Well done Australia. Never looked in doubt which was an odd feeling. Even with a pretty mediocre 3rd quarter, they did good.

Maybe, I trust the coaches know better than I do. But I'm curious about the time that Kaitu'u and Petaia have both been getting. Feel like their impact could definitely be felt earlier.

who does Petaia replace though..

12-14 have all been doing their job, could have maybe come on a bit earlier for hodge tonight though

Also very pleased to see, in limited minutes, that JOC (James O'Connor) still has it. Looked good.

Nice change in tempo from JOC (James O'Connor) and Tate
More Tate than JOC (James O'Connor) - JOC (James O'Connor) seemed much more panicky and uncertain than Sensei Quade Cooper - think he was lucky as that was a clear forward pass IMO

How good was that cut out pass by Kaitu'u and Kellaway was great. Samu Kerevi monstrous yet again, and I haven't been that excited about a maul defence since ever - great effort by Swain against that last rolling maul - Great team effort again!

Solid win. Attacking mauls pretty ropey, maul defence not great until Swain, O'Connor looked pretty rusty (expected, not judging), liked Hodge at 15, liked Leota. Kerevi, Valetini notables, Cooper very solid too. Should have got another try at the end there. Tackle completion about 95% again - nice areas!
Good trajectory.

Pumas lucky at the final score I reckon. Loved the work from the bench. Loved the work from our locks.

I’m just going to assume everyone reading this thread also watched the previous game, or at least know the result. Sincerest apologies if not.

Two quite poor throws straight off by Kaitu'u. Haven't seen anything yet from him to suggest he is a step up from our other mainly ordinary hookers.

If you judge Hooker just by the throw, then FF (Folau Fainga'a) in no improvement on that.

Arg a bit of possession in 2nd half but Wobs defended well enough to seal it.

Boffelli helped spraying 8 pts wide

Nic White in the thick of it:
