Re: Untrustworthy Saffas slink away from RC

The lack of game time argument is a convenient excuse.

Not ideal but it's hardly dire either. SRA ...

Interesting that 1 week after a draw, that panel can't see the ABs winning by less than 2 scores. I mean, I don't think the Wallabies will win, but that is why you get accusations of arrogance. It's interesting that after 17 years of losing, and one draw in a first up game, the Wallabies think they...

They will get to play 3 domestic games, then they go into camp where they will play an in-house game or two (if they are sensible) and then they will in all likelihood play Argentina who are just as undercooked in the 1st round. That's 5-6 games and a whole lot of training to get match fit. Not to m...

A number of factors. Hansen's shocking game plan (bombs inside the oppo 22) and selections contributed a lot towards the poor performance.
