McMahon was not an automatic selection when he was last in Australia b4 pulling the pin for Japan. Maybe he is a gun but I still will reserve judgment still we see what he offers in wallaby collours. More so as at 6 and 8 have some decent options here.
Don’t get me wrong would love to see what he can offer but also my head tells me would be unfair to other players in the mix.
I don't really get this 'fairness' argument. This is a representative team, not the under 6 school team where the bloke who rocks up for training on time gets to play flyhalf.
We've won some games against, lets be honest, a fairly disappointing Boks outfit. They had a rubbish game plan both games and looked flat. In both games the backrowers showed some good things but also things to work on.
Rennie hasn't called McMahon back to make up training numbers.
If he believes he's the best option to take the Wallabies to the next level, just pick him. Kerevi and Cooper have been great. Lets not forget, before Cooper was actually picked, people on these forums were pulling their hair out that we would select a 33yr old has been. McMahon is probably the player out of these Japanese contingent who actually held the most value before going overseas.
