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.
Damien McKenzie maybe. Might've meant him.
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.
First of all, welcome!
I like this this as an early post, you should stick around
Any word on the team to face Ireland?
it'll be announced tomorrow morning but I reckon it would be the same. Starting 15 at least.
Junior Wallabies on Saturday night, Australia vs India on Sunday night and a public holiday on Monday (except WA and Qld you poor buggers).
Some great late night sport watching coming up this weekend!
^ Yep the Queen's birthday is in October up here appartently
The Queen must get sick of cellibrating some many birthdays each year. No wonder she looks so old.
Thanks for the welcome Bobby Sands
Ireland U20 team named. A small number of starting lineup changes:
Rob Russell comes into the starting XV in place of Iwan Hughes at fullback. The rest of the back line is unchanged.
Josh Hodnett moves from 7 to 8 in place of Azur Allison who is going through the return to play protocols. Ronan Watters comes in at open-side. David McCann remains at 6 and the front five remains the same.
