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.
