I think it's best to approach the coach search with an idea of the skills/background we want, and find someone who best fits. I'd love someone with international head coach experience (something we haven't had in a coach since I think Bob Dwyer in his second stint). I'd like someone with a demonstrated ability playing fast, running rugby, but also a tactical nous to change things up to suit the opposition or conditions. I'd like someone who is fairly open and honest, who can foster a good relationship with the players. Of the candidates thrown about, I think Jamie Joseph fits the bill perfectly. Jake White and Eddie Jones also work, but I have a lingering uneasiness about both considering they left our shores on unfriendly terms. Dave Rennie seems a good coach too, but are we mad to be continuing with our 'successful Super coach' formula? It's a bit simplistic to boil that down to why we hired Knuckles, Deans, McKenzie and Cheika, but that certainly was the common denominator in all of those choices. The other issue of course is whether any of these blokes are available and/or willing to do the job. And I've got no idea as to what the answer to that question is for any of them. .
