Sunday evening we posted a link to an article on the Irish Independent website on reports suggesting Leo Cullen is to be offered the Leinster head coach job on a permanent basis, here are some of the responses we received.
We will be offering our own opinion later in the week, and should more comments be added to the threads we will tack them on to this post.

If it's true, then that is one of the shortest apprenticeships served to become a head coach. Is Leo a master tactician of the game ! Only time will tell.
Best of luck to Leo the whole of the Leinster Family is behind Leo and his back room staff Bring It On
Like Leo..it just feels very soon for him to be taking on the reins! Wish him all the best
@HarpinOnRugby best of luck to him

Not a good decision if true imo.
Seems like the cheap option don't you think? Not a lot of top coaches out there though who are available
The Munster team management philosophy is coming into Leinster...God help us. Are the IRFU short of money or something? What you reckon Bryan?
@HarpinOnRugby If it has to be an in-house appointment, I would have thought Girvan Dempsey - 2 B&I cups as coach - deserved the job more-— Riocard Ó Tiarnaigh (@riocard911) July 26, 2015
@HarpinOnRugby Then again, if it was Leo behind the MO'C heave, like how Axel axed Penney, then he's shown he has the ruthlessness we need!!— Riocard Ó Tiarnaigh (@riocard911) July 26, 2015
Best of luck to Leo and the crew.
Nuts if true, who knows what candidates will be available post RWC
2-3 year contract?! Bonkers.
Oh dear god no
Why are we doing this, had the last two season of total regression not shown the need for a real coach? The man has just one season as a forwards coach and shown very little in the year to suggest he should have even kept his job as forwards coach.
If Leo is as much of a Leinster man as suggested then he should say no to this job. He's not ready, has not got the experience and is way out of his depth.
If he's as blue as some say then he'd do what's best for the club.
Leo will do a great job. -just wait
God I wish him well but I wouldn't fancy taking the job this year, he will be missing so much squad with World Cup n 6 nations this season !!!
