    Watching pool game replays on Foxtel - got to comment gees the female rugby commentator is very good - good commentating voice and good commentary.

    Given focus on finding more mixed sex commentary teams to attract male and female fans reckon got a winner with that commentator

    Samoa under Gordon improved but having watched oz men’s team in the pool games just lacked the star quality to be anything more then a good mid table team.

    Not knocking oz performance as good but just saying to get to that next level just missing that star quality - re a perry Baker (who has pace but also natural ability to look for and find space)

    No surprise when u stack your team with forwards. Playing turner in mid field as opposed to a 9 at best leaves a massive hole in the back line defensively.

    Tactical poor in this game.

    If they played Turner at 9, how does that improve the midfield?

    Not sure if you were serious but closer to forwards not as much one and one. Etc

    Well, I got that wrong. Both teams outclassed against big sides.

    My point was who goes in the midfield in his place?

    You said it was a tactical error playing Turner in the midfield, and that he should have been 9.
    You completely ignore that our most dangerous player in the squad plays there, where does he go?

    Holland and two or three others would be there, if they weren’t injured, thats not a tactical error by the coach.

    Dunbar? Come on, be serious.

    Did really well on the first day. Against Samoa, I thought the ref was a bit easy on Samoa in the first half, could have been a YC or two when we were on attack.


    The turning point seemed to be when little Maurice fluffed that lineout throw. It was all downhill from there.

    Aus women:

    QF 21-0 Spain
    SF 12-26 Canada
    3rd/ 4th 7-24 USA

    A pivotal moment to be sure, as was the missed tackle by HH to let the first try in for Samoa.
