Oh, Richards wouldn't be allowed to bring his ex-Lester mates such as Wells with him!!
All good speculation. Any other ideas? Hope it's not Meehan.
Looks like Ford is off to Bath according to The Times today. "Mike Ford, the former England defence coach, is expected to make a permanent return to the club game as part of the new management team being put together to revive the fortunes of Bath next season.
The appointment of Ford, whose contract with England was not renewed after the debacle of the World Cup, is anticipated after tomorrowâ€™s final league game against Leicester at Welford Road.
Ford will serve as the defence coach under Gary Gold who is set to be confirmed as the new director of rugby at the Recreation Ground in succession to Sir Ian McGeechan. Both Gold, a South African, and Ford have been working together temporarily at Newcastle Falcons for the past three months in a bid to help the embattled club escape relegation."
In the same article ..it says Redpath has also been interviewed by Munster and Cardiff as well as Sale, and Toby Booth is linked with the post of Director of Rugby at Glos.
