Could have phoned up up and told him he was rubbish, or asked him some searching questions on England's attacking play. 5Live would have loved some conflict so if there was none then most likely people didn't phone up to grill him.
Saw a clip of him on TV this morning on the subject of Wayne Smith joining his coaching team.
He muttered his usual management speak but in effect said that the loss of Andy Farrell's services wasn't that significant as he (Lanacaster) set the attacking style and policy (hands up if you knew there was one!)and Farrell just did the detail work. Which was presumably telling his son to kick the ball away at every opportunity.
I would have rung had I had time. I have before. As it was I sent a text - which they didn't read out. Mind you it wasn't as gushingly positive as those they did read.
And the interviewer doesn't have to conduct a debrief - but a few questions about the poverty of attacking play rather than eulogising the great wins in Edinburgh and Rome might have been more insightful.
I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
