Should this Ford be parked?

OPINION: Six consecutive defeats, five of those in Tests, will pile the pressure on any coach.

Heyneke beat them all with that! :-)

I am totally for it to see Esterhuizen at 12 for the Springboks to see how he performs. He has improved a lot this year. The only problem that I have with him is that he seems to lose perception of where he is on the field at times, perhaps a type of a spatial awareness that is not always spot on.

Pollard had a good game, and it seems that his game management has improved a lot.

That kick was a beauty!

It looked worse than terrible at the end of last season. The worst it's ever looked!
But the talk I'm talking about was just before this Pom tour started. Baring all the above results and history in mind, people still thought the Poms would take this series 3-0.

Bok and Transvaal legend. You will be missed. R.I.P.

I agree with you; but getting rid of Ford and moving Farrel will only treat the symptoms of a team that is coached as if they are androids. Rugby is a game that is constantly evolving and Jones is an old school coach, the kind who inadvertently stifles individual creativity.

He can adress problems in the short run like he did with the Springboks in 2008, but in the long run he is a liability. Who do you replace him with though?

I suppose if you're good enough, you're young enough

I think Jake White should give EJ a peptalk and perhaps he will come right again. He has actually done a good job with the poms but he does not seem to get through to the team at the moment
