First the RFU appoints Stuart Lancaster as its coach until the next rugby world cup in 2015 and now the FA appoints Roy Hodgson until 2016 (so he will oversee one world cup in 2014).
Stuart Lancaster should have been given a one year contract for 2012 which incorporated the South African tour next month and the southern hemisphere games later in the year.
Roy Hodgson has had a limited experience with top flight players. Managing Sweden, Switzerland and the UAE is one thing as is looking after Fulham and WBA but not Liverpool (okay he did well at Inter). But not interviewing Harry Redknapp for the job was a major oversight.
How can these two organisations be so out of touch with their own sports??
Time will tell......
