My wife ( she’s Japanese) was so worried we wouldn’t top our pool that she ended up getting us the other 1/4 final on the Saturday, as well as the Sunday because Wales are a real threat. I know we have to take care of Fiji first, and that’s no guarantee, but if we can do so then I can watch the Wales game a bit more relaxed now knowing I can watch either 1/4 final day.
It’s getting exciting over here.

How will the Wallabies unravel Warren Gatland’s Welsh web?

32 degrees here in Miyazaki today. Great for surfing, not so for rugby.
I’m predicting the heat to be the All Blacks kryptonite.
SA to win the opener.

My fearless prediction says the All Blacks will win the 2019 World Cup

Nah mate, sometimes you need the hardened older bodies mixed in with the youth. It’s a pity Jordan Petaia got injured before the Samoa game. He could be one we need to step up and show some X factor!
Time will tell!
It’s getting exciting here in Japan with the Olympic qualification surfing in my home town now and England arriving tomorrow. Stinking hot still which I hope the Poms and the Kiwis are loving.
Go Wallabies

David Pocock is ready for the Wallabies but not as starter

Me and my kids and wife have tickets to the Sunday Wallabies QF if they top their pool. If they don’t it’s gonna be a big hassle! Come on Wallabies, I’ll be watching the Wallabies vs Wales game and be so tense I reckon! Time to hit your straps!

Why all Wallabies supporters should be watching Wales vs Ireland this weekend

RIP big Chester!
He sounded like an awesome man!

Springbok World Cup hero Williams passes away at 49

Maybe , but can they handle 30 degrees plus?

How do the Wallabies take down the world’s new No.1 team at the World Cup?

I thought Steven Larkham was going to Ireland? :silly:

How do the Wallabies take down the world’s new No.1 team at the World Cup?

Yes, we do! Usually around 30 typhoons annually and I think we’re only up to around 11 at the moment.
Good for those like me who like surfing! They usually last until the end of October. They could cause some flight and train delays… fortunately the games I’m going to are accessible by car.

Kryptonite ! That being the hot sun of Japan! Hopefully it’s a stinker and that will suit the Wallabies I reckon. I live here in Miyazaki and have played finals in 33 degree days in September.

Perception and reality: The Wallabies and All Blacks scrum from Perth to Eden Park

Breaking news…unless it’s been broken already below… Jordan Petaia sent home for scans on his hamstring… Nooooooo….he must be devistated.
Here’s hoping it’s not a bad one…

I like this quote from Eddie
“At World Cups I pick one to 15 first, then I pick numbers 28 to 31. They are your absolute keys. They are possibly not going to have much game time so the character and behaviour of those guys is super important. Then you try to pick a blend from 16 to 27. So there is a process I follow.”
It makes sense if it works to your plan!

Wallabies name 31-man squad for 2019 Rugby World Cup

That a boy! We have the talent to produce wins! I’ll be there cheering them on! Japan will get behind them too!

Wallabies name 31-man squad for 2019 Rugby World Cup

I think DHP is our test full back! He has great skills and is solid under the high ball. I don’t mind that selection, seeing what Beale did last week. He deserves another shot after the SA game.
Banks will get his shot next year, I just hope he keeps building!

Wallabies name 31-man squad for 2019 Rugby World Cup

Come on Wallabies!
Well, no real surprises really! I got what I wanted in Petaia, but feel for Banks missing out over AAC . Dempsey one of the NSW boys Lucky too.
I tuned in to watch, the stream and it was so sh it and when it cleared up, there was our New Zealand boss, speaking with hardly any energy and that kink of summed up what Aussie rugby is at the moment.
Kind of cringe worthy but it is what it is.
Come on Wallabies!

Wallabies name 31-man squad for 2019 Rugby World Cup

Wow, I can’t wait! There’s gonna be a few surprises, I’m going for Petaia to be my surprise.
Whoever it is, I’m just looking forward to moving on from last week’s disaster and building to the Samoa game.

Revealed: The Wallabies squad The Roar wants to see at the Rugby World Cup

Sometimes a loss going into a finals series is a good thing!
There were still some positives to come out of last night and a whole lot to work on and improve as well.
We didn’t capitalize on our chances in that first 30 and the AB’s did, well done to them, they played awesome.
Over all the Wallabies made some nice line breaks over the course of the evening but we have to work on linking up with a support runner. CLL will be out practicing his kicking, Beale his high balls and Hodge staying deep when running on to the ball.
I thought Tupou, Genia and Toomua played well but Hodge, Beale and Salakai Loto had nights to forget.
I wonder if that was AAC last game for the Wallabies. I know he didn’t get a much of a chance but I’d be blooding Petaia in from the Samoa game as we need speedy wingers with some XFactor. Henry Speight comes to mind as well.
I think we learned a lot from the last few weeks, so onwards and upwards from here!

Bledi hell! Wallabies walloped by brilliant All Blacks

Awesome! I’m looking forward to it! There’s a rugby drama in Japan now that has gained a huge audience.
Great timing for the rise of rugby here in this country. My son is 13 and he’s right into his rugby and perfect timing for his age..
I met Leitch in my city of Miyazaki and he was super nice and just wanted to chat about rugby, surfing and kids. Him and Eddie have done so much for Japanese rugby and I hope they reap the rewards!
Just not against the Wallabies!

Wallabies well poised to double down on All Blacks

I reckon we have enough kickers in the starting team, CLL, Hodge, Beale, White and OConnor, also others are not the worst kickers, even Koriabete put in a beautiful one last week.
I’m hoping hodge can get us some distance for touch in the rain.
We don’t want too many people kicking anyway.

Michael Cheika sticks solid with winning Wallabies, confirms team for Bledisloe 2

Nah, now is not the time to get sentimental! He wants to see if he is in our best 23 and I don’t mind that leading into the WC..

Why do so many people right off Simmons? He has been playing in a losing Wallabies team for the last few years but I reckon he always has a go! He has some mongrel in him. Maybe now that we are going forward, he can show what he has got!
AAC I can understand in the conditions predicted. A bit of experience mixed in with some youth and an experienced defender.
It’s taken a few hours to come around but I actually like this team the more I think about it . We’re are not asking AAC to play 80, just a solid 20 maybe.

A bit slower but a hardened and experienced body. Maybe not a bad choice in the weather that is predicted.
