Question for you Sheek. What do you make of the fact two of the starting Fiji XV were born in Australia? Must really get your goat eh, this exploitation of Australian rugby talent?

Imperfect bonus point win the perfect Wallabies RWC start

It’s 4th chance by my count

Israel Folau set for rugby league comeback

“Conspiracy theory nonsense” in a discussion re IF? Never

Israel Folau set for rugby league comeback

Are you sure of that? It doesn’t consider the option that, had RA not sacked him but IF decided to take his show on the road, RL might have nixxed the idea anyway because they don’t like what he said. RA’s sacking wasn’t the reason for that, it was his behaviour. The same behaviour btw, that saw lots of his personal sponsors pull the plug on brand Izzy.

Israel Folau set for rugby league comeback

We’ll see. Annoyed this morning to watch ITV coverage and read the Sunday Times. You’d have sworn Hodge brought a knife on the field and attacked Yato with it. The first 6 pars of the match report talked only of the tackle and a par later on suggested a different result had there been a penalty try and red.

The faux outrage is deeply conflicted against the silence following Farrell’s repeated shoulder charges. You’d swear the English media had an agenda.

BREAKING: Reece Hodge cited for high tackle

Sad that Stephen Jones found the biggest story out of 3 cracking matches yesterday was “refereeing howlers”

BREAKING: Reece Hodge cited for high tackle

I called that live as it’s such an obvious thing to look for when thrown to the front. O’Keefe was right there and his eyes never looked down to check. Given how easy a call that was it’s hardly surprising he couldn’t police an arbitrary offside line all game

BREAKING: Reece Hodge cited for high tackle

Whoa. That’s amazing

BREAKING: Reece Hodge cited for high tackle

It’s certainly part of a defence Mark. If he leads with the shoulder with his feet planted it’s a different offence than being off balance and going with arms.

I think a yellow would have sufficed and it’s not deserving of suspension

BREAKING: Reece Hodge cited for high tackle

DHP would be like for like I think. Kicking game non-existent for the other 2. I reckon there’s an angle which indicates Hodge bringing his right arm into the tackle and he slips a bit. Think there’s a defence at least

I’m not being facetious but who was our last quick 13?

Rugby World Cup: Five talking points from Wallabies vs Fiji

I think Kerevi is VC so probably undroppable like Hooper. He has flaws but is our single point of difference in the backs bar KB who I’d much prefer to be benched

Rugby World Cup: Five talking points from Wallabies vs Fiji

I think you’ll find JOC spends a lot of time in attack at 12 already.
Nobody would have gone well at 9 with Fijians diving in off their feet and offside unpenalised. Toomua has been decent his last two cameos but he’s not a better 10 than CLL.
No way Coleman is going better than Arnold.
LSL is going well off the bench. Leave him there

DHP was terrific when he came on. Pick him in his best position and bench Kurtley

Rugby World Cup: Five talking points from Wallabies vs Fiji

I reckon that performance from Fiji and that O’Keefe failed to police the offside line or the breakdown might have shaken up better sides than us. Those Fijian runners will break a lot more tackles in this WC

Rugby World Cup: Five talking points from Wallabies vs Fiji

Doesn’t have to be straight. Can be thrown from anywhere not closer to the opposition try line

Rugby World Cup: Five talking points from Wallabies vs Fiji

Beale was Beale – at the heart of our best and worst. Should apply those skills from the bench. I thought JOC was good. Nobody is going to have an easy night defending those boys in space.

DHP was very good off the bench with some lovely touches and tackle busting.

LSL was good I agree but maybe that tells us that off the bench for impact is his best role?

VOTE: Wallabies DIY Rugby World Cup player ratings vs Fiji

Agree completely but who is that winger? If we judge a winger on speed, evasion, finishing, defending, positional play, high ball catching and kicking, where is the winger with that package?

What's the pass mark for the Wallabies at the World Cup?

You can but it’s a matter of opinion and I, for one, don’t agree

What's the pass mark for the Wallabies at the World Cup?

That sounds fine but we’re ranked 6 in the world so it’s OK to be realistic. Make the semis is a pass, make the final a credit, win it a distinction. Other teams may set different targets but there’s only really 3 who think winning it is a pass. Ireland and Wales would be happy to make the final I’m sure after never doing it before.

Can you name 10 players who would improve the squad please?

Agreed

No walkover for Wallabies as Fiji prepare to flex forwards muscle

One of my most surprising and pleasurable moments in recent Bledisloe matches was Kurtley owning SBW with a huge hit. So unlikely

Bloody outrage to find there are two Australians in the Fijian side. This Pacific Island rugby poaching must stop
