Re: The Australian Politics Thread

Now that chinless wingnut Charlie Battenberg's 'Onya mate!' letter to Sir John Turd is public knowledge, one wonders whether it will have much impact. It was one fúck of a long time ago, after all. Even so, played right it could be decisive in ridding Straya of the Crown link once Lizzie Battenberg...

Re: Wallabies 2020 thread

It was a mistake sure, but I'm saying Goodhue would've scored anyway. The only reason the inside defenders got to Goodhue is because Goodhue slowed down once he knew he had created the overlap. Which in no way negates the principle - outside defenders stick to your man and trust the inside defender...

Re: Wallabies 2020 thread

It wouldn't have mattered. Had he not come in Goodhue would've scored. It was the inside defenders fault, shouldn't have let Goodhue get on his outside. No. The outside man sticks to his man so as not to gift an overlap. It is a fundamental thing that 10 year olds learn. IIRC the inside defender go...

1. Scrum was OK, and lineout was better. 2. The ABs shaded the wobs in the breakdown, probably got more turnovers than the wobs (haven't checked the stats). 3.
