Stockdale was clearly a massive liability in that game, but he's probably the FB with the highest ceiling of ability. I'd probably stick with him for now.

Re: Wallabies 2020 thread

NZ did basically nothing and were 26-0 up, purely from Australian errors. Sounds simple because it's untrue. NZ maintained control with ball and without. It ain't "nothing". Sure, they capitalised on a multitude of woe-inducing Wallaby errors - especially first half. They also made plenty of errors...

Re: Wallabies 2020 thread

That first 40 was the worst I've ever seen Australia play. White was the biggest issue as far as I am concerned, followed by Lolesio and the idea of playing him at 15 in defence. NZ did basically nothing and we're 26-0 up, purely from Australian errors. Horrible to watch. The good news is that when ...

Byrne definitely isn't good enough. I'd drop him for not getting up in the line for the try in the last phase of play. He was directly responsible for that dogleg and subsequent linebreak.

You'd have to assume POM doesn't play for Ireland after this season, and Farrell is pooing in his pants about his squad. Picking him is pure fear from a guy who I suspect is out of his depth. Development isn't going to be high on his list of priorities at the moment.
