Anyone old enough to remember our defence coach from our last 'golden era'....he's just turned up locally here in the West Midlands as head coach at Kenilworth....

Blimey, it's a long way from coaching France down to level 7 of the English game.

Dave 'Francophile' Ellis - also coach of French national side. I believe he brought in the rugby league style 'line defence'.

Checking back, Ellis was defence coach for Gloucester in arguably our best period July 2001 - Jun 2005.

His history is quite interesting.

At least Eddie Jones has secured the services of Mitchell at some rate and a half.
