It would appear that Australia is shit at every sport. Rugby Union being no exception.
Putrid. Strayan rugby side needs more Samoans and less Sydney eastern suburb private school boys.
Woeful... When you see Pocock doing those moisturiser commercials, you realise why we are so soft.
Just a bunch of pampered squibs..
Looks like the Aussies need a few more bugs.
There wouldn't be enough
Like Tevita Putridrani? Worst player I've seen in a gold shirt.
What do you expect when you blood youth against England, then bring back a bunch of average 30+ year olds.
We need to refresh the team not patch up holes so we won't lose by much.
I'd go with the following group for the next game:
1. James Slipper
2. Stephen Moore
3. Sekope Kepu
4. Rob Simmons
5. Kane Douglas
6. Scott Fardy
7. Michael Hooper
8. David Pocock
9. Will Genia
10. Bernard Foley
11. Adam Ashley-Cooper
12. Reece Hodge
13. Samu Kerevi
14. Dane Haylett-Petty
15. Israel Folau
16. James Hanson
17. Allan Alaalatoa
18. Scott Sio
19. Adam Coleman
20. Sean McMahon
21. Nick Phipps
22. Quade Cooper
23. Luke Morahan
With Toomua, Horne and Giteau all injured and the backline not working at all on Saturday, a major reshuffle of the backline is required. I wanted Folau to shift to 13 but given who we have to put onto the wing, I think our team is better with Folau at 15 and Kerevi at 13. I have a lot of faith in Reece Hodge and I reckon he can come in ASAP.
The likes of Dean Mumm, Tatafu Polota-Nau (both due to age) and Tevita Kuridrani (long-term form) all need a lot of pressure put on them for the good of the side. Kuridrani has underperformed for a good while now and I think Kerevi's added leg speed will be of benefit. Mumm and Polota-Nau have younger guys behind them in Adam Coleman, Rory Arnold, and James Hanson, Andrew Ready who should be given opportunities while this Wallabies side regenerates. And if it took a belting like Saturday night to make that happen then so be it.
How on earth is Moore a walk up starter! Old, past it. Can we move on!
Move on to whom?
Anyone. They can't be any worse than what Moore has been lately.
Gutsy first half from the Wallabies.. Adam Coleman has been immense. Big, strong and plenty of aggression..
What a pity there's no option to change the commentary. The sooking by Phil Kearns is reaching fever pitch. Thank heavens the ref shut Moore up too. Ordinary game being ruined by constant niggle.
Will Genia should just piss off back to Queensland and never play again. Absolutely woeful player.
Forward pass by NZ is in vogue tonight. I've seen about 10 so far in the 10 mins I've watched.
******* idiots.. IDIOTS. You're almost inside the 22 and you give away a penalty with the ball 15m away.
Playing with 14 sure don't help....game over!!
I'm mates with an ex-Wallaby who watches with the sound off.Can't tolerate the shite the commentary team spruiks.Won't hear a good word about Kearns...says every time he opens his mouth the IQ of the world drops!!Reckons it's improved since Buddha and Gordon Bray but not by an amount you'd notice.
Improved effort but outclassed again, can't see the Wallabies win the Bledisloe in the foreseeable future. Credit to the All Blacks, they are an absolute machine..
Argentina beating New Zealand.
in the words of Robin Williams: its your only ******* sport, i mean come on
