Earlier today All Blacks Assistant Coach Wayne Smith announced he is stepping down from the All Blacks at the end of the Investec Rugby Championship.


How to start a rumour.. but wouldn't it be nice

Has played English underage but hopefully he is IQ.
Seems well rated by the fans.
To be honest I'd prefer to hear of a centre or LH to be honest.

It'd be a bit strange to have 3 back up scrumhalves in and around the same age, especially in a Challenge Cup season. Do you think we'll get a centre? We already have 5, not counting Crosibe who has played a fair bit of 12.

Maybe Keane will see both Ili and Leader as utility backs. Still think we desperately need 2 poworful ball-carriers, including 1 back-line one...

I was counting Ronaldson, Aki, Farrell, Robb, and Griffin as our centres. I had forgotten about Ili tbh, Leader is exclusively back 3 for me. So that's 8 guys that can play centre if you include Dawai, are we likely to sign anyone else? I would like to see us bring someone in, but I do think those guys can improve with better coaching, which I think they'll get with Keane and Carolan

So O'Toole and Brennan are graduating a year early, hope we get to see a bit of them next year.
