The Wrap: The patience of rugby players and fans is about to be rewarded

There’s lot of stuff that doesn’t make the papers nd some stuff that does, yet shouldn’t

The Wrap: The patience of rugby players and fans is about to be rewarded

Of course they did.

Obviously they were overstaffed by 1/3. Should never have been employed. There should be at least parity , not 95% for the pen pushers and 60% for the players. Still a joke to me

The Wrap: The patience of rugby players and fans is about to be rewarded

The only reason, I believe, that strike action was mooted was because the players were on 60% and RA yobs went to 95%. That was disgraceful.

JD, terrific read. Rennie picked players on form AND potential and got the job done. His “man management” skulls seem great as well. Hopefully he is also very successful as Wallaby Coach.

A Chiefs fan’s tribute to Dave Rennie

Drawn series are rubbish. There should never be an even number of games. Play 1 or 3 games .
Thanks Rhys.

The time has come for extra time in Bledisloe Cup deciders

Doesn’t Kurtley originate from The Druit, as well.

Aussie abroad: David Lolohea

Great read James. Thank goodness for French Rugby to find a spot for a lad not quite at Super Rugby standard. He seems humble, in thanking his Dad.
Hope he continues to thrive.

Concept is flawed from a Australian rugby perspective. We get no benefit at all. If a game was to be played it should be Wallabies v Kangaroos.

A cross-code All Blacks vs Kangaroos match could happen this year

Reckon a compromise of 70% will be reached to avert strike action.

Enever moves to Premiership rugby

Obviously the piers that be, whether at the the Reds, Ponies or At Wallaby level, didn’t share your view Tooly. Good luck to the lad !

If RA can operate on reduced staff numbers then they were overstaffed for years. To put the remaining guys on 95% is laughable. The Admin, Coaches and players are ALL equally necessary and therefore should be on the same salary cuts.

Trouble is RA want players to go to 60% but putting the Admin on 95%. That is a joke! If players dig in AND they should, RA is in all sorts with the broadcast deal torn up and a mass of player defections, the result

Wessels needs to consult with Rennie to ascertain his nest Wallaby spot. AND then play him there for the Rebels.

Will Dave Rennie remember Australia’s forgotten man?

Thanks Nic. Yes Hodge is a “victim” of his versatility. I’m still unsure of his best position and even then would he be good enough to start (when compared to other players in those positions). I like his attitude. I think he will continue as a “cover” player.

Has JOC ever been a captain, anywhere ?

Dave Rennie lays it all out ahead of Wallabies start date

Probably should at least a bloke who starts.

Brett, my point of the interim scenario was that ATM there are no young blokes capable. There should be in a couple of years. The blokes that may make the best captains now, may not be around at next RWC.

So, if Hoops gets the boot (from captaincy role), who is the likely replacement?

Dave Rennie lays it all out ahead of Wallabies start date

Dave seems to be moving forward well. Very hard to disagree with his sentiments. The captaincy issue is a major one. Plenty will suggest that with new coaches, a new team (largely) a change is necessary. I agree. But who ? DHP, Toomua, AAA, White,. Slipper. The cupboard is pretty bare unless a young bloke steps up and locks down a spot – matbe, Wright. There is no clear candidate to take is to RWC so if Rennie does bounce Hoops, he may go for an “interim” captain for a year or 2 UNTIL one of the young blokes really steps up. The easier option is to leave Hoops in the job. Interesting !

James, terrific read on a terrific player. Thanks.

Ritchie Arnold is no loss !

Izack Rodda makes French connection after Reds departure

AND supposedly would have taken less in Australia as well. It is imperative that the players are engaged in the process of moving rugby through this mess.

Rodda leaving the Reds and Thorn and using Covid to do so presents no problem from me. To sign down south and stay in Australia would have been smart . Maybe RA backed the Reds and refused a top up. Shows support to those other 192 (? ) Players.
It’s now a bad look.
I hope RA “blacklist” him.
