Redpath’s departure draws speculation

19 April 2012

The resignation of Bryan Redpath as head coach of Gloucester Rugby Club on Tuesday has attracted comment from Gloucester chairman Ryan Walkinshaw.

The role of Director of Rugby at Sale Sharks is currently vacant, and Redpath is the favourite to take up the position. Walkinshaw stated yesterday that if evidence were found that the Sharks were involved in Redpath’s departure they would “fight back with a no holds barred legal attack”. The Sharks have confirmed that they are still interviewing candidates for the role.

This latest development in the world of rugby indicates that rugby is heading the same way as football, with interest in the movements of the management teams rivalling the interest in the performance of the sports teams themselves.
