Interesting to read that there is a fortnight until this game. Both teams will be fresh after long road trips, so no excuses there.

Sydney has always been a happy hunting ground for the Wallabies. I suspect it will be closer than many people expect. A Wallaby win would really throw the cat amongst the pigeons. So what are the ramifications, if the match is a draw does it come down to points difference?

Based on Australians records at the SANZAR judiciary this year I think we can safely say Hooper will not be playing

in the event that the Wallabies win this one it would give them a right royal ranking boost I expect, does anybody know if that will take them back to No. 3? Would be nice for the SH nations to tip up for the WC as 1,2 and 3. (as it should be)

I know Cheika likes the physical stuff - but he must be annoyed by the stupidity of Folau / Skelton and probably Hooper.

For Hooper by definition he could lose the incumbency.

i'll be honest i don't think i noticed any - to be honest i wasn't looking.
Cheika must be getting annoyed with the poor discipline.

PS - favourite funny moment was arg play running into pocock for the try Folau started by running back. terrible playing for card.

The Wallabies sit high atop the 2015 Rugby Championship table,rubbing their superior points difference in the faces of their underlings (+29 compared to the ABs +28).ABs have to win against all odds to sneak it.Itll take a miracle.

Do you deliberately misspell PI/Maori names? Do you think it is hilarious to do so? I suggest that if you want to support the ABs that you make more of an effort to spell Polynesian names. For the record the correct spellings are Piutau, Mealamu and Perenara.

Don't make excuses KG. Keven Mealamu has been an AB since 2002 and played almost 130 tests, and you can't even be bothered to spell his name correctly. Either that or you've deliberately spelled it incorrectly because you think it's funny to do so.

No. I just find it a little troubling that you seem to glean immense personal joy from deliberately misspelling Polynesian names. Do you find these names too traditional or exotic for your sensibilities? Honest question, do you know the Maori verse to God Defend New Zealand?

I don't think the ABs will be able to focus with the jet lag they would be suffering from with all the away games that have been shamefully forced upon them by SANZAR this year.

how are you gauging that?
Do you find these names too traditional or exotic for your sensibilities?
why are they traditional? or exotic? the answer could also be c) don't know how they are spelled.
Honest question, do you know the Maori verse to God Defend New Zealand?
no - not completely. what does that have to do with anything?

Fair enough KG. I just find it a little strange that an individual can tally up 130 tests for the ABs and you've never bothered to learn his name. It's probably just a coincidence that it's only the Polynesian names that you don't bother to learn.

There is a big difference being perfect and bothering to know the name of a 130 test cap former All Black captain. Anyway, lets leave this issue now, you clearly find misspelling Polynesian names amusing and nothing I post will change that fact.

why should we leave it?
you've accused me repeatedly of finding it amusing and deliberate - but won't back up your statement.

i'm calling you on it because you're being a cock, again.
i'd be happy to put forward evidence of you being a cock - and you only have to look at the first page for the most recent examples.

I'm glad that you think you're prefect - tell me more about how amazing you are, it's really interesting (i may only be speaking for myself).
