The latest rumour from Rugby Inside Line re Falcons is that John Wells is looking to go into teaching and Falcons are after Dorian West to replace him.

I think most supporters wont want West at KP.

It sounded like West was the main problem at Saints and that is coming from former players. smiling smiley

John Wells remit at KP is defence coach and Dorian West is forwards coach at Saints
This would not be a like for like swap
If Wells was to leave let’s have Laycock promoted to the defence role and let Micky Ward assume more responsibility

I wouldn’t think it would happen as it goes against what DR is trying to do eg give people a chance, promote from within etc. Take Walder being head coach for example!

Unless he's wanting to retire or there's been a major falling out and he's being let go I can't see this happening at all. Why on earth would Wells want to leave a premiership rugby job?

I'll back whatever the club decide.

West was considered a big part of the success Northampton were having...however looks like they have all become stale and are causing internal conflict now.

It may be that a new fresh challenge would revitalise West...

Im pretty sure not many were happy with Wells joining us from a failed England set up, but he has come through pretty well.

Be interesting to see what happens as this rumour has been doing the rounds for a few months now...so there may well be something in it.
