That’s a long way from being true Jacko, the Spring Tests coverage being locked in last minute happened every year with Fox (and bein Sports)…

Good on you Gatesy, I reckon yours will be a common feeling at the moment. Good times ahead for rugby..

I’d imagine they’ll ramp up the week of, BF…

How many of them were in line to replace Read or McCaw, Jacko?

Peter gave a not-unreasonable opinion on a speculative article. Yet somehow Peter’s comments were the cause of the outrage, and not the article, or dare I say it, the possibility that the player might be out of line if this was their thinking?

Nah, it was a misdirected over-reaction by many…

Yes Ed, hence the need to get a proven All-Blacks killer into the Homebush area…

Muz, apart from Cane this year, who hasn’t been able to get into Australia in the last two seasons?

The Thursday rugby two-up: Spring Tour hopes and dreams

Apparently. His ability to defend in the front line despite needing a walking frame is chronically underrated…

The Thursday rugby two-up: Spring Tour hopes and dreams

Maybe not that big… 😁

And Cooper is still only 33!

You’d think both of them left Australia on their 30th birthdays 15 years ago, by some comments!! 😛

I won’t believe Wales is a certainty until the final whistle is blown!

Hopefully it’s the rocket for the required extra yards being put in from here..

Rugby Australia faces rival bid from USA to host 2027 World Cup

It’s the ever-present balance RT – giving players the chance to shine, while also giving other players the chance to put their hands up..

FOH, Stan have the USA-NZ game listed for this weekend, so they might be working on other ABs fixtures as I know they are other Wallabies games too..

It’d be like a great entree to Christmas, Chookosaurus… 😊

Carlin, I have enjoyed the lengths so many many of us have gone to to avoid naming one players – panelists and commenters alike!! 😂

The Thursday rugby two-up: Spring Tour hopes and dreams

And Matt Taylor’s knowledge of norther defences, too, Mused…

The Thursday rugby two-up: Spring Tour hopes and dreams

Exactly my thoughts, LS.

I’m sure Skelton will give everything, but is playing for Australia still a primary motivator for him?

Don’t know. Happy to find out..

The Thursday rugby two-up: Spring Tour hopes and dreams

Could you relocate to Australia, please Carlos? Specifically the Homebush area in Sydney… 😁

The Thursday rugby two-up: Spring Tour hopes and dreams

Like your thinking, Oz.

Why not Wales too, they used to be Australia’s bunnies!! 😁

The Thursday rugby two-up: Spring Tour hopes and dreams

JD it’s curious to me that NZ have had more trouble replacing Read than they did replacing McCaw…

The Thursday rugby two-up: Spring Tour hopes and dreams

Puts even more emphasis on the outside defence, doesn’t it..

The Thursday rugby two-up: Spring Tour hopes and dreams

Also, best celebrations by a country mile… 😛
