Re: Wallabies 2021 OFFICIAL thread

Did the Wallabies ever lose a test because Pocock and Hooper were too small? The Wallabies, objectively, are a mediocre outfit. Only won 47 of 99 tests in the last 8 years. Arguing over Swinton here is a waste of time given he'll be copping a 6-8 week ban. Pocock is yesterday's man and Hooper will ...

Re: Wallabies 2021 OFFICIAL thread

Yes. Too much line out ball lost, too little physical impact in the tackle and too little bosh taking the ball forwards. Yes, they get some great turnovers, but at the price of reduced oomph and mongrel in the forward pack. Did we so lose tests due to that? I think so. Probably. But can't say 100%....
