I seem to recall Deano saying he wasn't interested in the England job, Besides, Jones is here for the RWC so no vacancy.

There is NO way that Dean would take on the England job. He prefers the week in week out buzz of the Premiership and I recall him saying this at one of the fans forums. I know we should never say never but I really can't see it happening!

Stuart Barnes has given off the impression for 20 years of hating the Falcons. I donít know him personally to be able to say if thatís true or not.

He may just be shaking the pot up a little bit.

Barnes had it in for the Falcons from the very beginning. Rob Andrew had been Engkand's first choice fly-half instead of Barnes. When we won the league title at the Stoop, Barnes was commentating and we taunted him by chanting "Are you watching, are you watching, are you watching Fatty Barnes." He came up to a group of us in the bar after the game and laughingly explained that he had been watching.

. The cynic in me suspected that Deano was carrying the can for a lot of people who had been doing naughty things. The cynic in me still thinks that to this day.

As was effectively confirmed by the quiet shelving of the report on "blood" substitutions.... As a Harlequin it still leaves a bad taste in the mouth that Deano and Quins were hung out to dry for that :-( For your sake I hope he stays with you, he's certainly turned Falcons around. I just wish he'd stayed at Quins, our Premiership win under Connor O'Shea was based on Deano's squad.

Yep that was always my thinking about Quins premiership win. Agreed about the blood subs. I know other coaches and DoRs from the Premiership at the time and they said it was just that Deano got caught .... or more that Williams wasn't a clever boy.
