"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.

'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.
