    Former NSW Waratahs assistant coach Todd Louden has a good record and the necessary experience







    FORMER NSW Waratahs assistant coach Todd Louden has expressed interest in the vacancy on the Wallabies coaching staff.

    Louden, who was the Waratahs attack and backs coach under Ewen McKenzie in 2008, has since been coaching Japanese club Ricoh.
    Out of contract at the end of the year, Louden has advised the ARU he is interested in replacing Wallabies skills coach Richard Graham, who has been appointed head coach of the Western Force.
    Louden, who was also assistant coach of the Bulls when the South African team won the Super rugby title in 2007, certainly has the necessary experience and knowledge to act as the Wallabies skills coach.
    ARU chief executive John O'Neill was scheduled to meet with Australia coach Robbie Deans and high-performance manager David Nucifora this week to discuss the coaching vacancy.


    O'Neill indicated earlier this week that a decision on the assistant coach would be made at the ARU board meeting in Sydney next Friday.
    But it was unlikely the ARU would rush into a decision on a replacement for Graham.
    It is more likely the ARU board will endorse a proposal to have Nucifora join the coaching staff, possibly as a co-ordinator or looking after the lineout.
    Nucifora is already a national selector and is set to coach the Wallabies midweek team on its upcoming tour of Europe.
    The ARU would want to give itself more time to fully assess a range of potential candidates for Graham's job.
    Meanwhile, the NSWRU has appointed motorsport administrator Jason Allen as the Waratahs' new chief executive.
    Allen was chief executive of the South Australian Motor Sport Board, which was responsible for the Clipsal 500 V8 Supercars race, for the last two years.
    But it was Allen's experience in sports marketing that appealed to the Waratahs.
    Allen was national general manager consumer sales of Vodafone from 2004 to 2008 and general manager of the company's involvement with the sports industry. Even though Vodafone ended its naming rights sponsorship of the Wallabies the month before Allen's appointment in March 2004, he was involved in the company's sleeve sponsorship of the Waratahs and an individual sponsorship of former Test winger Lote Tuqiri, which helped to keep him from switching back to rugby league in 2006.
    NSW chairman Ed Zemancheff acknowledged they were not seeking a traditional rugby administrator to replace Jim L'Estrange, but a CEO with a strong sales and marketing background.
    "When we resolved to separate the business and the game of rugby at NSW we needed a different result and to achieve that you have to do things differently," Zemancheff said.
    "We envisaged someone who was a proven sports administrator and experienced in growing a business. When you strip it back, we are selling a product called rugby. That's what modern sporting businesses are all about."
    The Australian and New Zealand Rugby Unions have confirmed the fourth Bledisloe Cup will go ahead as scheduled in Hong Kong on October 30, despite disappointing ticket sales.

    That would be a very good move re Louden.

    Campo is the go to man. This is the best group of young backs to come through in a generation. They have the ability to destroy defences. They need guidance and strategies to exploit their skills.

    I always thought Campo was a brilliant player who would be a shit coach. I don't reckon he'd have the man management skills, nor the big picture mentality to cut it.

    Maybe the lack of a big picture and towering arrogance was what made him an awesome winger.

    Now in my moleskin trousers and my Williams boots
    Aboard an outlaw as he leaves the chutes
    In my goose neck spurs I rake their fiery hide
    And the girls all shouting around the ringside
    Oh he's the Fulla from Cunnamulla
    Yeah he's the Cunnamulla Fulla

    Bulls. Not Sharks.

    When they were talking about having him as a Force assistant coach players from NSW were apparently queueing up to come west.

    Might be able to fit it in while he's doing rehab. Done his ACL last night against the Tiges.

    Campo is a good coach, but you have to wonder what such a vocal person could do to 'team harmony'

    Face, Palm!

    Campo has an uncle? Musta missed that. Got that Wailin Jennings at the Penny Panthers mixed up too, according to Rex. He was pretty ordinary last night again.

    Go the Chooks.
