Swanny’s World of Sport - Take no notice of vested interests

Tom Wood was not up to the job.

So England’s hopeless rugby union players have come out in support of beleagured head coach Stuart Lancaster.

Well they would, wouldn’t they? He kept picking players like Tom Wood even though they continually proved they were not up to the job.

I see rival international coaches have also offered public words of support for Lancaster.

Well they would wouldn’t they? With Lancaster and failures like Andy Farrell and Graham Rowntree in charge there is little chance that England will ever become a world power again.

Using football manager Roy Hodgson as a positive example of a non-knee jerk reaction is silly. Hodgson walked straight into a set of easy games, England’s rugby team go straight into a tough Six Nations event.
