He probably has aspirations to be a head coach one day. The opportunity to work in a different system with a top class coaching team would be deemed as a positive for most - certainly not a demotion.
I'll die before I surrender, Tim.

That's a strong appointment if the speculation is correct. You don't get to coach at Six Nations level for over a decade if you have nothing about you.

I know feck all about McBryde but given his pedigree and our brains trust's recent record for hiring I'd be optimistic.

I wonder is Leo moving closer to a Director of Rugby job. That's a lot of experience to bring in to the setup for him to be exclusively looking after the scrum

For Scrum Coach read scrum, maul, breakdown and lots more bits and pieces. In McBryde's case it may also include line-out throwing. To have survived alongside Gatland for a decade, this guy will have a lot to offer.

Assuming it's true, I'd say Lancaster played a big role in getting McBryde in. He'd know what he's about from coming up against him all the time in the 6N.

Plus I have a horrible habit of underestimating the Welsh national team due to their domestic form.


Firstly so much this. I think most of us suffer from this particular problem.

Agree with your assessments. Regardless if you like Gatland or not he's a winner and wouldn't have kept this guy about if he wasn't doing the goods.

As for mildy saying this is a step down you could have argue the same thing about Lancaster who was thrown aside after the England world cup debacle and we all know how that worked out.
