mackenzie will be coaching australia no matter what happens between now and when deans contract is up. plenty of coaches around for the force to choose from that shouldnt be a problem. never liked graham, this is a weak act on his part. achieved nothing, he must be so proud.

wonder what graham henry is doing at the moment?
need a high profile coach of his calibre to attract world class players. hope pocock stays.if he dosn't force are doomed.pack is solid,backs are reserves in any other team at best.
flyhalf is a 'poison chalice' at the force.
don't understand why top class players are not coming to perth,apart from isolation,perth has a great climate,hot women:),fairly safe,great lifestyle if a little 'boring' at times

Surely this a backward step. What are Richard Grahams credentials? Poor Reds fans I reckon. Don't worry Force fans, Pat lam is / will be available... although that would probably be a backward step too.

@ Ramage... only a matter of whether it's before or after Lions tour: if Wobblies fail to beat Wales and/or win Bledisloe and/ or 4N he'll go after the eoy tour, should they manage some or all he'll see out his current contract i.e. to end of 2013.
Almost be worth seeing them thrash Wales, win Bledisloe & 4N, kicking ass oop North & dealing to Lions, just to see how the new CEO justifies firing him... on second thought the downside is endless crowing from Trinats so maybe not...

So Graham is off to coach the Reds next year.Interesting that Mckenzie is moving to the Director Of Rugby. Is this the first move to allow him to strike for the soon to be vacant post of Coach of Australia. As predicted the knives are out for Deans. E tu Brute!
