Re: Borthwick

I will put in my 2penneth if I can - Borthwick great appointment as Head Coach and IMHO it is right to move Smurph to DOR but as many people have mentioned, it is the division of responsibilities which will decide the success or failure of this structure. For me, HC decides training methods, style ...

Re: Borthwick

The idea of a HC in charge of training and style of play, with a DoR in charge of selection sounds very strange... DOR's having less on the training ground influence is a common thing now with how much behind the scenes work there is in player management and bureaucracy. McCall at Sarries is a case...

Re: Borthwick

The idea of a HC in charge of training and style of play, with a DoR in charge of selection sounds very strange... I’d imagine it looks like this. Murphy sets his vision of how he wants Tigers to play. Borthwick then coaches the players and sets training to match that vision. Murphy will be present...

Re: Borthwick

Here’s some questions answered from Murphy. "When will he arrive?" - “we don’t know definitively, Steve has international commitments he needs to fulfill. We’re hoping it’s asap” "How will your role change?" “I imagine Steve will run, as soon as he feels comfortable, the on field side of it, putting...

Re: Borthwick

So it matters not that a new head coach is not here for preseason? If this is the case, then it’s not the perfect situation. However, I’d prefer to have Borthwick from November than not at all. I’d like to know what you’d have done differently to get Borthwick here fully for preseason once recognis...

Re: Borthwick

Strikes me as very odd that it was posted on this forum back in Oct/Nov when folks thought Borthwick would join post 6 N that he had to give six mths notice? In which case how has that now stretched out until October, when Borthwick has clearly been signed up months ago?? Why in the heck does this ...

Re: Borthwick

Apparently, the RFU have said he isn’t going to Japan - more good news. It should be said - Simon Cohen worked tirelessly on this - first to get the deal done some time ago and, more recently, to get the earliest possible start date. It may not be the 'done thing' on this forum but :smt038 :smt038 ...

Re: Borthwick

BBC news says he will start after 6N, which implies directly after 6N. But yes, that could mean 7 months after the 6N if anyone wants to be pedantic... It’s not being pedantic. It was announced yesterday that Borthwick will leave his role with England in November so to say he will join Tigers after...

Re: Borthwick

Well one thing is certain Murphy is the goose that laid the golden nest egg. I simply cannot see any justification whatsoever for his promotion or qualification other than as a player he is a Tigers great. Hope Borthwick thrives and Tigers prosper. Well thankfully it’s not you who has to make the d...

Re: Borthwick

Pleased its finally been confirmed, and also pleased with the Murphy DOR appointment as he's been clearly been doing some good stuff behind the scenes even if out and out couching is not his best attribute. We'll have to see just how good Borthwick is as a head coach, but hopefully this means we ca...

Great news, starting after 6N. Looking forward to a new era.
Straight after the Six Nations or when his international commitments actually finish in November? It doesn’t actually state this.

Re: Borthwick

Head coach - perfect!! Murphy to DoR - convenient!! Murphy to DOR is what a lot of people have been looking for, his skill set will suit that position better. I see it working much as Humphreys and Ackerman do at Gloucester. Great how some posters can always see negatives from such a big positive U...
