So what do we reckon it could be? My money is on a firm start date for the stadium.

Why all this speculation about Chris Stirling? I support the coaching team we have fully. If I was one of them I would be a little peed off

When Chris was with us before his title was High Performance Manager. If he was to return, presumably he'd be more of a big picture man allowing Gav and Paves to concentrate on the squad, training, match prep etc.

Whatís a high performance manager? Is it worth the money, an extra level of expense, really donít see the point

All I would say is that he did a hell of a job when he was here before - and he has vast experience at a very high level in NZ. He's also turned things around at Leeds in a very short time.

ďThe pointĒ surely is that we lost seven games on the trot after a fantastic start to the season.

A Director of Rugby/High Perf Manager and a coach are very distinct roles. Just about every other club in the top 2 divisions has one which reflects that distinction.

A coach - however dedicated - can hardly be expected to do full justice to his skills/tactics job on the training field with the squad whilst somehow also trying to manage the medical, conditioning , analysis, media, budget, recruitment, contracts, dual registered liaison etc etc etc.all of which determine ultimate success or failure on match days.
