Wallabies remain maddeningly inconsistent throughout 2016

The 2016 season finished like it started for the Wallabies. With a loss to England.

Is this really the Australian way?

They say that the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing repeatedly while expecting different results. While the result of Saturday’s match against England will not make Michael Cheika a head-case, it should provoke some serious scratching of the cranium.

The clown is a genius (against the media)

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.

Time to put the boot into the Wallabies

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.

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.
