Coach Foley fronts Waratahs board
Under-pressure coach Michael Foley has fronted the NSW board to review the Waratahs’ dismal Super Rugby season.
The Waratahs have won just four matches this year and, with six straight losses, they’re already resigned to one of their worst campaigns.
NSW have two matches still to play, but Foley made a presentation to the board on Tuesday, as the first-year coach fights to save his job.
The Waratahs have the bye this week before finishing the season off against Australian Conference rivals and finals contenders, the Brumbies and Queensland Reds.
In a statement released by the club on Tuesday, the Waratahs board said it will take time to consider the content of the review, with uncertainty still remaining over coaching and management positions beyond 2012.
“Michael Foley put forward a detailed analysis of the 2012 season to date. The board thanks him for his review and will now consider all his information and proposals,” said Waratahs Rugby chairman Edwin Zemancheff.
“In the meantime, the focus of the entire organisation is on the final two matches of the year against the Brumbies and Reds and in giving Waratahs’ fans something to cheer about for the remainder of the season.”
The Waratahs also announced the additions of Michael Miller and Roger Davis on the board.© AAP 2013
