Think that could be a bigger loss than a lot of The players who are off. Gleeson has done a great job and the players speak highly of him. I’ve often wondered which out of him and Watto is really responsible those excellent shapes we have in attack. Need a really good replacement
At first I was thinking it would be a bit of demotion to go from overall assistant coach to assistant attack coach. But not only will he probably be on a lot more money he will get to experience a top professional set up with a number of specialists working together. Quick look on the website shows a back room staff of not far off 20 at Wasps
Hadn’t realised David Young is director of rugby there. Then they have a forwards coach, a back coach, a defence coach and presumable now an attack coach. Then a performance team of 9 or 10 then the medical and physio team. Plus a decent sized academy coaching team. Bit different from the 2 man band plus another half dozen at Salford
He will learn a lot in a set up like that. I was hoping he would take over when Watson eventually gets poached by a bigger spender. Hope Gleeson learns and then comes back to a job in league

I thought the same when I saw he was leaving Oldham and I see it’s being mooted by love rugby league in one of their round ups. I know the club have commented in the past about how happy they’ve been with dual registration with Oldham as they have an approach that complements ours so hopefully he’ll fit in well if true. He never struck me as the most articulate of men when he was a player but he may have hidden depths and could well have developed that side of his character. I’d have no complaints if he came in. He was a great player for us so hopefully he can be a great coach too
A favourite of mine - was very good in his first stint. Obviously that doesn’t translate into guaranteed success as a coach (as RUTB said - he came across as a bit of a growler when they trained at the same gym as me) but he seems so have done a respectable job at Oldham. I’d be happy with this move.
