Your question is tongue-in-cheek, surely?
The RFU could learn from a couple of two-year-olds playing in a sandpit.

Yes:
1. how to plan to peak at the right time (RWC 'at home' in France);
2. How to organise professional rugby union; and
3. How to replace national coaches.

‘To replace national coach’ - yes, maybe.
As an exemplar of ‘how’ to replace a national coach - not exactly a great track record.
Speak softly, but carry a big stick.

I read the article when it came out. My conclusion was that Les Blues had learned from previous mistakes - only time will tell.
