    Golden Boy Petaia playing like a dopey teenager packing a sook.

    Hate how gardner manages scrums, seriously the most out of form man in Aussie rugby atm.

    Maybe, but has Petaia successfully passed a single time to a winger? Nope, he goes himself and then flings the ball to nobody

    And that’s saying something. Nothing wrong with scrums, but with a minute to go does he really need to give a 30 second lecture?

    Well interesting game I think. Was pretty disappointed with both YCs, thought neither was one, and Damon Murphy who is calling them from TMO used to play for The Filth in Brisbane!!
    Seem to be struggling to get much going from both teams, but will see how second half goes.

    I feel like the more I have seen Petaia play, the more he might be better as a winger, sticking to a simpler game.

    Blaming him after White throws a howler is pretty disingenuous no matter how poorly he’s played before that.

    He is incapable of doing the basics and put someone in a better position

    According to the refs, there is plenty wrong with them, and we must discuss during the game always.

    75% Territory + 65% possession + 9-6 up in the penalties BUT down 6-13 on the scoreboard = poor onfield leadership & not just from the captain!

    Yeah. If Korobeite goes, let Petaia take that wing. Move Paisami out or give Kuridrani another crack.

    You can’t question his talent, his execution isn’t great, not everything needs to be a grandstand play.

    Sums up Wallabies where falling down - 68% possession yet 7 points down - think we had something similar with the 15-15 draw..

    He’s having a shocker - but he’s also copped two hospital passes and two shocking passes from White he’d be flat out catching in good conditions.

    So the Argentine rugby organisation seems to be the Wild West of laws and regulations.

    Pablo Matera the suspended captain in the change rooms leading the huddle at halftime and geeing the boys up. And the Pumas wearing a tribute to Maradona on their sleeves this week after being crucified by the Argentine media for not respecting his death and as a result those old tweets being dug up. Sounds to me like negotiating with terrorists.

    Losing a bit of credibility on the world stage. But playing good rugby so something obviously going right for them.

    His playing like someone who's not played a full season of rugby in a while.. All the talent, none of the game feel.. No doubt he might be one of our best.. But just needs game time.. Wing be good or pull him for Simone Hunter centres

    He is t very talented kid who has never learnt the basics, like catch and pass, straighten the attack and pin the defenders etc etc

    I remember what happened last time we wore these jumpers. I'm not fan of jumper of the week.
