Absolutely shocking last 20 from the ABs, much like the first 40. Won it on the back of a great 15 minutes after halftime. Often looked shakey trying to hold possession. That game was a great opportunity to be ruthless but this team isn't there yet, effort was there but very little structure and purpose. So many shit offloads/passes.

Happier than last week obviously but frustrating to watch. Don't understand so much gushing from the pundits. Oz were poor today too.

Ouch. Normal transmission resumed? Well done All Blacks. Wallabies never capitulated which has to be encouraging for them. Tighten up a few missed tackles and they are right back in it. Not good enough today, but given there are another 5 or 6 matches to go they could snatch a win or two.

I didn’t think there was much “interpretation” at play in the no try. Placing the ball (a dynamic movement or whatever they call it now) would have been fine. The replay looked pretty clear that he got to his knees and moved (propelled) himself forward before placing. The decision was made quickly from that replay.

What was the feeling in the Australian broadcast? It was a small movement but to me if you allow that, you allow every tackles player to crawl.

I agree you can't allow that but are you seriously saying you believe he moved his knees forward. I've just watched it back and he 100% did not propel himself forward

If you are tackled and not held you can release, get up regather. You cant get up at the bottom of a ruck without releasing the ball and move forward. If he just reached out inspector gadget style then no problem. It looked like a fair call IMHO.

He did though. He propelled himself off both his hand and knee. Could he have reached the line without getting up? No.
He didn't propel himself forward. The weight of the players on top of him prevented him from lifting his arm to place the ball. Lifting himself up onto his knees meant he could place the ball. It was a "double movement" but it was vertical not horizontal. Correct decision
He did though, you can reach further forward from being up on your knee than you can prone on the ground. Propelled forward doesn't mean he crawled forward it means he pushed himself forward off his knee.

No the first half wasn't shocking, but it does read like that sorry. I just mean I found it similar in terms of lack of patience, last of structure and purpose in general. That game was won off moments of individual plays and turnover ball. There was a lineout at the end of the first half in their 22 on attack and we threw a shit ball but still got it back, then proceeded to do five pick and gos and give away a penalty for holding on. That's pretty f'n poor. RMo not bossing the game at this level yet.

Watch it again as I have. He had bodies on top of him and could not place the ball. He got to his knees so he could place the ball. His knees never moved forward.

From the one replay I felt he did - or at least got on his hands and knees and leveraged off them.

They were never going to award that

Been a double-movement for as long as the game’s been played.

As above - think we're just operating under different definitions of what propelled forward means. But as we both agree it was a penalty, I'm not sure if we're actually disagreeing on what happened.

Yep. Still love it when rugby refs actually use the term 'double movement' as the purists on here will always come out screaming that it doesn't exist in rugby. (the term)

I've always found that argument bizarre. No one ever complains when a ref says 'truck and trailer', 'lazy running' or indeed 'forward pass' despite those terms not actually being in the laws. Rugby is full of laws that are actually kind of vague and refs have always used informal jargon to denote what the players actually did wrong.

Best game I have even seen from Tuipulotou. He was immense and took responsibility at lineup time. Savea had a monster game and Cane continued his run of form. Think Umaga-Jensen is looking the part also at this level.

Toomua was a massive loss for Aus. They lost leadership and some direction when he departed but the the front five just were not close to the pitch they set last week.

He wasn't trying to reach further. There was no need for him to reach further. He was right by the TRY line and if he did not have people on him he could have placed the ball in the exact same spot he did when he got to his knees.

Imagine doing womens press ups and when you are in the up position with someone sitting on your back you can reach one arm forward. You then go flat to the floor and you can't reach out anymore. That is all

On second look, he was on the ground then got up and propelled by himself. What an idiot.

Have just rewatched it. He didn't do a women's press up to get up, he brought his knees forward to get them underneath and then push up.

Magic both times :blush:

ABs need about 30% improvement on that performance, not enough treasuring the ball, some really pointless kicking, and a few too many missed tackles. Nice to see a bunch of newbies getting game time, can't hurt for the future.

Reckon Eroni Clarke's young fella is going to be one of the greats in due course, almost Johan out there at stages.

Wobs have some nice looking players coming through, they are getting the mongrel back, not good news looking to 2023 or indeed the brace of games in Oz this year.

This. It wasn't what I would class as being dominated. They were in the contest, but boy when the All Blacks got a whiff, they absolutely stepped it up 3 gears.

You can’t just do the caterpillar dance move all the way to the line. Up, slide forward. Up, slide forward. Needed to let go of the ball before getting to his knees.

Sam Cane is immense. Tackles everything hard. Very happy for the skip to be on the end of a great team try. Both NZ halfbacks played well.

Looking forward to seeing more of Caleb Clarke.

Anyone want to argue Aaron Smith over TJ?
It won’t affect the result, we have been comprehensively outplayed. But it is an interesting point to look at. What did he do that constituted a penalty. At first glance I thought penalty but what did he actually do illegally? He remained tackled at all times and so couldn’t have played the ball without releasing. He didn’t propel himself forward as he was in the same spot before and after. He placed the ball so didn’t hold the ball in the tackle.
I thought kiwis liked to discuss interpretations of the laws?
Either you watched a different feed to the one I watched with Aussie commentators agreeing with the call, or you are arguing for the sake of arguing, either way it doesn't pan out well for people's view of you as a "sore loser".

On reply the player clearly infringed, no try, penalty, good decisions Gardiner.

Just back from the pub. Reasonably happy with that. Think the score flatters us a bit. It never really felt like OZ were out of it.

The wallabies had chances and couldn't convert, the all blacks had 10-15min of really good play and got the rewards.

Feel the wallabies got sacked in a bit throwing the ball around a lot more which played into the all blacks hands. They weren't able to suffocate us much as the collisions really evened up compared toast week.

Some of these wallaby young guys are going to be outstanding though

Just back from the game. Your comments are spot on. Oz were competitive the whole game but could not get the points,. Bothe teams were let off by the respective opposition dropping the ball at inopportune times. Some the the passing was substandard but all the tries were crackers.

Reckon Eroni Clarke's young fella is going to be one of the greats in due course, almost Johan out there at stages.\
Johan Ackerman? Seems an odd comparison, but ok.

Yep, my take as well. I don't see the Wallabies missing that many tackles once they're back in Oz, and the game will tighten up again...

Been a double-movement for as long as the game’s been played.
Yep. And Hooper knew it, which is why he did not get in Angus' face.
