    Joe Schmidt leaves after the WC and Andy Farrell takes over

    Joe Schmidt leaves after the WC and Andy Farrell takes over. Farrell i'm sitting on the fence with tbh. Schmidt beyond doubt the best coach Ireland has ever had.
    If a man tried to take his time on earth and prove before he died what one man's life could be worth, I wonder what would happen to this world

    Guess it was coming but disappointed.
    the transformation in our fortunes under him has been huge ,hopefully he leads us to even greater things before he goes.
    NZ is probably his next port of call coaching wise and if he does end up coaching NZ then good luck to him as long as its not against us .
    thanks Joe and best of luck to you and your family from an Ireland and Munster fan

        Really unfortunate that he has decided to go but there can be no hard feelings due to the success he has brought to both Leinster and Ireland. Without a doubt the best coach/manager that Irish rugby has ever had. Hopefully the lessons he has taught us will be continued on into the future.

        If he gets the All Blacks job I fear for the chances of the rest of world rugby overtaking them in the future

          Ireland’s loss is Tiernans gain.

            The Irish Times quotes him as saying “I have decided to finish coaching...”. So possibly not intending to go for All Blacks role but would he refuse it?

            Good luck to him anyway.

              I would like to see him get the All Blacks top job, he deserves it.

                I'd say any role in sports development, team building, speaking etc would snap him up.

                I think something like overseeing the Olympic development of kiwi athlete's would be right up his alley.

                The guy could do almost anything in that field if he wanted

                  I'm a bit surprised by this. I thought Lancaster was a shoo in.

                    Never even been head coach of a club. Massive risk, not go after Scott Robertson or Pat lam?

                        Gonna guess rog will come in as defence/backs coach.

                          I'd say whatever pressure comes with the Irish job, it's many magnitudes worse with the nz head coach role. I can't imagine it would help with the family life.

                            Crossed my mind as well

                              Dunno, with Farrell still there I don't think he would pull away from his defensive duties. Farrell had previously done skills coaching as well, but there's a big hole for a general attack coach. Would love somebody like Wayne Smith or Tony Brown
