Suggitt forced to re-apply for his job

The Current Canadian Coach Ric Suggitt’s contract expires at the end of the month and Rugby Canada has taken a leaf out of The All Black’s book of “How to appoint a coach” and opted ask for applications for the job while inviting Suggitt to reapply if he wants to stay on.

A five man panel has been named by Rugby Canada that will decide who will coach the Canadian men’s team.

The panel, announced Tuesday, is made up of CEO Graham Brown, high performance director Geraint John, board member Dave Robertson, former coach Pat Parfrey and former Canadian international Mike James.

Applications close on Friday and Rugby Canada hope to be settled on their candidate by March 1 and to have the coach in place by June 1 in time for the Churchill Cup tournament.

“We have been overwhelmed by the response to this posting,” John said in a statement to the Canadian Press. “There is a lot of interest from across the country and around the world from people who believe in the Canadian team and what they can achieve.”

Canada are currently ranked 14th in the world.
