Stevenson is (sometimes) still in Austria as a Club-Coach or Coaching Supervisor. Smutna is a German with Austrian roots. You find a lot "Smutnas" in Eastern Austria. He went back to Germany & is working for the DRV [?]

Smutna is an Austrian who lives in Germany. He's actually now the one in charge of the coach training for all of Germany. He did a pretty good job to get the rugby licences officially recognized by the state of Bavaria for the first time, before/ while he was also in charge for Austria.

Lofty Stevenson has been a travelling coach for some years. Apparently he is kind of the head coach of Munich RFC, but was so even while he was austrian national coach.

What actually happened to them? Why aren't they still in charge?
How to grow rugby worldwide?
Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

So both Smutna and Stevenson has been sacked by the Union? For what reasons?

Smutna was not sacked. In early 2016 much changed in our Federation and Smutna looked around for new jobs. The Board has re-announced all Jobs & he didn´t reapply at all.

Stevenson had a different approach to his function as the Federation. The Fed wanted a NT-coach, Stevenson understood his function also as a developer of Austrian Rugby. This caused differences between Board, some Clubs & the NT-Coach. I can´t judge his work as NT-coach, but he was a great developer. No Coach before knew more players, Coaches & Officials in Austria than him. Some changed their education in this age.

I assume from your photo that you're a Tigers player/coach/something to do with the club, so congratulations! Does this mean you're promoted?

Yes I´m Tigers-Official, thx for the congratulations! We do not promote automatically. It depends on many different factors, like

- Format of next Premiership (How many teams? Round robin or Conferences)...
- The League board must not accept the Club in the premier and vice versa we can refuse promotion.
- Reasons for the League: Is the Club strong enough for Premier? Have the Club enough players, enough money for more games?
- Reasons for the Club: Is this meaningful? Do we have enough educated players for the Premiership? What happens to our beginners without a 2nd Team?

And other questions. Normally we are a "perfect" Club for the 2nd league in Austria. My occupation is bookmaker, if I had offered outrights for my team bettors got a 25/1 - 40/1 ...

When we will get 4-5 educated players in the next 2 months we will think about. But normally we lose 6-7 players every season and we must fill up with beginners. For beginners is the 2nd league the limit what is possible, the Premiership is too strong.
