An Australian captain, confronting a former Wallaby, in a post match interview.

This is disturbing for a number of reasons, although, one wonders how insecure a bloke has to be, to lunge for the jugular in a post-match interview.

Although, if you were watching the (delayed) Channel 9 coverage of the Perth test match, you wouldn’t have seen it. Apparently, the Programming team determine a 1970’s Clint Eastwood movie, far more entertaining than any post-match interviews.

I’ve been involved in sport for the better part of four decades and I have NEVER seen an Australian rugby captain so precocious or an official broadcaster so apathetic.

Which makes me wonder…

How bad do things really have to get before the power brokers at Australian rugby make systemic changes…?
