We need a head coach in place the minute Gibbes fecks aff.



Pre season with Peel ... i.e running on sand dunes while Stu practises running into things.
Might need to use the Piutau money on balls. McCloskey will be offloading them all into the fecking ocean.

This is a great move - announcing that at least one coach will be here when next season starts, and a relief to the players, at least we'll have someone here to open up the changing rooms for them.


Shane Logan, Ulster's Chief Executive, added via an untraceable web link somewhere in Europe:

"I'd like to congratulate Bryn and our Professional Game Board for conducting such a thorough process that has led to this appointment.

"We have worked closely with the IRFU and are very pleased with the outcome."


After this the transmission went dark ... but our reporter said he counted all the Logies out and counted them back again.

Highly rated he may be but he will be cutting his teeth as a head coach with Ulster.

The thought of Peel and Dundon conducting pre-season and taking us through to January 2019 is as bewildering as it is frightening. Have we learnt nothing? Would any other professional rugby team put up with it?

The lack of a start date from UR is another sign of their disdain for supporters.

Any bets on Jared being announced on the coaching ticket as defensive coach?

From the twitter world:

Murray Kinsella‏ @Murray_Kinsella · 3 minutes ago

Although there is a nine-month notice period in Dan McFarland's contract with Scotland, the expectation is that he will arrive at Ulster following the summer tour.

Makes sense for all parties for the move to happen at that stage and expect that to be the case.

UR are going to synchronise complete World domination of Rugby union with a successful vote
in favour of the reunification of the 32 counties. Shane will become the first Tioseach of
a united Ireland as a reward for everything he has done for everybody in solving all their
problems and granting all our wishes.

Or they just don't know the start date.

The new fella is on tour in Canada, USA and Argentina in the summer - I imagine he'll want to make sure he's working his notice period to cover that, at least.

1. Interesting candidate - knows the system here so fewer surprises for him. I suspect he knows a bit more about the politics of IRFU than your man who spent a summer in Greyabbey so I hope that means less chance of him fecking off mid contract.

2. Gregor Townsend - I trust his judgement more than I trust Nucifora, Bryn, Logan and anyone else in the system.

2. Start date - Jan? wtf? I thought that UR considered seasons finish in Jan because that is how long they cover fly half for. Hope Gregor gets his replacement in the summer and agrees an early release, however if not he will be needed for the AIs. I'm not sure what use the SRU would have for him between Nov-Jan though arguably a HCs most important months are July & August

3. Another addition to the coaching team? Jared?

4. Logan - publicly distancing himself from the most important decision his organisation has taken since 14 April, a spineless joke
