That’s a yes from me too!

P.S I think France are very interested in Hansen to replace Brunel.

The fact that he hasn't coached top level sports since 2014

Whoever it is has got plenty of work to do. Perhaps one in one of the first sessions they could introduce the concept of tackling to the squad.

The first thing that the squad should be introduced to is......

.........each other.

Because right now they look like a bunch of strangers with the odd 'clique' playing together.

Yup! In the future they must wear their shirts back-to-front so that can see the names!! Secondly, their Mums' must sew in name tags into their playing kit so they know who they are too!!

For all the talk of a defence coach coming in we've been pretty poor in attack too these past few weeks.

We did score four in Paris. Should have scored more today (two blown lineouts 5m from the line is criminal). If we shore up our defence then we can apply pressure without the ball and we'll see more turnovers further up the field. Our backs on turnover ball will wreak havoc.

Not at the moment, far two panicky with the ball, plus Cole got in the way of a counterattack once or twice yesterday.
