Re: The Australian Politics Thread

Alan Jones on Turnbull's speech - the content and the tone of that speech was quite unfortunate. He should be the Prime Minister for all of Australia.

Jacqui Lambie - he needs to grow a backbone and stop blaming everyone for his poor performance.

Re: Australia post-mortem

Some good points raised...

We need someone with a bigger boot to get us playing in opposition territory. Foley just isn't that person.

All of his clearing kicks went up to half way gifting England great territory.

We also cannot kick penalties unless we are within 40 metres from the posts.

Sublime showing by the All Blacks. Although it was close at first, it seemed like they were toying with Wales.

Great win and based on the performances of AU and NZ tonight, I don't think the Bled is coming back this year.

Australia gave away penalties last week and gave away dropped balls tonight.
