I expect Lancaster might be on the list of possible replacements. Hopefully, Leinster can hold on to him. He's doing a great job so far.

Robbie Deans was apparently spotted in Ranelagh having a coffee with Saints CEO Mark Dalton on Sunday. Coincidence?


Unconfirmed.

I'd expect Pat Lam and Gregor Townsend to feature in the betting for this one.

Wonder if Geordan Murphy would be considered? He might not even have to move house - less than an hour from Welford Road to Franklin Gardens.

Saints will probably want a big name.

He's going to Cardiff isn't he? Can't see the Saints fans being too happy either. Never a big fan of Malinder on a personal level but I doubt he'll be out of work long.

Certainly hope that Stuart Lancaster isn't attracted to this post but would understand if they approach him. This is the absolute heartland of (successful) English rugby where real values normally rule. But you've gotta keep winning. Sad, but reality.
