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:

A braver call would be the opposite of the above.

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.

Especially in desert areas. :wink:
