Ex-Northampton coach Jim Mallinder ready for return with new club

Former Saints boss Jim Mallinder could be set to be appointed as head coach of Cardiff Blues, according to reports in Wales.

Mallinder saw his 10-year stay at Saints come to an end in December as the club sought fresh leadership.

But the long-serving director of rugby may not have to wait much longer for a return to the game with Wales Online reporting that he could take over from Wasps-bound Danny Wilson at the Blues.

If Mallinder does join the Blues, Wales Online reports that he could recruit George North, with the Saints wing set to move back to Wales this summer.

 North’s next destination has yet to be revealed and he may fancy linking up with his old boss at Cardiff Arms Park.
