I think it's decisive. Write off the rest of this season and start building for next year. A coach joining in the summer would be too late for the following season. Time will tell whether he is the right man.
I thought Tigers played well on Sunday - probably helped by the absence of Youngs. Andy Goode was publicising Matt O'Connor coming in a month ago, so Mauger has achieved this trophy knowing he was about to be sacked.
Poisonous place, Leicester, for all sorts of reasons.
westwaleswasp Words fail me. They were supposed to be by-words for stability, a paragon of a well-run club. Increasingly they are becoming Glaws Mk II.
As with Manchester Utd they are struggling to come to terms with no longer being the richest club in the league. Wasps, Saracens, Bath and even Exeter can out hit them financially. Bristol would be able too if they ever go their act together.
For too long Leicester got away with not paying their players the market rate or treating them sympathetically. Wasps arriving in Warwickshire couldn't have happened at a worse time.
They need fundamentally reassess how they are run.
