Could probably argue back and forth on Garces but Ben Skeen... Really?? Anyone but him This guy literally got pretty much every major decision wrong and was terrible in between...
AUS v WAL was in the refs ear all bloody night, making something out of nothing with that Kerevi fend, but then seeing nothing to review when the Welsh try had Davies at least very suspect of being offside.... ( first half was almost 55 minutes just because of the constant TMO interference)
ENG v AUS try to offer the pass was not forward, at least the referee had the sense to put him in his place on that one....

The sunwolves got thrashed this year because they didn't have their national players or coaches available. And that was the strategy. The core of the national squad were off at training camps and playing non super rugby teams. It was a team of token offerings from the top league teams. Sunwolves were doomed to fail from the beginning though. No incentive from the top league corporate teams to release their best players. The corporate funding never came in as promised, Japan Rugby were not prepared to underwrite them considering everything. And South Africa pushed hard for financial guarantees which weren't forthcoming. A real shame though. Only have to look to the Jaguares to see how it could have been

Quite the opposite. He wasn't fired for being something, he was fired for being against something. Specifically comments against a specific group of people. Which happened to be against a specific inclusive clause in his contract and hence was fired for breach of contract.
What you wrote though is exactly what religious schools in Australia are.fighting for. The right to exclude LGBT teachers and students. Definitely against that......

He is being fired because of the specific content of the tweet related to gay people, after being warned for the same thing last year. The fact that he's ignored his employers attempts to contact him hasnt helped either. It is pretty clear in his contract but he chose to do it anyway. He has chosen his religious beliefs over rugby and thats fine. But noone can be surprised at the outcome.

Let's celebrate for sure, but why can't the date be changed? Used to be a different date anyway. What would be so wrong to change the 26th to a day of solidarity or similar and celebrate Australia Day on another day? We have rememberance day and Anzac Day to remember those who fought for our country and gave their lives. What do we have to recognise all the aborigines who lost theirs?
