Edward Suciu named as new Romanian coach
December 2, 1999
The new coach of the Romanian national team is Eduard Suciu, coach of the club champions Steaua (The Star).
Forty-seven years age, Suciu played for Romania between 1974 and 1982 as scrum-half, and has 22 caps.
He takes over coaching of the team from the sacked Mircea Paraschiv, who took Romania to two World Cups. The first international game for Romania under Suciu will be on February 20th against Holland in the second division of the 6 Nations.
Proposals to remove promotion and relegation from the Aviva Premiership would be for the good of the game overall, argues John Taylor
