Wallaby Legend Savages State Of Australian Rugby & Reveals His Help Was Refused
Michael Lynagh has savaged the Wallabies’ “schoolboy” skills and revealed how his offers to help have fallen on deaf ears.
Michael Cheika’s men were humiliated by the All Blacks in their Rugby Championship opener at Syndey’s ANZ Stadium, losing 54-34.
Lynagh pulled no punches following the game, revealing he offered his expertise to the ARU, but was refused.
“I can’t over-estimate how angry I am at seeing an Australian team who have skills that are non-existent,” Lynagh said.
“Passing and catching and making tackles and trusting the bloke beside you are pretty basic even at schoolboy level.
“Australia had a month together to try and create stuff … and they come up with that in the first half. Very, very disappointing.”
Have offered. But never asked to do so.
