New DoR?

Rumoured on RugbyInsideLine that we have signed Chris Stirling as new DoR. Currently at Hurricanes but has spent time at Pirates. Interesting, if true. Didn't see that coming.

Whatever happens, given the absence of communication from the club, unless you have xray eyes you won't see it coming!

Is he coming with most of the hurricanes squad? I have not heard of him but he is working for a top side there.

Interesting times ahead I hope!

Looks more like a backroom role to me.

Can't see it. He'd want paying for a start

Seems he's experienced at identifying and developing talent.

But can he hang on to it for us?

Reading the rugby paper this morning Chris Stirling has joined on a two year contract. It also mentions our paper thin squad andwith the departure of Marc Thomas and Ben West as well and no new signings announced he will not have much to work with. With Charlie Beech also going to Coventry the way they are performing at the moment he will be playing against us next season

If true, then the appointment looks like we are aiming for a promotion push in about two years, using the talent Chris has identified/developed supported by imported players. As there is no point in aiming for second place, I expect another austerity season next year as, so long as relegation is avoided, it's better to keep wage monies for the "big push".

If you are aiming to be promoted within 2 years, then you need to have core of the team in place next season, the players need to bed in, you then add in the 2nd season for the push, if not it will be a continious cycle of failing.

Don't disagree at all, Loosie. I expect the "Promotion Push" to start in two years but I believe (as I said in the State of the nation topic) that Promotion is a three year campaign. Realistically we could be in the premiership in 4 to 5 years time.

Does it seem strange that the new DOR joins on a two year contract, whilst J-Lowe and our forwards coach only get one year contract extensions, according to the article,a a reward for getting us to third position on a shoe string budget. Canít help feeling that itís players we need rather than another non playing person to pay.

Letís just hope he brings some hurricanes players with him....

Everyone is saying two or three years but I think a lot is happening that we haven't heard about yet and could be sooner than that.

Sure things are happening, whether us mere supporters get to hear about what those things are is another thing. Question is whether it is going to be good things happening or not so good. I try and be optimistic but....

In The Rugby Paper it said he was coming "in a High Performance role". Nowhere have I seen DoR mentioned - only in various posts by people on this forum or fans on Twitter.

True. That's was his Hurricanes role. I would love to know the plan and who they want where and when

When he was at Pirates he was known as High Performance Manager or Director. What I do know is that he is a great bloke and will work his socks off for you. Don't think he would have left Pirates if our stick in the mud Council had given permission for our new stadium at the time.

btw Gelbel I used to post on the Igloo too. Hope all is well with you.
