It's been a privilege to have spent the last month with the amazing people of @LiRFC Unfortunately I could not commit to being a full time Technical Director.

I would like to wish the club and all their loyal supporters, all the best and hope that the talented young coaches working @LiRFC won't be lost to the club.

Was good for the club in his first spell.

Was great for the club in his second spell.

Has been a huge disappointment in his third spell.

The second tweet surely is a nod the possible departure of the coaching staff. Makes sense for him to go now and possible give potential new guys a chance to work with the squad and see whatís going on. May also help with recruitment if big figures like kidney and kiss are in place.

Venter willl always be a LI legend, watching him control the game against saints to win our real slverware. Itís a shame he couldnít commit full time in the beginning, when he did join full time we had more of an edge to us, with more time we could have turned that into points.

Always has my greatest respect,just don't know how he fits everything into his life.He was just spreading himself to thin in the end, on the rugby side.The coaches are contracted so they have the choice of walking away,or playing wait and see,pretty awful unless Bath or Wasps have been on the blower offering a job.

Thanks BV. Lets face it, you didn't have to travel halfway around the globe once a month and spend hours on Skype etc for hours each week for what's probably a fairly meagre consulting fee compared to what he could generate elsewhere . I suspect he's had an immensely positive impact on LI and probably responsible for our best plays this season. Lets not forget the two recent SA star signings who have made such a difference. Sad to see him go.

He was a fantastic player to have on our side. The fact that all our opponents hated him made him even more special. Sad not to leave on a high but as PV says, he is massively in credit.

He will always be a part of the club. Heís one of those you could always call to help if needed. At this moment in time, Iím sure he understands that we need more involvement which he canít give
