I believe O'Connor and Paisami both flew home injured around the time Ikitau linked up with the squad.
Any word on specifics? Paisami hasn't exactly had the best run of late and JOC (James O'Connor)'s never really been the same since his run of injuries including his more recent knee issues.

Any word on specifics? Paisami hasn't exactly had the best run of late and JOC (James O'Connor) (James O'Connor)'s never really been the same since his run of injuries including his more recent knee issues.
I believe Paisami was concussion, he had a few on a row so it makes sense to give him proper off season time off. O'Connor was a knee injury, no idea the severity.

I think this is the most detail I've seen in the press:
The Roar can reveal O’Connor flew home to Australia after suffering a knee-injury for the Barbarians recently.
...
Meanwhile, discarded Wallaby Len Ikitau has also been called into the Barbarians squad. It comes after injuries to O’Connor and fellow midfielder Hunter Paisami (concussion).

Dangunu playing 12
And doing very well. Not sure the quality of the opposition but Aussies look good. Daugunu, 2xLongeran and Ikitau are a class above. Hanigan, Neville and Uru too. I liked Canham off the bench too, excited for him to be offered 3 x Aus salary by a Japanese club I’ve never heard of.

Lambert’s try was gorgeous, fat man in space faster than spotting the Bunnings sausage sizzle.

Wilson and Wright have been less impressive. Wilson tries hard but soft in contact. Wright usual self. Electric but dumb shit. Dumb choice to run it back gave away an easy try and managed to spear tackle someone then avoid the yellow card which went to Daugunu. Bizarre.

Obviously comparing apples with oranges here but the BaaBaas had a much better attacking structure vs Quins than what I've seen from the Wallabies under Jones.

Interesting game with some impressive moments and good performances. Score even at 21 apiece with 18 minutes to go, and finished at 50 - 21 in favour of the Baa Baas.

The emphasis on attack with the ball, by both sides, was exciting and satisfying after the dross being served up by the Wallabies this year. There was good structure to the attack with excellent support play and a willingness by ball runners to look for the offload/pass. Mostly, the tackling was to a high standard as well, but the ball movement found a few holes in both the defensive lines, as you'd expect.

Goal kicking by Ryan Lonergan was faultless, including from the sideline. Kicking in general play by Lonergan, Debreczini and Ikitau was again mostly effective and a real step up from the Wallabies efforts in this regard.

I thought Pietsch had an outstanding game and was MOTM. Others to put in a good to excellent shift included Neville (his maul disruption was sorely missed at RWC), Uru who stamped himself as a real option for a lineout No 7 in the tests next year, and Ryan Lonergan who had a good sniping game to go with his fast service and goal kicking. Wright, Pietsch and Debreczini at the back under the high balls is a much better combination than anything the Wallabies have run out lately. Tom Wright is magic with ball in hand. It's when he goes to pass on to the next player that things can fall down, but as the commentators at the game observed, every action was centred around Wright.

I liked the Quins attitude and efforts in the game too.
