    Waugh to do the unthinkable??

    It has been announced that Steve Waugh may be the next coach of South Africa before the end of the season, this is huge news consideration the rivalry the two countries share.

    the article has reported that Tom Moodie, Steve Waugh and Geoff Marsh are possible candidates. Graeme Smith is in favour of gaining an Australian coach in order to help them mentally for the future clashes against the worlds top ranked team.
    The article can be found at: http://www.supercricket.co.za/defaul...cricket/sateam

    I would like your thoughts on the idea.

    I seem to remember Steve Waugh saying that after cricket he didn't want to get involved in coaching, but that could have been someone else. Personally I don't think he will do it, but I have been wrong before.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    That seems a bit ridiculous to me, mostly due to the fact that if Waugh coached SA, he would be coaching against his old teamates.
    Might be trivial, but imagine how AWKWARD that would be!

    ^ I said that to my friend today after reading this post.
    It'd be so weird, him coaching the South African bowlers how to bowl to Ponting or Gilchrist. It'd just be... awkward lol.

    I don't know that the article has any real basis to this claim, other than a vague reference to "names being bandied around". And how come Graeme Smith presents as if he's the guy selecting the coach, all by himself?

    I'd be pretty surprised.

    It could be a case of mental disintergration from the inside.

    SA need a coach who can toughen them up mentally, an Australian would be ideal,but is unlikely to be a good idea in the eyes of the fans or any of the Australian people.

    At the moment, Steve is helping the Australian captain on tactics against India, not sure if they are working in the 2nd test.
