Poor squad. No back up in one position where match day 23 numbers are mandated by World Rugby. No back up in halfback all for the name of having multiple back ups in the back row and back three.

Poor selection Cheika and also the omission of the best performing lock during the test season.

Douglas..

You better make us proud mate, your feeble offerings against NZ last week didn't exactly inspire hope.

Skelton is a protected species. I suppose Cheika's a bit of a greenie, can't bare to be the guy that makes the giant species extinct.

When you think logically then McMahon had to go (or G Smith, Gill or Hodgson). If Pocock and Hooper are going to start together in the big games then you need an openside to play against Fiji and Uruguay.

So what happens if Moore and/or TPN get injured in Game 1 but aren't out for the tournament??????


They are because a player needs to be brought in on medical grounds and the player taken out for medical reasons cannot be brought back in.

WTF at no Horwill. he was best performing lock all Rugby Championship.... And Douglas is in.

Cheika has some explaining to do.

I like it. I think the 3rd hooker & scrumhalf are a waste since they're never in your 23.

I can't wait to read everyone slagging off Douglas for taking Horwill's spot.

Seems like overkill taking 5 wingers. Maybe Speight will play 13 against Uruguay or something. Kuridrani and AAC (Adam Ashley-Cooper) can't start every game.
