Richards poised for Falcons role
Dean Richards, the former England forward and Harelquins coach, is reported to be on the verge of being appointed Newcastle Falcons director of rugby.
Richards is currently serving a three-year ban following his involvement in the Bloodgate scandal when he was in charge of Harlequins.
His suspension ends in mid-August, when he is expected to take over from current Newcastle coach Gary Gold. Confirmation is expected from Kingston Park by the end of the week.
