Hi Nick, I counted 2 turnovers won from the Wallabies from memory (not sure on that) versus the 10 the All Blacks won as you stated above. I looked at the team lists and if you go over the player stats from Super Rugby the All Blacks players selected won 5 times as many pilfers and penalties at the ruck than the players selected for the Wallabies. Pretty close to the results of this match. I’m pulling my hair out as to why the selectors aren’t addressing this!!! If our lineout or scrum win percentage was at 20% of the ABs everyone would be up in arms. Any ideas why???

All Black to the future at Eden Park

Yeh you are right. If White was on he would have competed for the ball in both situations just like he did a number of times last week. Genia just stands with his hands in the air most times. White hasn’t done a thing wrong since coming back. He has probably been our best

All Black to the future at Eden Park

Yeh the poor fella hasn’t done much wrong in super rugby! He finished off the season as one of the brumbies best. Dont think there is much hope for him or McCaffrey :crying:

All Black to the future at Eden Park

True, Samu or McCaffrey are good options too

Great article Nick! What do you think about Wright for LSL?

All Black to the future at Eden Park

LSL has now been the lowest rated player in these ratings in the starting 15 for 3 weeks in a row now… time for Wright

Wallabies DIY Player Ratings from Bledisloe 2: The results

Here’s some interesting figures of the some of the current experienced Wallabies (and Izzy) with the no. of matches and the winning % of the matches they have been involved in:
Kurtley Beale 86 / 59.06 %
Adam Ashley-Cooper 117 / 57.69 %
David Pocock 77 / 56.49 %
James Slipper 89 / 55.05 %
Scott Sio 57 / 52.63 %
Rob Simmons 96 / 52 %
Michael Hooper 94 / 51.06 %
Will Genia 103 / 50.97 %
Bernard Foley 69 / 48.55 %
Israel Folau 73 / 47.26 %
Maybe without Nard and Izzy and with KB and AAC in there is hope :silly:

Barrett: Our attack will click and All Blacks will retain the Bledisloe

Yeh LSL but he is a good second rower but just not a 6. He has got the lowest rating of all starting players on the roars ratings 2 weeks in a row. There was no rating for the saffa game where he played worse! Hope he doesn’t become the new Ned Hannigan

What we know after the Wallabies' stunning Bledisloe 1 win

Great article Wingman, very interesting! Amazing that Fiji has more registered players than Ireland, Scotland or Wales. At 120,000 only just behind NZ of 150,000. Crazy!

The world's most rugby-mad nation - by players per capita

Yeh true, we can all dream cant we! Good to have something a little bit positive for the first time in years though

Nine talking points from Wallabies vs All Blacks

The attack was brilliant! White was the reason behind it all. He was playing like Gregan of the late 90s. Can’t remember the last time I saw a player in green and gold play that well. Still would prefer Wright or Pocock (when fit) to LSL as we didnt win enough turn overs again as shown by the 14 man all blacks 20+ phases. But the attack was just so dam good it didnt matter! A bledisloe and a world cup would make up for Cheikas last 3 years I reckon.

Nine talking points from Wallabies vs All Blacks

O’Connor selection aside, the big thing between the two sides is that the All Blacks have selected Savea, Cane and Todd (on the bench). Three opensides versus our… Hooper!!! It shows how important winning the breakdown is to the All Blacks. All this stupid debate we have about Pooper and the World Champs have got 3 opensides in their team. We can still win but we need to execute perfectly and luck to go our way because they are gona monster us at the ruck.

James O'Connor confirmed to start in Bledisloe 1 as Wallabies make shock change at hooker

Very true. The only ruck stats fox sports has up is pilfered won and penalties won. Would be great to see the others. You might be in the same vein as me peterk – pick teams based on the ruck first then work outwards?

Yeh Speight is the real victim in all of this. Easily the most all rounded winger in oz!

So true. If you can’t look at form from the Super Rugby season what do you go by… the game a player had a year ago when he last wore the Wallabies jersey???

Yeh that’s fair enough. I will have a quick look and pop it up like that

Yeh god knows what he is. His big boot doesnt get utilised too much unless he is at fullback

A statistical look at the Wallabies' wing options

Fair call peterk. Theres only so much to put in 1 article. Then I guess all the figures are still open to the fair argument that many others have made against the ones I put up – it all depends on the teams game plan and how do you compare like for like

A statistical look at the Wallabies' wing options

Cheers humpty. Yeh I was looking at pilfers, tackle busts, kick metres, line breaks etc. But theres only so much you can put into an article before it gets a bit diluted. Just thought a simple focus would be; can they make metres, score tries, make takes, not make mistakes. I will throw up the other numbers in a bit

Come on Peter, we all loved big Dell! Yeh I’m 35 so Mooney was before my time unfortunately

A statistical look at the Wallabies' wing options

Haha true bigdave. Theres not much love for Clark out there! You would swear I wrote that Foley should get a wing spot!

A statistical look at the Wallabies' wing options

True lifestyle I heard that one too. I was just doing a simple analysis off the data on fox sports lab. From what I saw of the rebels I dont need the stats to tell me both maddocks and Mk are liabilities in defence though

Yeh good call Terrence. He had a pearla of a game late in the season on the wing. He has pace, a step, strength in contact, good defence, and has a go in the ruck. Great attributes for a winger. Would love to see him get a whole season there and make a push for the Wallabies next year. His pace and step are better used at wing with a bit of space rather than inside centre
