Dean Richards: He's not a coach

Really interesting line from Ugo just now in the pre-match stuff on Falcons v Irish.

He was talking about how Dean Richards builds good squads and is doing so in Newcastle.

Ugo was saying what he brings to a rugby side -- and it was about leadership, inspiration, knowing how to put a squad together and motivate players...then he specifically added "he's not a coach"...the meaning was pretty clear, he was an inspirational figure but the ins and outs of the coaching stuff is not what he brings..

Thought it was very interesting to hear from a player in the light of our endless conversations about what the role of the DoR is and how it should be done....

Can we have him back? He made a big mistake BUT the difference between him and JK is massive.

You'll get your head bitten off, but I daresay most would agree if they were honest with themselves, aside from the puritans.

Well Newcastle were my "Dark Horses" for this season. Didn't expect them to be doing quite this well. Deano is building a good squad there, brick by brick!

Thought everyone knew Deano wasn't a coach. The only coaching he'd know, presumably, would be coaching the forwards and we already had JK doing that when Deano was here.

Similarly COS wasn't out there coaching the backs during his time in charge.

JK no longer coaches the forwards, as far as I'm aware, Graham Rowntree does that.

Basically DORs don't coach. Coaches do.

"The man at the top sets the tone."

Not in isolation - That's what Dai Young was on about. Suppose your owner won't stump up the full salary cap figure. Suppose your players demands leave you not enough salary to buy the squad you need. Suppose your CEO tells you he's not got the money to buy out the coaches contracts and you just have to work with what you got?

Deano was coach at Tigers and our previous DOR Cockers also coached, we now have a coach and no DOR
