    New Zealand vs Argentina, Nov 14, 2020

    That is known as the Showbag FitzSimon Factor. He is always wrong, the more convinced he is that he is right the greater likelihood that he is wrong. On all things, at all times.

    McCauley is playing for them. He needs to be exited immediately

    Crusaders v Reds SR R6 2020 Friday 4:05PM (Q)

    He was superb, have not seen an Aust no8 do that for many years. Outstanding

    That's how Showbag does most of his best work

    For Victoria, at a time they were park footy at best. The selection pool would have been 10 teams tops. Ironically very grassroots. Grass would have been optional

    Wallaby Coach Conga Line

    Didn’t criticise the role. Only it’s expediency for an incapable CEO and a coach running off the rails.

    Think you are right, SA are going with Erasmus.

    Wallaby Coach Conga Line

    Reluctantly I would agree with that. He is not a strong candidate After the last experiment with a Kiwi I would prefer a local but acknowledge there is not a strong candidate about. I hope it runs well, I am less perturbed by Rennie than Johnson. He has no claim to his job that I can see...

    Wallaby Coach Conga Line

    Would not offer this as proof but it wasn’t hard to piece together weeks ago She wouldn’t or couldn’t maintain a relationship with Cheika, Johnson was the buffer and came at a 4 year cost with a solution for the coaching vacancy.

    Wallaby Coach Conga Line

    It was made when Johnson was appointed There had to be a credible coach prepared to work with him.

    Outstanding that adds to the debate.

    Bugger all, that puts him level with Johnson and Rennie’s last 6 years

    Wallaby Coach Conga Line

    Ok so Rennie has coached for a long while and last won anything of note in 2013. Johnson on what I can see has not won anything anywhere ever. He has 16 games as fill in coach for 5 wins, 3 of which were against Italy. Again, where is the compelling rationale for either?

    Not sure this helps? Again assuming Wikipedia is accurate

    Wallaby Coach Conga Line

    I cannot see how they found Johnson and on what basis they handed him the role he has? The rest is purely a result of that. He has somehow talked his way into a role that his resume suggests is light years from his achievements.

    Wallaby Coach Conga Line

    Unless Wikipedia has been hacked his only highlights are winning the SR in 2012 and 3 wins with NZ under 20’s. Finals only in Europe without winning. That would make Cheika at time of appointment far more compelling. You tell me what I am missing?

    Wallaby Coach Conga Line

    Larkham, with some senior assistants like Fischer. Have a close look at Johnson’s coaching history and experience. Nothing there that says he is “compelling”. Lot of wins against Italy, not a lot against anyone else.

    Wallaby Coach Conga Line

    There’s a shock. Decision made 6 months ago. Another dodgy decision by a desperate CEO and an exiting Chairman. No process, came down to who would take the job on the basis of reporting to Scott Johnson, who was also plucked out of obscurity. Everyone appointed for 4 years. FFS It’s a script...

    Saw a bit of Graham Richardson baking Baird on Sky last night. By his account the lowest human he has ever encountered. Not sure Richo is a great character reference for anyone but the venom was obvious and was on the basis of his conduct to others, not the speaker. AJ nodding along in the...
