Five lessons for Australia from the Super Rugby semi-finals

Good points raised all of them. Watch these points be glossed over... "It doesn't matter... Folau is great on attack... It doesn't matter, Hooper can run for 150 metres a game... It doesn't matter, AAC makes ground, and doesn't need to pass... It doesn't matter, Palu/Skelton do the hard work in tight..." And so it goes. I think we are quckly becoming really dumb at rugby in Aus. I don't know why... perhaps it is because we have coaches like Graham and Foley who bugger up young players futures... I honestly don't know, but I wish we got back to enterprising, smart play, grounded well done basics.

Is Kurtley Beale a bad defender? A statistical analysis

Looking at that footage over and over... the pass was on if Marto wasn't standing there like a struck tree... Or, Campo could well have dummied and made many metres... either way, I look at that pass and say... "Why Campo?"... well it was on... "Why Marto?" You always have to be ready...

Is Kurtley Beale a bad defender? A statistical analysis

Possibly caused later problems with Barnes.... But I can't understand professional players these days (seeminly mostly Aus players) who don't fix their defence... this is all they have done for a living... 1) you would think they could tackle already, and 2) you would think a coach would put them in the sand pit before or after training...
