Dear Steve Hansen, you won the big job. Yes, you lost one and drew one game. Stop crying!

Robbie Deans isn't crying - he is getting on with a group of players who aren't half as talented as what you have. Yes, the Aussies hate Kiwi Robbie but they are still number two.

Grow up and get on with keeping the All Blacks number one. Your comments suggest that you are already building an excuse for failure.

Maybe we need a new coach?

I used to be taught by DJ Graham, the All Black Captain, he would have never capitulated like you appear to have. He was a tough but fair bastard.

I suspect that I will wait a long time for another Kiwi Rugby World Cup victory. I guess I'm lucky to have seen two!
