I'm not really up with the new twitter age.
Who wrote that? Who is jbcallinan? And why should we take it seriously?
Are they still in New Zealand? Why is the story coming out of there?
Jim Callinan is a Sky Sports Reporter
Just checked out his twitter account then - apparently he's a Sky News sports reporter.
My guess it's because he's signed to someone in NZ?
Please be true, please be true, please be true, please be true!
Cock tease I reckon, will turn out to be some NZ team has sounded him out. Nothing will change.
I'm desperately trying not to get my hopes up.
"Whoa! Just got off the phone to NZ. Stand by for Robbie Deans to announce new role - appears he will not see this years Spring Tour. #rugby"
This guy works for ABC grandstand
Take that back, just got word of definite smoke. Deans wants out. Means no payout so ARU have no reason not to cut him.
I have it on good authority that he has been offered the Tahs head coaching role.
OK I made that up
This has just made my day
So wasn't QLD expected to make an announcement this week...Link?
is your source about the Tahs gig Radio or WiFi?
If the other news is fair dinkum, there will be plenty of happy gaggerlanders. Threads will go into meltdown.
How much bandwidth do the servers have?
That would do my head in. Not beyond the Tahs to pull something out of the hat like that though.
Not many top flight coaches available at the moment, so will the ARU appoint Link right off the bat or will they undertake a search?
Interesting to see what the reasons given will be for his departure.
So Cheika has rejected offers from the Force and hasn't with the Tahs. Is he an option if it isn't Link?
If true we have become so bad that he is prepared to walk without his money.
We as a rugby nation have worn him down.
We must have no hope.

My guess would be that Nuci or Totality Tony will take over as interim, with a short search by the ARU. Not many candidates out there, as far as I can tell. Most fans (and I'm going to guess players) would be very happy with Link, even if the search is pretty short. He's got the runs on the board, wide-ranging respect, and ---
Fuck it, I'm not speculating at all until Mad Robbie is gone.
IF he's gone will it be with immediate effect or at the end of the RC? Won't see spring tour suggests he'll step down after the tournament. In that case other 4 games would be a write-off with a lame duck coach in charge. Probably wouldn't get a replacement in before spring tour anyway but a caretaker would be possible.
