    Mitchell fired

    It had to happen, John Mitchell got the sack and Graham Henry got the job. Of course Henry used to coach the Principilty of Wales and the British and Irish Lions.

    Mitchell was probably better quiting after NZ got knocked out and saved everybody time as there probably not much chance of him keeping of the job even though IMO he should of.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    He wasn't sacked, just wasn't reappointed. Thanks for bringing back the Bledisloe Mitch from Australia. Shame Australia, we have it and you don't.

    New Zealand only need to win the first game next year and New Zealand retain it.

    * questions the logic in celebrating holding a crappy tin pot that only 2 nations compete for, oh wait, that's because you failed in the World Cup! :P *
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Without Jonny your team isnt as good. John Mitchell used to be Clive Woodwards righht hand man with England so had he stayed with England well he would of experienced a World Cup win.

    Well who is the best player in the NZ team? maybe Richie McCaw..I don't think NZ would have any problems replacing backline players but forwards, yes it would make a difference.

    Mitchell's contract runs out in March. So as you can imagine his time was already up.
