I'm not so cocky about my margin containment call now, lads.
Even with a "mind games" selection followed by a possible late change, the whole vibe is out of whack.
Sorry. Went down a history vortex. In summary wins were rare for the first 70-80 odd years. We got increasingly more successful, peaking in the 90s and now seem to be back around the 70s era when we first earned the nickname the "Woeful Wallabies".
I hate to reiterate it but the record over the last three years of 17 wins in 41 tests @ 41% is pretty damn diabolical.
I find it strange that he hasn't lost the dressing room.I think the most telling thing is our Super sides actually improved this year and the Wallabies regressed further. Our best Wallaby performance was also only after a week of training together and our best half of football was when we threw the game plan out the window.

Have you thought that this might be even more frustrating for Eddie Eyebrows? If you were the national coach, would you tell the whole world what the exact state of health of your whole squad is? Or the reasons for selections, or non-selections?
Its so much worse than just playing with one playmaker.If one was to give Cheiks the benefit of the doubt you would suggest that both TT and Beale are unavailable due to injury or illness.
Foley becomes the next cab off the rank as the second kicking/playmaking option.
The selections reek of a desperate coaching staff tbh.
We were more competitive in the series than in any of the games that followed.Not for the series against England a few years back in Oz. With Kerevi at 12 we got slammed. He’s a much better player now and would give us some authority in mid field if at inside centre.
