And so ends 2014 from a rugby point of view in Australia, and what a tumultuous year it was!
As coach of the Waratahs, that is.
While the Wallabies suffered another loss against Ireland, it was their best performance on this tour.
I didn’t think the Wallabies could take any further steps backwards – but against France they somehow managed to do so.
It was always likely that the Wallabies would struggle in their first Test under a new coach, particularly given that the coaching change came mid-season.
When Robbie Deans was shown the door after the British and Irish Lions series in 2013, Ewen McKenzie had two weeks with the Wallabies squad to introduce his style of game before the first Bledisloe Cup match.
