THE ROAR ON
How many players and coaches attended the former Reserve Bank governor, Ian Macfarlane’s ‘Mosman Address’ on Friday June 10, 2011?

Let's get two things straight.
1. All history is interpretation. Good history gives insight to the problems of the present.
2. Statistics can easily be used to obscure obvious truths. Just as a tennis match can be won by the players loosing more points, rugby games can be won by the team scoring fewer tries or kicking less penalties, etc.
You've got it. "What can we do about it?
That's the question that seems to be never seriously thought through ... perhaps too much influenced by the prediction of ARU boss, John O'Neill, that the WC will see an All Blacks v Wallabies final. How do you come to that? "I just like what I see" was O'Niell's response in mid-April this year.
And again, can anyone 'translate' Adam Ashley-Copper's after-match 'what-we-tried-to-do' comment last weekend?:
"We had the focus of going through them" ... could well set the pattern for another purposeless discussion at the next team meeting!
