    personally, i think giteau is crap at 9, i was really excited to see him move there, but unfortuneately he's junk there. also, i dont care, i want ryan cross to start for the wallabies. anyone agree? tape up his head and let him go, he's an ugly sod but he's big and doesnt muck about

    personally i don't know why so much focus is being put on the aussie backline, i think its clear that most of our struggles have been in the forwards

    What is the Wallaby backline? Won't it change all the time with injuries and such....? What do you think is there true backline barring injuries??????



    I would have if all were fit.....



    15. Latham

    14. Mitchell

    11. Gerard

    13. Rathbone

    12. Giteau

    10. Larkham

    09. Gregan



    Well Aussies really don't have anyone good enough to take over the Grregan/Larkham combination...so they remain by default. Giteau also does not have anyone good enough to take over 12. Rathbone is strong and I think he would do a better job now at centre than the aging Mortlock who is starting to look a little slow pace wise. Gerard is a strong winger and has fantastic pace and a good kick....Mitchell is not as fast as Gerard but at least he can create stuff out of nothing. Latham....well thats pretty obvious.



    Tuqiri does not offer enough anymore....he has become too predictable and even though he has a big name he has very little to show for it....Rokocoko and Sivivatu do more in a test than Tuqiri does. Ione is promising but not experienced enough.

    Rathbone has been out for most of last and this season some sort of recurring injury. I dont know what it is off the top of my head though. It was on the news a while back.
