    The Wallabies Schedule for the remainder of 2013 is still packed with massive games.

    3 Bledisloe Cup matches, and a Grand Slam Tour.

    I hope the squad pick themselves up from the disappointment of Saturday night, but bottle that feeling of shite after losing again and use it to actually go out and win some f'ing trophies through the rest of the year.

    Get in a new coach to freshen things up and bring on a new golden age for Australian Rugby!

    Honestly feel that the extra game australia have against NZ is overkill, one home and one away in the RC feels like plenty against the blackness. Do any two countries play each other as much as they do in Rugby?

    As a Darkness fan, getting the first two against the Wobs seems like a good idea. If there is indeed a new coach it will probably be too early for the new patterns and players to be completely set.

    Mind you there will probably be a bit of a glow to the team.

    And if Robbie is still in charge no better time to add to the chaos.

    That game against Wales will be a cracker. Should be plenty of feeling in it and both sides will probably fancy themselves.

    The corresponding test last year was about the most dreadful display imaginable. Wallabies were at the end of a long season and were dis-interested and Wales were in some odd state. I wouldnt want to see a repeat of that.

    Win back the Bledisloe & knock over the Grand Slam.

    If the Wallabies can do both I'd be very happy with the season.

    I'll settle for either though.

    I just want the Bledisloe. As far as playing 2 games in NZ goes, this is a good a chance as any to get it done. Games at the Cake Tin (one of the more successful hunting grounds for the Wallabies if the word successful can be used!) and Forsyth Barr. If the home game was at Suncorp I'd be more confident but if they cant get the job done in the home game then we don't deserve it anyway. The best part? No Eden Park!

    EDIT: Win percentage at Westpac (33%) as opposed to Eden Park (16%)
    EDIT again: Interesting to note Suncorp win percentage is only 30% compared to Stadium Australia's 50%!
