Re: Wallaby World Cup squad and form guide

Some of the decisions made by Moore defied belief. Twice, at 19-3 down and 19-6 down they had a penalty. 30m out. Rather than kicking for touch and trying to score a try off their main weapon, the rolling maul, he opted to take the points. Really dumb rugby :thumbdown: I am actually warming to the ...

Brumbies were beaten badly at the breakdown with 2 of our Wallaby starters in the back row. 'Non-existent' is a bit much but they certainly nullified Pocock's influence, particularly in the first half. Brumbies weren't beaten at the breakdown. They were smashed in contact.

Very quick to forget that Kurindrani was our best backline player in November. The reality is, soup form gets them to camp, camp(and previous wallaby form) will decide who makes it. Camp will decide who makes it. Previous Wallaby form is great for picking last September's teams. Less so this Septem...

The caveat is that Chieka and Larkham might turn out to be really good, and craft a team that is more than the sum of its parts, and create a super-hybrid, with the extra talent from the other teams.

That's true, but Chieka achieved excellent results with the Tahs last year, and Larkham has had the Brumbies firing in the past. They have to work out what has changed. It may simply be a case of lots of players out of form at once. In which case my previous comments don't necessarily apply. But the...
