Wallabies 2023

Just full on with the complete assumptions again
Ummmm….thats why I started with ‘I think…’

And they aren’t ’complete’ assumptions - more like half-baked
I would say BS but that's me. I'd like to see if there's anything beyond hearsay on this
BS…that would be the statements EJ (Eddie Jones) has made about certain players earning their selection and not being given them :D

Gordon on his kicking
“I love goalkicking,” he said. “It’s just a bonus you get to do on top of playing rugby.

“I’ve always done it growing up as a kid and obviously being behind Hodgey [Reece Hodge] in the goalkicking takes at the Rebels, but still practice heaps and obviously can’t wait to be the kicker out there.”

Leg and hip issues meant that Gordon couldn’t practice his kicking for the bulk of this year’s Super Rugby season, but it comes as no surprise that the blonde-haired playmaker enjoys the big moment.
The kid will come good.

Darwin trip looks so cool. The boys' response has been very positive. I also really like the new media guy, Julius, for the Wallabies, he's been doing the Waratahs for the last year too, @__juey is his handle, has some pretty good content. Bringing some much needed younger vibes to RA. PAC can only do so much, we need more shows/content aimed at the online generation.

This really is a fantastically put together video. For anyone familiar, it's extremely similar to McLaren F1's Unboxed series on youtube

How do you do, fellow kids? Should probably start with replacing fundamentally out of touch boomer coach and bringing back the action lads Beale, Coops & Bieber for capturing the good 'vibes' essence & overall wellness coaches bhahaha, weekly Maccas trips at 4am, curfew only to be established on test nights, would at least produce some relevant content for the kids of 2011 eh..

We have to get back to the Australian way, running rugby. Randwick did it with much success in the 80s and 90s. I’d like to see us have a blanket rule… unless we are in our quarter, don’t bloody kick the thing. I think in the game against Portugal, our backline should be:
9: Tate
10: Donaldson
11: Fines
12: Perese
13: Mark N (Nawaqanitawase)
14: Kellaway
15: Marika

Plenty of pace, ball in hand up tempo run first mentality. Sink or swim, whoever thrives (and I expect most to do well) starts in our quarter final. I suspect we’ll play England and we’ll run them off the park.

Fuck me mate, that's a spot on impression of an octogenarian who's only watched his local club and the bledisloe since 2003. Magnificent trolling.

I think the club is finally getting over losing the licensed club.
Knowing the club like I do, I invite you to explain your comment about Hoiles and his coaching credibility, noting that they are two wins away from their first Shute Shield title since 2004.
Your surely on the wrong thread. Look up 'Club' thread.
