It was a deflating Tri-Nations Campaign. Full of ego, pride and joy, the only thing left in me is the tail between my legs after footing the bill at the Rugby bar last night. Even the fat chick with a Springbok Jersey won't take my number. It hurt so bad!LOL! I wish I had a Wallaby credit card and I would have gotten a hooker. This seems to be the norm. I won't name any names though! What happened to Lote anyway :lol: Back to Dingo and the Wallabies. During the 2004 Super 14 Finals btwn Crusaders and Brumbies, Deans actually substituted Carter and brought Mertehns in after trailing 24-0 in the first 20 minutes. The end result was close. 47-38 for the Brumbies. He should have made those second half changes way earlier at the 15-0 mark. Many assume Giteau deserves the #10 spot when he returns to the Brumbies but he doesn't. Lealiifano has done well this far and I think he should get a Wallaby call-up. Every time there is a highlight of a Wallabyplayer before a big match, that player always messes up. Follow the example of Giteau, Ashley-Cooper, Barnes and Brown. Go to rugbydump.com Many Wallabies wouldn't prefer Quade at fly-half going into the Tri-Nations 2010 and RWC 2011. Peter Hewat and Norton Knight were largely ignored for Wallaby call-ups. Since Burke, NSW hasn't produced a good full-back yet. Brumbies breeds the Fly-halves i.e Larkham and Giteau, Reds-Wingers Ioane and Hynes, NSW, front row-Nau & Robinson. What has the Force produced this far? It appeared the Force provided 6 starting Wallabies just for ticket sales promotion. Burgess has got to go.Habana slipped off of him, Giteau was playing fetch the Contortionist through the whole game and Burgess was not controlling the defense spread. He has no direct attack. Half the time his head is up looking around. It appears everyone is heading to the Brumbies in anticipation of the New Super 15 team formation. I think it would be a better edge during a contract negotiation to transfer from the Brumbies than to move from the Reds. Brumbies just have a talent overload. 3 fly-halves(Giteau, Lealiifano, and Tomua)3 Scrum halves(Phibbs, Valentine and Giteau) Ask me who the Wallaby fullback is and I blank out. O' Connor should have played 12 and Ashley Cooper 15. Period! Chisholm did well and I must say Mortlock's presence and Sharpe's ball carrying was missed. Ashley Cooper's hand-off was shut down and his inability to tackle on the left is no longer a secret. Fourie's and Habana's try were to his left. Check the Video. Coincidence. Check the Hong-Kong Bledisloe game. Sivivatu went inside on his left. I am not a Perth follower but even after watching the Ba-bas game, Cross resumes his line formation all the time without first securing the ball. No ball, no offense. So why not secure the ball first. Anyway, lets try clear things up and comment more. Thank you!
