Well I suppose one rumour that may pop up is Mallinder. Don't know what everyone would think about that?

Although, apparently rumoured to go Ospreys (rumour from RIL).

DOR - Mallinder

Head Coach - Stuart Lancaster

Defence Coach - Shaun Edwards

Attack Coach - Nick Evans

Forwards Coach - Cockerill

A man can dream....

oooo I wonder if you guys could nab Cockers back at the end of the season?

As well as its going up there certain things are frustrating him.

Surely we could poach Cockers from Edinburgh. Exactly the sort of man to turn things around and instil some much needed edge, and fighting spirit back into our team.

I wouldn't be too disappointed with Mallinder, although not particularly excited. No to Andy Robinson.

I hope the club doesn't take any chances and gets a DOR with a proven track record as a DOR, not someone who coached Newbury or Georgia.

I would take cockerill any day. Although i watched his Edinburgh team limp out of the challenge cup last weekend, looked very familiar to a few Quins matches this season.

The key thing with whoever comes in is that he brings a couple with him. Having someone senior like a Lancaster beneath a good DoR would allow the others to develop. Mallinder/Lancaster certainly ticks that box, but I doubt you'd be able to extract the latter out of Leinster.

That's the sort of thing I'm hoping for.

I think there are pros and cons of someone like Cockers or Mallinder who know the league and the game in this country, but at the same time I'd be all for really freshening things up with something completely different.

I don't think Lancaster would be a bad shout he has done much to rebuild his reputation at Leinster.

Mallinder, no, look where he left Saints?

Cockerill....not our style

Dean Richards???? Needs a bigger platform if all could let bygones be bygones?

Steve Borthwick if he could be coaxed out of the England camp?


Maybe with our new All Black connection there is an emerging Kiwi coach?

This is a very very important decision

If you want to take a punt - there is young Rowland Winter, who took Cambridge back to Nat 1 and then Coventry back to the Championship. But I agree it would be a risk and you might want to let him have a season or two in the Cahampionship first.

Mind you I suspect Saints have an eye on him as their DoR after next.

as long as its NOT[u][/u] another internal appointment and Mr Mapletoft goes along with the Skills, or lack of! coach Mr Osbourne.

Any new DoR is probably going to want to refresh the whole space as happens in most sports and businesses with 'his' or her!, own team. Just hope Quins have the money to not only attract a suitable replacement but also to pay off the recently resigned coaching
team!

My Starters for ten:

1. Dean Ricahards
2. Richard Cockerill
3. Stuart Lancaster
4. Jim Mallender
5. Dean Ryan

Q: When is the renewal deadline?

A: If you are a renewing Member, you have until Wednesday 23rd May to renew and keep your current seat. On Thursday 24th May, you will have an exclusive day to move to any seats vacated by non renewing Members. All remaining seats will be made available on general release from Friday 25th May

I think in other circumstances you'd say they should be given a lesser role and kept within the club to learn from someone else.

But with the general malaise that has set in at the club, I agree with DOK that a clean slate might be the best thing, and if that means being ruthless then so be it. Easter and Evans can come back once they've proved themselves elsewhere.

You noticed out razor sharp attack? How the team can combine beautifully to force the result? How we don't rely on individual brilliance from the likes of Charlie Walker? You notice when we get the ball the huge number of yards we make over the gain line? It's obviously a clever piece of coaching that we throw the ball down the line, don't fix the man and let the man on the end of the line get jumped on.

Let the new man pick his own people. if that's Nick Evans, then good for him. But don't force people on him who may not buy into or be able to implement his vision.

If the coaches were that good, they'd have been able to deliver a top six place whatever direction JK gave them.

Scott Robertson from Crusaders would be fantastic, if a bit of a coup. Granted he's young and inexperienced, but he won Super Rugby at his first attempted (having taken over from Blackadder who had failed to win with for 7 odd seasons at the Crusaders) plus he couldn't make anything at Quins any worse.

Would love Lancaster as Head Coach.

It definitely wouldn't be anyone without high level coaching experience. And preferably someone currently coaching or recently coaching. And preferably someone who wasn't a failure at their last job.

I don't know who is actually available for next season. Edwards is a good shout. Blackadder is a good shout. No thanks to Richards, top DoR but he did huge damage to the club.

Aside from the obvious we do have some big issues here

1 Who is now negotiating contracts? Brown and Care for starters. Why would they stay unless we get the name of the new DoR very soon? Do they risk it ending up as Mapletoft.

