I'd love to see Fardy and Pienaar stay on as coaches over here too. I know that coaching won't suit everyone but they strike me as two guys who it would really suit and they both have particular areas of expertise that could make them very useful. In other words, it might be a bit risky to give them the keys to the kingdom as forwards or attack coach straight away, but they could build into it by helping with the lineout or kicking respectively and then help out wherever else was necessary.

Apart from Isa I can't really remember Leinster players talking any other NIE up as much as they do with Fardy.
Seems Pienaar is heading to Cheetahs, he took death of his sister in SA very badly and dont think he has played since. I suppose with just him left he has gone back to be with his father.
