Really? Worst 2 seasons since relegation. How long was GR with Quins?

Our scrum has been one of the very few OK points the last couple of years. I assume Rowntree had something to do with that.

Unfortunately there's also the lineout.

Memory tells me it popped up during a game (at scrum time). Ranking on Prem Scrums, Quins 11th

"Personal reasons" could be anything from family circumstances, to him and Gustard not getting on, to just polite wording for sacked. Not sure we'll ever get any detail.
Shame with how it's turned out though as, putting RWC 2015 to one side, his international record is actually good.

It would be very very unusual to say personal reasons if it was simply him not being wanted by Gustard.

No it wouldn't! This sort of thing happens all the time. Coach isn't required but is given the opportunity to appear as though he left of his own accord rather than being pushed out the door. Not much unusual about it. Allows him to escape any potential public embarrassment and also easier to get back into another job.

I like Wiggy but unfortunately he didn't do much for our pack in two years.

Really don't agree. Personal reasons make it sound like someone in his family is ill, or he's getting a divorce or he hates Gustard.

Mutual consent is far less loaded and raises far fewer questions.

I think there may be some very short memories here. Before Rowntree we were a penalty waiting to happen at every scrum, but we were much better last season even without Joe / Kyle when they were away with Quingland. Shame he has gone but wish him well and thanks for all his work.

The only thing I'd agree with on both of those is that our lineout has been atrocious. The scrum has been rteally poor last couple of seasons and was better when JK was coaching

'Mutual consent' would suggest he would have been sacked unless he agreed to go. 'Personal reasons' could literally be anything. Couldn't disagree with you more, but hey ho!

Would like to see Easter out next.

I imagine he was specifically sacked and agreed to go.

Now I imagine hes been interfering with Charley.

The filter is quite funny - it doens't pick up swearwords within a word, so put 2 next to each other and they get through.

Possibly old news. Rumoured he may be off to Wasps as a replacement for Wilson.
