The Saints board are set to consult current and former players as they seek to recruit the perfect successor for Jim Mallinder. Mallinder's 10-year stay at Franklin's Gardens came to an end on Tuesday as the club opted to part company with the director of rugby. They are now in the process of bringing in short-term coaching support and a long-term boss. And the board will get advice from as many trusted sources as possible in their bid to replace Mallinder successfully.
The club called time on Mallinder's 10-year tenure at Franklin's Gardens on Tuesday, stressing the need for change. Saints currently sit 10th in the Aviva Premiership and bottom of Champions Cup Pool 2 following a run of nine defeats in their past 10 matches in all competitions. Attack coach Alan Dickens has been placed in temporary charge of the team, with the rest of the coaching setup remaining unchanged for now.
Saints chief executive Mark Darbon insists Dan Biggar is still 'incredibly excited' about moving to Franklin's Gardens - despite Jim Mallinder's departure. Saints confirmed the capture of Biggar back in September, with the Ospreys and Wales star to arrive in the summer of 2018. The 28-year-old, who is currently sidelined with concussion, was at the Gardens last week, working as a television pundit during Saints' Champions Cup defeat to Ospreys.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
