The tenure of new Wallabies coach, Ewen McKenzie, hasn’t quite started in the way he and most Australian rugby fans would’ve hoped, with consecutive losses to the All Blacks and the Bledisloe Cup already lost for 2013, and Australia are already on the back foot in The Rugby Championship.

If there’s such a shock in all this, it’s probably that Australian rugby fans expected the turnaround in fortunes would be immediate, as if McKenzie would somehow click his fingers, or use some degree of Jedi mind trick, and that all the issues within the Australian playing ranks would just disappear.

Alas, that was never going to be the case.
