Next English Coach?

Post by Mr. Very Popular »

Plenty of coaches would jump at the chance of the English job, but who would actually be a good fit right now?

Eddie O'Sullivan is knocking around.
They've lost out on MOC though.

I don't want to see him go, but this would be the same kind of job that Mallinder did for Saints when he joined us.

After a root and branch review the RFU have decided that Andy Farrell wil be best to provide continuity during this transition phase...

I hope Lancaster doesn't resign/get sacked, he's done so much good over the past 4 years, its a shame he's made a couple of bad calls in the WC and is going to be judged on that.

He asked to be judged on it. Should be no surprise to him.

RFU should deservedly find a place for him though as he's a good guy who works well with young players..

In many ways he has made england worse. sure they are more likeable with a better 'culture' apparently but the fact remains he has just presided over the worst english performance in the world cup and has not won anything in 4 years.

The much derided Martin johnson can point to a far better England coaching CV.

He's been bad with the senior squad, but he's done a lot of work throughout the English structures. He's not a head coach, but he clearly has a huge amount to offer.

Johnson's 6 Nations win depended a lot on the lack of competitiveness of the other teams as well as the performances of the English side. They didn't have to win it on points difference, like Lancaster has every 6N.

Not that I want to be accused of defending Lancaster especially - I don't think he HAS to go, but something must change, and I want him to be able to demonstrate that he can learn how to operate under pressure. If he's to keep his job he simply has to win the 6 Nations, and do so convincingly. Andy Farrell on the other hand is a non-negotiable. Get him out of there pronto. Rowntree also has to justify his paycheque rapidly

Not a bad call actually, but I think they'll go hunting further afield, they need someone who is just going to tear it all apart, see what works and start again.

Rob Baxter please. Although I'd be excited to see what Wayne Smith could do with our back line.
Perhaps both with Smith as the top man.

He'd have to be one of the candidates. He has experience taking a side that is not performing and getting it to perform, he's won silverware, and it could be interesting to see what he can do with the resources of English rugby. However there are some definite questions about just how good he is, how much experience he has of test rugby (zero, I believe), and whether he can coach an England team to win consistently even when what seems to be he default strategy (run over them) is not viable.
