    Best. Joke. Ever.

    That aside, it's a fair selection, although I would have picked The Evil Wizard as captain. This will be a good chance to figure if O'Connor is up to the task.

    So what do you Aussies make of Giteau and Mortlock losing the Captaincy Roles? It shocked me. Although Mortlocks most recent injury sums up why he's not going to make the WC. What did Giteau do? surely he'll be around in 2011.

    Giteau didn't lose a captaincy role...

    George Smith was a vice captain, but now that position has gone to Barnes with Elsom being named captain...

    These changes were bound to happen...

    With his running game and golden boot these Irish and Welsh backs will be in total disarray.

    Out of interest, what kind of team would probably be played vs Gloucester and vs Cardiff Blues? Can;t wait for the Blues match :D I am so gonna go to that one, hopefully we can do what the O's did and get a win ;)
    Likely Cardiff team:

    1. Gary Powell
    2. Gareth Williams
    3. Tau'fauo Filise
    4. Deiniol Jones
    5. Paul Tito
    6. Maama Molitika (if fit anyway, if not probably Ben White or Scott Morgan)
    7. Robin Sowden Taylor/Sam Warburton (one or both will be involved with the National Side, but at leats one will be able to play)
    8. Xavier Rush
    9. Richie Rees
    10. Sam Norton-Knight
    11. Chris Czekaj/Dafydd James
    12. Gavin Evans
    13. Casey Laulala/Dafydd James
    14. Richard Mustoe (who scored the winner for the O's against Australia back in 2006)

    Was going through the injury list for England (Andy Sheridan, Phil Vickery, Julian White, Lee Mears, Simon Shaw, Harry Ellis, Riki Flutey, Delon Armitage & possibly Nick Easter) and saw that most were frontline players and especially in the front-row.

    IMO, the Wallabies have this game in the bag....they might as well bring Baxter back and start him in this game.

    But if they lose.... :lol:

    It's beyond me how you think O'Conner is a joke. He's been pretty damn good.
    Also glad to see Elsom as Captain...I love that dude.
    Also, Also, glad to see Matt Dunning back in "form"...random drop goals, ahoy! No, seriously, Matt Dunning>You.

    O'Conner was solid during the super 14 and at times against South Africa, however the two times he played against the All Blacks he was completely hopeless - he dropped the ball 3-4 times each game, and kicked the ball out on the full more than once - it was like the AB's were playing with 16 men. He has some serious talent, but it may be too soon for him at this level.
