Has Stuart Lancaster signed on the dotted line yet? Has worked wonders with Leinster this season and is apparently the main reason they are performing like they are.

As one of the favourites in the Heineken cup and top of the Pro 12, why not???

Simply because I believe he did an abject job with England and had hardly excelled at club rugby with Leeds. However he has probably learned a great deal in the past 12 months or so...

Didn't he extend his contract recently?

Lancaster didn't exactly take on a poor Leinster side though, we need an Eddie Jones not a Lancaster

Leinster were not in a great shape when he arrived, they finished bottom of their Heineken Cup pool last season and although they reached the Pro 12 final, they were very much second best.

This season is a huge improvement and one of the main reasons is Lancaster, he essentially runs the coaching with Leo Cullen doing the DOR role.

I've a feeling he has signed to stay on although couldn't find anything to confirm that, but I will be honest, I wouldn't be disappointed if he was to be the next Head Coach of Glos and he would certainly have a few points to prove following the England debacle.

I think we need a Coach who won't massage egos when they cock up.

Just need a coach that takes no crap, can't really imagine the players being grilled at half time by DH or LF when losing

The best 'coaches' in any modern day sport (or business), are the ones than adapt their style to a specific situation and to specific types of individuals. Sometimes, a general rollicking may be required, sometimes just a reiteration of technical points. Some individuals need a firm hand, some need their ego stroked.

'One size does not necessarily fit all"......

It's an urban myth that Alex Ferguson (as an example) gave the 'hair dryer treatment' all the time.
