    Wales v Australia, Sunday 21st 4.30 am ADST.

    It seems odd to me that a defender can make contact with head, contact considered so egregious that he is sent from the field for the rest of the match, yet the ball carrier need not leave the field for an extensive HIA. Is it dangerous or not?

    Converting point scoring opportunities is the important bit, yes. Im not sure I agree that missed unopposed kicks at goal is the same as our attempts to score tries being successfully defended, but ok. Will the boks make big changes to they way they play? I doubt it.

    They did miss two conversions. Sliding doors, but you know you're gonna get between ~3 and ~10 chances at goal in your typical test. Whether or not they wind up being in different spots due to the butterfly effect, if you don't make them and the other side does, you stand a good chance of losing.

    They scored three tries to our one and lost. I doubt any significant style changes are afoot. Given we scored most of our points from penalty kicks within their own half, I'd suggest they will further prioritise playing the game at our end of the paddock.

    I'm not a fan of the maul at all, but if it cannot be legally defended then the wallabies have (largely) failed to capitalise on this for the last two decades (at least), as they have had numerous mauls in the oppo 22 (and elsewhere) shut-down legally, or at least with apparent legality. Seems...

    I thought the post match exchange between QC and SBW was really quite touching. You don't normally see those exchanges in that kind of forum and it beats the hell out of the usual platitudes. Otherwise I tune out most of the studio shit, since they are just recounting what I've witnessed with...

    commentary team homerism is just boring. i don't need stirring up. The Americans have it sorted. Network TV NFL broadcasts are called by by genuinely impartial guys (even recent players present this way - the best analyst around in any sport (IMO) at the moment is Tony Romo because he can...

    Stan has 2.2million subscribers. I don't think it's reasonable to count the $10 (or 15 or 19) in the incremental amount for stan sport.

    5 bucks seems light to me. That's only 60 bucks a year assuming people subscribe for the full year. Need an awful lot of subs to cover your nut and it doesnt leave much cash in the bank to chase other sports.

    wonder what Stan Sport will cost. Seems a done deal that it will be an add on.
