You aren't giving Italy enough credit. They strung together phase after phase without making an error. That pressure will always tell. Aus would have knocked on before they could string that many phases together near the line.I disagree i think they went well def then but its hard when jackson is willing them on to score a try

All im saying is we defended for a good 5mins on our line including a heap of scrums which was a shambles where it could have and should have ended up wirh us getting the penalty.Seriously, this blaming the ref for our incompetent play is getting to be like a broken record.
Well at least this validates the fact that your backs will score and look good when you have a good platform up front. Hopefully if the forwards are not up to scratch people won't call for backline players' heads to roll.Backline far too classy for Italy. Forwards better than Italy's but weren't overly dominant. Think Argentina away match.

If we win comfortably against this lowly ranked team, it means we're due for an embarrassing loss next week against the *gulp* Irish...
There is still a huge amount of provincialism going on in these threads - mostly it appears from Brumbies supporters!
Hate for Genia (apparently White is the second coming).
Hate for Slipper who had a good game (just because he caught the ball on the wing).
Hate for Cooper who was close to MOM.
Hate for Simmons despite also having a good game.
When is it going to end people? Can't we even support good performances anymore?
