McCall asks Sanderson to resist England temptation

Cannot do link unfortunately, according to the Gaurdian, McCall is urging Alex Sanderson to resist the temptation of joining England, now obviously I'd like Alex to stay but you cannot get in the way of development, so a long as Alex stays for the correct reasons, because it would be an unbelievable achievement for Alex Sanderson to coach at international level

He should stay. Smally will be the next Ireland coach after the WC, and Alex will be bumped up to be our DOR.

He should stay because we look after our coaches & players & this doesnít seem to happen at England. But he is a top bloke & top coach so I hope he makes the right decision for him

Linky Thing

Sanderson hasn't been approached but I guess he is the obvious successor to Gustard.

Smally saying that AS should become Sarries DOR one day. But if Alex does get the call it will be Alex's decision and he won't stand in his way .

Why oh why would ANYBODY want to be part of the England coaching set up.

Think it through....Yoda has a poor world cup. the blazers at rfu terminate his contract early....New man brings in his own team....You are out of a job...

You would have to be mad to leave a club like us where you are respected and destined for bigger things.

although to take a 15 month loan to do it with the clubs approval would also be a sensible option.

Alex gets the experience - good for the club longer term
Alex gets a guaranteed return - good for him

Or go and talk to the Exeter defence coach?

Do Exeter even employ a defence coach? They play with like 80% possession

Hopefully it wasnít just media talk, but after the game it was great to hear Alex say that he didnít want the England defence job, and that heís here for 5 years as a minimum!

Andy Farrell said that a few years ago, and a week later was gone to England. Let's hope Alex is less persuadable.

Exactly, hence my media talk point. Donít know if itís true, but Andy Goode on the rugby pod said that Jones and Alex donít like each other anymore, so I hope thatís true too!

Alex was originally a genuine Eddie prodigy, didnít he arrange for him to have coaching stints in Australia?

Yeah, he didn't have that great a time seemingly.

Well hopefully the togetherness of Sarries and the love for each other persuade Alex Sanderson to stay with Sarries, probably the most celebrations I've seen from him and Mark in any final whilst on the touchline

Watching Mark finally breakdown and show happiness at performance in public is one of my favourite things about winning finals! It takes things like our drubbing of Clermont in the semi to get even more than the briefest of smile flickers

...but we wouldn't have him any other way!
