The problem with the Wallabies rugby team is obvious. Look at the picture above. Where is the discipline? At the start of a match you’d hope that the players had real pride representing their nation. To be in view of an entire nation. To wear the green and gold with purpose. 3 players have their socks down around their ankles. Trivial? Perhaps but these players don’t share discipline and that is driven by the head coach Michael Chelka. If I was a coach I would expect the players to show the uniform more respect and would see such sloppiness as an unacceptable standard. Let’s see how the NZ All Blacks present themselves as a team. Yes they look like a team. Performing the haka is all about precision and teamwork.
Perhaps we need look at the 1991 World Cup side
Two teams that won thanks to their discipline from head to toe.
Why Chelka hasn’t been dumped is beyond me. Look at how Eddie Jones transformed England after the 2015 World Cup. After watching Japan play Ireland a TV show interviewed players to discuss life under Eddie Jones as a Japanese representative. Two players said he was very strict when it came to alcohol and food. No booze and no fried foods. If he spotted a fried thing on their plate he’d give them the death stare
All the Wallabies look like now is a collection of prima donnas with self entitlement as a prerequisite. Perhaps the ARU should hire Bobby Knight to install discipline!?
