I mean, he’s played the position once before for the Wallabies, so it’s not completely out of the ether for him. Having a good boot on him doesn’t hurt either. I reckon his best spot is 12 or 13 though.

James O'Connor injury forces major Wallabies shake-up in team for Bledisloe 3

The bloke who’s starting at five-eighth is a triple premiership player, so maybe win one of them?

Very stiff on Yeo and Finucane that they’ve not even made the 21.

Hodge is definitely the back-up FH – Rennie said he’s been doing some training at 10 over the last week or so.

Yep Rennie confirmed he’s the back-up there. Has been training a bit at 10.

Mate, all the wonderful comments here are testament to just how valuable your contribution to The Roar has been. Go well, and get to work creating a nom de plume sharpish!

Welcome competition in the rugby broadcast rights race - and a farewell, for now…

Gould was pretty embarrassing, wasn’t he?

Four talking points from the NRL grand final

Yeah this is outstanding stuff, Kman

Yeah, clearly no need for such a large group now with fewer games and weeks off in between matches.

What changes are on the cards for Rennie's Wallabies in Bledisloe 3?

On the squad size, Rennie indicated on Friday they’d be sticking with the 44 players picked and not filling the last two spots.

Kicking game was really poor this week, wasn’t it Corne? Didn’t learn from those early runs made by Barrett and Clarke and kept giving them the opportunity to run it back.

I think that’s a very valid point Loosey, in much the same vein as the way they kept the game close before halftime.

I thought Banks was pretty good Bobby. Was good under the high ball when a lot of other players were struggling

Just added it to the article Jez, but Rennie mentioned Gordon’s better kicking game as one reason for him getting the nod there.

Because NZR has engaged in tit-for-tat about these minutes. Hell, right before he said the above, Impey said:

“The notes that have been published are not board minutes and have got a fundamental error in them as far as we’re concerned that says the six-week draw was agreed by all. I can tell you it wasn’t. We know that and Rugby Australia and Sanzaar know that because we kept telling them right up until the time they announced the draw.

“The notes also quite clearly refer to an impasse and there are many emails that prove this. So our position has never changed.”

It’s like saying “I’m not going to wear a red shirt today” moments after pulling on a bright red shirt.

That’s cool Jacko, I’m not surprised with your reaction either 👍

There were a few eyebrow-raising quotes from Impey yesterday, weren’t there? My favourite has to be “Having said that, our focus is trying to get this TRC issue sorted and we’re not going to bother to engage in tit-for-tat on so-called notes which weren’t minutes and weren’t board minutes either.”

Outstanding track

As South Africa head north, Australia and New Zealand must remember they're better together

Cheers Chook. Yes, it’s all part of the game, isn’t it? Each country is always going to do what they think is best for them – and ultimately you do have to look after yourself first and foremost. However, ultimately it’s in New Zealand’s best interests for the game to be strong in Australia and vice-versa.

Uh huh. And I trust you have ample evidence that McLennan is a dishonest puppet?

Oh I’m not saying the Moondogs are going to be that team which plays against Australian sides. More just the point that RA have already eyed off bringing in a team from Japan.

Those deals are obviously crucial JD, but given the diplomacy by soundbite that’s going on at the moment, being an accomplished media performer is a pretty important part of the job for McLennan.

Yes Japan is an obvious third partner for ANZ – let’s not forget there was a lot of discussion about getting the Sunwolves into Super Rugby AU as a sixth team.

Cheers Paul. I think you sum it up quite succinctly by saying “all I want is a competition I can watch which is both entertaining and enjoyable.” Not many would disagree with that.
