It must be clearer than ever who would be the best to take over after joe. This year will probably be the clincher

Now that would be fun to watch.   I presume the IRFU plan is to have one in every province.  Eventually.    

A Rog in every Province??.... the airwaves couldn't cope!  Morsels of Buddha-like knowledge after every game.....

Hey Guns in relation to another thread where the discussion of nationality got some people exercised can I just say as a Corkonian I would like us to be completely independent from the rest of you (admittedly I do understand the rest of this island feels the same). Given that do we count as a nation or just some deluded people who speak with funny accents. A bit like our neighbours

If Schmidt were to go then I would not be against Lancaster taking up the role. I think he has done wonders with Leinster and he seems to have learnt a lot since his departure from England team.

Its way too early to talk about ROG for Ireland, needs another few years for me.

Cullen has been the biggest surprise for me. Like with Foley at Munster, I thought it was too early for him but he has done an excellent job and could also easily lead the national team.

Yeah Id be happy to see Lancaster take it on. I'm sure Rog is a good coach but I think whoever gets the Ireland job should have some head coach experience. Lets see how O'Gara does as a head coach first. The great thing about Schmidt is he is involved right across the board in terms of management and coaching. Someone like Cullen or even Conor O'Shea may only be as good as their assistant coaches hard to tell.

Maybe the IRFU should appoint both ROG and Humphreys as coaches, just like the old days.

Gatland has unfinished business in Ireland. Maybe another stint before he heads back to NZ? He could maybe fix the Leinster/Munster divide and get fans supporting Ireland rather than their clubs. Heck, he might even get Connaught onside if he picks their players.

Connaught is out West where the Corkie chavs go on their holidays. As for your Olympic chances, you all have to hang on to the skinny smackhead Nordies boxing for NI and UK. Like the US (and unlike their skills in othe international sports) you have All-Just Us events that the world doesn’t notice.

There goes the Halcyon days of Rugby in Ireland.

Oh well, back to the muck, grey cement stadiums and pitch invasion ref lynchings that is the grand auld GAA. You get tired of pitch invasion ref lynchings after a while. Boring.

Maybe you heard more of it than I did.  But to me he seemed the most calm I've heard him in a long time when career questions crop up... as if the decision, in consultation with his family, had been made a long time ago in truth and he was just enjoying his coaching more now without the pressure of.......................................

....................hmmm...................without the pressure of having to put off an inevitable move back to his homeland to have an inevitable stab at coaching the All Blacks.  That is to say, a man who has finally decided that he's going home to try for the Big One.

..... or

is it the serenity of realising his ambitions don't really head in that direction, that his family have settled in, that he values the more direct HELP he's giving the Irish system rather than just sustaining a purring beast that is the ABs (who let's face it, would still for perhaps another decade at least operate at the highest of levels even with one or two dud coaches)?  The AB system just doesn't rely on one Head coach...it's a machine.  The coach is virtually a figurehead.

Anyway, you could very well be right though, rodder.  But I'm hoping I detected a man finally at peace with himself and his current choices in life.  I pray!...

I fear you are right for two reasons.

Firstly he recently remarked on the Irish coaching team that no system is built around one person which sounded like he meant if he leaves life will go on

Secondly the fact that he is waiting until the Nov series keys games are over to make the announcement. The logic for this is presumably because the decision whatever it may be would probably be too much of a distraction going into these big games however, if his decision is to leave that would probably be a much bigger distraction for the players.

Whatever he decides Im fairly sure he has already made his mind up.

Damn.

The Easterbuy thing is just a hunch. I always assumed that Farrell might be the man being groomed but the fact that Easterbuy took charge for the Italy squad and was seconded to Ulster for preseason makes me think he's on the fast track.

Even recent comment by Sexton suggested that the players are gearing up for the post Schmidt era.

An interesting thing came across in that interview, Joe seemed very satisfied with what he has achieved (the GS, 6N, test series in Australia, beating the ABs) ..... bar one thing - the lack of RWC success, that QF defeat in 2015 really bugs him it still.

I suspect he plans to dedicate everything to this over the next year and go out on it banking this team he's built has a great chance of doing well.

Interesting. If Schmidt is contemplating coming home its a big move for the family. Coaching wise Id see him joining the panel with Hansen staying on overseeing things until Schmidt has got at least a season looking at Super and Mitre10 rugby up close.

Fozzie is probably seen as the next in line within the current panel so there’d be a squeze on. Schmidt has a very hands on technique and that would go down well in the Wayne Smith type role, which I think we are missing. Hopefully Smith is dragged back in for the World cup now hes had a chance to view the side from outside the circle.

Id see Schmidt as head coach by next world cup, certainly the one after that. Thanks to Ireland and Leinster he has a long future in this game at the top, good for family and everyone. thumbsup

Good to see something real coming the other way.

Yeah, should be a lot of movement of both players and coaches after World cup. Schmidt could stay with Ireland if they win the world cup, apply fir the Lions tour (SA?) and defend his 6N if they win it again. Ample reason to both stay and go if that happened. Leaving Ireland as World champs has an aura of class about it, in good hands kinda thing.

If Schmidt is in the market to move he will be offered two or three times what he is currently earning by the RFU to take the reins at England - scary prospect?

Presumes though that all coaches are simply chasing money. Virtually every AB coach that has existed for the last ...10-20 years?... could have been paid way above what they earned or now earn by RFU.

If his decision is that he's going, I'd say he has already decided where to. Yeah, maybe that might be England.... if so it was a very hush hush steal. I hope the hell he stays. We'll even make him President of the Dalkey Coffee Morning Book Club Casual Millionaire Pink Cardigan Club, if that would swing it?
