    I am a Western Australian living in Sydney. If that doesn't indicate someone already Exiled I don't know what does.

    There is a difference between an exile and an expat. But after 12 years around this joint it's a bit late for a TWF deed poll. Although we could still call you "X"

    I think he needs to focus on RA's administration of the game more in these discussions, getting stuck into Cheika's assistants is one thing, but the toxic environment he is forced to work in is much worse than his Wallaby coaching performance.

    He has previously in regards to the Force but like the rest of us he is waiting to the meeting on Dec 10. I disagree that there is no one available White has put his hand up and usually has international out clauses in his contracts. Bin Raiwalui and Grey keep Larkham who has worked with White they can go around the country to the five sides stating what they are looking for and that everyone is starting from scratch. That’s how Schmidt operates. Peter Ryan and Laurie Fisher in as defence and forwards coaches. They have worked with White and Larkham. The Brumbies and Reds aren’t doing anything after July.

    Cheika is part of the problem he gets what he wants, throws tantrums, like the board his side has poor discipline, appointed a captain who doesn’t know the laws, put too much faith in toxic players like Beale, spent well over a million on buying out on contract players from the overseas then they come back on bigger money, skills have gone backwards, tactically naive,sends mixed messages to players so they leave and he now has the media against him.

    Larkham is a fish out of water. A good player doesn't always translate to a good coach.

    The attacking prowess of the Wallabies under Larkham as attack coach is unimaginative and directionless.

    Agreed. Our attack is the worst I've ever seen it. How deep are our forward runners? How predictable their running lines? How little creativity in midfield? It's dire.

    The biggest problem is the pack that Cheika picks. The back row is under sized, the whole pack lacks ball carriers in comparison Ireland when Healy starts has at least four then forwards off the bench who can do the same (Bealham, Kilcoyne, Dillane to name a few knocking on the selection door), clean out is dreadfully slow topped up by poor body position, pigs have poor handling skills and limited forward impact off the bench. With that it is very difficult to have attacking shape for the backs to launch off.

    You can’t have a 1-3-3-1 pod system when forwards lack skills, get isolated and don’t go forward. The backs still try to launch off this by cutting them out or run sideways which allows the defence to drift them to touch or isolate out wide to get a not releasing penalty. You know you are in trouble when players like Lawes and Ben Moon are winning turnovers or penalties.

    Throw in players standing static without their hands in front so they end up getting smashed. I remember O’Connell’s tackle on Genia driving him back five metres a couple of seasons ago. You don’t match changing inspiration from the Wallabies extensive leadership group.
