Seems daunting is taking a back seat for a while and stepping down.

Just seen this myself.

"Stepping back from 1st team duties", is this stress or is he moving on?

Quote:

Dai Young is stepping back from first-team duties at Wasps, itís been revealed in a shock announcement.

The club has revealed that attack/backs coach Lee Blackett is taking over as interim head coach.

Itís being reported by Coventry Live that a senior management meeting was called at the Ricoh Arena this morning, followed by the players being told the news shortly afterwards at the clubís Broadstreet RFC training ground base.

Young was not present at yesterdayís media session, with defence coach Ian Costello attending instead.

A statement from Wasps reads: ďDirector of Rugby Dai Young will be stepping back from first-team duties for an interim period.

Unfortunately Iím not as adept at including links etc just yet so that was a milestone for me.

Seems strange that hmt says he is taking a step back, I feel that it may prove to be Something a bit more permanent. It could of course be linked to the fact that saracens are now definitely relegated, given wasps position in the league, what do you think.

Also, just been looking for some elastic bungee cord for Saturday to keep my bobble hat on, the wife said she would staple it to my head, an offer which I kindly refused.

Toby booth going to ospreys according to fissler.

What do you think about having him here with a younger exciting head coach under him? Solly canít have long left.

Depends how long Solly stays and how Jonathan Thomas performs but while I wouldnít rule him out.i hope JT progresses sufficiently well for him to take over.
