Hardly surprising when he’s been off in nz getting married which should have been valuable training time, simply no excuse for us not to be ready for that blues game. A lack of respect from Pivac imo should have waited until after the season like the players would be told too. Looking forward to a fresh start as can’t see us winning an away playoff if we manage to get there.

Does anyone get the Rugby Paper? Apparently there's mention of the new coaches that Brad is bringing in.

Don't know anything about these guys so won't comment. Disappointed that we are not addressing our serious lack of performance at forward.

Great news. Pleased if Ioan staying on personally to keep some local Llanelli connection and who can pass on information as well to aid continuity.

Don’t listen to him. Delaney is very good and I would have been happy if he was the head coach

I hope you are right, all those suoer rugby teams concede 30 points per game so I'm not sure I'd be shopping for a defence coach from a super rugby team. I'd be looking at a Shaun Edwards rugby league type.


But I'm no expert.

People want to be entertained and see points scored in running rugby and if we continue to play rugby in that style and win I will be happy. 👍

Interestingly Delaney has also been a successful forwards coach in the past.

I think these 2 coaches are good business. They both seam up and coming coaches who have a lot of praise from very knowledgeable rugby people and i bet they didnt break the bank either. I for one am pretty excited for next season
