Because we do actually win against teams below 10th.
We actually haven't done too well against Scotland or Wales when we last met. Our record against the top 10 is lose more than win at a gut feel.
Debatable how we'd go against Japan ATM. I'll give you 9th.
Dunno why you'd mention 20th...
We haven't done brilliantly against Scotland and Wales recently either.
We are probably 10th in truth.
Are we at a point where a win against any of the top 10 teams is an outlier? I can't be fucked figuring out what our win percentage against the top ten teams is since the last world...
Is this about rugby as a whole, or just rugby in Australia?
I believe a lot of the changes have been made to suit the home nations audiences, so from an entertainment point of view I believe they have the game they largely want.

Watching it live I can see Reece Hodge absolutely gives 110% out there - but I really am not sure it's the right 110% tbh. Quite a few options just don't seem to be right.
I just don't know what to...
He involved the crowd in a simple, unscripted way that everyone could understand and take part in with minimal chance of misunderstanding. Great way to unify the message until all of us learn some of our local languages. Kudos to that man.
I understand what the instructions have been, but disagree with how they are being interpreted because it's premise is incorrect.
The motion Perese was one used to maximise his chances of gaining posession of the ball, not deliberately knocking it on.
Almost every other facet of the game promotes contest for the ball. It's crazy that the intercept interpretation is so clearly at odds.
Imagine an automatic yellow card in a line out if the defending team spoil the throw but knock it on?
