Is Ulster worthy of Mark

Why has Mark done so well with Sarries, was it the Ulster suits at Ravers that held Mark back?Must add i thought he was not up to the Ulster JOB.

I like him, used to pick a kid up in Bengor when he was at Ulster, had a few chats. Good bloke.

That however was then, this is now. I'm sure he is still a top bloke but I hate and I mean absolutely despise the company he keeps, so for now I wish him nothing but failure.

However as you have posed the question, he very clearly already is, amongst many others.
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

FIRFU - FU'CK YOU ONE AND ALL, CAVING IN TO SPONSORS, SACKING THE INNOCENT FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, SHAMEFUL BASTA'RDS. YOU'VE LOST MY SUPPORT & I HOPE MORE ULSTERMEN & WOMEN

The way he was treated on this board and by so called fans during his latter days in charge of Ulster was a disgrace being spat at is no fun for anyone .

Given that treatment I seriously doubt if he would every desire to return to Ulster .

He might consider an Ireland job but Provincial I doubt it . He has free reign at Sarries but there are International considerations which understandable rule Irish Rugby because the super profits are in Internationals and the provinces and Pro 12 are there to serve the International game .

And if you can't buy into that as a coach then the job is not for you .

It was reported in the papers and on this board of memory serves his final months in the job were very trying due to rumour and disgraceful conduct of those who call themselves supporters .

Spat on is news to me but he, and his wife I believe, received some less than savoury treatment from a small minority of fans.

I don't think that would stop him coming back if he felt it was in his professional interests to do so.

It was a difficult time and to be fair to him he stepped in and took on a very difficult and sizeable task. It wasn't his fault he wasn't probably ready for the job at that time and most definitely was not helped by having an equally inexperienced assistant in Clarke.

It was a decision taken by Fat at the time to do it on the cheap and it really came back to bite him in the hole as we lost Wilson, Bowe and N.Best in quick succession. This loss of personnel exacerbated by early retirements of Best, McCullough and McMillan (less so because of injury admittedly) robbed us of a core of both talent and experience.

I'd welcome McCall back with open arms, he runs a fairly tight ship at Sarries by the looks of things and has something that not one single person in our current regime and that's experience elsewhere.

Fixed in the interests of accuracy.

Much as I love Ulster, I'm afraid not. Why would he want to come here? In a world where money is going to buy success like never before, can we hope to compete in Europe year after year? Who knows, maybe he might just fancy a challenge...

I think what was being suggested is why would he leave a "professional" environment to return to "amateur half hour".


Why indeed?
