    I thought Dunning was nearing 50. Either way Dunning has played as many senior international tests as Robbie Deans, Graham Henry, Pieter de Villiers, Marc Lievremont, Andy Robinson, Declan Kidney, Nick Mallet and Warren Gatland put together.

    Just saying that the coachee has more experience at the top level than the coachor.

    No reflection on anyone's coaching ability whatsoever, if that's what you're suggesting Hansie.

    He might be a QLD stalwart, but stiles was the start of the shit generation of scrummaging props in Australian rugby, to much focus on running rugby rather then scrummaging and forward work, he was definitely not remembered for his astute forward work

    Maybe he can coach it better then he could play it

    He was a butter ball who ran with his pants up his @rse
    The worst scrummager to pull on the gold jersey
    His signature is a retrograde step

    some of the best coaches in the world were the worst players in the world.

    You must have missed his scrummaging
    I'll put my 6 year old daughter forward as a better scrummager
    This is old school tie soggy sao
    The GPS schoolboy handshake and the cancer that keeps Australian rugby in the shadows

    We also need to remember that currently there are a lot more test matches a year and more chances for caps, a few years back they were fewer and far between tests and I believe personally you had to work harder to earn, now we are so busy giving every one a chance and "developing" so who knows who has earned it harder.Also subs used much more frequently now so again more chance for caps.

    His not from 60's, he only retired in 2005, similar to Nathan grey at the Rebels, I question whether Japan is really a effective place to do your coaching apprenticeship...I just feel there are far better candidates out there
