Campese calls for Deans' head

11:40 am on 16 November 2012

The former Wallabies winger David Campese says Robbie Deans should be sacked as the national coach for "destroying Australian rugby".

Campese has been highly critical of the lack of skill in the current team, who were humiliated 33-6 by France in the opening match of their northern hemisphere tour.

He told the English newspaper The Telegraph he was in two minds about wanting Australia to beat England at Twickenham this weekend, because victory might prolong Deans' career.

Campese says he's the worst thing that has ever happened to Australian rugby.
