16. Coach of the Year 2016



  • Please nominate for the Krusty the Klown Award for Coach of the Year here.

    Rules in main forum.

    All arguments for and against encouraged and in fact required during nomination phase.

    Surname First Name Country Pros Cons
    HANSEN Steve NZL record speaks for itself; had his challenges; normal transmission despite losing near enough 1000 caps last year; "business as usual" Chicago hiccup; "business as usual"
    JONES Eddie Eng 100% record; started with a rabble "smug little prick"
    SCHMIDT Joeseph IRE First Irish win over ABs 5 losses; one good win does not a coach of the year make; poorish 6N; loss to SA


  • Hot competition here you'd have to say...

    Hansen, record speaks for itself, had his challenges, and bar the Chicago hiccup and an apparent fatigued EOYT, normal transmission despite losing near enough 1000 caps last year.

    Steddie Eddie, his 100.000000000000000000000000000% record says it all.

    Schmidt, plotted the first Irosh win over the ABs since ever...



  • Hmmm.

    Hansen. Well anyone could coach the Ab to 85% wins right?

    Eddie. Took a rabble to a pretty good record.

    I'd vote Schmidt - damn him (they were really good in Chicago).



  • Hansen has to be in the mix but what may count against him is 'business as usual'. Jones has had a great year and then Schmidt for the win over NZ. Also Coetzee for making such startling changes to the way the books play ☹



  • Hansen lost to Ireland, so that rules him out.

    Eddie Jones has a perfect year from the rabble that couldn't get out of their pool at their own RWC.

    Schmidt managed to get Ireland to beat the All Blacks.



  • Fuck Joseph Schmidt.

    5 losses:

    • France (France!)
    • England
    • South Africa twice
    • New Zealand

    Oh yeah ... fuck Joseph Schmidt



  • It can't be Schmidt given a poorish 6 Nations, not winning the SA series and not putting away the All Blacks twice.

    Next year could be his year though. Has to be Jones this year.

    Yeah, alright, Jones then. I just can't stand the smug little prick.

    Oh and what @booboo said. Fuck Schmidt.
    It's like deciding which of your front teeth you want root canal done on by @canefan with no anaesthetic.

    And a lot of the reason for that losses traces back to decisions he made i.e. Kaino at lock, resting Dagg etc.

    Hard to see Jones getting bowled here.

    I'll nominate Cheika just because with 21 days left this year I would enjoy seeing him be humiliated once more this calendar year.



  • Jones.
    13 and counting.

    Hansen 12 and 1.

    Also it is not just about where you got to, it is also where you came from.
