On a mission from God?

Jake White & Eddie Jones
Following the Springboks' disastrous 2010 Tri-Nations campaign it appears that Jake & Elwood (White & Jones) are ready to put the band back together at short notice in an effort to salvage the 2011 World Cup campaign.

It's clear that the Springboks have problems which can't all be explained away by the new law interpretations. The last time I checked it wasn't illegal to tackle for instance. It appears, however, that the collective will of the players is no longer sufficient to hide the shortcomings of their head coach.

So what's to be done? Apparently Jake and his band are ready to start next week if required, but I'd advise the SARU against a knee-jerk reaction. P de V is a great bloke, top coach and is in no way insane. Do us all a favour and keep him in place - at least for the next 12 months.
