England face losing their defence coach just a year before the World Cup because he is a leading contender to become head coach of Harlequins.

Paul Gustard is in contention for the new position along with Ben Ryan, the former England and Fiji sevens coach, and Shaun Edwards, the Wales defence coach since 2008.

The Times understands that David Ellis, the chief executive, and the Harlequins recruitment panel held final interviews for the position yesterday. If Gustard were to leave the RFU it would cause significant upheaval to the England coaching set-up.

That wouldnt upset me at all.

Only says one of 3 in contention. Edwards and Ryan the others.

Could it be 2 of the 3 could join as DOR/coach or is it just one as coach and DOR will be someone not mentioned?

Pretty happy with Edwards or Gustard. Ryan would be ok as long as head coach with a more experienced DOR above him IMHO.

I’d actually look at it the other way round. Ryan has proved he can manage squads and when interviewed I’ve had the impression that he’s pretty focused on the management side of things, creating the right culture etc. I’d be happy with him as DOR provided there’s a proven experienced 15s head coach in there as well (a Gustard or Edwards)

Gustard would be an amazing coach for you guys, it will be ironic though based on how many people hate sarries that a sarries coach becomes the Quins coach but he will be awesome as Head coach, just like Edwards and I really think they should be the top 2, your defense and the attitude of the players will have to improve as neither man will tolerate the nonsense that has been allowed to go on at Quins for years now

Surely with Gustard & Edwards both being defence coaches, it would one of the two? Why would we employ two defence coaches? Would this mean that Ryan would compliment either of these two in a different more skills/attack role?

Edwards has been a Head Coach before at Wasps, they just both happen to be defense coaches at the moment. You can still get an attack/skills coach with one of those guys as DOR and the other as Head coach

Good names. I would prefer Edwards as Gustard knows some of our England players already so is familiar and we know that has been part of the problem. Bring someone in who won’t be bothered for reputation, it is what the club needs.

Aren’t Gustard and Mapletoft former teammates from London Irish? Could see Mapletoft staying as a job for boys if Gustard got in.

Don’t think nepotism will be a factor there’s been enough time between Gustard and MM. I really don’t know what Osbourn does in fact what does a skills coach do? Surely players at this level have the skills and they are practised during all facets of training.

If I was the club I'd leave decision on the coaches to the new DOR - while letting him know they'd support any decision made.

The club is going to have to pay for Easter (for example) whether they keep him to the end of his contract or not. So if Gustard can use an "Assistant defence coach", then let's use him. If he's just going to get in the way, let's lose him.

Ditto all the rest. If we're going to have to pay £2.5m regardless of keeping them or firing them, let's try and get some use out of them. If they decide to resign, that's another story.

I thought that was precisely what David Ellis said I seem to remember. Admittedly later on in the evening he did confuse the issue a bit by waffling on a bit about the importance of continuity and people with the Quins ethos (whatever that is these days).

I find it difficult to believe either Edwards or Gustard will leave year before world cup. I hope that doesn't mean they will be appointed but not join until after world cup or have dual roll until then. It must also be hard for MM to see his job (head coach) being openly recruited for, in any other company that would be constructive dismissal! Unless of course he's not an employee!

Good point DOK. It would make financial sense and would also help them develop as coaches. Although I think the £2.5m was never confirmed!

As has been pointed out ad nauseam these things will have been decided by a group of people, of which he is one. He may even be against the idea, but have been outvoted. But fine, slate the guy as much as you like.

I think it's hard to know how good our coaches are seeing as the players apparently weren't happy and were so lacking in discipline. There have been a few very good defensive displays, but obviously nowhere near enough. Were they when the players went off script or managed to do what they'd been coached to do?

Same with attack - there were some really good attacking performances in the first half of the season before it all went to pot.

