    I still prefer Bell over Slipper though. Actually I prefer Sio over both of them as I thought he was finding some great form before he left overseas.

    I think BR means Bell doesn't have enough runs on the board against top international teams yet. A couple of tests doesn't quite prove it yet in the scrummaging department. He's been solid some games and inconsistent others. In which case, I agree with BR. I'm not confident in Bell's...

    Yeah that tour where McKenzie shifted To'omua to 12 and Cooper at 10 we looked really slick. I was thinking this was the start of a long-term combination. He was really the only coach who was able to get the best out of Quade, which I think was a big contributor in his success.

    Even Beale at his best had the ball security of a child. Can we really handle more turnovers conceded. No thanks.

    Unfortunately I think your right. Rennie has a soft spot for Wright. I have a feeling Rennie will view Wright's last few games positively as they were pretty solid apart from that easy dropped kick off. I really hope Kellaway rises to the position and claims it.

    Leota was pretty good too and Rennie seems to like him too. I think it will surely come down to super rugby form between Holloway, Hanigan, Swinton, and Leota. Then T Hooper from the Brumbies I'd say is the dark horse. I feel like I'm missing another option too. I really like the depth at 6...

    Wallabies 2022 (towards 2023)

    His rise is quite remarkable when you think of Nawaqanitawase of last year. Two completely different players. His improvement in such a short amount of time is immense. Helps to be 6'4 and genetic's to put that much muscle on in a short period too. He doesn't need to play much better then he...

    His kicking has gotten a lot better in my opinion. I think it was just a poor game from him and not his usual standard. Surely he has claimed the number 2 spot after that performance. His running game is consistently good and i think that's more then what Gordon brings, or any other 9 in Aus at...

    Donaldson did not impress. He was okay. Like you said he had limited time. I don't think he was authorative, it looked like at one point Ikitau was yelling at him telling him what to do. I love how when a player doesn't mess up, they are instantly impressive, a sign of how low our standards...

    Again. He played very well when he started against NZ this year. It was one of the best attacking performances of the year.

    Nah it's easy to judge him. He's had 60 minutes of test footy and hasn't shown anything yet. He also had a decent amount of time in Aus A and was solid without being outstanding. I think it's pretty clear where he is at.

    Can someone remind me where BPA is at these days? Injured or overseas. Would be great to have him back.

    Foketi is a very good alternative to Kerevi. Depending on what happens next year with overseas eligibility then Simone as an option would be serviceable. But yeah, at 10 we are screwed.

    Actually it's 5 wingers in front of him. Koro, Nawaqa, Kellaway, Wright, and Petaia.

    I don't understand what anyone sees in Porecki, especially after the last few matches. I put my money on Lonegan continuing his form into next season and Latu having a redemption story.

    Good point. I think Kellaway will be the fullback or bench option. I hope he plays a full season at fullback for the Rebs.

    Haha fair call. Although I thought McReight was fairly average last night and was poor against Italy.

    That's like saying the missed line out throw in the first half worked because we won the game. Gordon's yellow worked, because we won the game.

    Good point. I like a fit and firing Tupou starting for this reason. Although AAA can be pretty good too.
