Gold Gone!

So Gary Gold has gone. No reason has been given but it can't be good for Bath. I just hope it doesn't have a negative impact. Does anyone know anything?

Sounds like he hasn't done much this season. Ford had basically taken over most day to day duties.

He wasn't supposed to be as involved as he was in the day to day running but he was still always there on match days alongside Ford and tended to be the one the media spoke to. And from what I gather, team selection was a joint decision between the two of them. I'm just hoping that stuff was lies to make it seem like Gold did have a role and that we are actually fine without him.

Gold had been reduced to watching the matches and speaking to the media, Ford did the rest with Booth (apart from backs coaching which no one does)

I used to think it odd Bath didn't have a backs coach, but I hadn't then realised they wouldn't need one.

Seems they want one now. A report on the BBC says Steve McNamara is considering the role of attack and skills coach. Now that would be nice to see.

Why? I can understand using rugby league defence systems. But surely RL attack ideas are going to be rather out of place without large adaptation?

There's a theory Ford has that as a defence orientated coach he's better placed to see weakness in other teams' defensive structures, and this in turn makes him a better attack coach than an attack coach. For all I know he's right, but it is odd that his team have gone an entire game without passing to Eastmond and Joseph no matter the weather, perhaps I misunderstand attack. Back on topic he may thusly be happy to bring in someone with the skills of a rugby league background to work on such areas he himself identifies.

As someone who of long-standing has praised without fault the affect of league coaching on union I frankly couldn't be happier.

Just one other, if this doesn't work out for Ford would anyone else ever hire him? Everywhere he's gone he's put a knife in the back of his boss, save perhaps Johnson.
