Wane joins Scottish Rugby Union
Started by: wigvet (3322) Report abuse
Departing Wigan Warriors head coach Shaun Wane will join Scottish Rugby as high performance coach later this year.

The 53-year-old will leave the rugby league side at the end of the Super League season.

Wane has won five trophies during six years in charge of Wigan, having previously played for the club as well as Leeds and Great Britain.

"The Scottish way of playing the game is fast, highly skilled and positive," he said.

"That is something I want to contribute to, and help develop further.

"I see this as a fantastic opportunity to not only impart what I have learnt over my career in rugby league as a player and coach, but also to learn myself from union and look to support the excellent work already being done in Scotland."

good luck to the man ,but i do find his appointment surprising.

Posted by: roylew (2782) Report abuse
No league team would want him

it takes one to know one jarvo!
Good luck to Wane!! [at least he's not going to Catalan]

Good luck SW 5 trophies in 6 years is ok by me.

I'm a bit surprised you're surprised baker boy. Shaun Edwards is with Wales Andy Farrell with Ireland and Owen Farrell is the England captain.
Waney is the last piece in the plot for league to take over union

Not miserable but not a good manager of people....got far too close to the players....tactically in a mess at times...always a 6/10 person for me

Well -- our window cleaner gets the sack come Monday

He said Wayne was heading to France

Oh, hang on a minute; I may have got mixed up
...was it someone on Wigan World what said it ?

whats an high performance coach ?

Posted by: roylew (2782) Report abuse
Itís not Shaun wane thatís for sure....

Posted by: broady (13345)   Report abuse
Sadly Scotland donít seem to agree with you. Gregor Townsend has been around a while and he seems to think so. Time to drop your crusade,

Posted by: roylew (2782) Report abuse
Yeh thank god

Posted by: kathpressey (4504)  Report abuse
he obviously got the job on merit so why all the negatives. This attitude from some Wigan fans is enough to put anyone off going for the coach job here.

Will they be singing

'Scotland the Brave' tonight at the JJB ?

Posted by: roylew (2782) Report abuse
Bay city rollers...bye bye baby...thatíll do

Always liked Shaun Wane he comes across as a decent bloke who gives credit where it's due. Good luck lad!

Posted by: roylew (2782) Report abuse
Well he would in the boys club..get real

Posted by: roylew (2782) Report abuse
Uhh

Posted by: cordyline (4464)   Report abuse
Well done Wane

We slogged Leeds tonight

Posted by: broady (13345)   Report abuse
I thought someone said they couldnít kick goals. Nine from ten is pretty good in my books.

Posted by: roylew (2782) Report abuse
Yeh he kicked well tonight...keep it going when the pressure mounts

Posted by: builderboy (1949) Report abuse
The one he missed was one of the easier attempts.

Posted by: peter g (1911)  Report abuse
Next year we'll have to start again with no kicker.

Posted by: broady (13345)   Report abuse
But Charlie Hodgson will still be there. I was always wary of kicking coaches but the first two last night were beauties.

Posted by: PeterP (6436) Report abuse
Maybe Wane's type of coaching will be better for Union.Hope Wigan get a coach who will change their style of play because it has become stale and boring

Posted by: roylew (2782) Report abuse
That josh woods seemed more capable than Williams

Posted by: Jumpin Jack Flash (115) Report abuse
Your right there Roy, i thought he played and organised really well, few more games needed and we will have a quality half back me thinks

Posted by: tonker (19344)   Report abuse
I think Shaun Wane will take to rugby union like a fish to water.
He can relive the thuggery of his youth. He'll be in his element, teaching them union players how to stamp on each other!!

Posted by: baker boy (13908) Report abuse
kath p i was not being negative,but just wondered what scottish ru could do with shaun wane the high performance coach.what the eck is the job.

Posted by: roylew (2782) Report abuse
It sounds like a very intelligent post...how many gceís did he get?

Posted by: tonker (19344)   Report abuse
One of the questions on the application form was - "Are you a people person"?

I heard Shaun left that one blank!

Posted by: norman prior (817)   Report abuse
Good Luck Wayne. I wish you well in your new Roll.

Posted by: Handsomeminer (1330) Report abuse
Tonker are you a full shilling ? Leave it blank
