    Those are some pretty exciting highlights. Loving the support play.

    Was under pressure against Japan, NZ and Fiji in the recent tournament on the Gold Coast. Probably the most disappointing aspect of the team overall.

    Actually, really hammered by the Japanese scrum.

    Not against NZ, tbf.

    The Baby Blacks scrum and lineout were silver medallists in that two horse race.

    The support play and angles those boys ran were fantastic. The senior Wallabies could learn a thing or two from that.

    Probably a good thing they were tested by Italy; it would have been easy to get complacent after the big win against NZ. Just need to tighten up the setpiece and some of the handles and they'll go a long way.

    How good did Noah look!

    Always been disappointed he didn't sign in QLD.

    Not many opportunities. Anyone outside the 12 didn’t get much ball. No fault of anyone, just the way the game went.

    I wasn't be disingenuous. Thought he looked great.

    Bloody hell, they do look pretty good. Harrison is too small, eh? So's Beauden Barrett. Not suggesting anything other than that size is not the only criterion when it comes to the half-backs.

    Barrett is 6'2.

    Harrison is 5'9.

    Hi Bobby Sands, totally agree, we needed someone to break the line and set up a try for our team to score before half time.
    Noah's line break and then cross kicking for the winger was something special. I was talking with one of the Ex- Wallabies who use to play fly-half and inside centre asking him would you do that,
    his reply was "firstly I wouldn't run in between the forwards pack and I couldn't chip like he did at full speed"
    "It changed the game for us to go into the second half- he's Class".
    And yes I'm disappointed we didn't get Noah back for our Mighty Reds:).
