One look at him suggests he’s an individual (which quality I admire). But I can see that worrying the more buttoned-down types.

Wallabies turn to former British and Irish Lion as forwards coach

I don’t ski and I don’t run. Think there’s some decent wine nearby tho.

Never never never wanted to live there, James.

Yeah given every scrum involves some sort of gamesmanship I’m not to concerned about it either.

The odd thing with Stewart was that he stayed on for a while before he came off the the hia. Maybe just an innocent mixup but I can understand others having a darker view of it.

Ha no, not my taste Bobby. Actually if I’m not spending too much I go for Jameson’s Irish

There will be some frozen water in my scotch but that’ll be the extent of it.

Agree it looked confusing to say the least, as if the officials had got the head knock …

Agree on CFS. I’d prefer to have him than Paisami if it had to be a choice.

Yeah I slightly favour the Refs back 3 but there’s not a lot in it.

Yeah tough on a young player to have a long layoff and come back for a GF.

If he had a good game I think that’s a very strong indicator for his future.

Yes it’s all relative – the ground tends to keep pace with him compared to other players.

Why the Reds have the best defence in Australia

Yes, while they shouldn’t be nervous, if the Brumbies are confident then it’s misplaced.

Much like the mitigated disaster.

Ain’t many left, since poor old Bill Posters was repeated threatened with prosecution. Now HE was hounded out!

I think momentum counts for a lot JD

Yes jez, as does it’s fellow traveler self belief.

Home ground advantage is in the Brumbies’ favour and they’re a quality side but the Reds have learned to hold their nerve and win ugly.

Brums will want to be well clear at the 60 min mark, otherwise we’re in for a grandstand finish (and I’ll be taking a big skol when the commentators say “grandstand finish”!)

Me too James, but he is busy from wing too, and no doubt Reds will look to get the ball in his hands often.

I’d assumed he was posting as The Set Peace

The Wrap: Wallabies take shape but Rugby Championships are far from settled

Geoff, what were the work-ons Rennie gave to Naisarani et al? I haven’t seen any reporting of it.

Yes it’s a cabal! (whatever that is)

How was Cheika hounded out of office by anyone, let alone Roar posters?

Yes, it would be a rare thing to come up with all the “right” answers all of the time.

And it’s a tough lesson to learn, but we Roar posters are (unsurprisingly) not the selectors.

Looking from the outside, I think Hooper and White are the only certain starters who are also in the frame for captaincy. But if Rennie has inked in any of AAA, L Wright, To’omua or JOC for the starting 15 (all justifiable) then they are also contenders. Not keen on a 15 captaining even if DHP is inked in.

Ah yes, forgot MT is injured, if he doesn’t recover in time then the picture changes substantially.

That makes Kerevi and pretty safe bet for a recall.

Agree Jez, unlikely to be more than one more lock, picking Hanigan (no disrespect but I think he’s the least of those locks) tips us that he has plenty of local locks in mind.

I haven’t seen Paisami play 12 at least since he’s been at the Reds. Not saying he couldn’t do it, but I cant see why he’d be picked there for the WBs on speculation he might cut it.

Wouldn’t be surprised at all to see SK picked – SK, JP, MK and PD would be a real handful for the D to contain – that said I don’t think the squad looks thin at 12. One of JOC or MT plus Simone is itself is plenty.
