Will our new Head Coach be having any say in these appointments... just curious because it bought Kiss another year being allowed to bring his own men in .. enough to save Slogan his job I would say.

HammerTime wrote:Hadn't been to a Banbridge match in a few years but caught a few games this season and I couldn't believe the standard of rugby they were playing. Some of the handling was sublime. Soper himself just doesn't believe in kicking away possession unnecessarily and wants to run everything. I only made it as high as their 2nds when I was playing but some of my best friends were coached by him. Was speaking to one last night who rarely praises anything about anybody and he said he was a brilliant. Really takes a personal interest in players and made him believe in himself with confidence to get better and better.
A lot of club rugby is based on good ball handling skills but you do have to remember everything is at a slower pace so it is easier.
Anything I have heard about Soper though has been good and if Ulster can get a lot of those basics right then the side can only improve, a good acquisition in my view that won't have broken the bank and he is already familiar with a lot of players so will have an idea of their strengths and weaknesses.

Cockers you and I both know Schmidt and Nucifuhrer have more say than anyone. No doubt Dan will have a say, but ultimately we do what we are told.

Seems like a very good appointment to me.
It didn't take too long for me to reconcile my republican heritage with the diverse political and religious backgrounds of my teammates. There was no border in the Irish dressing room.

Depends on how you view it really.

Quick Question

Malone last year was described as Analyst and Skills Coach ( not forgetting at one time also defence coach) so , he is no longer skills coach and why ? Was he so poor that he had to be replaced as skills coach by Soper on a part time contract , and instead on being thee Analyst, he now is promoted to SENIOR ANALYST ?

Or is he just a very versatile something .

Okay We want to recruit a world class player so the players asked the following:

(P)Who’s the head coach mate,
BC: ah well we don’t have one yet he has an issue with his former employer and won’t start for a while, he has never been Head Coach before but he is a good chap
P: Okay so who is his assistant?
BC: well , erm , okay lots of chaps all good chap, very good chaps, Peel would be in charge at the moment plays a bash it up the middle limited style of rugby and has a full years experience as an assistant coach
P; okay who else
BC; we have. Apart time school teacher, nice bloke, won a schools cup three years in a row, and before that a underachieving country school, played average rugby in NZ and player AIL
P: Schools cup ?
BC: yep lots of money available to have rich kids dream of stardom , wins a cup and never plays at decent level again, but still they like fish, personal development as a player is frowned upon.
P: who else
BC: Niall Malone, awesome at every thing, highest score on COD in the office
P: okay what about off field, Physio and S&C
BC: oh we sacked them, as an offering to the fans , but then we found out the fans did not care
P: okay so who is the big boss
BC , mmmmmm , mmmmmmm we are not sure , so many levels, no direct control, no one accountable and a CEO who is a Cnut and won’t leave

P; okay I have to go, I have Stuart Lancaster on the phone

It could be worse we could be Connacht, they now have Andy Friend

Right luckily UR update their website around the same time of year we change our lineout calls and that hasn't occurred yet so:

http://www.ulsterrugby.com/team/managem ... xZeve4vxyw

Malone was Analyst and Skills Coach, and is now going to be HEAD Analyst. One assumes therefore he will be in charge of the Assistant Performance Analyst and the GPS Analyst. Any criticism or failing of our analysis function will henceforth be levelled at those two individuals and not at Mr Malone, its comforting to have a few layers isn't it?
