    Has to be.

    But knowing the selectors they will pick Giteua at 10 and there will be more NSW backs in there.

    Put Cooper and O'Connor on the bench as cover but keep an eye on them, match officials might lose their laptops otherwise...

    That is a scary looking backline.

    I am tempted to agree with you. Barnes is okay but Cooper has stepped up I think. O'Connor is overrated, Cross is a very poor man's Mortlock, who himslef is getting on in years. Barnes back-up 10/12 to join Mortlock and Burgess on the bench.

    I would like to put Mortlock on the line up instead of the bench. Today during the Lions game he really showed some nice moves. the guy is still motivated and I reckon he can do some real damage.

    I still think when it clicks, a Barnes/Giteau partnership in which the two playmakers interchange is Australia's best option. There you have consistency, two kicking options, two playmaking options, good defence and it keeps the opposition guessing. This time last year almost everyone other than me was rubbishing Quade. He's good but still developing. **** the dude could be in jail in a few months time.

    At the end of the S14 if Cooper is still playing the way he is then he has to be Wallabies flyhalf. He's won the two games for QLD. Giteua was crap last year and he hasn't got the Brumbies backline firing either. Barnes has hardly been spectacular either for NSW and can't last 80 minutes.

    Yeah great with that backline don't expect the ball to make it past 10 very often, Barnes kicks every time he touches it and thinks he has the accuracy of Chris Latham with his torpedo kicks.....

    I think you guys need to ditch Drew Mitchell as a winger. I don't think he is fast enough. Ryan Kankowski smoked him on the weekend, and in my opinion, a winger needs to be fast enough to run down almost anyone. What about that quick guy from the reds? He looks promising. Or do you think Mitchell's playing abilities keep him in the spot?

    The fact Mitchell is a try scorer, who is pretty solid in defence keeps his spot, he has pretty good attacking.
    Davies isn't ready for the Wallabies yet.

    Solid in defence? He single handedly lost the Force the game against the Canes last season, he is too erratic and not good enough in the best times to justify taking the risk. We really need to work on our outside backs, the only player I would pencil in for sure would be Diggers, the rest of the players are good but not great at best. 2011 here we come! <_<

    There has been way to much made of this "Kanko smoking Mitchell" ****. Kanko got a huge head start because Mitchell had to turn around, everyone knows Kanko is fast so he is going to take some catching no matter who you are and if you actually watch the footage Mitchell came very close to catching him. If he had another 10 meters I have no doubt he would have. To be have Kanko narrowly beat you in a forty meter dash when he has a head start is nothing to be ashamed of.
    On form Mitchell is probably the best winger in Australia atm (if you count Ioane as a centre). His four tries against the Lions were a great mix of creating-somthing-from-nothing type tries and genuine finishing through great positional play and pace. He would definitely be in my line up.

    Lol at Barnes, the Wallabies "Vice Captain" being on the bench on most people's teams.

    the wallabies have been struggling they need a change, barnes isn't the change, though Cooper might need international experience

    Development mate, development. It would probably be more realistic of me to put in Mortlock, Cross or even Rob Horne, but that's not how MY team works.

    Seriously, Chambers is a half decent athlete, but he'd be far better off stashed in the forwards somewhere.....
