WRU have called a news conference for later today apparently to announce Pivac as Gatland's successor.

The BBC rumour that Wayne has the job:


Yet to be confirmed - he is the obvious choice, though from a Scarlets POV it would be a pity... we'll see later.

Will be gutted, feel like we are still on the up & improving every season. I hope he isn't away too much next season with Gats & all.

It's the only decision unless there was a massive clash of personalities or outlook at the interviews.

I'd be gutted but hats off to Wayne if this does come to pass.

Double feeling in this news...Pivac, and honestly all the Scarlets staff, deserve this call for how they worked in the last years..Jones and Hayward, one of my favorite coach in Europe for defence, did really well and continue with National team is a fisiological call..
The problem for Scarlets now is find a new staff, of course I think Pivac will help in this process.
Gutted for the announcing time, but for me this could be the moment for Wilson as Scarlets head coach..

Yes he really is the obvious candidate. I really do hope that Stevo steps up to head coach and doesn't go with Pivac. Filling the head coach role at the Scarlets for a few years will hopefully deliver the WRU a ready made successor to Wayne when the time comes.

I bet Wayne will take Stevo as backs coach with him - Wales would benefit enormously from the duo to best implement Pivac's gameplan. Wonder if we'll keep Shaun Edwards as defence coach or if he'll move on? He's had such a big impact and our defence and fitness has been top notch with him and Gatland in fairness.

So going by previous Welsh coaches. He’ll be like the second coming for 3 or so years then if we start losing a game or two he’ll be the worse thing to happen to Welsh rugby.

Looks like the Crys AGM on Thursday will be a quiet night in at the library... not!

I can see Edwards heading back to Wigan but I don't think the seasons match up & I don't think the WRU would want to lose him before the RWC.

The only bright side to this is we no longer have suffer aweful coaching from Howley.

Yes Stevo is a class above Howley which is not difficult to be honest. He is the obvious candidate but I would still like to see him as our No 1. For the WRU I would offer Larkham the role of attack coach making him an offer he can't refuse.

Gutted. They’ll be wasted with Wales.

We can only hope that we only lose one of team. Stevo to No 1 Byron & Ioan carry on & Dwayne come in to be attack coach. At least with Wayne in charge we can hope for some fairer treatment when it comes to release in International windows. He also has a better attitude with the press than the previous regime who usually came across as antagonistic.

Is there a risk we could lose Wayne at some point next season in terms of him joining up with the Wales set up throughout the year or do we think it will be a complete new start when he actually has starts the role?

Also we would be due some compensation as he only signed an extension recently.
