I think it's a bit disrespectful to think that SE would just be going to France for the"payday"! Have you watched France lately? It's a huge job and one that I am a million percent sure he would be taking on as a challenge long before worrying about the €!

France are a bit of a sleeping giant. They now have some promising young players coming through so you can’t blame any coach from taking them on. Massive potential and probably good money too.

You could say it's a bit disrespectful to ask "Why would Edwards consider us". Maybe because we are still one of, if not, the biggest club in England.

Or course we are,second most supported club in Europe below Bordeaux I believe. It was more a rhetorical one,but we certainly don't act like one,it's amateur hour at times!

Grauniad linking us to Cheika. (no link am at work).
Not much of a link to be honest. It's mostly just the journo giving his opinion. That opinion being that Chieka would be a good fit for Tigers and vice versa. There's nothing in there to suggest it might actually happen.
I saw Marika Vunibaka play

Saw Ben Kay on BT sport talked about ‘Geordie’s vision’ and a ‘Head coach that...’ sounds to me like they won’t be the same person next season. Though may be reading between the lines too much.

Well we certainly need one , as our present one simply is not working...
Apologies to a Tigers legend on the pitch but Geordan M has to be either replaced, removed or at least moved sideways ;
part of the problem ,certainly not the solution - the Premiership table tells no lies, we are absolutely woeful.
Nostalgia and sentimentality simply don't cut it in the professional game.
Still personally unsure about Mark Bakewell , seems highly regarded but what improvement have we actually seen long term ?

Could we possibly look to Georgia post World Cup ? Could do a hell of a lot worse than Milton Haig and Graham Rowntree - an ex Tiger ,I know, but if good enough for the British Lions then good enough for us.

Think GM will be the DoR with a top class head coach overseeing training and reporting to GM who on his recommendation will pick the side. More of a Deano role????

Unless I've missed something, there is a lot of speculation presented as fast on this forum.
