Thought I remembered Johnson involved somewhere

Yeah, think it could well have been that. As you said they just fell short when the pressure was on, losses by less than a score in a couple of HC QF's iirc? Such a shame because I look at what sarries are doing now and it just feels a little of 'what could have been' for the O's?

Millward, was he the tight head from around 2005ish?


Hore took over control in 2008, Johnson was appointed Coach 2009?

They *juiced* all that money on great players and then employed a succession of clowns to coach them. Absolutely mental waste.

^^^^^^^^^

I seem to remember an extreme level of vertical hierarchy ...

Hore EPD Performance director
Johnson Dir of Rugby
Holley(?) Head Coach
Supplementary coaches...was Humphries involved? :scratch:


I also remember that Johnson soon tried to quit but Osps/Hore had him pinned on an image rights contract, Johnson usually refused a formal contract ....
etc ...

Hmmm ? :scratch:

To be fair to the Irish, one of the things they have done well for some time now is bring in good coaches for their provinces. There have been some pretty big names coaching teams over there, whereas a lot of the coaching appointments at the Welsh sides have been very underwhelming.
