Wouldn't it be terrible if Chubby is still the best available national coach?
Kafer sounds like a facilitator, your blame should be directed at Whittaker (well that's how I read this article)
JON didn't ever sack a Wallaby head coach did he?Would it have been thus when JON was CEO? I doubt it.
The organisation chart must show the head coach reporting to the CEO. Nothing else would make sense, in organisational terms.
No decent operator would accept a job as CEO for an organisation whose board is going to make a crucial decision like this.
If you are right, we might as well give up.
I think Kafer’s responsibilities, along with Pocock’s playing contract, is one of the most misunderstood subjects amongst Australian rugby fans....
If their finals push was on the line, I wouldn't ask the Rebels to drop Genia, Hodge, and DHP, nor would I ask the Tahs to drop Foley, Beale, and Folau, nor the Reds Rodda, LSL (Lukhan Salakaia-Loto), and Kerevi.
If they were asked, I'd hope they turn around and say "I'm not throwing away our season".
Don't get me wrong, there should be communication between the Wallabies and the Super teams, but it should be along the lines of "I intend to use this player in all fifteen tests this year, so it might be good for their wellbeing to rest them here and there as able". The communications shouldn't be in the form of making a phonecall a few days before the game and saying "Yo, don't use your key forwards, I don't want you to".
