Why is it felt necessary to have ex players ( one or more) on the board. Their playing experience is out of date, their view of coaching and players development likely to be based on their own experience which is not current. The risk is of constant "back seat driver" behaviors - not all ex players are old farts but many ex players in many sports get locked in a time warp. What the board need to be able to do is facilitate ( meaning fund) the club; they need to make good appointments in key roles - rugby side and commercial side too; they need to be involved in profile raising and finding sponsors. They are not needed at training, in the changing rooms or opining on their favourite back moves from the old days. Even if having ex players on the board were a good idea ( and Tigers have not find it wholly useful) Pat Sanderson is not likely to be one of them as he was seen as very divisive by many and toxic by some whatever his merits as a player. His brother is developing in to an excellent and articulate coach.
