Fellas, what’s our predictions for wallabies vs Fiji. This is a massive game, we win this we’re sure to go to quarters or we have to battle it with wales. Very nervous to say the least.

Wallabies by 7 (32-25) This Fijian side has only had one good result and are very over-hyped, a lot of people predicted them to beat Wales but that didn't happen, IF they beat us it'll be down to our continued in-consistency and not having our 2 best players/captain and halfback, we're a better team regardless

Very important … nightmare scenario for aus rugby if we lose to Fiji and Wales

No Skelton at the captains run, Phillip wore #19 & Arnold #5 today.

Dan Palmer said the scans reported only a 'minor scan' & Skelton remains a chance to play though.

Yeh as much as Skelton is a good player, I don’t think he’s the reason we win or lose this game. So if the blokes calf is so dodgy he’s been given until kickoff to prove fitness, don’t bother risking it.

There has been a lot of correlation between calf injury and Achilles problems in recent years across many sports. Not worth the risk for someone his size.

Just rewatching Fiji vs wales game, looks like a scrappy/messy game, if we can keep structure we should be able to outskill and force penalties from them. Important we don’t play down to them.

Yep Fiji leaked more points than Portugal, Italy & Georgia did against Wales, there’s a lot of hype about them
