A shame. He was the Wallabies first choice 12 for a good stint. Perhaps caught in the same trap Giteau was before he left Australia - is he a 10 or is he a 12? I think he is a good 10 and a very good 12. I hope he gets some more time at 10 overseas, comes back and shows everyone what he's got. He seems like a top bloke so I wish him well.
Interesting suggestion. I'd suggest Bernie might want to stick around at the Brumbies and get a couple more years of success under the belt before looking for national head coach gigs but England could certainly do a lot worse. I think it would be a big plus for them to find a coach who who is going to shake things up a bit and who is (a) respected, (b) focused on promoting a skillful, running game and (c) not aligned with any particular faction in England.
Was there any other coach in the world contracted through until 2020?!? That was an extraordinary show of faith... or something.
