Leicester have been inundated with approaches from coaches ready to step into Matt O’Connor’s shoes, with as many as 64 applications submitted in the 24 hours after his departure.

Geordan Murphy, who has been at the club for 21 years, has been installed as Interim Head Coach but he told The Rugby Pod he hasn’t been given any indication as to how long he’ll be in the role for and other CVs have been flooding in.

“It’s been a crazy week. I was helping out with the A-League last Monday night over in Loughborough when I found out and pretty much everything blew up after that,” he said.

“They haven’t said [how long I’ve got]. From my point of view, it’s on a week by week basis at the moment. I was told when Matt went that there were 64 applicants within a day or a day and a half, so I think a lot of people threw their name in the hat.”

It's gonna be an interesting season that's for sure! I'd be asking what Joseph is doing after the RWC!

By all means do so (unless GM makes such a success of it to make such considerations moot) but none of it will matter until the board identify the things that are wrong and put a plan in place to fix them - and stick to the plan.If they carry on with their knee-kerk reactions, without addressing the real issues then it's just a sticking plaster on a broken limb.
