I'm calling it now that Paul O'Connell will be involved in the new senior team coaching ticket.

29 year old Felix Jones is somehow favourite with the bookies for the head coach job at Munster! Good lord!!
He'll be 30 by December though.

:lol:

Two important things to remember from that...

1) I was full sure that he was with Fintan Drury and in my head that acted as confirmation.
2) It made Paddy Power 20e better off.

Martin Johnson not available?

In general remember bookies respond to the bets being placed not just their own forecasts. If its not a Plumtree or Umaga ot would be startling. And a disaster. Erasmus has made the job attractive again along with single base
When he spreads his legs like that youd need dynamite or the Highland Light Infantry to shift him.

Plumtree went back home for family reasons we are told, Umaga is supposedly out of contract at the end of the Super 15 season so anything is possible. When the "geniuses" that run Munster rugby and the IRFU get together who knows what they will come up with.

They did alright the last time. Erasmus was a major coup. The quality of coaches taking up positions in the Pro 12 over the last year or so is very encouraging for the league.
Munster is still a big deal.

And a camel is an evolutionary marvel.

They got it right on Rassie but got it badly wrong on other occassions. Whoever they choose needs to be experienced and if we are to remain at the top table he must be a top coach. Another Rassie Erasmus without the escape clause would be nice :D

Penney was good too. Would be a good choice now if it wasn't for the history.

Vern Cotter if Toulon go down.
Bernard Jackman
Lancaster
Rog
Flannery
Tony Brown
Felix Jones is just a stalking horse.

POC would get the job if the Munstar hurray henry's got their way and it'd be a disaster.
Nucifora will block it.

Wayne Smith would be a superb fit for Munster and .......look at the timing.

Not a bad suggestion - make sure you email it to Nucifora and cc the Cork/Limerick mafia.

Paul O'Connell would not be a good choice at the moment by any stretch of the imagination for the head job as he needs to work his way up and gain coaching experience at the level required. What is needed is an experienced coach who can stamp his authority on the squad hopefully keep the momentum started by Anthony Foley and continued by Rassie Erasmus going .The likes of Flannery , Felix and POC should learn their craft before thinking of being head coach

There's a good chance that the new coach will be someone most of us have never heard of. I don't think I knew who Schmidt, Penney or Anscombe were before they came to the provinces. Matt O'Connor was just a name to me. I didn't know anything about him.

So it seems Antipodean assistants at other clubs and NZ U20s coaches might be a good bet

A decent bit of experience combined with the ambition to make a name for himself would be the ideal mix, but then I still believe in Santa Clause :D :happy clapper:
