Sir Clive Woodward advises RFU to select England coach who knows what he’s doing

November 20, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

England’s World Cup winning coach Sir Clive Woodward has suggested that the RFU might select a more suitable replacement for Martin Johnson by considering individuals who know what coaching is actually about.

Former captain Johnson was appointed in 2007 despite not having coached in any way before – a factor which may well have contributed to England’s dismal showing in this year’s tournament in New Zealand.

Woodward argued, “This time they should make sure someone’s aware of what’s going on and that someone makes a decision or two during the selection procedure.

“The RFU might also want to think about appointing someone to a coaching position who has coached before or knows something about it.

“Being English probably isn’t quite enough by itself.

“Just a suggestion.”
