    Samoa in Sydney 2011, Scotland in Newcastle in 2012 are probaly our two biggest shock losses right?

    Perhaps Scotland in Sydney in 2017?

    I don't believe a word Greg Growden says. Any respectable journalist wouldn't publish this hearsay and conjecture.

    I think it is ancient history. Not anything in the recent past. Don't think any of the players are still playing.

    The game that kind of matches his hints had a this as part of its match review on GAGR:

    “I struggle to think of an occasion when I’ve seen a side with so much possession and so many attacking opportunities, against an opponent with no meaningful attack, lose with a miserly 8 points to show for their effort. The Wallabies even managed to actually fall over the try-line twice more, but on their backs. That’s innovation! If you planned to throw a match as part of a betting scandal, this would have been far too elaborate a route.”

    Any guesses???

    Away game.

    Spot fixing makes more sense - give away a penalty in front of the sticks in the first minute

    If it weren't for hearsay and conjecture Growden's articles wouldn't be any more than a by-line and a couple of stock photos.

    Anyone willing to tweet Growden and ask him to define 'several years ago'?

    yep, for our safety I reckon we lock this thread. No benefit to anyone making wild assumptions on the back of a Growden article. Let's let it lie until something more substantial comes out.
