Deans gone, McKenzie to replace him tomorrow.
The Rebels also getting a new coach in Tony McGahan. It's all happening!
Super Rugby returns to normal this weekend. Last round before the finals.
Avatar now by choice. 5-0 in the Ashes and all.
Vunipola Fair enough. I thought he may have someone showing a bit of form in club rugby running around for Eastwood or Warringah or something.

Think he'll follow Sonny Bill & Brad Thorn into the ABs in due course. Definitely has the kicking game for union.
Mildly odd timing tho, what with the RL WC in a few months.
Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion
- As featured in The Independent.
"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
Didn't he lose the Kiwi captaincy? He's disillusioned with the way his career is going.
Emphatic win by NZ last night. Cruden was superb, and I thought Luatua was phenomenal in his first start. Error-ridden performance by the Wallabies - Mogg in particular had a shocker.
Time to rename the Wallabies, the Rubbish. Absolute garbage.
A bit concerned this week with Carter, Cruden, Barrett all out....
It is a test of our depth! But I rate both Taylor and Slade (despite the latter's injury-proneness), so I think we should be OK.
Ranfurly Shield, mother****ers!
Australian backline interview question
1. Are you willing, at every conceivable opportunity, to send a meaningless midfield kick straight down the throat of the opposition?
If answer is "yes", proceed to 2
If answer is "no", who are you and what the **** are you doing here?
Australia played well for a while, but boy what's happened to their attack since the Lions tour? Obviously with McKenzie taking over, you'd expect a bit of rustiness but not as much as has been shown across these past two Tests.
Will be very interesting to see how they go against the Springboks in a couple of weeks. Any Aussie fans already regretting McKenzie's appointment over Jake White?
