AND importantly it would seem these are all people well known to Brad so he gets to pick his key coaching group Ioan has been good enough for Wayne in the last 5 years and is experienced now and still learning. Looks good to me 👍

One possible advantage is that Glenn Delaney and Richard Whiffin were at London Irish together,the former as Head of Rugby Operations and the latter as Backs coach as part of Tom Coventry's coaching team.

Let's be honest here, for a region with our budget to recruit 3 coaches in one go and with such backrounds and credentials is phenominal. It wasnt so long ago that if a coach retired or left we'd appoint ex players from within, whether they were good enough or not.

The early announcement might have had an effect on this year's performance, who knows? It could have just been the lack of depth to cope with a larger than average amont of injuries and the disruption that caused to starting line ups. But the forward planning in replacing virtually the whole coaching team for next season has been second to none. Well done to all involved.Clap

Fair comment - it was important to have these coaches in position and named as early as possible - no doubt they'll want to set their stall out in the pre-season, though of course the players selected for the RWC won't be involved at that stage.

Delaney's recruitment is interesting as he only went to Dunedin for the Highlanders job in late 2017 when Scott McLoed (the 'Landers pervious defence coach) got the All Blacks defence job … not a bad reference.
He led the Canterbury Mitre 10 side as head coach to win the comp in 2017. I assume this is where Brad met him coaching the feeder side to the Crusaders. 
As someone who has seen his sides play (not on tv),  the Highlanders pack is always one of the best in NZ and Super rugby ..an area we need more coaching expertise in … looks a great pick to me 
I was there ...one Tuesday when the All Blacks came (and lost)

Yeah World Cup year is not the best time for them to join, but they will have extra time to work with the core squad due to the delayed start.

Disappointed if true. After the season we've endured we need fresh faces - not more of the same.

I think it might be good timing to change coaching setup, precisely due to the longer pre-season for the bulk of the squad. These guys need to bond and build relationships and understanding.

Brad Mooar and Mark Delaney worked together in the past.
Whiffin and Delaney also worked together.

I assume delaney will be overlooking forwards in supporting cunningham.

Mooar to do the same in attack imo. Whiffin a huge influence in bringing through young guns. This will no doubt have been a factor.

Wouldn't be surprised if Richard Kelly is brought in as well... And maybe Emyr Phillips.

wouldn't those wages be better used towards a number 8 ?

I assume you mean Casseim, Blade & Josh. Casseim doesn't fit the bill for me, Blade is a 6 in the Shingler mould and Josh is a natural 7 at the moment with every chance of growing into the 8 role. If I was selecting the best back row available to us at the moment it would be 6. Aaron 7 Cubby 8. Blade with Josh on the bench able to cover all 3. With that combination available most of this season we would have qualified for the play offs in my mind if only on the back of an improved lineout. 

However Blade only works as an 8 if you have plenty of carrying options ahead of him in the front 5.

Given the news that Casseim was playing with a fairly significant injury for part of this season I am reserving judgment on him for another season & am hoping that with a good pre-season he will show what he is really capable of.
