  • The battle lines have been drawn. A sold out Sydney crowd awaits. Should be a belter.

    We'll miss Genia, but they will miss Ringrose and Leavy. Lukhan Tui will add some muscle in tight, and I expect it to be a slog of a match.

    Hopefully we'll get a few moments of brilliance from Beale and Folau, which will see us home. But I'm not confident.



  • I'd back your boys with Genia driving them around the field, but Phipps is such a massive drop in class in such a pivotal position.

    Really looking forward to this, Wallabies just need to defend their asses off against a pretty unimaginative Irish attack and then as you say, hope for one or two pieces of brilliance from Beale and Folau.



  • A different no.7 and loose forward combination in each test for the Irish.

    Schmidt has really mixed up his selections across the series.



  • Only two backs on that Aussie bench.

    The same as the previous tests. Cheika is in love with the 6:2 split.



  • Schmidt not including Ringrose is a massive mistake IMHO. If he wanted to give Bundee another run he should have left out Henshaw.



  • Hanigan off the bench should add some impact...

  • Not pissing in pockets but I sense this aussie team is in quite good shape. Experience in key areas, breakdown, halfback, five eight, kurtley and folau. Lineouts and scrum have enough.

    First test you could see real potential and even first 10 minutes of second (I know but the try was a result of good patterns) and then they all learnt what happens against a well drilled team.

    Cheikas last stand .

    Keep the bullshit down, and fly low under the radar and hit Japan running.

    Last year could've taken the bledisloe...

    Think you auses should be quietly optimistic

    They at SFS or Homebush?

    Ringrose is injured. Otherwise, he’s a shoo-in for the 13 jersey. Henshaw is the best at 12.

    Chris Farrell is also a good option for 13 for different gameplay. Liked him in the 6N
