Lions looking for new coach

Lions looking for new coach

WELLINGTON COACH Andre Bell has been forced to re-apply for his job – despite having another year left on his contract.

The Wellington Rugby Union today announced it will be advertising the head coach’s position for the 2012 season after completing its review of the Lions’ dismal ITM Cup season.

Wellington finished sixth in the Premiership division, narrowly avoiding relegation to the second tier Championship grade.

Bell was appointed Lions coach on a two-season deal in December last year.

“Following the recent review of the campaign, which was conducted by the WRFU board and CEO, the decision has been made to advertise the position. Andre will be welcome to submit an application,” the WRU said in a statement.
