Sending someone to Coventry is cruel, sending them to the Ospreys is a human rights violation.

Hymenoptera (hope I spelt that correctly)

Glad to hear Wasps are in better shape financially than I thought. Obviously the CVS funds of some 13m will come in handy.

I was always worried about the Retail Bond of 35m (?) and I recall the associated coupon of some 5% being repaid/refinanced.

Sure it bought a ton of "assets" but what is a stadium worth if it does not generate a surplus?

Why the dramas?

Wasps havn't done well for a few seasons. Perhaps Wasps board 'got to hear' of Dai's intention to return to the Land of his Fathers rather sooner than he hd hoped. Hence the strategic move. Voila.

Any news on rumoured new chapat Bath btw?

Fair bit of discussion from the BT pundits and no question that Dai has been effectively sacked and absence of trophies and poor results last 2 years being the trigger

Interesting point that had relegation been an issue then he probably would have stayed a while longer hoping that stability would be better but with that off the cards it was chance to rebuild longer term

People say they don't want rugby to go the way of football but with money and results being so important, such a move as removing a loyal, well regarded but unsuccessful results wise servant will inevitably become the norm. IMO, it is a very regrettable development and not what old traditionalists like me want to see.

I think Dai has looked tired and somewhat lost for the last 18 months or more and a change was needed for both parties.

Ballsout was completely right, right at the start of the thread, and I was completely wrong.

Just very surprised that it was decided to get rid of him at this point in the season!

Yes. Very odd to sack someone by making them 'step back from first-team duties for an unspecified period' though, so can understand why we all got the wrong end of the stick.

I think the following things are true:

1. He's got a long-term contract and straight-up firing him would be very expensive.
2. The lack of relegation threat means they can go now and give whoever's coming in and the support staff the freedom to start putting new systems in place earlier.

Its rumoured to be Howley but he is suspended until the end of June so if that's true all the more odd....

In most situations like this you would assume it was because the incumbent DoR was a negative influence and had 'lost the dressing room' but by all accounts public Dai retains immense respect both personally and professionally

Alternatively the next bus is on its way but as BFJ points out the bookies' favourite Howley is suspended so what was to be gained from this action now

Unless it was Dai's decision along the lines of, if you haven't got the confidence in me for next season then you can't have the confidence in me for the rest of the season?

Gaz, don't mean to be pedantic but you slipped on a quite a few posts now. Its BSJ, he may well be friendly but its not Big Friendly Jack. Just saying 'cos I think BSJ is too polite to point it out.

It reminds me of when we used to be visited by Big Dave from Bristol as a poster always going on about the Mighty Giant of the West who was slumbering and would arise........to be fair they have opened one eye fairly effectively under Pat Lam.

Anyway it transpired;

He was not Big

His name was not Dave

He was not from Bristol!

I always pictured Big Dave constantly refreshing this board every 60 seconds, waiting for anyone to dare utter a word against Bristol, then he (or many of this anonymous aliases) would jump in and defend the club's honour.
