Robbie Deans should be Wallabies rugby coach by the end of the week...
A New Zealander, Robbie Deans should be Australian Wallabies rugby coach by the end of the week...
A New Zealander, Robbie Deans, from my home town of Christchurch in Canterbury, is now the favoured candidate to takeover as coach of the Australian Wallabies Rugby team, after being turned down by the NZRU.
Most American readers probably don't realise that a New Zealander coached the American Eagles Rugby team at the recent Rugby World Cup.
Rugby Union may not be that well known by North American readers, but it is more of a a world sport than American football which is primarily a North American sport like baseball. Only basketball can be considered a world sport.
So let me be the first to predict that Robbie Deans will be Wallabies coach by the end of the week; and with the losing New Zealand All Blacks coach, Graham Henry, inexplicably reappointed for another two years, will I have to change my allegiance to Australia to ensure I support a winning team?
