I reckon Faz be more than happy to see his ol' mucker Lancaster making sure Leinster and its academy keep producing "ready to go" internationals for him to pick from.

I know your post is two years old but it's always a relevant point.
Leinster took a different tack.
They appointed an attack (backs) coach and adopted the "attack is the best forn of defense" approach.
Allied to this, they also adopted the "if they don't have the ball we don't need to defend" approach.
So far so good.

They doubled down on different. They hired a contact skills coach.

It's fantastic news. Releasing it mid-Six Nations has meant that it hasn't been the main story in Irish rugby, but it's the main story in Leinster rugby for the next two years. We've all seen the difference a top quality coaching team makes, and this is a top quality unit.

It is great. Leinster's coaching structures are best when they are unconventional and this is a winning formula.

Provinces need developer coaches who understand and buy into the needs of the international game/provincial calendar. Leo does, Stu fought long enough for the RFU against the clubs that he gets it better than almost anyone.

Just upping this thread, as it seems the most appropriate place for the fantastic renewals of the coaching ticket.
https://www.leinsterrugby.ie/leo-cullen ... contracts/

Two years for Lancaster, McBride and Felipe. Delighted to keep Lancaster in particular. The best coach in Irish rugby. Was worried he might not fancy more after the hassle of travel in the past year.

Just the one more year for Cullen, who opted for one year only, for personal reasons. Plenty to speculate about that. I wonder is he lining something else up?

Interview with Mick Dawson here https://twitter.com/leinsterrugby/statu ... 3567660047

"We offered Leo a two-year deal and were very happy to do so, but Leo, for his own personal reasons, has instead chosen a rolling one-year contract which we respect.

It is very much our hope that Leo will sit down with us again next season and that he will indicate a willingness to commit for a second season, and we will discuss that possibility when the time is right."

Well, he has outside business interests. But maybe he is looking at other things in rugby: I don't know.

Nope it's a personal/family related reason as he stated.

Maybe he thinks there could be more money on the table for Year 2 in a year's time

“As Mick has stated, I was offered a two-year extension but requested a one-year rolling extension instead. This is purely down to personal circumstances and I would like to thank the IRFU and Leinster Rugby for their understanding in that regard. In saying that, I would like to reaffirm my absolute commitment to Leinster. I think anyone who knows me will know that my loyalty lies here."

I think Leo has earned a bit more credit than that.

Or maybe he is looking at Nucifora's role. That contract is up in....2022.