2 Signings - what will those who signed for Kingston for next year make of it? And who is now looking for new players....

3 Signings again - on that point why would anyone join until we know who the boss is? And weíre running out of time for deals to be done

4 And signings again - I assume actually we will do no business coz whoever comes in wonít want to be lumbered with someone elseís squad (where have we heard that?)

5 Season ends in 3 weeks, training for next year with a disillusioned and disunited squad starts in two months. Itís not a lot of time....

No JK - all good. Now? Well it had to happen but this could be.....interesting if ring fencing starts.

Not posted here for years due to disillusion with the way the team and club as a whole has been going since COS's final year. This isn't about a slide into mediocrity, that's happened. This is, hopefully, what bottoming out looks like. This time, at least we aren't going to be relegated.

Wonder if with the ABs link, we could persuade Wayne Smith out of retirement? I'd rather that, or an up and comer from within the UK game. Want no part in an English retread; we know what Lancaster, Mallinder and Cockers are, more than one of them was on deck last time and we didn't pull the trigger. At the same time, we don't need a mad scientist like Conor either. That ship has sailed.

We need either a top tier coach who will bring the big names into line, or a bright young thing we can build a team of the future around.There isn't really a name that jumps out in the English game. Maybe we look at the NZ provincial game?

Lancaster is very highly talked off but not as a no 1, so no guarantee he'd do better than JK, also well respected as a coach.

I reckon Williams would be a good long term bet. Hope whoever comes in keeps him. He's getting a chance to gain experience at an appropriate level, unlike Easter and Evans.

No idea who the top 14 coaches are. Poach the scarlets dor? Though he's going to Wales I assume. I don't watch enough club rugby from other leagues to know who's rated.

Throw the cheque book at Baxter. Though maybe he has England in his sights

Kid. Welcome back. NZ though has only so many coaches who can make a difference. Lets hope the NZ tie up can unearth a good one. Perhaps they could also supply a new S&C team, as every NZ side I've ever seen look stronger fitter healthier than anything I've ever seen at Quins.

Prior to JK being appointed, I had expressed Robbie Deans as an option, not sure what he's doing now? Cockerill would be fine by me because he would instill the kind of discipline in Deano's dna. I dont think Cockers has neccessarily failed yet in his coaching career.

After COS, we could have gone "out of the box" but not now. It needs a proven tough experienced guy at the helm, in my view. Ashton is an interesting one, but he doesn't command respect & strictness. Dean Ryan, could he be trusted? Vern Cotter might have been the one. Joe Worsley, currently coaching in France? After last time I wouldnt trust our board to carry out a worldwide search.

Genuine question re Edwards being at the game on Saturday - he was only about three rows behind me so we were asking it at the time, itís even more pertinent now: why was he there? The only Welsh player in our squad was sitting right next to him in the stands. Canít imagine he saw a team worth taking over, unless he thinks weíve bottomed out and he can therefore only look good by comparison to the current regime.

Only logical answer was that heíd been tapped up already to help out, maybe just as a defensive consultant - London Irish already have Les Kiss newly installed so it wouldnít have been anything to do with them I imagine. But I may be wrong here, maybe someone on this board has some greater knowledge?

Whoever comes in needs to be given carte blanche to change what and whoever they want - if they choose to keep Rowntree, Evans etc, thatís fine. But it should be their decision.

For what itís worth, Iíd love Edwards to come. I think heís more than ready to step up and lead and Quins represents a perfect challenge and opportunity for him.

Also suspect he might bring in Alex King to run the backs and possibly Robin McBride for the forwards. Knows Rowntree from Ď09 Lions and Adam Jones from Wales so could see them both staying. But when discussing new DoR, I think we need to discuss the whole ticket, the potential team they would assemble. Edwards, with those people around him, could do well.

Kennedy was also in the crowd at the Sw end on Saturday....just saying.

No mention of Paul Gustard or Alex Sanderson by anyone. Innovative coaches looking for a new challenge maybe? Through the cheque book at them with an old head as DOR....maybe Wayne Smith (or a Gaffney, Solomons type).

While Tom Williams maybe showing promise again this would be an ex player who is too close to current players.

Whoever comes in the costs could be high so donít hold your breath for an experienced set of coaches. We might not be out of the Wood after all.

Notice that JK going timed to ensure the season tickets are sold?