I find it quite difficult to believe one would be good and need demoting/sacking and the other not. If we were to analyse each aspect of our game then all was rubbish. Line out/Maul probably the worst, defence, kicking, attack(worst statistics for a long time). I also find it hard to believe that anyone but the top people are responsible. If the DOR/head coach is asking for a certain style and coaches/players have to assist(may not agree) then they are doing their jobs. And we have heard the players didn't agree with the 'style' and that can only come from the top guys.

I think Evans and Easter have been thrown into the deep end but under poor management which doesn't mean they are necessarily poor coaches. Shaun Edwards who I think would be a great appointment didn't get going until Gatland joined Wasps, previously he was under Melville who came across a bit of a wet blanket from memory. Even SE needed a good man above him.

The one I am dubious about is Rowntree. Our pack has only got worse and he was part of the pussycat England pack during the last world cup. I know he is a Lions coach but only did the scrums(and we remember what happened to Vickery in '09)

The rest have been around too long.

Love how it's always a 'light-hearted' comment when you say it but when I make the same light-hearted comment I'm 'paranoid'.

Anyway...away from that ridiculous hypocrisy and the fact that those who moan about me and QK debating take up more board space than the original posts themselves...

The point is that I'm sure there will be lots of people who supported JK who can't wait to jump on the new guy because it fits their agenda, and I'm sure there are lots of people who can't wait to jump on the new guy because it fits their anti-Ellis agenda etc etc.

I just hope that most people can actually wait and see how things go and not decide their position before whoever it is has had time to put some changes in place.

Too many people picked their side on JK from day 1 and then stubbornly stuck to it regardless of what was happening on the pitch.

I suspect the partnership with NZ puts some pressure on keeping Evans. It's also a tough job for an attack coach if the forwards are poor and the only fit 10 is a schoolboy, to say nothing about not having enough good attacking ball because we keep getting turned over at ruck, maul, scrum and lineout, as well as giving away heaps of penalties...

It's a mystery - we went from having a really good scrum to a very poor one. As for changing all of the coaches, that's a quandary; a new broom sweeps clean and a new DoR may well have a team in mind - but will they be available, and if so, in time? But keeping one or more existing coaches is a gamble due to their track record. Tofty could argue that he was a part of the successful period, but he wasn't head coach then. Also, what if the one coach was ineffective because one of the other coaches' input was affecting the overall play of the team.

I think that Tom Williams and Osborne should be left alone. I think that generally, they are more involved in the academies, etc. I personally think that these areas are quite successful - so should be left alone.
E.g. Marcus Smith was part of a team that actually won us some silverware last year.
Long term, I would like to see Williams moving up through the coaching levels. He has already been involved in England's U20 set up.

Would it be possible for Gustard to Head Coach Quins and still be involved in England set up ? Especially if someone like Ryan took management, contracts, media off him?

If we lost our DOR for the Anglo Welsh Cup and a handful of premiership games its not the end of the world

That may be ok for an interim position Arlequin if it was only a few months till the World Cup but not sustainable if your looking to build a squad and game plan.

Plus all the whinging about it on here when we have a rough patch!!!

Reviewing Shaun Edwards’ record at Wasps particularly as Head Coach, he undoubtedly should be our number one target. If there is really a chance of getting him, our Board must grab it quickly.

I think that Tom Williams and Osborne should be left alone. I think that generally, they are more involved in the academies, etc. I personally think that these areas are quite successful - so should be left alone.
E.g. Marcus Smith was part of a team that actually won us some silverware last year.
Long term, I would like to see Williams moving up through the coaching levels. He has already been involved in England's U20 set up.

Completely agree about Tom Williams.

Interesting that Tom W is serving his apprenticeship with the academy where Mint & Snapper were straight into the first team coaching.

Of the other guys just can’t understand why the forwards have been so poor and this not being addressed by JK who was a highly regarded forward specialist. If Graham Roundtree wasn’t delivering why has he been allowed to stay and even given an extension contract.

sounds like we are quite far along, anyone have any inkling as to when we are likely to announce?
