ALAN Tait has been removed from his post as head coach of Newcastle Falcons.

Owner Semore Kurdi has placed Tait on gardening leave, but a return to Kingston Park seems unlikely as the Falcons sit nine points adrift at the bottom of the Aviva Premiership with nine games left to go.

A new-look coaching team which includes South African national team assistant coach Gary Gold and England defence coach Mike Ford will be in force until at least the end of the current season.
