Mains and Mitchell are/were both good coaches. I find it ridiculous how often Mitchell gets slagged off, considering he had one of the best records and worked better with the majority of the players than any other coach.

I hope Romania can get two wins, Scotland didn't look so well in the Six Nations and Portugal is pretty accesible. The NZ game will be holiday - last game in the group at 2pm.
And with Italy... who knows...?
Tbh our rugby fell down a lot, only the Bucharest team has put out some good matches in the European Shield.
I still say Mains was worse. The All Blacks were so bad under Mains that people were willing the French to beat them in '94. There were so many selection debacles & yet he somehow managed to hold onto the job heading into the '95 World Cup.

now - as now - we had two games in the IRB Nations Cup which we host: lost 7-61 to Emerging Springboks and won 14-8 to Italy A. The domestic league ain't so bad, but there is no big stadium for rugby. And not many young lads want to take up the hardships of a rugby career - they're all blinded with the glamour of famous footballers, of whom the media will never cease to talk.
Football dominates the stage too much, I'm getting fed up of it. I'd rather watch the African Nations Cup than the European Champions League which is so agressively marketed here.
So yes, there was a decline in rugby, but the Bucharest XV pulled up some wins against French sides, and this is a good sign. We'll see how we fare in this "minnow" tournament and then in the World Cup.
You can compare Romania in rugby with Zimbabwe in cricket, if you wish. We have a fame, we struggle to get up there again.
