    The answer to Wayne Smith's final question is clearly a resounding "NO".
    The last para was my own comment Andrewg - LOL! But yes- the narrative around the forums seems to have definitely shifted in a big way.

    The only irony is that the Southern Unions are meeting in fucking Ireland, no doubt a junket to watch the Six Nations final rounds.

    Of course! ‘Twas ever thus. Ditto for the Spring tour!!! Money that should be going to those grassroots Clyne mentioned in 2017 when it suited him but hasn’t mentioned since.

    What's the bet Japan, Fiji and anybody else who can scrape a team together get added so that the broadcasters are duped into paying for more "Premium Content" that nobody's going to watch.

    Super rugby is a gasping corpse-to-be

    Considering Larkham is a God damn legend and kicked that drop goal against RSA in 99 that secured the world cup final, and then they blitzed France in that final, I really hope Cheika meets his god damn end soon as he himself has done nothing but promote that despicable c**t Beale into what he regards a Wallaby legend and sold the Wallaby name out back to the days of the woblie wannabe. What an asshole.

    Settle down mate, larkham was a legend as a player, but really hasn't performed as a coach. He took a fire-pissing brumbies side, continued playing Jake ball and still couldn't crack a result that matched their potential then transitioned to steadily dismantling the attacking prowess of the wallabies.

    Granted, he had a lot of help at the wallabies, but the brumbies slow suffocation is all on him.

    Fine saying that however personality clashes not performance was the reason for moving him on. From what has been reported Larkham didn’t have a say in selections, tactics and was often sidelined to analysis. The RA also put out the press release when he wasn’t in the country. Classless from a classless organisation.

    We saw the same bullshit from the ACB today when they said the same thing about David Saker. The coach didn’t get on with Saker so they looked at getting rid of him since June/July.

    Again performance reasons weren’t the motive for his departure. It was mentioned in the press that Starc went to a coach in NSW to get advice. That doesn’t mean much as the top players have a go to mentor for one on one coaching as they have known the player for some time. They have brought in Troy Cooley who wasn’t really successful in his previous stint.

    Australian sporting teams are turning themselves in to European Football clubs giving the coach that much authority to get rid of people who challenge their opinions. That creates a toxic team environment.

    There won't be anyone else until Cheika needs to get rid of somebody to save his own arse again.

    To Cheika, assistant coaches are just protection for when the plan fails. (but I'm still aghast that Nathan Grey is there, his is officially the worst Wallaby Defense coach in the history of the team)
