Embedded in the top of every rugby story, Ken…

Raiwalui leaves Fiji job to head 'home'- but RA or Super gig not on the cards

Oh, neither do I. On that front we definitely agree..

What are you actually talking about, Bobby?

What are you suggesting I don’t like to accept?

Do take the time to have a listen to our chat with Simon if you can, it will quite likely confirm everything you thought about the man and the coach – it certainly did for Harry and I.

And he did indeed confirm that the next role, while he hopes to be based in Australia, won’t be with RA or any Australian sides..

“The “Australian Way” is being redefined over the past several years because of the PI (heeitage) players. You don’t like to accept that, but that’s the reality…”

Your words, right there..

Interestingly CS, just today Eddie corrected a journo who thought that when he spoke of ‘alignment’ he meant ‘centralisation’.

His response was along the lines of “Centralisation is one bloke at the top telling everyone what they should do, and we don’t want that..”

Cheers Jonty, glad someone noticed that!

KP, it’s probably why no coach mentioning the Australian Way can elaborate on it much..

I know what you mean OB, I don’t think can only be done in a totally domestic environment..

They’re all deserving of their SF place, is what I mean there Piners.

And they’re capable, because they’re in the SF first and foremost. England are the only unbeaten team left!

A very good summary, ATW..

If RA was in great financial shape OZ, and not literally taking on more debt against future earnings, I could agree with your general point…

Wouldn’t that be part of the Australian Way, Rohan?

Good comment, Don, thanks..

It’s become a huge myth, certainly IFTS. Exactly because it’s not explained..

I actually don’t think the two are mutually exclusive, Nobody..

Portugal showed glimpses of what can be achieved by being creative in attack.

Ireland’s being showing this as well for several years, Shorey..

This is a great comment Highlander, two really good examples..

Well that’s a ridiculous comment, CPM. I thought you were better than that..

'Be Australian': How the RWC QF classics showed we must urgently define and deliver our own style

however who can really define “the Australian Way”
RT, I would suggest anyone promoting it as a method going forward needs to be able to define it – or even just elaborate a bit..
