Now I think this has to be a good thing, things went down the pan at Southampton so he should be motivated to get things going.

I'm not so sure.

His experience and expertise is in Rugby, and as he discovered at Southampton different sports demand different approaches. He'll be dealing with some more down to earth people now, instead of arrogant footballers, and they may have more in common with Rugby players.

That said, I do think he did himself no favours by claiming to be the saviour of all after the World Cup. He got out at the right time, and he did the same at Southampton. He'd have been fired there is he hadn't.
