Iv got no facts or rumours its just something i'd like to see as under his regime is the closest we have come to a series win. Something like 5 points over the 3 games against the aussies. Where not even close to being competitive if you look at results now so for me we need him. Mcnamara seems to be a great manager but his coaching doesnt match up.

To be fair, the last couple of England games have been pretty impressive, even taking account the teams they were playing.

In defence, at least, England teams of the recent past have looked a lot worse against the same or lower standard of opposition. Ball retention wasn't great going forward (for either team), but England were working well as a unit when the French were attacking.

The difference is quite droll:
The optimist sees the doughnut,
The pessimist sees the hole.

I think McNamara is doing fine and does not really need any "help" from Noble.

Publicly, at least, both Noble and Tony Smith are always very positive about McNamara and the work he does with the England team.

I've enjoyed watching England under his reign.

In 3 years, Brian Noble's Lions beat Aus twice, lost to them narrowly once and got battered the rest. Our only home defeat to the Kiwis in 10 years was under his reign also.

The 3 close defeats you talk about was in the 2003 Ashes series, under David Waite.
