Getting rid of him at this point in the Season looks like character assasination and he'll find it difficult to convince anybody in England that he isn't still a Tiger at heart.
Wouldn't be surprised to see him in Galway at some point. Knows his rugby, understands reality of budgets and well used to coaching with a chip on his shoulder.
It's hardly a small budget though. JP, Manu, Toomua don't come cheap. I'd say it's not on the level of Sarries or Bath, but it looks significant.
I agree though that he'll find it tough to get another role in England. He's Tigers through and through.
