"John O'Neill showed that great administration produces great
on-field performance. His ability to cut through a mass of issues
and make the right call has proved significant in the emergence and
success of two football codes in Australia. John has been a great
friend and mentor for me during my time in rugby and beyond. The
Wallabies would not have won the 1999 Rugby World Cup without John
O'Neill at the helm." --John Eales
