I’m sure we’ll know in 48 – 72 hrs

That’s a relief

Cheika survives Rugby Australia review - for now

How much worse could they be really?

Cheika must go, even if it means losing at the World Cup

What That Guy said^

Excellent post

Why Valentine Holmes will make an NFL roster

I’ll do it for free beer on game days

The Wrap: What can Australian rugby learn from Grant Fox?

I’ll do it

The Wrap: What can Australian rugby learn from Grant Fox?

Yep
Also rugby league footwork is worth just about nothing in the NFL

Why Valentine Holmes will make an NFL roster

“Players in the NFL are not used to the quick footwork that rugby league players like Holmes possess”

Really?
I don’t know much about Holmes, but I seriously doubt he has faster feet than the average NFL running back.

Also you forget an important thing – without an innate sense of what is happening in the play around him, built over many years and something you don’t get playing any other sport, it doesn’t matter how quick his feet are.

Nice sidestep

How can anyone trust RA?

It's time to centralise Australian rugby

And… how can any rugby organisation have any trust in RA, particularly in handing over any kind of control to them?

It’s not ‘pointless’, it goes to the heart of the discussion.

It's time to centralise Australian rugby

This is exactly the problem, no one knows who is in charge, or who is pulling what strings.

What was the last rugby related (ie non Folau twitter) press release from RA?

It's time to centralise Australian rugby

“What happened with the Force is they gave up their licence for additional funding/loan.

That’s not at necessary to achieve effective centralisation.”

Except that that was exactly the basis on which it was offered, as per the testimonies of Clyne et al – it was intended all the Super teams would eventually come under these agreements.

What if he did?

A phone call to another rugby person is hardly news in and of itself – unless it’s made out to be sneaky by, say, cancelling it when people found out.

Of course the general rugby public would gossip about it, but we’ll spend two weeks arguing over where a player was standing when we can all see the video, our opinions are easily discounted.

Cheika safe for now as RA rule out play for White

Castle?

Seems RA have (again) found the absolute worst way to do something

Cheika safe for now as RA rule out play for White

There’s no way she wasn’t told to cancel it by someone.

That’s the only way this adds up

Cheika safe for now as RA rule out play for White

… So Castle thought a phone conference with Jake White was a good idea, then suddenly didn’t?

For no apparent reason.

I have to ask in all seriousness, what dirt does Cheika (or his mates) have on the board?

1 . “So what was that all about?”

2. “No really”

Suggested questions for Rugby Australia's end-of-season review

Maybe understudy / work experience is a better term, I meant give him some exposure to that level without any commitment.

I don’t think the sole selector model is inherently bad, but there needs to be some kind of accountability for poor selection.

Instead he seems untouchable, picks 4th and 5th string players while better players miss out and NO ONE SAYS ANYTHING.

Maybe Wessels as his apprentice?

“yet again, more complaining about coaching and administration. Just face it, we dont have good enough players”

Where do you imagine “good enough players” come from?

The cabbage patch?

They come from coaching and administration that does it’s job

Agreed, it’s false economy to hold onto him to save paying out a contract while losing fans with every insipid performance.

I suggested Jake White a year and a half ago and was shouted down because “boring Jake Ball”

Rookie error Gary

It’s well known we have more sheep than people

The annoying thing is, Robbie Deans, who was a far superior coach, was ousted for far less.

Ewen Mackenzie, who was a far superior coach, was also ousted for far less.

Cheika must have naked photos of someone
