I think you could make the case that the national team doesn't need a coach. The national coach doesn't actually coach like a Top14 club coach does, for the simple fact that he doesn't spend enough time with the players. He is a selector, he picks the team with the input from the selection comitee at FFR. Seriously he is a mere figurehead. The current setup doesn't give him any room for any coaching as such...*would. You picked the right conjugation for your sentence there. And btw I PM'ed you you dick, go answer me !!
FrenchFan, one problem doesn't disable another or make it irrelevant or powerless. Yes the FFR are fkn ape IQ-leveled gigolos who don't seem to give a flying, swimming, vomiting SHHIT about the very state of French Rugby or our team's success. It seems highly, highly political up there....
BUT: that doesn't mean all of a sudden the hordes of foreigners has nothing at all to do with the state of French Rugby. It hasn't affected our national team badly yet, but if this progression keeps up, just you watch. We'll start picking more and more guys for the great prestigious XV de France...from the BENCHES of the Top 14.
But right now right now, it's the FFR clearly and indisputably no matter the potential opposing arguments that is fkin up our chances at the top.
Also, I do love Urios, he looks so involved each match and to get his modest boys to beat freaking Toulon and Clermont and co., goddamn, headcoach has got to have a lot to do with that.
Pelous is teaching the little Bleus, so nothing like test level Rugby when you have to coach France and show up against the All-Blacks or Srpingboks...but he's definitely there in our subconscious.
