According to a couple of online sources including BBC. It looks like Conor O’Shea maybe parting company with Italy after RWC.

No! Quins much better than since he left and he hasn’t really excelled with Italy. International coach coming to work for Dai, I think not, unless he is planning to do a Lancaster.

I don’t completely disagree although it’s fair to say Quins are better since Kingston left rather than immediately after COS left.

As for an international coach coming to Wasps .... everyone would have been over the moon if Shaun had come smiling smiley

Yeah Quins went to pot after COS left. They were flirting with relegation last season under Kingston.

The Italian Rugby Federation says it is not seeking a new head coach after reports Franco Smith is to succeed Conor O'Shea after the Rugby World Cup.

Ex-Ireland full-back O'Shea has been in charge of Italy since 2016 and the FIR says it has no plan to replace him.

Instead, the federation says it is in talks to add to O'Shea's coaching team.
