What good recruitment did he do again? Did he sign any non cornerfleg clients?

Was Cooney not a D4 plant?

I was lambasted earlier in the week for stating that Bryn was near to the end of his rope. Now throw in the fact that he was apparently sent to the shop like a wee fella by Gibbes.
More questions than answers.

no this is what I mean by within a good framework - I think he’s technically fairly able, as in managing negotiations etc. I think the big thing that has been missing is no over-arching strategy - due to weak head coaches/CEO. So signing Piutau is an example of a smashing piece of recruitment for a club like Ulster - but also an example of a terrible piece of recruitment in the context of a club with limited resources that had plenty of good back 3 players, but had been crying out for back rows for years...

Piutau will go to anyone as long as you show him enough cash.

Bryn has done nothing to show he is a good negotiator.

Anyone who remotely follows Ulster would know that ulster didn’t need to sign a back 3 player when piutau was signed.

Hond wasn't exactly a signing... More like Bad Karma got us for something we did in a previous life.

Not sure what Rodders was... Bargain Bucket?

Didn’t Cooney ask to come to Ulster?

Don’t think anyone can claim credit for that if it was instigated by Cooney himself.
