The Wallabies are about to play their final tune-up match before the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England. Before I preview the game against the USA Eagles at Soldier Field, Chicago, I’ll run through a few thoughts on the All Blacks’ squad.
We are in the nitpicking stage. During this fallow period between the end of the Rugby Championship and start of the World Cup we are reduced to pulling on loose threads and pondering.
Ah, that old Wallabies-fan feeling. It’s back. The bitter taste of blood in your saliva as the cloud slowly clears from your vision and you realise you were kicked in the teeth.
That’s the thing about sports tickets as a birthday present. You never know quite how much the present you’re giving is worth.
The Wallabies need to treat this weekend’s Bledisloe Cup match like the first round of their outsider’s tilt at winning the World Cup.
I haven’t written about the Wallabies set up often this year, despite it being a World Cup year. I’ve tried to enjoy the games as they come, without devaluing them by looking straight past them.
