Focused too much on the All Blacks and took their eyes off the prize. That England isn't a powerhouse in Rugby already is a mystery. Most money, second biggest player base and convenient location to play top teams without major travel issues. No other nation has it so good.

Looks like he won’t be the Wallabies new coach then

I'd say they already are 'a' powerhouse (not 'the' though). NT aren't the be all and end all of sports.

One major difference between the NH & SH is that the poms and other NH nations love their club footy (same with other team sports) and don't want NT coaches & federation to dictate what they should do, who they should rest etc during the domestic/euro cups season. SR franchises on the other hand are essentially aru, saru and nzru's puppets/toys; can't do that in europe i.e. noone's gonna tell saracens, toulouse, man u, real & co (rugby, football, basket etc) who to rest & when or that they should have a 4-5 month long domestic season. Not gonna happen.

Euros love their 9-10 month long leagues and i don't think (and hope) it will change anytime soon.
