Good luck to him. Glad he's staying in the game rather than going over to the dark side. Roosters and the NRL should be a good further education for him. Would like to see him keep the England post on a part time basis- he'll be close to half the likely team and there isn't exactly a packed program of international games on the horizon at the moment. Maybe if the International Board sort out a sensible program of games we would need a full time coach but until then.....

Agreed. He's going to the Champion club, and if he can also act as a liaison person for England with the NRL-based players, that would be very useful.

Merged the '...to Bath' and '...'not off to Bath' threads to avoid further confusion.

How about McNamara prefers S(howe)RS to Bath's :)

Good luck to him. Trent Robinson seems to have a touch of magic as he showed when he took over the shambles left by Walters in France and latterly in Australia

If some of that rubs off and if retains some interest in the England set up then it could be beneficial.

It's what a lot of us on here predicted and a good outcome in my opinion.

The title of this thread is a little harsh. I am comfortable with McNamara staying on. They say you are only as good as your last performance and England were very very good.

So its now 43 years since our last success as a National team and judging by this terrible decision we now seem to be aiming to get further away than ever and are run, and the game populated by, timid, un-critical, jobs for the boys, sheep...

 

I wish I could get a spread bet on our next success because with the way things are going we are not going to have too much trouble getting to 100 years of failure...

 

I have now given up all hope of seeing a successful English/British national RL side in my lifetime...

 

At least Italy , the Exiles and Mr Chase will be happy...

Absolutely correct, and finishing 3rd is not success.

This was the best England/GB team in my lifetime playing a World Cup on home soil with talent all across the park, the team should've done better end of. 

 

It doesn't matter how exciting the NZ game was, losing is losing.

Chuckles is not letting his personal disappointment shine through... no not at all....professional to the end....


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!
