And a superb goal kicker.

Scotland skipper retires

i am struggling to remember them good mitch, then again my memory is not too flash on some things.

set piece of the force i never thought was outstanding.

Wise choice: Scott Wisemantel new attack coach as Wallabies confirm multiple appointments

crappers has been there all along hasn’t he?

as the physio and then scrum coach and even when not offically scrum coach he was still doing it.

that was my impression anyway.

twas i remember clearly back in 98 when certain rugby experts were complaining about macqueen being an overseer and not actually coaching.

he was supposedly leaving it all to miller and lane.

funnily enough those experts don’t talk about those comments now when looking back at mcqueen’s years.

that is true. remember that clearly, when he interviewed for the abs job after the 07 wc he was asked about his assistants and he didn’t have clear set of who and why.

whereas ted did.

in regards to e.jones, he was not at all amused at being put with assistants he didn’t want.

my memory is terrible so i can”t remember who his assistants were in 2005.

didn’t know that.

shows how out of touch i am!

am loving seeing these scores from lab.

very impressed by the lad.

Labuschagne shines against impressive NZ attack

i am a fan of 2 year contracts unless they are young players with amazing ability and potential and even then only at a push, like jordan p.

there is no problem with 2 years options added on to the contracts with kpis to be met, on both sides.

4 years i have read people justify, personally i just don’t feel it is necessary.

if the ship goes awry during the 2 years after a world cup, then a new appointment can be made.

look at the turn around jones had with england within one season.

4 years is a very long time in professional sport.

Ian Foster pips Scott Robertson to be named new All Blacks coach

quick question do the kiwis have an equivalent to johnson?

the english?

the south africans?

not being out house stirrer, just asking a question. i am not as in tune as you lads.

Wise choice: Scott Wisemantel new attack coach as Wallabies confirm multiple appointments

very true.

i read something about e.jones a couple of months back from interview.

his assistants were put onto him by the aru.

i think deans had the same.

i am not privy to the ins and outs but i don’t think it is as cut and dry as you imply.

Wise choice: Scott Wisemantel new attack coach as Wallabies confirm multiple appointments

agree again with you peter.

Wise choice: Scott Wisemantel new attack coach as Wallabies confirm multiple appointments

wasn’t that crappers?

how were the force forwards?

mauger was a class player.

Why the Giteau Law has to be fit for purpose in 2020

12 and 15. 13 is not his spot.

first receiver on phase play.

am a big fan of the lad.

Karmichael Hunt re-signs with Waratahs

last season he looked great as well soap.

this season he seems to have stepped up a level again.

very happy for the guy.

tim kelaher’s was worse jez

Clean slate: Rennie appointment starts a new era for Australian rugby

hunt, if not for an off field event and an injury or two, could have been what we have missing at 12.

Could Samu Kerevi really play for Fiji if he wanted to?

yep. agree neil.

i admit though jaco really did my head in the week before last.

here is hoping we won’t be speaking about none of the 4 officials after the game on saturday!!

Jerome Garces to referee Rugby World Cup final

was he?

what i found interesting was that he was there with mitchell.

not borthwick nor wisemantel.

mitchell deserves some dues as does eddie for picking him.

many rightfully saw it as a left field call after gustard went to quins. a few tried to make a drama out of it.

mitchell was excellent as an assistant with woodward.

sometimes people just have to find their position and being top dog might not be it.

laurie fischer could well be that guy in oz rugby,

Top of the Boks: South Africa join England in World Cup Final

I hold my hand up for that one.

I was wrong.

I still respect him greatly though for being the only regional coach to win both hemispheres.

Difference between intl and regional is too great for some unfortunately.

Eddie Jones has performed a coaching master class for the ages

gilbert our game is fundamentally simple.

the unique and annoying thing is that very few of us can nail it down.

henry i agree i with you. something about school teachers and rugby isn’t there. the pyschs would have a field day!

sir mcgeech i would throw in there.

if eddie wins next week then definitely he will be amongst them.

there are quite a few more but the list is almost embarrassingly small in relation to how many of us have played the game and are still involved in it or follow it with a passion.

what a great team sport we have!!

doctor there were 3 big misses for me for the welsh.

anscombe before the comp. he was forming a nice set up with parkes and davies.

josh navidi last weekend. incredible player.

and finally jonathan davies was not fit. he is the key to their backline. he is for me the best 13 in world rugby.

they knew he wasn’t 100% but this was a world cup semi and they had to go with him, he was a shadow of himself today. 100% for heart but like johnny may yesterday one of his legs couldn’t give him 100%.

injuries are part and parcel of rugby. sadly though, like australia, wales doesn’t have much behind the first xv.

Seven talking points from Wales vs Springboks

wow rt!!

i am definitely going to keep to my 5 word, 1 sentence comments after that.

great thoughts and even better writing!!

excellent work!!

The tantalising RWC final that few saw coming awaits

agree sarge. the v was a lot like campo back in the day. taking the mickey, end of.

the abs are much better than that to let that sort of stuff rattle them, i am quite sure a few of them enjoyed the difference.

what beat them was a better team on the day. as they graciously admit.
