    30 secs to go. Scrum in front of posts and no drop goal. Dumb

    Not sure about all the bagging of White. He didn't play well but was playing on one leg for most of the game. I thought Phipps was pretty poor for the few minutes he played; his passing was terrible!

    Before anyone has a crack at me, I'm generally not a fan of White and before the game I would've had Phipps starting. All I'm saying is that the criticism of White is probably a bit harsh.

    Are we getting anyone back from injury next week?

    First things first: Phipps starts next week. White was ordinary, and the box kick doesn't work unless you've got a couple of forwards shielding you. His passing was demonstrably inferior to Phipps'.

    ABs handling kept us in that mostly.

    Jaco was shit. Just utterly fucking shit.

    That's about it unless I see a replay.

    On a positive at least Peyper won't be reffing next week.

    Only thing though Scoey is that if you stay out there you leave yourself open to be judged.

    We have wasted a great opportunity. I don't think that happens again, I'm very sad

    A statement of the bleeding obvious. Pat McCabe is a very safe pair of hands at Super 15 level...thought Charles was an understated success
    It is what it is likes this.

    Big fan of McCabes toughness etc but if we had a genuine finisher he would have scored that try from the pass of charles where Patty got bundled into touch.

    The criticism of beale i believe is a little unfair I believe the first half saw the all black out enthuse us 1-15 and dont think it would have mattered who was at 10. He wasnt great but he wasnt terrible.

    The players that were dissapointing for mine were Carter in the first half carried to high and fardy lacked impact and gave away penalties. Simmons too easily shifted at breakdown. Whites box kicks.

    Good game to watch as a neutral.
    Drop kick attempt at the end would have been a good idea.. Bl AUS

    Pyper was fine fairly balanced bar one or two scrum collapses that should have gone against AUS.
    17 is going to be a tough nut to crack.

    I didnt think he was too bad tonite, the AB's might disagree with me and we probably would have lost if he hadnt binned 2 players - a lot of refs would not have carded for those offences with no general warning prior. I think he was kind to our scrum a couple of times too.

    An extremely disappointing night, been looking forward to this game since I was born. Let's just blame everything on the rain and move along.

    On the bright side, a bird shit just flew directly into Ashley Young's mouth. Puts things into perspective you know.

    Absolutely. I'm not saying White played well. Just not quite buying into all the criticism and equally don't understand the pissing into Phipps pocket.

    So we can try and out-kick the ABs? Their kick-chase was excellent tonight and we were lucky they dropped so much pill. I'm not sure Beale did anything Foley couldn't, but Beale did it with a higher error count. You could see he was disappointed when he came off.

    Pyper was fucked, did u see the lineout not straight call and the intentional feed to second row? he did well to ge rid of two cynical all black players but was fucked besides that
