I get the shits with the time wasting away at the end of a match my team is chasing (i.e. AUSvWAL on the weekend), but geez I love seeing a knock on up the other end of the field when there's only a couple of minutes to go and my team is defending a slim lead. Swings and roundabouts.
Yep. Only other option was Cooper which was memorable for the fact it made it crystal clear where the selectors viewed Quade on the pecking order. Hodge did start one Test at 10 I'm sure.
EDIT: Yep he did. Vs Japan in 2018.
You guys are forgetting that Chieka has already declared our back up 10's as Beale and Hodge. This is classic smoke and mirrors where we feign Toomua as our 10 moving forward and then in the knockout stages out comes Beale or Hodge and boom! England won't know what hit them! Genius! :D
Clarkie does my freaking head in. He's just a cliche robot and nothing more these days. It also seems like his hard drive is slowly corrupting and his cliche library is getting smaller each time he is rolled out and booted up.
Oof. Not as confident as I was. Can't quite put my finger on it but I'm not that inspired by that team. Hopefully my reaction is unjustified.
I've thought for a long while that Foley would be a lot better player if he had any competition whatsoever for his position. Well he's got it now so...
I reckon stop the clock for scrums and all shots at goal. Still give them a limited time to take the kick so they don't fluff around all day but it doesn't come off the game time.
But the biggest rule change for me is one that has been discussed a few times before, would be to change the red...
We have a longer turnaround and a better prep match. That being said though, I think Wales should be the favourites for this. the Welsh defence looks very tight and our fairly average attack will struggle to score points so when we get the odd freaky half break we will need to capitalise on it...
Yeah park the parochial crap please or at least keep it to the general Wallabies threads that make it easier to give a wide berth to. This is a match thread. I hope you lot are all just a bit tetchy before the RWC kicks off and you settle down a tad after tonight. This is really depressing...
Always struggle with who to support in this match up. I probably tend to favour NZ? Chomping at the bit to watch it but. Maybe I don't "support" either and just watch it for the cracking match I hope it will be? Probably a good way to go actually.
I think if I'm honest though, I don't...
Can someone who does the gym actually explain what Slips is doing in that one? Is that thing he is standing on some sort of band (elastic?) or a frame or something else entirely? And is the bar tethered at the right hand end to another weight? Also, why?
My wife and I are expecting our 3rd child in 2 to 3 weeks (possibly sooner, who really knows with this stuff). I've always fulfilled the "sit up with the new one to settle them" role as lets face it, in the early weeks when they only really need that and feeding, I'm no good for the other. So...
He still got capped in the Test against the Wallabies (in which he got injured) so he's still presumably an import player now. I imagine he will be able to see out his contract but possibly won't be able to re-sign after that? No idea what the deal is with capped overseas players now but so I'm...
Super Rugby draw for 2020 is out. Reds with a horror start to the season:
