Ladeez and gentleman, in the seniors’ corner, weighing in at 140kg and at 67 years old, the one, the only, genial George Foreman.
By all measures, Australian rugby has had a rather disappointing year. This has been book-ended by a series whitewash at the start and twin losses at the end.
After a year to forget for the Wallabies. Played 15, won six and lost nine including four straight loses to England – it would be easy to kick a team while they’re down.
We have heard many times how coaches talk about a ‘horses for courses’ team – a team picked based on certain unique challenges and objectives.
It has been very much a mixed bag for the Wallabies this year, with a slow start, injuries and an unsettled line up for much of the year resulting in six wins from 15 starts. In the battle of the fly-halves, Bernard Foley is three wins from ten starts.
Five Test losses in a row, the lowest batting total in Australia in 32 years, and a genuine risk of a home series whitewash for the first time ever: no matter which way you look at it, the Australian cricket team is struggling at the moment.
