Who needs a coach?

By johnboy - 11 October 2013 2

On ESPN Scrum Clyde Rathbone is taking some time out from his philosophising to opine that not having a coach is not really a problem:

Clyde Rathbone has said the Brumbies players have “no issue” starting pre-season training without a head coach, insisting that the search for Jake White’s replacement is “irrelevant” to the squad’s preparation.

White stepped down from the head coach position with two years left on his contract, leaving Stephen Larkham and Laurie Fisher in charge.

”It’s a complete non-issue starting training without a coach, that doesn’t matter until it’s selection time and the start of pre-season is about getting physically and mentally right,” Rathbone told the Canberra Times. ”It doesn’t matter; you shouldn’t change anything from a mindset point of view. Pre-season is about preparation, [the coaching issue] is pretty irrelevant. Jake’s tenure was overwhelmingly positive and how he left shouldn’t tar everything else. All the building blocks are in place for us to move forward.”

Having seen not so long ago what a rabble they were with a weak coach it’s hard to believe the show can long stay on the road (or even decide which road to travel) with no coach at all.
