Rugby Fans Question Fairness: ‘Doesn’t Seem Right’

As Australia looks for a new coach for the Wallabies, Mack Hansen has advised against selecting a New Zealander to lead the team. The process to find a replacement for outgoing head coach Dave Rennie is in full swing, with a number of Australian and international coaches being linked to the role. Hansen, although an Australian, believes that his home country should keep away from New Zealand coaches based on previous experiences and suggested Australian coaches Stephen Larkham, Dan McKellar, and Andy Friend as better options. He further expressed his preference for an Aussie coach, but also noted that he had certain issues with McKellar during his time in the capital. Hansen had praises for other coaches as well, including Larkham and Friend. Meanwhile, England’s Manu Tuilagi is set to miss the start of the Six Nations due to a groin injury sustained during Sale’s match against Saracens. Additionally, World Cup-winning coach Sir Clive Woodward outlined a plan to fix the RFU, which included expanding player selection for the national side, providing more resources to the women’s game, reforming the board based on rugby experience, and reintroducing promotion and relegation in the premiership. He also emphasized the need to support retired players and protect players and referees from online abuse.
