You're absolutely right. I have no doubt that we have a team of players capable of performing brilliant things. But so often it's more about doing the simple things well for 80 minutes than the doing the magical. Scotts comments about cut-out passes echo those of Bob Dwyer and are an example of this. Draw and pass isn't as breathtaking as the cut-out pass and less likely to get you 'noticed' but usually so much more effective.
Anyway I am not going to gripe on a negative when things are looking so much more positive. I've always said our current ranking isn't important and neither in particular is our last game - what's important to me is the direction the team is heading and I'm finally convinced that we are heading in the right direction. Keep doing that and the rest will follow.
Been a pleasure reading you all year Brett. And I agree with all your sentiments. And isn't it nice being able to let that optimistic side run rampant yet again - it's been a long year but ultimately rewarding for a Wallaby fan.
I know the Kiwis are going to jump all over our optimism again before out next encounter but they haven't beaten a higher ranked team for some time either! :)
He'll do me too. I was wondering what your answer would be. That's a controversial choice but I thnk the only right one.
