This is exactly why I'd let McNamara go. Although I've seen some improvement in this tournament, I think his choice to moonlight as an NRL assistant puts us in a difficult position in preparing for the next three years. It would have to be an exceptional candidate to even consider such arrangements, and due to the flaws you mention - McNamara has neither the ability or track record to justify it.
For me the question is not has Mc done a good job, it is could anyone else put right the 2 key flaws. We lose at the death and do not pick our best teams. On the first I genuinely believe that Wane and McDermott have shown that they know how to get teams over the line whereas McB has never done so, so has no experience to call on. Who can tell the players where and how to play the last 300 seconds? Not McB.
As to the right selections we have to have someone based in the Uk over the next 2 years to be watching the Hampshires and the Curries and the Savelios at first hand. There is so much even a part time coach could be doing to prepare, organise and assess.
