I'm sure thats the case but Twickenham sits another 35 000 compared to Mendoza and tickets are probably a lot dearer (starting around 40 pounds) than in Argentina (unsure of cost).
You can put down all the other wallabies coaches stats from pro era and compare them to Cheika's but its not fair if not seen also from this perspective. No other wallabies coach has had to pick from such consistent losers as our current one. You think that's not going to have an affect?
Australia duo Kurtley Beale and Adam Ashley-Cooper have been stood down for selection for the Wallabies' clash with England this weekend for bringing three women back to their hotel room in Cardiff.
The Australian reports that the pair have been disciplined for a breach of team protocol, by inviting women back to their Cardiff hotel room after Wales' 9-6 win over Australia earlier this month.
The Wallabies have a strict rule that no guests are allowed back to players' hotel rooms and, while it is understood the women were Ashley-Cooper's sister-in-law and two friends, senior players deemed it an unacceptable breach.
According to a team spokesman, the women joined the two players in their room but left at 10.30pm on the night the Wallabies lost 9-6 to Wales at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.
According to the report, Australia coach Michael Cheika only found out about the incident on Monday - which explains why Ashley-Cooper made his international comeback following two years away from Test rugby against Italy last weekend.
Yeah, at least we know the reason they weren’t picked though. There would have been an uproar if he’d picked either of them and then the breach came out. Not a major breach by the sounds of it but would have been better before the Italy game!Sigh. Wouldn't it be nice if we could get out of our own way occasionally.
Updated bench Replacements: 16 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 17 Jermaine Ainsley, 18 Allan Ala'alatoa, 19 Rob Simmons, 20 Ned Hanigan, 21 Nick Phipps, 22 Sefa Naivalu, 23 Marika Koroibete
Well it kind of does explain Foley at 12 if he’d already decided that To'omua was going to be 10. Kerevi/Sefa is probably the only other remotely viable center combo left. At least this lot have had a game together.Doesn't explain tupou, doesn't explain Foley at 12 and doesn't explain latu starting or any of the other merry go round selections we've been seeing

Banks must not be ticking the boxes on the training pitch. Unless it’s a deliberate ploy to get two strike wingers out there at the finish.
