That's good news I reckon - I was worried about the "technical advisor" role. DoR seems more permanent. Good luck Mr Kidney!

says to me that he has run his rule over the club and thinks he can help/is willing to take on the challenge with the money provided him by the club

Surely the odd temporary title was more as a result of HR issues. Getting round being done for constructive dismissal of Kennedy ect? May be wrong though.

Iím in your canp MW....... for me there were only ever two roles and Nick saw that and jumped rather than being undermined by having to report to Kidney while he and Kiss made all the calls

Donít seee what this changes K and Kís deals when they came in were long team and nothing has changed other than the label.....

Be interesting to see what the coaching set up looks like next year? Assume Kidney wonít need/want a Technical director (not to mention that we couldnít afford one!) and wonder how many additional coaches they will want?

Shame for me is that the Coventry situation left Nick promoted to quickly and fear me may look back on that and wonder at some point in the future

But there was always a role above NJK of Dr V as Technical Director...

It doesn't look like he will be buying a house in Reading judging by his eagerness to move to London asap

Watch....bet NJK becomes a sort of GM at Quins, leaving Gustard to take care of the playing side.

No inside view, just an opinion !

My sentiments at the time, but what is done is done.

Wouldn't be at all surprised if he ended up in that role. Will be interesting to see how that model ends up working whoever gets the gig. Guess it's similar to the role Glenn took towards the end of his time with us.

Itís been pretty heavily telegraphed in the press a few weeks back

I also would join that camp, just such a shame that we lost Kendo, for all the criticism of him for our results, he did get us promoted and had recent success in the Championship but more importantly, he took the lead when we needed him after Coventry left and I am not sure that loyalty has been shown to him. Also feel that losing Laidlaw for our year back in the Premiership was crucial.

That is a strong point you have made, backed with a sound reasoning.
