    I'm starting to get the feeling you don't like Michael Cheika

    My tip is that Izack Rodda will have a big game and finish the equal of or better than his opposition locks. I think the Aussie scrum could get on top of the Irish. I hope the Pooper is successful, though not very confident. I can't see much between the two lineouts, except perhaps for wayward throwing being a factor with the Wallabies.

    I think the backline will be found out and will allow too many tries. I can see big problems outside Kerevi if he defends in the 12 spot, which will put enormous pressure on Koriobete. That is where I think the Irish will run the ball when they don't kick it. I am assuming that Pocock and Hooper will be defending the 10 channel all night.

    It looks like the forwards are likely to hold their own, but we could get dished up in the backs. That's ok if it sees some changes for the remaining two tests.

    I reckon if we can win up front we can win period.
