I know the Ireland job would mean that he would be away for long periods a few times every year but overall it looks like a great fit. As much as we improved in Leo's first season Lancaster still had to unMoc us a bit so it would be interesting to see what he could with Ireland assuming that Joe leaves us in a good place, plus the young Leinster lads that he'll have helped developed over the previous couple of years should really be able to kick on with him as they enter their prime.

I'm guessing Joe will head back to NZ but from a tugby POV I'd love to see him go for something like the French job, imagine what he could do with their side and the young players they have coming through? Obviously from an Irish rugby fan POV I just hope he goes back to teaching.

From an Irish fan POV I have this dream. Joe is walking on a beach in Auckland, he looks older but happier - like a weight has been lifted. His jacket is slung over his shoulder. He spots the man he's been looking for. Isa Nacewa is crounched on the front of a small beached fishing boat, sanding the deck with his back to Joe. He turns, see's Joe. He smiles, gets to his feet. The camera briefly pans back to Joe his smile widens. The camera begins to zoom out to an aerial view, as the men walk towards each other and embrace on the beach. It fades to black. But we learn in the end credits that they become the 2021 coaching ticket for the Auckland Blues. They win 5 or 6 Super Rugby titles in a row, but never bother taking up AB's positions.

The Shawshank analogy implies that Irish rugby was a prison for Isa and Joe...not sure about that but I suppose Nucifora would make a good warden.

Brendan Fanning was saying he might be off to Bath at the end of the season. Would be a huge shame to lose him.

Fanning thinks it's more probable than possible. Bomber's contract is up at the end of the season is it not? Every club in Europe would love to have him. But is Bath not harder to get to than Dublin from Yorkshire? Unless he plans to move down there.

Sure Leeds to Bath is longer commute than Dublin.
Don’t see the advantage for him in that move either professionally or personally

Agreed. He's not exactly the Bruce Craig type.

IMO retaining Lancaster is of upmost priority.

"Stuart is an integral part of the province here, the team, how we play and the success we've had over the last couple of years. So, if he was to leave it would be a pretty big void to try and fill.

"There hasn't been a huge amount of talk about it. Certainly, from players it is a year away and so much can change within a year. But certainly Stuart is a huge part of the club."

Not sure if I should mention here or in the Podcasts thread, but Lancaster is doing a podcast series with Ger Gilroy on Off The Ball about Leadership, and it is well worth a listen.
He had previously done an interview with Michael Gervais on his podcast 'Finding Mastery' that gave him the idea to do his own.
First episode is about Lancaster, but subsequent episodes are interviews with guests chosen by Lancaster. Can be found on the "Highlights from Off The Ball" pod.

Are you enjoying it? What really bothers me is that Gilroy keeps bloody asking him about the world cup.

I just listened to the first one (which I think is the only one available). I enjoyed it and thought Gilroy did okay. He certainly didn't drill Lancaster on England's RWC '15 disaster.

Yeah he mentioned the RWC '15 (which is important) but didn't think he over did it. I've listened to the second one too, which is an interview with a New Zealander who's an 'expert' in leadership in sports. Stuart brought him in to help out with the English rugby team. He's also worked with multiple soccer and cricket teams.
Third episode is available now too

Leo Cullen says that Stuart Lancaster has told him that he is happy at Leinster. Expects him to be at the club next season.

Here's the article from the 42, quoting Cullen. Nothing surprising in there. Not much else he can say.

Even with my Ireland hat on, I think Lancaster staying at Leinster is the best thing for Irish rugby. Get Tony Brown or Jason Holland or O'Gara to be Ireland attack coach and leave Lancaster to do what he's doing so well at the moment
