Taller, faster……not yet stronger but give him time!

Coach’s Corner Issue 11: Is it time to bring the Europeans back home?

Ps. my article on Davis this week, would make any interview rather interesting!

Coach’s Corner Issue 11: Is it time to bring the Europeans back home?

😂

Much better blokes than me putting their hands up.

Plus Davis hasn’t resigned yet!

Coach’s Corner Issue 11: Is it time to bring the Europeans back home?

Hooper and Warren-Vosayaco already confirmed.

Hanigan reported to have agreed terms but not officially announced.

Would just be Skelton – although in his case he is signed through 2022 with La Rochelle so not going to happen in the next 12 months.

Potential is there if he wants in for the 2023 WC.

Coach’s Corner Issue 11: Is it time to bring the Europeans back home?

Yeah and can have both.
.
Ned and Will at lock with Williams and Douglas developing.
.
Swinton and Warren-Vosayaco at 6/8 with Harris, Sinclair and Wood pushing
.
Hooper at 7 with Tizzano getting more time, Gamble behind those two.
.
Suddenly there would be depth, experience and some significant go forward.
.
Some of those bench guys could rapidly overtake the starters as well.

Something I’m keen to get a look at for the Tahs.

Even if it’s just to help him balance his game, would be good for his development to put some shifts in there.

Coach’s Corner Issue 11: Is it time to bring the Europeans back home?

I’m in the Valetini 6, Wilson 8 camp and pretty sure I’m not Robinson Crusoe.

All I’m saying is that the balance equation isn’t something unique to fitting Skelton into a squad.

As another example, plenty of posters are suggesting both Hooper and McReight in the 23 – playing dual 7’s requires a balance consideration as well.

Coach’s Corner Issue 11: Is it time to bring the Europeans back home?

Could argue the same about Valetini/Wilson as a 6/8 pairing, they require elite jumpers elsewhere in the pack as neither of them is particularly strong in the air.

Have seen posters suggesting Wright at 7 to achieve this.

It’s about balance always is.

Coach’s Corner Issue 11: Is it time to bring the Europeans back home?

I think we could manage it by ensuring that our bench back rower was a strong lineout candidate. The likes of Wright, Swinton, Anstee, Uru and Naisarani all offer enough in that space.

Kemeny is the other backrower picked in the training squad but I haven’t watched him enough to know if he’s an option.

Coach’s Corner Issue 11: Is it time to bring the Europeans back home?

Yes please!

This is excellent news

Valetini locked in until the end of 2023

Thanks BF – I look at the turn around north of the Tweed with a bit of envy and more than a bit of hope!

RA are saying PE is necessary or we turn amateur – I hear they are talking to three parties including Twiggy.

If he’s interested, Forrest is far and away my preferred option.

I believe he has the best interests of rugby in this country, while anyone else is coming in is looking primarily at the bottom line.

If we’ve got to hand over the keys to anyone, I hope it is him.

That’s cruel Cec!

Thanks RT. I’m not going anywhere, this is my code and this is my team. We’ll be back, there are too many of Australia’s best players that come from my home state to be otherwise.

I just dare to dream of an administration that is a help rather than a hindrance!

Penney wanted him and between Rapp and the Board was over ruled.

😂 love it!

Thanks Hugh.

He’ll always have 2014 to hang his hat on BUTto seemingly be leaving the place in a worse state than when he arrived in 2012 is quite remarkable.

It is time for the Waratahs' Roger Davis to go

He was, I wish he’d stayed out there trekking Tassie!

Thanks BS.

We’ve got a pretty challenging TT ahead of us but hopefully up from there!

Thanks for the reminder on that one JSJ.

I cringed when he said and am embarrassed all over again re-reading it.

The man is tone deaf.

It is time for the Waratahs' Roger Davis to go

Yeah, very similar to the RA one. I think NSWRU followed them in changing around the same time following the Arbib Review in 2012.

Cheers Ken.

This piece was very focused on the senior appointments by the board and their strategic vision on NRC.

Am currently bouncing a few ideas around on leadership and culture and will see that if I can pull enough together for a follow up.

It is time for the Waratahs' Roger Davis to go

Now that is a theory JC!

Although I suspect we shouldn’t be ascribing to malice what can be explained by incompetence.

Thanks mate.
