Dai to Gloucester?

Article is about reports that Johan Ackerman will leave Glaws for Japan but it does goes on to says:

“Two unemployed Welshmen could be among the people to replace the former Springbok, with Dai Young and Rob Howley among the options.”

Is this a case of pure speculation or could there be some merit to this? Personally I can’t see this happening.

Why can’t you see it happening ? Although searching around it seems this originates from the Mail and it also speculates that cockers or Lancaster could take the job.

I suppose I imagined he’d end up somewhere in Wales or pick up an international role. Probably just being sentimental more than anything else. The sight of 3 former Wasps stalwarts (Dai, Cips & Simpson) with the Cherry & Whites next season would be a hard one to swallow!

Nigel Melville saw merit in the job..
And he'd actually won things with us...

Agree. £5 and Dai incompatible.

Would be a backward step for Glos.

Well many thought that was the case at Wasps!

According to our postman Glaws have become disillusioned with fiver and gone off him big time.

Big rumours of that as the season progressed. Kind of like Wasps.

Strong rumours of a big bust up at Glouc, centered on Cips, just before the wasps game. Hope its not true, but heard it from a couple of sources.

Johan Ackerman lost his war with the players so he has left.

Can't see Dai Young there TBH, why would they?

Vaguely remember some comment around it that he got injured late on in the warm up but too late to be replaced in the squad

Squad unrest does seem to follow Cips around.

Cockerill may be the favourite.

I dont buy the Cips angle as above as he would be the one to leave in a straight conflict between him and a head coach, unless the squad backed him.
I think Glaws generally performed pretty poorly so i think the players stopped playing for JA for some reason.

If the players had turned on Cips, he'd be out.

I think JA cut his losses with a big money offer.
They havent recruited much, apart from May, iirc, so this has been brewing for a while..??

Cips has been below par as have other big players of last season so i do think this is a coaching issue on the pitch.
