Australia v England: Match III, SCG, Sat 16th July 7.55pm AEST

Tonight, Wilson proved why Rennie picked and will pick Valetini over him every f*cking day of his life until final judgement

Wilson was pretty bad. Frost was surprisingly great, but strange that he played 80min, was clearly stuffed after 60minutes, should have brought on Leota sooner.

... that was a little frustrating at times, but boy you bunch are a dower lot. There needs to be some perspective on the injuries and depth Rennie and the team have been developing. Players like Frost really stood up tonight. We're no longer bemoaning our hookers not throwing it in straight. Yes, there were errors and some poor decision making at times, but truthfully England was far from clinical as well.

I thought frost was one of the best on ground.

I reckon they didn't want to put Leota into the row unless they had too.

No. If the referee awarded an attacking team the Wallabies win that game by a landslide. Instead they award a defending team who does nothing but in fridge a million times until they win a penalty

Frustrating game. We created more opportunities, looked more dangerous, and had the cattle to win. Just left too many points on the park. And the try against the run of play which required no line break from England killed us.
For the first time in ages I’m quietly confident our time is coming.

The strategy looked fine it was once again execution that let us down. If only I had a dollar for every "last pass" that we have screwed in the last decade.

Australian rugby love playing a running rugby skilled game, but maybe we simply don't have the skill to execute this game anymore.
This 100%

Too often we force an extra pass that simply isn't on & if we just take the tackle & try again on the next phase we'll likely get across the line!

It's as if they forget there's no tackle country....
