Re: Wallabies v France July Tests

Rennie is great in the press conference. He asked if Australia needs to tell their players to pretend they are injured like the French, who act like they've been shot by a sniper. He rightfully says that this kind of stuff is not in the spirit of the game and I'm sure all real rugby supporters agre...

Re: Wallabies v France July Tests

The fact of the matter is LeJounch decided to dip at the last moment. A tackler who is going below the shoulders cannot compensate in a mili-second. Thus there are mitigating circumstances. B'OK fvcked the pooch (as kiwis are known to do). It was a shit decision. End of. LeJaunch then proceeded to ...

Re: Wallabies v France July Tests

Great game- really enjoyed I personally think BO'K was correct- that's eaxctly the type of clash they want to eradicate. Considering maybe only 4 of those French lads are close to their real 23 or 30, they'll learn a lot from that and grow. Well done Aus- it's rare to see a Wallaby side with a set ...

Re: Wallabies v France July Tests

"On the angles we saw initially, we thought it was shoulder contact first. They have to make their call based on images they're seeing and Ben is an excellent referee.

The primary issue here is that there is a lot of nuance in the trans debate but trans activists have bulldozed through that to allow no debate.

Re: Wallabies v France July Tests

I'm still puzzled as to how we lost that. Seemed we had the lions share of possession, territory, opportunities, played pretty decent rugby, attacked more... and still lost.

Finding a way to win in those situations is a real mark of a good team. All kudos to France.
