Some sort of betting problem. Hope it's not true. If so, he's been a silly boy. Stephen Jones to replace him. One Wasp out, another in, keeping the all Wasps coaching staff.

Yes a great shame if true. Was potentially lined up to go to Italy after the World Cup too. That wonít happen if heís guilty.,
Go Stephen. But not against England!

if the rules are clear and he has still broken them, then this is inexplicable...

Incredibly disappointing.

How can you preach to the players about keeping their discipline and eradicating unnecessary errors and stupid penalties in the heat of the moment in the biggest competition in the world, when you can't maintain your own discipline from the comfort of your own sitting room?

Untenable.

Innocent until proven guilty, surely?

Absolutely but it does not look good.
Hoping for details to emerge before the scuttlebutt kicks in.....

Letís wait to see an official statement.

I still think heís shown an extraordinary amount of ill discipline to get himself into this position, at a time when he demands 100% discipline and commitment from every one of his players.

Doesnít necessarily have to be him for him to be in the poop .... lots of scenarios could play out ... the betting regulations are so tight it extends to people connected with him.
