Former England head coach Stuart Lancaster has been linked with the vacant Super Rugby head coach job at the Queensland Reds following the sacking of Richard Graham earlier in the season.
The 46-year-old spent time with a number of Super Rugby teams earlier this season and has said that he wants to coach at Super Rugby level.
Under Lancaster England won 28 of 46 Tests including victories over New Zealand’s All Blacks and Australia’s Wallabies (twice). They nevertheless failed to perform during the Rugby World Cup, becoming the first hosts ever to go out at the Pool stage
Lancaster though was always known for his value of a team culture and his organisational skills both of which are elements which the Queensland Rugby Union regard highly.
O’Connor and Stiles are both contracted for two more seasons and a possible scenario would be Lancaster as head coach working above the current duo.
