Nigel was excellent.  I think McCaw was sin-binned earlier in the competition, wasn't he?

Yes, against Argentina.  Improbable as it sounds he's only been binned three times in his entire international career, which tends to support runsoncake's observation.

Same win % as the previous two coaches. Trouble is, none of them are Clive Woodward.

Ah, the vertical scale on the image I saw made him look closer. So actually the best all round coach since Sir Clive. And he's been hounded out.

Hands up who wants the job?

Does that not tell you something about media pressure on England that perhaps isn't there, or at least, not so intense, on the other countries?

I thinks it's more a case of which games he lost rather than how many.

It's started for Eddie already with the pundits proclaiming the new messiah, and Austin Healey proclaiming that England need to be more arrogant!
