Hi Swede, IMO, I really don’t think Bender, has lost form, as we know, he’s been one of the better fullbacks in world rugby. So I rekon his playing out of position, winging it, hasn’t helped. Fullback is still his position,

The Rugby Championship non-championship week: Bledis-GO!

Yep moa, as in looking at the squad, I really would have liked to see, Jackson Hemopo, given a go at blind side. He’s got that bit of mongrel, but as it is it looks like Shag will bring him off the bench at some stage. Be interesting.

WHAAAAAT NO BENDER ?????? Yep Brett, bit of a shock, but OK, it’s RWC year, & no doubt Shag’s is not suffering, from some disease, or something. In truth it a good tram, & I reckon that George Bridge does deserve a start. Like Reiko/s fire seems to virtually has extinguished. Seemingly with the result of last weekend, the hordes will emerge in the ‘Garden of Eden’, to watch those in the Dark jersey’s overcome those in the yellow jersey’s. Should be all on, but with the curtain raiser, with ourWahine’s, in the Black Fern’s, hopefully with some returning, should still be a one way street. We watched two thrashing last weekend, let’s see if one jersey can make it two. Show the Mana, do the Mahi, then it will happen.

Go the Black’s.

But the other game will no doubt see Rassie playing some fringe players, seeing he’s already won the Rugby Championship. Well done the Bokke.

Interesting read Brett, & as you say, one win doesn’t make the Wallaby RWC favourites. Yep, true, but as Iv’e been saying, for a while now, I consider, Rassie & his Bokke squad, as the one to beat.

In truth, it’ll be very interesting to see, who Shag, brings in, as no doubt there will be some changes, for what is forecast, In Auckland this weekend. Wet conditions, will possibly not see another high scoring test, due to these conditions. IMO, I would like to see Crotty back at second five, with ALB outside him. Not sure on how bad Goodhue’s injury is, but if he’s available, he too would have to be considered. Perhaps the controversial Blind Side, might see the return of Liam Squire, as from reports, he played the house down, for his province last weekend. Well his form during Super Rugby, certainly, wasn’t anything to write home about, but if he’s returned to the form we know he can play, then bring him on. I do think that Shag will make the necessary. changes, but I can’t see him going overboard. Might even see big Karl back.
They have a record to uphold at Eden Park, as the Wallaby, haven’t won there in 33 years, & even the Bledisloe is now in it’s 16th year of defending. So bring it on, With a good Kiwi welcome to the ‘Garden of Eden’. Show the Mana, AB’s.

What we know after the Wallabies' stunning Bledisloe 1 win

Pretty right there sheek, as the Yanks, have never ever won a major conflict, without the assistance of the allies. We have done the hard yards, & they have come in virtually when the job is done, but their help, in providing the necessary equipment, went a long way.

Sorry that you have trouble understanding, Agent. Like thick as!!!

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Obviously you don’t have many friends, associates, etc in & around Europe as I, as in conversing with them, they too, have an not tp pleasant opinion about French ref’s including a certain Pom. I wouldn’t even say to much about my fellow Irish associates, who, with some, are really heavy involved with the game.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

So Swede shall we just wait till the outcome of this, as I reckon it’s a duty of care situation. That’s why these rulings were put in place, & with the Ref in the middle judicating & right there with the action, I’m sure he would know, or have a pretty good understanding, before any Doctor running on, could assess the situation.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Bottom line Geoff, it is after all a Duty of Care situation

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Got it wrong Swede mate, as the Ref has a ‘ duty of care’! Have you ever heard of it?. In other words, It’s the ref that calls the shots, as to when a player goes down injured, or seriously injured, he doesn’t let play carry on, he stops the game to, attend too, or call help on to assist in the problems. in these HIA decisions, recommending the doctor come on, or sending players, under the stand, It still comes under ‘duty of care’, in which World Rugby, has made those in control responsible, for those under their jurisdiction. It’s common sense.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Sorry that you can’t seem to handle the truth, Agent!! Sad as!!

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Well pray tell me Mate, why in other games, we have seen ref’s referring players to the HIA assessment? It has actually happened.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Hahaha Let the young fellas have some fun Digger, as I myself wasn’t that much of an angel, back in those younger days either. Lol Different thing, if they were bringing the game, itself into disrepute, but as we know, boys will be boys. LOL

Yes but Wayne only held the reigns of head coach in the early 2000’s for a short period

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Ummmm I think many laws have changed since the IRB legend was playing.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

I said I think it was SIO, not completely sure, but he was cleaned out with a neck roll, & I’m not sure what minute. In the first half, from memory. Like Cane has just come back from a pretty serious neck injury, & for Garces, your favourite ref, to not see it, when he was virtually standing right there, was pathetic. As it is, I have noticed in a certain NZ newspaper, there were 14 neck rolls missed by Garces, & that’s overall.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

If you reckon Garces is SO good, then tell us why, he didn’t send Hooper for an HIA after the Barrett issue? Like you say that Garces had best angle, but on that occasion, he had it up on the big screen, to check. Try watching that issue again.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

When was Barnes the world’s best referee? Hahaha, you’re an absolute scream, mate, as if you think that then you are sadly mistaken. try watching a few of the Internationals he’s reffed. Mates of mine in the NH, have even accused him as being pathetic, & acting like a strutting show pony, & I wouldn’t get any of my Irish mates talking about him. Do you even, know, that he’s the only referee, in International rugby, that has handed out the most losses, for when he’s overseeing AB matches? Good isn’t he? So actually, the SA ref’s are really pretty good since the bad old days. Do you remember a certain ‘Dick Byers, that was a Queensland ref back in the day? You know the bloke that was known as Dick Bias?

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Geeez Connor, Yaco has a far better reputation than what Garces will ever have, in fact any of the Frog ref’s have. Mind you it’s nice to know that you already know Shags, plans! Did he tell you? Honestly???

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Gotta agree Suzy, that Rassie has a awe inspiring squad, for the upcoming RWC. IMO, you will be the team to beat.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Not good officialdom Jacko, as my big ask, is why Garces, never sent Hooper for an HiA, especially after how groggy he looked after the Barrett, issue. Then we had the Savea, incident later on, where our great ref, penalised Savea, when Hooper threw a tanty, & retaliated. I always thought it was the second man in, or the final retaliator , that the penalty, went against? Have they changed the ruling? Yeh it wasn’t a great example, being set by Hooper, as he is meant to be the Captain!. I know the AB’s did have discipline problems, as Shag pointed out, but …….

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

I actually think that consistency is the issue, as with both sides, there were high shots, neck rolls etc etc, being let go, by Garces, even when was in a position to observe them. The one that was very noticeable was the neck roll on Sam Cane, by Sio, I think it was, & Garces, was right there. But really, the thing that I thought was bad, was Garces, not sending Hooper for a HIA, after Barrett wss dismissed. Not a good look.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

Well T/man, Squire, is possibly the best at 6, we have, but his form this season has been abysmal. That is one of the reasons he told Shag, no thanks, i’m not ready, to which I personally admire the bloke for taking that approach. If he does come back to the form we know he can play at, I’m sure Shag will reign him in again. IMO, the injuries, have not served him well.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

I wouldn’t say letting to much go, james, but more to the truth of letting a game flow.

The Wrap: Resurgent Wallabies place one hand on the Bledisloe Cup

No taking it away from the Wallabies win, but to be truthful, both ways, there was so many issues the ref missed, even when, he was in position to observe it.
