Before we all get too excited and blaming Bryn for the present mess is it not Nucibollocks should be getting the wrath of Ulster, he is the one who was picking McFarland and it is him who said they had a backup plan which we now see is Easterby.
As for GG and JD and Logan that was pronounced by D4 that they were all departing and wouldn't be surprised if others dispatched over the past season have not been their call as well, as for recruitment that all goes via Nucibollocks as well.

Hopefully this is just sticking 2 fingers up to the SRU ...they don’t get the buy out they had hoped for and they have to pay McF .
What’s the alternative to a buy out other than interim help through Easterby , at least we will have a better coached set of forwards and an improved defence. Back play however and game plan could be a disaster.

rooster... accept a lot of that GG, JD and Logan were all D4 calls and as for the next S&C Coach likely to be another from one or two already sounded out by Nucibollocks.. and yes Dan the Man is also undoubtedly a D4 signing as well and I doubt we did anything on that other than say thanks.. Should Bryn have kept his mouth shut.. YES

While Cunningham should have buttoned up the leak came from D4 to a favoured journalist.
We're from D4 and we are here to help you stands with the other great lies, the cheques in the post and of course I'll still love you in the morning darling.
Can it really get worse. I renewed my season ticket as i thought the crisis was over when Logan's departure was announced and the D4 cavalry was on its way.what a cool am i .

Easterby will provide lots of unseen coaching just as he did lots of unseen stuff as a player. I still don't understand how people can see the unseen work as, by definition, you can't actually see it. My feeling is that he did a lot of very high level bluffing.

Honest to god, they say it’s darkest before the dawn and I honestly can’t see how it could get any darker than this.

I had thought a ST might be an option again but here we are for the second time in a few years with a caretaker manager for half the season. Our HECcampaign will be all but over when Dan arrives. Farcical....

I’m tellin ya, it’s all planned out. Out of the HC by Jan, Dan comes in and he changes things up but it too late and we end up failing to make the HC cut for 19/20, we draw Perpignan and Brive in the Parker Pen - it’s about getting the boys back playing at Ravers. Praise be.

Bryn is far from blameless in this whole crapstorm of a year, but I don't think he said anything publicly that was out of order.
I thought at the time, that he was speaking to us, Ulster supporters and telling us that everything was in hand, just give it a couple of weeks.
Someone with inside knowledge let the name slip to a journalist and caused the furore. Could have been a second or third hand tip off, who knows.

Have we any reason to believe that Scotland would have released Dan any earlier if we had asked nicely?

Me too, it seems a classic ploy to tell brother Jock, just you work away lads and pay for two forwards coaches, we're sorted. In any event, will do no harm for our forwards in particular to get some of what Easterby has to offer, her very clearly knows his business.

I think we'll see Big Dan before too much longer. Jocks bluff has been called.

I think the back play could be more sorted this year with Payne in the role along with Peel.

The major problem is a lack of decent cover across the backline

Bunny Boy as forwards coach is fine by me planning phases and set plays and to some extent the team selects its self until injury intervenes .

We can't manage the complete basics of recruitment (understanding notice periods, negotiating releases/compensation, managing media announcements) - I mean this is basic threshold stuff for running a business. And this just a week or two after all the interviews about the IRFU stepping up to the plate and making long term decisions to put Ulster right blah blah.

This is such a bad idea, for so many reasons. If things go badly, he doesn't have to worry too much, because he doesn't have a lot of skin in the game, and he can basically go through the motions and hand the mess over to McFarland. If things go really well under Easterby, then you're disrupting a successful camp after a couple of months - and it creates a bit of a rod for McFarland's back. Regardless of whether things go well or badly, at the back of everyone's mind is the fact that change is coming (AGAIN) - he is basically a lame duck from day 1, and the players have another 6 months in limbo before the 'actual' head coach arrives.

Shambles.

PJ was screwed months ago - why the f*** have we not got a replacement signed up?
JD & GG were sacked what 6 weeks ago? Why was that not done on the last day of last season, and replacements in place for the start of pre-season?
Likewise for Logan - apparently the IRFU have known for months that they were sacking him, why haven't we a new man in situ for the start of the season?

And for McFarland, if he was so far ahead of the rest of the field that you want him and nobody else, talk to the SRU about what needs to happen to get him released, and get the fecking job done. Is there a clown emoji??


Here are a pair of clownshoes for you pal.

After that pile of whinging nonsense, stride about your house in these, get used to them and give Billy Smart a call. Nice raincoat by the way.

I'd hate to see that backline, Arnold out, his thuggish attacks repeatedly on Leali'ifano closed the door on Arnold for me. Scumbeg.

Great stuff, if true. They won't want Dan sniffing around their Scottish camps that close to the 6N.
