She came from NZ netball and that’s where she should of stayed. My beloved bulldogs in the NRL went backwards under her watch, the club was in a total shambles, has taken us a few years to get back in track and rugby Australia are still a basket case under her watch.
Blame must start at the top with the boss administrator.
Although I agree with the rest of your post.

Best team "won" FFS Just shows how many Chang's were consumed this morning. Said before, tough game but the Boks well worth their win. So glad we don't have to listen to the "gushing praise" from the English Commentators and Media if the English had won. So many people think all Scots, Welsh and Irish support for anyone who plays against England is hatred. No its not, we just hate the English Media and their outpourings of shear crap. Hope the upside down world can come to grips with being 3rd and 5th.
Or perhaps you are wrong when you think all scots welsh and irish support the opposition . I am welsh and wales first any uk team second and most of my mates the same . I wanted england to win as i am british.
Absolutely wrong tactics . England have not been a good rugby team for years as they rely on muscle over skill . When the run out on the pitch looks like a group of body builders . forwards absolutely crap except for otoje . only have 3 rugby players who can score a try . anthony watson , johnny may and ben youngs who never had a chance as england tried the whole game to drive through and outmuscle the SA forwards but could not do so as the african forwards are hard but can also play rugby .After 20 minutes they should have got quick ball wide all the time and after half time i thought they would come out with an expansive game , but no , more the same . Up the middle
Agree with you about the way the game was played. But my point was that the English media were going on and on about England's sheer brilliance against the Aussies and the AB's. They were not, they were good enough to win both games but brilliant 'World Beaters' no. I don't hate them but I am heartily sick of the constant reminders of 1966 etc, etc. Not from players but the media.

I listened to Eddie Jones's crap response in the after match interiew, when he defended the result by saying, something along the lines of, "these things happen and look we are still the second best team in the world".

Sorry Eddie, but one game does not make you the second best team in the world and coming second is no different to coming last. Nobody remembers or cares who comes second or why!!

Rather, if he was a smart man, he whould have said, "South Africa played a great game today and were clearly better than us, noticaby in their scrums and theiir tackling", and left it at that.

Why keep banging on pipoz ok we were beaten on the day by the better side as Eddie Jone's remarked to Warren Gartland your only playing for third. At least we got to the final which the Aussies or the Maoris failed to do.

I think pipoz is not banging on about the English being defeated and only made an informed call as to Eddie Jones's comments. Perhaps it was Eddie's attitude to the loss which caused his players to sook around at the presentation and not wear their 2nd place medals. Eddie Jones should have complimented the Boks a little more. They completely outplayed the favourites, both with their tactics and also the physicality required to go the 80 minutes.
Getting to the final was a fine effort.
Bringing in any other team and throwing sour grapes their way for not making the final and additionally disrespecting the All Blacks team by calling them the Maoris is not correct either. They are 2 completely different teams and only one of them was playing in the RWC. It wasn't the Maoris.
No worries there's always next time for all teams.

Correct Barney, I am having a crack at Eddie and his somewhat derogatory remarks towards several other teams in the week leading up to the final and his flippant comments at the after final press conference, sit down. He should have acted more like other Coaches have in the past, in that positon and toned down his arrogance. You could tell Eddie hadn't been there before.

Needless to say, I have no time for the little prick. [-X
