Yeah World Cup year is not the best time for them to join, but they will have extra time to work with the core squad due to the delayed start.
I think it might be good timing to change coaching setup, precisely due to the longer pre-season for the bulk of the squad. These guys need to bond and build relationships and understanding.

Disappointed if true. After the season we've endured we need fresh faces - not more of the same.

Dont be silly, the club never discloses contract lengths. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Delaney's recruitment is interesting as he only went to Dunedin for the Highlanders job in late 2017 when Scott McLoed (the 'Landers pervious defence coach) got the All Blacks defence job … not a bad reference.
He led the Canterbury Mitre 10 side as head coach to win the comp in 2017. I assume this is where Brad met him coaching the feeder side to the Crusaders. 
As someone who has seen his sides play (not on tv),  the Highlanders pack is always one of the best in NZ and Super rugby ..an area we need more coaching expertise in … looks a great pick to me 
I was there ...one Tuesday when the All Blacks came (and lost)

Let's be honest here, for a region with our budget to recruit 3 coaches in one go and with such backrounds and credentials is phenominal. It wasnt so long ago that if a coach retired or left we'd appoint ex players from within, whether they were good enough or not.

The early announcement might have had an effect on this year's performance, who knows? It could have just been the lack of depth to cope with a larger than average amont of injuries and the disruption that caused to starting line ups. But the forward planning in replacing virtually the whole coaching team for next season has been second to none. Well done to all involved.Clap

One possible advantage is that Glenn Delaney and Richard Whiffin were at London Irish together,the former as Head of Rugby Operations and the latter as Backs coach as part of Tom Coventry's coaching team.

AND importantly it would seem these are all people well known to Brad so he gets to pick his key coaching group Ioan has been good enough for Wayne in the last 5 years and is experienced now and still learning. Looks good to me πŸ‘

I think these 2 coaches are good business. They both seam up and coming coaches who have a lot of praise from very knowledgeable rugby people and i bet they didnt break the bank either. I for one am pretty excited for next season

Interestingly Delaney has also been a successful forwards coach in the past.

People want to be entertained and see points scored in running rugby and if we continue to play rugby in that style and win I will be happy. πŸ‘

I hope you are right, all those suoer rugby teams concede 30 points per game so I'm not sure I'd be shopping for a defence coach from a super rugby team. I'd be looking at a Shaun Edwards rugby league type.


But I'm no expert.
