It’s not really a secret. The MHR is looking for a forwards coach to complete the staff of Philippe Saint-André. Joan Caudullo, the director of the training center, has taken the lead since November following the departure of Olivier Azam. But this is only an interim until the end of the season. President Mohed Altrad and manager Philippe Saint-André are currently studying several avenues. One of them leads to Richard Cockerill.
The English technician (52 years old), passed by Leicester, Toulon and Edinburgh, joined the staff of the fifteen of the Rose in 2021. Despite the departure of Eddie Jones, the former international hooker retained his functions, to take care of scrum, under new coach Steve Borthwick, appointed on December 19. His profile pleases the MHR, which has not yet decided.
