CARNEGIE PARTS COMPANY WITH KEY

Leeds Carnegie director of rugby Andy Key has parted company with the club with immediate effect.

A club statement says his departure is part of a restructuring of the management team.

Head coach Neil Back will now be solely in charge and Leeds will not appoint a new director of rugby.

Chief executive Gary Hetherington said: “This was a tough decision, however we felt it was important we took it as part of our overall vision.”
