Lots of talk about how great he is for them

and then this, which is probably more telling:

The 55-year-old former All Blacks fly-half held immense knowledge of how the team operated, their tactics and coaching techniques, Tew said, and the organisation would be keen to hang on to that.

My Cat is being mooted as the Summer tour backs coach and imho would/will be a much better choice anyway. I do hope his appointment happens and, in the same way that Lancaster went temp to perm, continues indefinitely.

It is rumoured that he is on his way to Bath, if he gets the England job permanent that will be two coaches that Bath wanted and lost to England.

Mike Catt may turn out to be the best backs coach ever, but can anyone explain why they think that's the case on record so far?
London Irish have hardly taken giant leaps forward with him in post.
