    A good WC campaign & so far they've taken England & Wales close, & beaten Italy
    Just what I was going to say, and I have no doubt that the current Scotland coach (Vern Cotter) has a lot more ability than Richard Graham...!

    Tell you what. Whilst he coached the Force, he engaged with and helped out at many clubs and schools. He was friendly and interested. This is far more than his successor Foley and his assistants who have barely engaged with many at community level. Quite sad that so many here take a perverted glee in his demise.

    FFS you trolls are full of merde Pleeeeeease for all our sake get back under the rock you crawled out from under

    Braindead Dick brought the Force to within a whisker of permanent ruin. Go back to the posts on this forum circa 2012 to re-immerse yourselves in just what angst we were under at the time.

    Good riddance, after getting mid season sacked from his last two jigs leaving both teams bottom of table and with star players all gone or going, he will never get another coaching job even overseas.

    Now I wonder if all of the focus is going to be on M Foley and his team's performance?

    I think that would all depend upon whether Messrs Stiles and O'Connor can effect any actual change in their organisation. I would suggest the boys are on a hiding to nothing since one of the hallmarks of Mr Graham's tenure at any club is a distinct exodus of talent. I would think that there needs to be a heavy duty recruiting drive before any results will be seen and that is unlikely (but not impossible) to happen before the end of this season.

    One thing I know for sure, Queensland have the money and the will to trade out of this disaster far more quickly than Western Australia does!

    i think they might manage a few wins with a couple of tweaks to the game plan, when they get the injured forwards back & either stiles or O'Connor works out how McIntyre plays best - because so far he's better than what I've seen. His NRC games and watching him run about for sunny bank have been better. Even taking into account the different levels he's playing at. He's more of a thinker than we've seen so far. Getting the sunny bank 9 in as well will help him & the rest of the backs out a lot - they've played a lot of games together

    Frisby and McIntyre played well together for Brisbane City in the NRC, being coached by Stiles, but they did have a pretty dominant forward pack.
    They actually had a poor game in the final, and Canberra also had a good pack. Could be that they need those extra fractions of a second a dominant pack gives you, and that you certainly don't have in Super Rugby behind a weak pack.

    Bully? He seems like a nice guy whenever I've spoken to him or seen him. What am I missing?
