I hope to see the wallabies come out firing, you would hope professional athletes wouldn't buy into the idea of a dead rubber, hopefully being the first to win at eden park in nearly 30 years will get the up

It’s technically not a dead rubber though. For the Bledisloe, yes. But if Aus win with a BP, they restrict NZ to not get a BP and SA lose without a BP, Australia wins the Rugby Championship.

It’s a tall order, but still technically possible.

This will go one of two ways. Either the Wallabies won’t be able to get up for this after the last game, or they will come out fired up and wanting to prove a point. Honestly I wouldn’t be surprised if Australia won this - the ABs still don’t look right. It’s probably the best chance the Wallabies have had at Eden Park in a long time. I know they can’t win the Bledisloe but the Eden Park jinx is one that Aussie rugby is probably dying to get rid of.

Seems like a standard AB win but pretty much no game has been standard this entire RC. My only prediction is Wallabies wont turn their back on the ref when being spoken to. :p

Self reflection clearly isn't something a SA journalist spends much time on.

All Bleks by roughly a million.
Most are a lot better than SArugby mag. Even I cringe at the angles those... journalists take.

Anyway, here's hoping Aussie take a W!

This is really the only time I've thought the ABs should win relatively easy for this season.

edit: forgot to moan about the team selection SO, I still see we leave out the other half of our best wingers(Reece) in NZ, and put maybe our best fullback on the wing. 👍

Gotta wonder what these refs have been told... Didn't wanna look at that lift, then that knock on... They just seem hesitant to make a decision already...


Edit: *nods* At Jordie's cut out pass *sounding like Palpatine* yessssssss
