Some Aussie Barbarians highlight clips.
Saw your comment about "I hate kids" maybe you should grow up and stop acting like one! It's just a game and IMO very immature to rip into each of the athletes that have gone out there to try their best. Please share with us your great accolades of which I'm sure there are many as you don't seem to be someone that may have ever had an off day.

And seriously what is wrong with the coaching staff not putting on fresh legs in 17,18 and 19? When a game is not close, this is poor management.
3) Preparation and Numbers
Rugby in Australia has been in danger of becoming a private school enclave and this will, over the long-term, cause the numbers to remain similar and the lowest in the pecking order of all the footballs. This is despite the International opportunities are probably only second to Soccer. Somehow more diversity is required..
You don't necessarily need to have attended a GPS school to make the national team, there are kids that go through from state high schools as it is nowI wonder if it is time for the ARU and the State Unions to start running a universal 1st XV competition. Keep the GPS, AIC, whatever, as College Football style conferences, and build a competition that goes all the way to a 1st XV National Championship, get the State School teams to enter and play against the big boys. We need to build a proper grassroots school competition to bring out talent. I'm sure there's plenty of talent missed because they didnt go to a GPS school and didn't have the opportunity to play High Class rugby. The best thing about NZ Schools rugby is that a state school out of a struggling town can play against the most exclusive school in Wellington for the National Championship. That needs to be the focus. That rugby should be a sport for anyone and everyone, from professionals down to tradies.
