    thanks steve for taking rugby to the next level and therefore improving rugby globally and thats the pill you risk swallowing 1 team innovates others will follow and thats exactly what happened england in that performance perfected what the all blacks were doing. And its funny cos eddie jones was the innovator with gregan larkham and co with the endless phases. steve with the speed game and skill all round the roster. Eddie picks up that and perfects it. Well Done STEVE!!! You took rugby and left it better than what it was when you picked it up have a well deserved rest.

    This is what you get for sacking the best fullback in the world in Israel Folau. Australian Rugby CEO, shameless women Raylene Castle should be kicked out. Well played England.

    As a England fan, we are quite used to the compassion and respect that most ozzie teams give to the english when they win. NOT!!!!!!!!

    I think I hate Australia slightly more than I do England...
    Both arrogant nations that I can't really stand.

    Cheika was full of himself before the tournament saying he will resign if he doesn't win the rwc and now he is asking for compassion.

    Australian rugby is in serious trouble due to continued poor management and coaching.

    Cheika always blames the refs when they loose. He is sour they got beaten by a better team. Go put a shrimp on the barbie mate!

    I respect the depth of mourning but its a little self indulgent too.
    Just balance it up and say the better team won on the day.

    As an Englishman I admit I’m a hooper
    Fan . Folau would have helped .
    I just think Eddie Jones is a better coach than cheika.
    This England team is the strongest I’ve witnessed.

    Two teams play each other, barring a draw, one loses by definition, yet it's seen like the end of the world by the media. There's no shame in losing to the current England team for any Rugby team in the world, it's not like Australia were favorites expected to win. The guys played hard and gave it everything, leave it a that, if they'd started kicking the ball around and given England more possession how might that have worked out given they were soundly beaten score wise with England only having something like 36% of the possession? When England had the ball they generally got points of some sort. Having said that I'm not a fan of how Cheika conducts himself and some of the arrogance that rubs off on certain team members, when you make such harsh and unkind comments about your opponents and their coaches, regardless of if it's just some psychological tactic, you set yourself up to eat some humble pie when they beat you. If you remain respectful, it's much easier to lose as you only lost the game and not your self respect as well.

    This is what you get when you unjustly sack Folau. If Australia want to improve again, they shouldn't just get rid of Cheika but also rapidly remove Raelene Castle and her unpleasant influence.

    It's time to clear the board,management & deck of these underachievers who have led Australian Rugby to successive ho hum performances. I think most Rugby league teams in the NRL would have given a better performance.

    Fair play to these two, losing is what brings out the best modesty in people. But qn for Hooper at 5:20 is completely ridiculous and cr*p, great answer by him.

      True I feel like he may leave captaincy because of those stupid journos and amount of media crap he has to deal with constantly. It might be so boring.

    People's feelings don't sell newspapers you total doughnut! This was yet another problem with Cheika, he never got the hang of press, which, like it or not is a part and a big part of the modern game

  • Mike Roberts
    Mike Roberts 29 days ago

    That's the problem, it's not "our" style, it's yours and yours only, too stubborn to play to your team's strengths or to the opposition's weakness or anything else. Cheikas way or no way. Pathetic, his arrogance and stubbornness has cost a great side a semi final

    Not kicking is called Rugby League. All great teams go for field position via kicking.

    Maybe if you watched a few videos of your oppos you might have picked up a little about how they play attacking rugby. You both are idiots, the only diff is hooper is an idiot who plays rugby without thinking and Cheika knows nothing about modern rugby. The entire board at Rugby Australia also needs to go. What a debacle!

  • Sim J

    If you're a coach you take full responsibility for the outcomes. One thing Cheika has never done as coach of the Wallabies, it's always somebody else's fault, this and that, heaps of excuses. Never took full accountability and finally he's out of there.

    Chieka had the gift of the gab! I knew from the start he was no good for OZ rugby. He took the wallabies back 10 yrs instead of forwards.When a coach blames everyone else but himself is not good.Comon Aussies get your shit together,!All Blacks supporter .....

    the hacks question when asking about his position going forward, was absolutely lowest common denominator, gutter press, facile, banale, vile digging in the dirt!!! "shame on you"! is that the best question you could come up with???? grow up because you will lose your job soon.......why.?? "because you ask such shit questions"!

  • Gman

    Kicking for position and then attacking is a much way to play, running at all costs doesn’t work well unless you’re highly disciplined like the ABs for example, which the current Aussie team isn’t good enough to do.

    I am a Pom and I love the bloody Aussies but certain people shouldnt dish it out if you cant take it. However I never underestimate Aussies, and think that the Kiwis will be more than a match for us Poms in the next one, I hope not, but believe they will. Either way there is two great semis coming.

    Sounds like sa previous coaches "im not going to change, im not going to select the best guy's, its my way or no way", the outcome will be "you will be gutted" all work hard etc theres no performance so you wasn't good enough....
