BBC now saying "Wasps director of rugby Dai Young is to step back from first-team duties for an unspecified period, say the Coventry-based Premiership club."
So it's temporary leave of absence then.

Hope everything is okay for Dai and Dai's.

Dai Young is real gentleman amongst the Prem coaches and a credit to the game. A man who helped pay some players' wages when things were going wrong for Wasps as well as not complaining about his lot even though he has lost a number of very good players. He just got on with the job. Sincerely hope he and his family are OK, assuming this absence appears temporary, and he is able to return to the club he has certainly done his best for over a number of years.

Echo that BOB, it just may be an opportune time for him to take a break, the Premiership season is pretty much dead this year but hope it is nothing serious.

I'm surprised to hear people saying it sounds like a personal issue with him or his family.

To me it seems pretty obvious that after a couple of terrible seasons the club have decided to act and this is a way of smoothing out the transition.

Shame though, he's a good guy.

BO you take the biscuit!

Its a leave of absence!

If they wanted to effect a change why would they not do it at the end of the season when they had a replacement lined up.

This season of all seasons where it does not really matter if you are anywhere from 11 to 7, obviously 5th or 6th would be better and 4th or 3rd better still and of course 2nd or 1st the real goal.

Nothing that I can see in the BBC report that says "leave of absence" and the general tone is much more towards BO's take especially when you put the link with Howley into the mix

You miss the point, as usual.

It's not a leave of absence. He's been shown the door. And they're doing it now because relegation isn't a concern and it gives them plenty of time to gauge interest and find a replacement.

This is literally the only place online where people think it's a temporary thing done for personal reasons. Really weird.

You may be right but if he has been shown the door why don't they say so.

If I haven't read on Twitter that it was a likely firing, I'd have assumed there was a personal/family issue. It's been phrased in an extremely odd way.

Maybe he's been offered HC job at Bath.

I like to believe what people and employers say Hasta. I don't do twitter and I understand from what you wrote that peeps are saying/suggesting he has been fired? If so, its a great shame and very poor judgement IMV by Wasps after all that he has done for the club in recent times. I wonder what input came from Mr Dalliego, a director a pundit?

Uncontestably a good man. Unfortunately results in the last season and a half have taken a serious nosedive. Having been there since 2011 it might be time for everyone to try something new.

I'm not surprised. The Wasps board gave been debating his departure date for at least 2 seasons now. Lovely guy but the Lima Sopoaga experiment has failed utterly and that seems to have been the last straw. As he's both DOR and HC, maybe they'll bring in an HC and shunt him further upstairs.



... IMHO, of course.

Let that be a lesson to all those who think that shipping a 10 from the southern hemisphere is the answer to all the Bath woes.

[www.espn.co.uk]

The All Black's arrival raises questions over the future of current Wasps No. 10 Danny Cipriani, whose own deal expires this summer, but Young suggested the chance to sign Sopoaga was too good to pass up.

"When a world-class fly-half became available we jumped at the chance, as that doesn't happen very often," he said in a statement.

"Lima's track record with the All Blacks, Highlanders and Southland speaks for itself, and we believe he will be an extremely good fit both in our side and within the club.

Given Howley is banned until the end of June it seems very odd to get rid of Dai Young now as Howley is unable to start.

Particularly odd after a stunning fight back last time out against Worcester.

If it is true it also seems a poor way of treating someone who has done so much for Wasps.

Ballsout at the risk of being even more wrong, as usual, how about Wasps are so financially stressed that they are trying to save every penny and Dai Young has said he will step back on nil pay?

Actually fella your literally the only person who thinks he's been showed the door, or should i say 'knows' he has been shown the door from your little cupboard and keyboard.

The club arent as $$ stressed as the media and some fans like to think. They have just purchased a new training base and will start renovations this year whilst continuing to pay near to the cap.
