WIth news that Michael Bradley is to step down at the end of the season and defence coach Billy McGinty has resigned with immediate effect, Moody Blue takes a look at the contrasting fortunes of our pro-teams.
The new coach of Edinburgh Rugby is going to be:
a) Michael Ball
b) Michael Flatley
c) Michael Bradley
d) Bradley Wiggins
I have to admit, the name didn’t ring much of a bell with me either. (The answer is rumoured to be c) by the way). Michael Bradley, former coach of Connacht. Not the Connacht of this season, who have done pretty well under Blessed Eric. No, the Connacht from before. So there you have your answer to the other great question of our time – are the pro-sides turning into second class citizens under the current SRU regime?
