Brumbies forwards pack

Recently a lot of stick aimed at our 2 previous coaches from the southern hemisphere about the style of rugby. Our pack always went backwards under fisher especially.

After watching the brumbies this morning who fisher is the forwards coach for, they scored 3 out of 3 tries from rollling mauls and have been very dominant up front since he joined. Why couldn't he do that at glos?

Laurie Fisher is a superb forwards coach, some of the Munster players including Paul O'Connell reckon he was one of the best coaches they've ever played under. He isn't however a very good man manager, which is crucial if you're head coach.

Like Stuart Lancaster, he's a great coach to have in your coaching group, but not the man to be leading it.

I guess it's a bit like always getting the wrong brother. We employ a world class forwards coach and offer him the wrong job !
