    The one and only Wallaby Coach thread

    The appointment of Jones is an unmitigated disaster. It was the most high stakes poker appointment that just got more and more bizarre as it went on. So many questions? If Jones was playing the long game (ie. picking young guys for the future) why not see it through? Blind Freddy knows that...

    Not sure he could have blown it up more if he tried!

    The one and only Wallaby Coach thread

    Some observations/questions; 1. Does the head coach have to be an Australian? 2. What does success look like over the next 2-4 years? 3. Does Australia have the talent/player pool?

    Rugby World Cup 2023

    I dont buy it. The media blow up about it either way. Too tired/battlehardened

    Agree. I don't buy the 'tired' argument. Always gets trotted out after a loss. And they're battle hardened if they win.

    RWC Oct 15 2023 1/8 Final Ire vs NZ.

    I was definitely confident. I thought we'd win. it was on the back on the last couple of years for us and NZ. It's mad, Ireland have spent the last 30 odd years being the lovable pissheads who ultimately lose. So people weren't threatened. We're now a real team and when you get to be a...

    RWC Oct 15 2023 1/8 Final Ire vs NZ.

    Definitely. The All Blacks played brilliantly. They were tactically excellent and aside from the usually excellent Savea and Jordan I saw great games from Cane, the front row and a vintage Beauden Barret performance. All I've heard from Kiwi fans the last couple of years is how this is a non...

    RWC Oct 15 2023 1/8 Final Ire vs NZ.

    Ironically I think the Irish generally hade a lot of respect for the Kiwis even before they won in 2011. Take your point though as it's up to Ireland to work on Ireland and keep improving. I'm not complaining about the draw but it's mad to think Ireland and France are on the way home and...

    Well, this discussion over the last few pages has made me appreciate the state of Irish rugby (albeit living here and still caring about the Wallabies/Australian rugby) Getting called a choker doesn't feel like the worst case anymore

    I've now had a day to get over my heartbreak. All this talk of Ireland choking is just wind up. I get it. In reality what happened 4 years ago (or even before that is kind of irrelevant). We don't just watch rugby for World Cups. Ireland have been brilliant for 18 months up to and...

    Completely heartbroken. Not sure if it’s hurts more to lose like this than all the other quarter final blow outs. Congratulations to New Zealand. That was some test match and you saved your best for when it counted (4 more years of Ian Foster?).

    So back to the match, what's everyone's prediction? Ireland by 12

    Apologies...to be fair I'd rather talk about the match.

    So how would you amend the rules for eligibility? Only play for the country of your birth? NB: I don't agree that Lowe, Gibson Park or Aki should be playing for Ireland as I think they have no connection to Ireland at the time of arrival.
