    Too many wallabies.
    Maybe we could just say we’re a few players short and see if the ABs bench would help us out with their jerseys inside out.

    Ok, that was slightly impressive from the ABs. so my take on the game first off Coles while maybe just a bit enthusiastic was a yellow card all day, and the reason you cannot argue if you give the Ref a reason to make a decision, don't be disappointed if he makes the one you don't like. I imagine he be getting a bollocking about dumb rugby. That AB scrum was pretty good tonight, I know I saw someone say on here the other night he didn't rate Laulala as a prop, suggest you have a peek at that test, he was quite reasonable. Ardie Savea amazes me you look at a break of play after 10 minutes he looks absolutely f***ed and struggling for breath, at 80 minutes he looks exactly the same after 80 minutes of energiser bunny type play. Cane was immense, and Read for an old man that is well past it, didn't look too bad. A Smith was bloody good that pass to SBW for his try was bang on target, Mounga and SBW were both pretty competent, ALB was almost MOTM for me f*** he went well, Reece and Bridge both looked like they deserved their spot and Barrett seemed to go pretty well. All in all I would say a little bit pleased with whole lot and I will think sleep will be good tonight. Wallabies had a couple that made mistakes, but apart from LSL and maybe Beale, I not sure I would change too much, or can think of better players to come in. might be time to keep the faith!

    Can't say how much I think the good night Kiwi is appropiate for how I feel DP, I know Aussie boys mightn't understand but good one!!

    Well what a difference a week makes, for me this just reminded me of the South Africa match. Some good moments in first half but far to many basic errors and aimless kicking (best kick of the night was from our hooker!).

    Its all about desire and effort. Last week we were brimming with it and this week it just didn't seem to be there at kick off and apart from 10 minutes in the first half we just didn't try which is damning.

    Also I know they want to show they are tough, but when its pissing with rain and colder than a nun's c**** can they just wear track suit tops and potentially bottoms to keep warm during the opening chat, obits, anthem and hakka (about 10 mins of standing still)! They must have been ice cold again by kick off.

    It’s weird I could have sworn last week the Wallabies were good at rugby, I will have to watch last weeks tape again so I know I wasn’t dreaming.

    Everything we did well last week we were schooled in this week. Scrum was dominated, Lineout was bad, we lost at the breakdown and we're generally outmuscled. Thats what makes the ABs so damn good, they diagnose and learn while we seem to fall into old habits. Utterly frustrating.

    Tonights the night Chieka has to hold his hands up and realise that LSL is not a 6, Hodge is too slow to be a winger and we have to have more at the breakdown than just our reserve hooker. They punished us.

    absolute agree especially about the breakdown, we lost at scrum time, lineout held its own and but our execution on attack was poor. in rugby as in life everything reverts to the mean, AB's returning to their level as did the WB's. still i think there is some glimmer of hope for the RWC.

    ok had some time to calm down.

    unfortunately i made 2 near fatal mistakes

    1. being a wallabies fan
    2. holding onto hope we coulda done it at eden

    fair play to the AB's, they definitely did what they set out to do. make a statement. keep the bled. get rwc prep back on track.

    cant get over the impression that the wobs were like this pregame

    The Modern Australian Hooker at Scrum time is fucked if the coaching staff think their main job is to cuddle a couple of Props and throw lines outs.

    And Kicking Simple Goals.
    Only if Australian Hookers could hook a ball as much as Lealiifano at goal kicking time.

    And My Awesome Rum Drinking Capabilities has noting on basic skills at line out time, Scrum time and Basic Fucken Rugby Skills..

    At least My "Biggsy on the Rum tonight" is Consistent.

    What absolute fucking garbage. You single out a couple of bench players for that performance? Because they play for the Waratahs? And wasn’t the 3 man selection panel the reason for last week’s thumping? I’d suggest that Cheika’s plan to rotate a few different players in was quashed by Johnson and Snoz. Not that I think that would have made any difference.

    Might be an idea to check out the game of ‘the saviour’ Lilo before you start throwing spears at a couple of reserves.

    Biggsy’s got a point though

    That scrum when we’re calling Joe Moody for angling in?

    The very next scrum, on a reset, you can see our TH (I think Tupou was on by that stage) castigates the Hooker for not getting in on him

    The whole Joe Marler magical-mystery thing is bollox. There’s no way a TH (and his hooker) should be bullied by the LH boring in. Poor technique maybe, but lazy technique really. Sloppy.

    Drop/roll the shoulder and let him fold in. Or (b) shear him off with the hooker in your arse and teach him a lesson. Basic stuff


    To clarify though, I really rate AAA. I’m not really knocking him. I think he’s got massive core strength and good technique and determination. The problem is that he got hoodwinked by Moody and that shouldn’t happen at this level. The whole team seemed a bit flustered and comatose.

    The Scrums won't be under that much pressure if the Hooker could hook the ball and get the ball the Fuck out to the Number 8
    In most cases the Refs are playing on at Scrum time if the Scrum is down at the Front but the Ball is out the back with the number 8.
    All Blacks tonight know Australia do NOT hook and the ball dose not pass the second row and the attacking team apply pressure and fuck them over.
    The Modern day Hooker in Australia is not taught how to hook a ball any more.. So I Was told on this forum years ago.
