Yep, Quade just does it using his own name and not a pseudonym on the internet
He inherited an absolute basket case, starting with the sacking of McBain.
Because Poey played as a notional and traditional No 7. Michael plays as a ? Maybe a 12 but he doesn't like it there.
He inherited a basket case, and there were plenty of injuries. But it was under him the Reds capitulated 92-3 against the Bulls, which still stands out as the most disgusting effort I have ever seen from a professional sporting team.
Cheika has publicly and stridently set out his stall based on ‘loyalty’ and a dogmatic approach to a ‘style’ of play
When you do that, you simply cannot complain when you get the pineapple if it doesn’t work. All this equivocating about fairness and not having the players is bollocks
He gave himself one bullet, it missed. C’est la vie. Au revoir
No need for this
That's right. Two years with two one year options. Can always be renegotiated if things turn out better than expected.
Four year contracts should be labeled Cheika contracts and be banned for evermore.
Man, I'd love to know what Chieka thinks Castle hasn't given him. Outside of removing the Giteau's law completely, what has he asked for that RA hasn't given?
You obviously missed the Crusaders putting 96 points on NSW (oddly enough NSW managed to finish second - on the table, they finished third in that match).
Bob Dwyer, sorry to mention that!
I'm not so sure about getting Eddie back. Personally, I haven't forgiven him for what he did to a whole generation of Australian props. In his quest for effectiveness around the park, he completely devalued the set piece and made our scrum in particular a laughing stock for years. Yes he may have learned, but once bitten, twice shy.
FWIW, I can't see us affording either Jones or Joseph. Rennie jad some good cattle at Waikato, but I don't think he'd be a bad option. Feel free to cut and paste this in four years.
Rumour is 4 year contract being offered to Rennie
They should offer 2 years plus equity.
5% of the magic beans?
Yeah it’s all about the World Cup. Again.
Fuck me, they haven’t learnt a thing.
Well we've just had a Super Rugby winning ex-Randwick coach fond of mind games, and that didn't go great. So rolling straight into another one... I don't know.
From what I read of Rennie I reckon he's our man. The kiwis rate him too, which helps.
I’m not against it, i don’t think it’s the best idea but not the worst
2 years isn’t a huge amount of time, this gives him more time to focus on getting the squad and processes right rather than having to worry about having a good winning percentage in the first 1-2 years
Plus japan for the last 8 years have focussed solely on the World Cup, to the point where they pulled guys out of the sunwolves squad to focus on training and it seems to have paid off handsomely
I would be going 3 years and then review. If things are going well, 1 or 2 year extension. If they aren't, there is still enough time to put a new coach in.
