      Shame on me for believing the Independent. I will fold away the bunting.

                  Its a very odd extension length as in if he doesn't renew his contract then, it only gives his successor 2 years to prepare for the world cup in Japan and there more than likely won't be too many coaches looking for a gig at that time.

                    Lions tour and Steve Hansen finishes up both in 2017. I would wager he will be touting for the kiwi job

                      Apart from the Grand slam he has failed to win or, more pertinently, the RWC group he has failed to win. Hopefully he will rectify both those omissions before this contract extension is up.

                        Schmidders: Played 20, won 16. 80% win ratio thus far in the ireland job.
                        Kidders: Played 51, won 27. 53% win ratio as Irish coach.
                        Eddie: Played 78, won 50. 64% win ratio.

                        Kidney’s Ireland teams have won at just a 53% rate with an average points difference of +3.4 per game. That is to say, in the less-successful second half of Eddie O’Sullivan’s Ireland coaching career he still achieved a better winning percentage and points difference than Kidney has managed in his four years in the job. O’Sullivan’s teams consistently scored 25% more points than Kidney’s.

                          I thought, for a moment that that read 'if he ever finds out'.
                          Naomh Joe's Lions will squeeze them kiwis to defeat in the land of the long white cloud leaving the NZRU no option but to bring Joe on board the good ship silver fern for Hansen but to hand over the reins.
                          Gwan Joe!!

                            I'm sure Kissy will be fine given he's been involved in the coaching set-up for years and will have two seasons with Ulster under his belt.

                              What was DK's win percentage after 20 games? How many grand slams had DK won in his first 20 games?
