Sometime in the 90s, I vaguely recall the rugby powers that be sending out a message to all that the new names for the no. 12 and no. 13 would now be known as ‘left centre’ and ‘right centre’ respectively.

There seems to be a current policy of experimentation within the Australian rugby team and sadly I have to hold my favourite coach partly to blame for this. However, this has been happening for a while with other Wallabies coaches to blame as well.

It has been the million-dollar question each time southern-hemisphere rugby stars emigrate to the north. And it’s fair to say that most established ‘brands’ didn’t deliver up north.

If head coach Robbie Deans names the 30 Wallabies today he wants for the Rugby World Cup, without any interference from co-selectors Jim Williams and David Nucifora, the men-in-gold have a genuine chance to reach the final on October 23.

Matt Giteau is not a fly-half and never has been. He is a centre with X-factor. As part of the best backline in the world, his kicking duties should be curtailed and his evasive line running encouraged.

Matt Giteau isn’t the only Wallabies stalwart under pressure to regain his starting position with quiet achiever Rob Simmons squeezing out veteran lock Nathan Sharpe.
