This will be interesting this week to see whether the kiwis keep the foot down here.
Don’t let the Aussies score soft late points.

Still can't see the real issue. That's why you guys will remain 3 steps behind.

Off to Perth for the decider pity win.

Wallabies do have a decent record at Optus stadium.

Yes, and I believe that AB's v Springboks will be played in Perth as well.
I'm not sure how I feel about it. I have friends who already brought tickets but are now saying they wont go regardless. They just don't want to take the risk. Others who say this is the stuff we should be doing as reward for our hard-borders. Meanwhile McGowan's saying he hasn't decided yet but the situation has definitely changed. Buggered if I know. WA has managed to enjoy a relatively unrestricted life compared to over east for some time now thanks to McGowans strength really. Plenty who think none of these types of one off events are worth risking all the economic, physical and mental positives that WA has enjoyed compared to the mob across the desert.

Perth currently seems to be the best option for RC to go ahead. Brisbane would be another option?
However things might change again and further outbreaks might sabotage any potential games with crowds.

It seems NZ has called this one off. They don't want to come and play this one without having the proposed future games over the next few months fixtured and finalised also. They've come to a new position of not sending the team away until there is more definitive fixture clarity over the coming months as they will be away for those couple of months. Fair enough I guess but it would have been handy to have got to that decision earlier so other parties could plan and address.

They are a bunch of cowards.

The Wallabies living up to their sponsor's name. Lucky for them the All Blacks couldn't kick.

Abysmal display from the Wallabies, still trying to accept it as an excuse for the current teams long haul transformation that hopefully will produce some results for the sake of Aussie fans.

Wouldn't want to fill in the shoes of Wallabies social media group tonight.

As I mentioned before, the real rugby showdown will be between RSA and AB's, however I'm confident that we'll enjoy a better and more entertaining match between Pumas and Wallabies than today's game.

I haven't watched much rugby from the games I have that was the worst I've seen us. We were trash.

Noah Lolesio is a dud. Worst kicking 10 I've ever laid eyes on. Let's hope that boat moves on quickly.
