They are now saying that Alex King is the leading contender as interim backs coach over the summer for England's tour of SA.

I have my suspicions too. Maybe we should set a hare running and see whether it appears anywhere.

I have a feeling that some of the stuff we have been reading about over the past few days started here as an opinion or theory and gained credibility when it appeared in the papers.

Maybe we should set a hare running and see whether it appears anywhere. It would be fun to see if we could do it.

I agree with you Rifleman.

He would be a great shout though.

anyone who watched the rugby club last night - the boys in the studio seemed to come to the conclusion that the new backs coach needs to:

- have more experience than Farrell at top flight coaching

- But not be so experienced that it would overshadow Lancaster

- Have good chemistry with the other coaches.


My first thought was - there's not too many coaches who fit that bill.

My second thought was - Kinga does.

King and Lancaster have quite similiar personalities.

Both smart, softly spoken and hold the attention of those around them.

Could well be a match made in heaven.

Would he have the respect of the players? I'd like to think so.

We did this a few years ago, and it worked with the "Rugby Times" or whatever it was - can't remember the story now though.

Worth another go ;-)

Check his career stats - there won't be ANYONE in the England line-up that has stats to match Alex's.

I had the pleasure of donning the cap he was given by ERC on the occasion of his 50th European start. There aren't that many people who have one of these.

European Cup winners medals and Premiership medals galore.

And he has shown some skills at coaching with Clermont, winning the A League 2 years in a row (I think).

I'd have him in an England role tomorrow.
