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....
