    What is everyone's take on moving Folau to the centers? It would have to be in the 13 jersey as I see him more of a runner than a play maker. Haylett-Petty would be able to cover him at FB. The reason why I don't think Cheika will make the move is because Kerevi has been one of our best performing backs this year and I am not sure how he would go out on a wing

    He should be in the centres now. He's a better centre potentially.

    He would be a more damaging player in the centers I think the move has to be made

    My main problem with Folau --> 13 is that it is the hardest position to defend at.
    I don't see Folau as a top defender, which is why I want him @ 14 - put Reece 'Boomstick' Hodge @ FB, Kerevi @ OC, and bring Folau into 13 on attack.

    Hodge already covers for Cooper in defence

    It's not shit, it's just not very good.

    Shit is having Matt Dunning at prop.

    You would say on form Australia have done well if they only lose by 20

    That Irish victory certainly puts an interesting twist to the Wallabies' grand slam aspirations.

    Wouldn't surprise me if we lost to Scotland, Wales were completely insipid against us and we couldn't really put them to the sword.

    Foley's a complete liability.

    England deal easily with South Africa to go 11 on the bounce.

    Sth Africa beaten by Italy for the 1st time. ABs do enough to win. France v Aus wasn't too bad a game.

    Block 108 as loud as any
    Agreed. Haven't looked like stopping.

    Only hope we have is hold a strong defencive line and concede as little as possible from here on in and hope they tire for us to catch them on the counter

    Or more likely (and hopefully) Cheka puts a rocket up em at half time and we fight back

    Enthralling rugby by the Irish and the Australian defence held strong for the most part but the Irish too strong

    How does Mumm get a game? all he does is give away dumb penalties and falls of tackles

    Beat SA one week, lose to Tonga the next. SA in serious trouble. I thought the Wallabies should've won in the end. AB's do enough despite being 2nd best most of the day.

    Yeah wallabies probably should have won but when you concede so many dumb penalties early maybe we didn't deserve it. Should have held on at the end though

    That's the all blacks in a nutshell as well. They don't have to be the best team all game - just when it counts. That's how good they are.
