If it is jk going, I hope people remember he has served quins for a long time and still deserves respect, even if it has not worked out. No need for anything personal.

Completely agree.

Don't think it'll be JK going though.

Agree, people should remember that he's a good coach, just a poor DOR. He's stepped in when requested, but it's not actually his fault that he's been over promoted.

Honky Tonk - Absolutely - JK built the pack that won the Prem, he deserves respect. He has been a stalwart of the club.

Very true, would be happy to see him remain but not in the DoR role, I never like to see anyone lose their job.

I wonder if it has anything to do with Shaun Edwards being at the Stoop again on Saturday just gone.

Would certainly be a step in the right direction with him coming in as coach, but it needs to be more wide-ranging than that to turn us around IMO.

Complete culture change required, which means lots of people need to go.

JOHN KINGSTON, DIRECTOR OF RUGBY, WILL BE LEAVING THE CLUB AT THE END OF THE 2017/18 SEASON BY MUTUAL AGREEMENT.

John was promoted from Head Coach to Director of Rugby in April 2016, leading the Club to its highest Premiership finish in three years and securing European Champions Cup rugby for the first time in several years.

John Kingston said, “It is with a very heavy heart, that I will be leaving Harlequins at the end of this season.

“I have been at Harlequins for 17 years in differing roles and have grown to love the Club almost as if it were part of my family. I am immensely proud of the significant successes that I have been part of in winning the Aviva Premiership, two European Challenge Cup trophies and the LV= Cup.

“The obstacles this season have been well documented and no one has been more disappointed by our results than me. In my opinion, this is the strongest squad ever assembled in all my time at Harlequins and this leaves the club in a sound position to go forward. Nothing would give me more pleasure than to see the squad achieve in the near future what I deeply believe it can – winning trophies.

“I would like to thank all the players, coaches, management, staff and everyone at Harlequins for their commitment, support and hard work during my time at the Club.”

Harlequins Chief Executive, David Ellis added, ''This season has been hugely frustrating and disappointing for everyone at Harlequins, and for none more so than John. With considerable regret, we have agreed that John should step down as Director of Rugby.

“John has much to be proud of during his time at The Stoop, most notably when, while Head Coach, the team won the Aviva Premiership, the Amlin Challenge Cup and the LV= Cup, as well as reaching two Heineken Cup quarter-finals.

“On behalf of all at Harlequins, I would like to express our genuine gratitude to John for all he has done during his time at the Club.

“The Club will not make any comment about the appointment of a new Director of Rugby until we are ready to do so. The process to recruit someone new who can take Harlequins to the very top of English and European rugby is in hand.”
