    Interesting to see that Giteau is at 10 and Barnes at 12. Remember back in the day when Deans thought of Barnes more of a 10 and Giteau as a 12?

    Ab's will take it home, pity Cowan is back in the squad. He couldn't really convince me and Weepu played just awesome. Well Weepu deserves some rest.

    You know I always thought these two were NZs finest halfbacks and should have always been there ahead of Leonard. Leonard is in fine form when playing super rugby but I see him struggling when playing for the blacks. Leonard is a very good mobile, speedy type halfback but I dont know what it is but Leonard doesnt do for the ABs what he does for the chiefs. I dont hate Leonard hes part of the entertainment when you watch the dynamite chiefs backline, often scoring brilliant tries I just hope we see that from him on the international stage.

    However in Weepu and Cowan the ABs are spoilt for halfbacks.

    This is a close one to call. I don't know if Aus were good last week or SA just sucked a big one. NZ 22-10.

    True, but the two games that Cowan played against SA, he didn't look like being in a good form.

    I actually hope the wallabies win this as theyre my fav SH team because of their back line, but without Cooper at 10 it doesn't look like happening. NZ are a lot better team the SA atm so wallabies will have a tough game on their hands so im going for NZ to win by 7

    The reality of the way the game is played at this level now is that a scrum-half can't usually play the full 80. Therefore, both scrum-halves are likely to get playing time.

    IMO, Weepu and Cowan are about on a par with each other when on form, but Weepu is a better impact player, so I think it makes more sense for him to come on about 50-60 minutes into the game.

    Additionally, Weepu has missed 60% of the training time in Australia so he won't be up to speed on the game plan.

    I may be a Crusaders supporter, but even I recognise that he is not up to it at the moment. Alby Mathewson is well ahead of him as the third scrum-half.

    I think it will be a nine point win to the All Blacks.
    I think Aus will score first through a penalty, then the ABs will streak away to a 15-20 point lead, only to have Aus come back at them, but then Carter will put beyond doubt with 10 to go.

    Hows that for a concise prediction?! ;)
