"I think I bring an unblinkered view, a view that having coached and analysed against a lot of Australian players during my time, but also having worked in the the Australian system for the last year and a half I think I have got pretty much a really good idea of where we need to go with the team and what we need to do to have sustainable success over the next period of time," he added.
