Welcome back Deano

Delighted to hear that Dean Richards has been appointed by Newcastle Falcons as DoR from the start of next season.

Many believe that Richards' 3 year ban following the 2009 Bloodgate scandal was too lenient. I, for one, believe that he was treated ridiculously harshly, scandalously scapegoated by the ERC as the ostensible sole culprit of a widespread practice.

Both Newcastle and English rugby will benefit hugely from Deano's rugby nous. Welcome back.

It's great to see him back, he's a rugby man through and through but why not go for the England job...Haha! I've just read that back...

He would do as well as anyone if he had the England job....but he would never get the chance so soon after his a ban has ended. If he turns Newcastle around I wouldn't be surprised to see him given a chance down the line though. Proven winner.
