I cant believe the state of this union. A decade ago they were one of the best clubs in world rugby. Now, they have to scramble to get in Mitchell all the way from the US, and adminstration problems have come to light.
To be quite honest, the Bulls should have been the team to be removed from the super rugby tournament. You ended well below the Kings, whom showed great potential during this year's comp.
I think it's only your wealth that stopped you from being booted out.
Lucky plucky Bulls
Hhmmmm, and I believe this nonsense. I believe that John was given a list of names of current coaches at the Blue Bulls and that he had to choose his assistants from said list. I agree that Xander Janse van Rensburg should be fired but so should Pine Pienaar also be shown the door. Barend van Graan and all board members should do the honorable thing and step down or else be fired and replaced with proper businessmen. All these changes is only to protect themselves as they now can claim "we have seen Nollis cannot coach and thus had him replaced".
I don’t doubt John Mitchell knowledge of the modern game. However, I have a huge question mark of John Michell’s ability to cultivate excellence and fit into a culture. He must surround himself with the right people and leaders.Michell was right when he said the blame game must stop because it maintains a victim mentality at the Bulls.
He makes rugby decisions not sentimental ones. I have always rated him as a coach just look what he did with the Eagles. There those in SA rugby like de Klerk that would like to see Mitchell leave SA. He is a respected coach and has done well. Change is needed this the right call. Those who say the bulls must get axed just hate the bulls.
John is a tough customer, not sure if the planks running/ruining Bulls rugby are gonna be too happy with their decision to hire him.
Ek is baie bly nollis marais is weg. Beste besluit ooit om john mitchell aan te stel. Hy sal die bulle weer regruk net pine pienaar moet nog gefire word. Dan sal dit baie goed gaan Baie happy oor Pote Human wat ook daar is. Sterkte Jihn. Baie harde werk le voor. Ek weet jy sal weer die bulle se trots herstel.
Look at the ears on it!!!! Gotta be a special coach looking like that. Good luck Mitch
