Powell is our best coach by a mile in the UK. He really should start as Coach now for the next World Cup.

Do you really think he’s better than a four time GF winning coach?

Bennet, for good reason is generally considered the best coach in the game. His record speaks for itself. Fans, including myself may not agree with all his decisions however I don’t see how this can be anything but a good thing.

Would sooner have McDermott, I think Powell really struggles when he gets to the business end of the season or a big game situation.






The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.
Percival-Lomax--Grace-Thompson-Makinson-Swift-Walmsley, not Eastmond...the future is coming.

The last time an English/British coach came so close to winning a world cup was in 1992 IIRC where we lost 10-6 in the final. For me Bennett deserves another shot and i'm happy he's stayed on as coach. We may not like some of his selections but it was those selections that got us as far as we did.

This is why I said on the previous page that past success should be a requirement. If he hasn't yet been able to show he can win or even play well in the biggest of games at club level then how's he going to do facing Australia in a WC Final or test match???

As for Bennett I wouldn't mind him continuing if he left his club role (which he won't do). If he could get that close whilst having the distraction of a club to coach imagine what he could've done if he dedicated himself to the role full time and spent quality time over here watching and in contact with the players more closely.
