Ben, I really applaud what you said about Robbie Deans. I have never met him, but he seems to me to be a wonderful caring man, one who in his time as Wallaby Coach was always available to help all levels of the game, whether it be at schools or clubs or other rugby groups, and without any expectation of gratitude or thanks, he did it because of his love of the game, his respect for the game and the position he held as Wallaby Coach.

And his biggest crime was having to handle the petulance of a few of his younger players at the time, who I bet wish they had their time again, maybe they would have behaved differently when they realised what a good man they had in charge of them

Cheers Bill. Your assessment of Deansy is spot on. One of the greats.
