    Can the Wallabies win this one? Or will the All Blacks sweep the series?

    Dagg goes in for an try early, this could be a long night for the Wallabies.

    Wallabies stringing some good phases together but just can't finish out wide.

    What they would give for a David Campese right now or even a Rob Egerton.

    The Wallabies half back needs to learn how to feed a scrum.

    Stephen Moore is a good hooker but he can't hook the ball with his nose, spin the ball back to his foot FFS.

    The Wallabies haven't had a great half back since George Gregan or Nick Farr Jones.

    Australia have actually played pretty well and were robbed by an horrendous decision not to award that try early in the 2nd half.

    Yet another loss at Union's shithole, only one-eyed Kiwis consider EP to be the best stadium in the world.

    Every major stadium in Australia >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> EP

    Watching Australia play is so frigging frustrating at the moment. You can almost taste them getting it together, and yet they never fail to fall short.

    I almost miss the Matt Dunning days when we were legit pants and I never got my hopes up.

    Hint: if a team never puts it together then it's not actually any good. Do yourself a favour and stop over hyping them.

    Given the state of rugby in Oz they won't be putting it together for a long time.

    Lol. How old are you? I don't think you know what it means to say a Wallabies team is not any good.

    The Australian game's not in a great state, but the current side have basically all the pieces. True they have their weaknesses, but its not like 10 years ago when we had no ability in the forward pack whatsoever.

    Maybe they will put it together, maybe they won't. But if you think it's overhyping them to say they have potential, you don't know much about rugby.

    The current Wallabies team certainly isn't the worst Wallabies team I've seen, they're competitive against every team apart from the All Blacks who are making every team look second rate at the moment.

    The All Blacks recently smashed South Africa by a record score in South Africa which puts things in perspective. The Wallabies were actually pretty competitive for the first half yesterday, it was really only in the 2nd half when the All Blacks got on top and ran away with it so they aren't that bad.

    Cheika is a good coach, it's not his fault that Australia can't produce enough good players to beat the All Blacks, a coach is only as good as his cattle and right now the All Blacks just have better cattle.

    I think this team is worse than the 96-97 edition

    When was the last time you thought to yourself 'geez x is a good player' when watching the wallabies, besides pocock or falou.

    The fact Moore for example is still in the team let alone captain says everything where the wallabies are at.

    The fact we don't have battlers like Cross, Dunning, Rogers, Fava getting a gig says a hell of a lot more.

    The current team isn't that bad, the ABs are just that good.

    I'm old enough to have heard plenty of fanboys like yourself continually over hype the national team for years now. You're all a broken record.

    Haha the all the pieces are not there. Just more delusional rubbish. There's barely a talent pool and a serious lack of resources.

    Don't get me wrong, I get why you do it. You've got to drum up interest for yourself otherwise why bother watching the games? It's the same reason the media are trying so hard to make a thing out of this Cheika/Hansen BS. The games are so boring and one sided most of the time where else are you going to get the interest?

    Remind me how many matches the Wallabies have lost this year again? But let me guess it's all coming together right? lol You sound just like that lot from over at The Roar.

    Your opinion would be valid if the results backed up your views any time over the past 15 years. End of the day your resorting to childish insults to try and prove your point. So its time for you to run along so the adults can discuss this
