having someone upset the #BluesFamily wouldn't be a bad thing and there were some green shoots of recovery among the dross they've served up for the last 2 years.

there was a snippet on walesonline stating Matthew Rees and other players not happy with his regime, it was quickly removed.

even gatland distanced himself from this appointment, after being credited in helping with the recruitment process. shows what a total mess it had become down at the blues.

It's been a shambles since he signed. They've had more investment than any other region over the last two years and can put out a very good side (on paper).
I think some of the signings come from above him, such as Adam Jones and the Welsh British Lions front row couldn't have come cheap yet Geth is the only one performing at anywhere near his form of the last 10 years.
At second row they signed a NZ international and Paolo, and at back row they have a plethora of riches Warburton Navidi Turnbull Elis Jenkins Macauley Cook Voasawai Ieuan Jones etc.
The signing of Anscombe has been embarrassing too, and they have Tuculet, Amorosino, Patchell, Cuthbert etc and a bunch of other solid pro 12 players.
Absolute shambles for years the Blues have been throwing money away and they're probably the region with the best chance of being successful with a huge amount of people within a local vicinity, a larger amount of potential backers nearby than any other region, a larger squad budget and more signings of note over the last few seasons.

Isn't "family issues" an easy way to say "I'm not doing my job and I've been asked to leave" without saying he's sacked. Amicable I think the word will be used to describe this split.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
