Cape Town - Former Australia wing David Campese has a birthday wish for the Wallabies - a new coach.

Campese, who celebrates his 49th birthday today, took to Twitter to air his feelings about current Wallaby coach, Robbie Deans.

My birthday wish is for deans to leave and ewen to be coach of wallabies. Sometimes dreams come true, Campese wrote, before adding: Let's hope for a great end to the RWC. And that aussie rugby gets a coach who can teach passing the ball to the wings and run!!!

Campese was capped 101 times for Australia and scored 64 tries was voted Player of the Tournament at the 1991 Rugby World Cup.

    Subjective.... with him being a ex wing and all.

    And may we get a coach that is prepared to make the necessary changes, so that we could play a more attacking brand of rugby. Rugby that shows off skills of our gifted players like Lambie, Aplon, Hougaard etc. Not oxen running into the nearest tackler. And may the team be prepared to change.

      Most of us don't care how our boys play as long as we start winning more against the big teams. Winning can become a habit.

    i am with you on that on granville...dont like to see this rubbish forward only style pattern. so lets hope then that the next coach has that in mind. we ran the ball against the aussies can we blasted them off the park almost. that is the way how all south african teams must play the game. if old bryce was not there and we took all our chances we could have been in the final i reckon. we need to keep that playing style

      jacques.ackermann its interesting that you guys realise it now. Before this rwc the AB's were ridiculed by bok fans on this site for playing exactly that style of rugby you want to play now.The kick & chase is old and well read by all which diffuses it effectiveness. you may have noticed that all 3 nz coached teams in the semis played running style rugby with a little bit of kick. Very entertaining aye? and more rewarding if followed by a try.

    Campo, I your old age go big, man! Wish for a competent team who already knows how to pass and run! But, I think you should rather be realistic and wish for a win here and there - more likely to happen.

    He has always been controversial. He knows SA should still be in NZ today for the final.
