Craig Hammond confirmed as new Nottingham Head Coach - currently coaching Hong Kong Mens XV. Former Nottingham player so good appointment.
So am I right in thinking he worked with our newest coaching recruit Leigh Jones during his time there? Possibly strengthening ties there?
Wouldn’t be surprised.

Another Hong Kong coach has also gone to Uppingham

Do we know if Leigh Jones has actually started in his post yet? I understand he was due to start on the 1st May (I believe) but a little odd the club hasn’t mentioned anything for it.

Anyone know what happened to Ollie Smith? He started coaching and then left Escher under a cloud not been seen since.

Presumably he's still climbing the monk's endless staircase

Presumably there will be a 3rd leg, 4th leg, 5th leg and extra time until such time as Saracens have won. The good news is that they've sold all the tickets for the after match event in the evening, 'Not an evening with Maro Itoje'. Mako Itoje will not be making an attendance at the after match event 'not an evening with Mary Itoje' and will be paid £95,000 by Lucy Wray's Company, for not attending'.
