but is "welcome to reapply" if he so wishes. Clear as daylight that World Rugby have pretty much told the board what to do here. Any new coach must be approved by World Rugby.

All good I didn't think he was up to much chop anyway but I hope WR realise the coach they are about to kick out, a local, is quite popular with the local fans and any new coach from outside is going to be seen as the "world rugby guy" imposed on them from Dublin. ... t-for-sack
Sport: Manu Samoa coach set for sack
From Dateline Pacific, 3:00 pm today

Fuimaono Titimaea Tafua is set to be dumped as Manu Samoa head coach after the Samoa Rugby Union decided to readvertise the position.

Fuimaono was appointed to a second stint in charge in September last year, against the wishes of World Rugby.

But SRU General Manager of High Performance, Zane Hilton, told Vinnie Wylie that, despite securing World Cup qualification, a return of two wins from seven tests was not acceptable.

Zane Hilton says the Samoa Rugby Union expect to appoint a new Manu Samoa head coach with the next month.
