Johan Ackerman's appointment by Gloucester for next three years takes a very good potential candidate out of the field.

Nothing I have seen from Mike Ford's career as a Head Coach has convinced me that that level is his natural level. A great defence coach, but what level Head Coach?

And as well as he got bath playing the suspicion was that like Dai Young he did a lot of the improvement via shopping with a big wallet.
Ruddock's tackle stats consistently too low for me to be taken seriously as a Six Nations blindside..... Ruddock's defensive stats don't stack up. - All Blacks Nil, Jan 15th, 2014

Hasnt Ford gone through/out the door of 2 clubs in less than a year? Plus think he likes VERY large pay cheques himself, nothing wrong with that but if thats what he gets out of bed for he might stay where he is
When he spreads his legs like that youd need dynamite or the Highland Light Infantry to shift him.

So is Felix, and he is already onboard. I think Jackman would be a good fit, with top14 head coach experience

Find it difficult to see what Jackman's CV offers to an Irish Province or National set-up. Reasonable evidence he is a good manager / organiser and possibly a good identifier of talent. But Coaching and consistency of performance....?

His biggest problem at this point is that it is very difficult to go back down a ladder facing forward and if you go down backwards you can get knocked off by people moving upwards quickly.

His best option may be punditry and he appears to be liked within media. If he gets back into coaching however, he should minimise his multi-tasking.

Jaysus both ROG and Jackman would be a serious step down from Rassie.
Couldn't see a ROG with Nienaber scenario working out either.

latter smacks of Penney & Foley

ROG seems to be taking a very measured/long term eye to his coaching ambitions

Pretty obvious now why Scannell benched. Should have thought of it, with Keats and Johnston both injured no cover at out half. Glad Scannell is there to cover.

Munster win a tight one in the end 10-7. ROM had a Le Roux moment.

Good to see that Munster at least are not demeaning the P12

http://munsterrugby.ie/preview/munster- ... -ulster-2/

Sweetham, JOD and TOD need big performances against a strong, hungry Ulster side. Should be a cracker!

Looking forward to seeing Stockdale, Treadwell & the Olding/Marshall combo.

Stockdale at 15 on Sat in for the injured Payne. Surprised Olding/Marshall combo retained, were like a revolving door for the Cardiff centres last week. Expect a comfortable Munster win. Ulster might sneak a 4T BP if Munster empty the bench etc.
