'School have been fantastic over dual role'
A HECTIC schedule is a small price to pay for juggling two first-rate jobs, believes Tony Windo.
Gloucester's scrum coach is with the Cherry and Whites two mornings a week, fitting his Kingsholm commitments around his full-time role as Bromsgrove School's director of rugby.
Windo admits he owes the school a big debt of gratitude, for allowing him to organise his time to fit in both roles.
He explained: "I've got to say a big thank you to Bromsgrove School, because they have been fantastic in allowing me to do this.

"I'm at Gloucester two mornings a week, and they have allowed me to take that time, which is brilliant.
"It means I have more work to do in the evenings, but I'm really enjoying the role at Gloucester, and combining that with working at the school, so it's certainly no chore.
"I think we've only just started on where this group of players can go where the scrum is concerned at Gloucester, and it's a very exciting time ahead and challenge to keep on improving."
Keen to help Gloucester's scrum contingent towards potential international honours, Windo said there is a healthy rivalry at the club.
He continued: "I would love to see Gloucester players winning opportunities with England, I'd love to help them get there.
"Rupert (Harden) had a taste in the summer, there's still plenty of time for Nick Wood, and Shaun Knight is coming along very nicely.
"Dan Murphy and Woody are having a great battle at loosehead this year, though, and there's a huge amount of talent in the squad.
"The battles between the players are intense, but all the players are totally supportive of each other, and it's great to see.
"They are 100 per cent working together, there's no cliques or divisions, and I think that will be massively important come the latter end of the season.
"Everyone wants Gloucester to succeed first and foremost, and that's the vital thing."
