Ewen McKenzie and Michael Hooper have had differing paths to their respective roles in the Wallabies line-up.
Attitude can be an intangible that can often be overlooked when dissecting a recent sporting match.
Ewen McKenzie should be congratulated on the Wallaby Renaissance, illustrated most recently by his side’s emphatic dismantling of the lacklustre French in Brisbane last Saturday.
There has been recent speculation by some in the mainstream rugby media that James O’Connor and the Queensland Rugby Union are sounding each other out about a deal that will see the once errant Wallaby come back to Queensland in 2015.
While the average rugby fan may still be engrossed in the 2014 Super Rugby season, some of us are thinking about the impending series against the erratic French, who arrive on our shores in approximately eight weeks for a three-match series.
The year was 1974, the Wallabies embarrassingly had lost to rugby minnow Tonga and quite simply the Australian Rugby Union was just about flat broke. The game in Australia was in peril.
