Interview with Jim Mallinder: your questions please

Nick Heath will be interviewing Northampton Saints coach, Jim Mallinder, and this is your opportunity to put your question to him.

Would you like to know why he chose Dylan Hartley as captain, how often Johnno has been on the phone about the likes of Phil Dowson, Jon Clarke et al, or just what he makes of the Saints’ prospects for the rest of the season.

Northampton is the only English side left in the Heineken Cup, and very much competing for Guinness Premiership honours, so post your question below before 12pm on Wednesday and you’ll not only get your question answered, but you’ll also get a mention in this week’s Podcast.

  1. I’d like to know what he thinks has caused the transformation in Ashton. Not long ago he seemed to struggle in the Prem and considered quitting union altogether. Now he’s a try-scoring machine and an international.

  2. Can you ask why he thinks it took until the last game of the Six Nations for Johnno to pick Foden and Ashton?

    If Johnno picked on form, the Saints could form nearly half of the team – Lawes, Dowson, Geraghty, Clarke, Foden, Ashton.

  3. Please can you ask if he was surprised when Jeff Probyn put his name in the frame for an England coaching role, along with Dorian West?

    Is a job with England something he would be interested in if he was called upon, or is he fully focussed on Northampton for next season?


  4. A question in two parts.

    After the initial flurry of signings and a few exits earlier this year, does the performance of Saints in the Heineken Cup and the guaranteed Heineken Cup rugby next year make it easier to recruit replacements for the higher profile of our leaving players, or is there to be more emphasis on the Academy/Wanderers players due to the wage cap?

    (As an homage to the come on you Saints website) What is your favourite biscuit?

  5. To all of you who posted questions – thanks! They’ve been asked, so tune in to the Rugby Blog Podcast from tomorrow morning to hear Jim’s replies.
