After the recent run of poor displays by the Springboks, do you think Jake White should get the boot???
Originally posted by boarmanCould not agreewith you more!!!!! Only problem is with the World Cup so close it would be a huge disruption for any team to get a new coach now, but as you said they are professionals and should be able to cope with it. DOWN WITH WHITE

Connolly is always looking for excuses as to why they lost ,when plain and simple its his coaching ,you cannot keep blaming the weather (they are professional players who should be able to play in all conditions)nor can you keep switching the team around you need to be settlin ...[text shortened]... not.
Yeah get rid of both of them ,White has been there to long and its time for fresh ideas .

I've never been one to call for coach sacking. How much does a coach really mean nowadays in the professional era?
If the best players in the country are selected and they have enough time to play together and start gelling as a team, what impact does a coach have on a team? Seriously?

Originally posted by Kiwi kidNow now, the World Cup is not necessarily won by the best team.
Its all irrelevant, the AB's are going to clean up the World Cup next year hands down! I would be suprised if any team scores a try against them during the tounament. We are simply too good for the rest of the world.

I played at varsity and club level, does that make my points less valid than yours?
You just proved my points, thanks. I'm talking solely about the game at professional, national level. The lower the level of play, the more influence a coach has.
