Pretty sure Hooper wouldn’t qualify for the Giteau rule within ~1 year, as it requires 60 caps AND 7 years in Super Rugby. He would make the 60 cap threshold but would have to wait until 2018(?) to be eligible for the 7 year rule

“Ok TWAS. Quade is awesome and will be as instrumental as Foley was at sevens.”

Because that’s exactly what he said

Rocky sevens road for Quade, Wallabies

All Blacks relentless in winning the Rugby World Cup

The auto-moderation buzz words confuse me

“Usually in media reports, reporters ask questions. But in sports reports, they ask statements instead.”

James O'Connor lets fly in long Facebook statement

I always thought of it as Simmons-Mumm and Douglas-Skelton as the 1st and 2nd choices for the lineout-type lock and the more powerful lock (at least that seems to be what Cheika is doing). Then I thought he would’ve had Carter and Horwill as the respective 3rd choices. Really suprised that Carter went in instead of Horwill.

James Horwill still hopes for Wallabies call-up

I just put them as 5s, purely because you can’t judge someone for <10 mins gametime, unless they actually have a big good/bad impact.

Wallabies DIY player ratings: Rugby World Cup vs Fiji

You can leave a msg for the editors if you need it out quicker. (ie. before a game starts) I think it’s usually posted the next day, but send Patrick a msg, and he might be able to make it come out quicker.

No surprises in Wallabies team to play Fiji

Huh?

“It’s normal over here”

“We take it for what it is: a lack of respect against a great player. If you’re no good, nobody cares. You don’t get booed unless you’re any good.”

Where does he scold the crowd? Says that it’s normal for players to be booed, and it’s often the players seen as threats that are the ones booed.

Steve Hansen scolds his All Blacks for indiscipline

We seem to think very alike Harry, based on our comments. What’s that saying about great minds?

ABs looking far more dangerous now

ABs need to stop passing so far back before they move forward. They’re not getting very far if at all over the advantage line.

Love how everyone has to clarify that it was A. Smith who scored. 😀

Vito to come on soon? Might have missed their inputs, but don’t see Read or Kaino playing up to their usual standards.

He was expecting it. Just had a sudden case of feet for hands.

Argentina going very well under the AB kick and chase. Change of tactic needed?
