    Wolfhounds coaching team announced

    Elwood and Foley to helm Wolfhounds coaching team
    Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 02:04 PM

    Eric Elwood and Anthony Foley will take the reins of the Ireland Wolfhounds for the forthcoming games against Scotland A and England Saxons early next year, it was announced today.

    Connacht coach Elwood was capped 35 times and scored 296 points in international rugby for Ireland and has been announced as the head coach to the Wolfhounds. He will link up with current Munster defence coach and former international No.8 Foley, who won 62 caps for his country and will take responsibility for the forwards on the Wolfhounds team.

    The remaining senior member of the Wolfhounds management team is manager Joey Miles who was worked with the Wolfhounds side for the last five years as well as with the Ireland senior team on the tours to Japan in 2005 and New Zealand/Australia in 2008.

    The Wolfhounds coaching team will work closely with the Ireland national management in terms of preparing the Wolfhounds for their upcoming games.

    “I am delighted to take up this role and to be getting the opportunity to work with such a wide group of players at international level again," Elwood said.

    "I know from my time with the Ireland U20 team that there is nothing more satisfying then bringing players together and to help prepare them to represent their country."

            Nice to see the 2 guys being given the opportunity, hopefully they'll do well with the A's & maybe well enough that deccie will let them bring a squad to the churchill cup next summer.

                  Is that 'Great, Stuff Axel' or 'Great Stuff, Axel'??
                  "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

                  Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"
