Who wins the John Eales Medal?

As I cast back my mind over the last 12 months of internationals, quite aptly, the phrase “nobody is perfect” comes to mind. That phrase, of course, is synonymous with John Eales and for good reason. This then makes me think of the upcoming John Eales medal award.

it is a very good jersey

Wallabies unveil new Indigenous jersey but want to attract more First Nations players

there are a lot of good reasons to not support the BLM organisation, the condoning, enabling and even promotion of violence against innocent people chief amongst them for me

just proves you cannot trust sarfu , their word means nothing, dishonest and deceitful

Rugby Australia cops another financial hit

jeznez – nor do nz coaches ie have video at all levels, but they teach the players what to look for and coach scenarios of how to get away with stuff.

In grained , i.e do anything to win, to gain an advantage.

Other countries had to follow suit at intl level to have a chance.

williams certainly favoured ab’s though, he wasn’t consistent at all.

but that could be a reason u never rose that high!
also systematiclly means the coaches, the analysts everything.
Did your coaches study what infrinegments u could get away with and then practise these at training?
Not just you but the whole team, coached in what they can get away with.

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

no aussies just have too much of fair play in them, you know the saying give them a fair go.

It goes against their grain to systematically infringe.

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

all teams do but this is an area I believe AB’s put more effort into than any other team.

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

if a player is lying in the way the wallabies should run over the top of him and make sure it is obvious he is in the way instead of avoiding him and running around.

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

I just hate cynical infringing thats all.

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

Ben – rubbish.

The truth hurts you though re the amount of cynicism is the AB’s play.

Also point out 1 post I have made that is the only way they win.

AB’s won because they were better and smarter, the rugby nous in the wallabies is very low. AB’s are systematic and doing whatever it takes to win and they have incredible depth.

Gardner was consistent but he is a poor referee for the number of critical simple errors he makes like missing Savea’s offside tackle on the line, the blatant errors last week.

ab’s systemically study and practise what infringements they can get away with.

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

yes, but did I ever say WB’s didn’t get away with stuff in a free for all?

White is one of the few with rugby nous and one to take advantage of referees letting things go in the wallabies.

Hanigan wasn’t a lazy runner though , he was a decoy runner / blocker that AB’s have mastered.

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

it was a terrible kick, showed panic and a total lack of situational awareness or rugby nous.

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

yes it is almost a free for all at the breakdown, suits the ab’s

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

No but the worst one with Savea off side and cynically tackling the guy just on the line was the worst miss both in terms of how blatant and impact. A YC every day.

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

Kiwi’s like refs that let things go, it suits the tempo they like to play AND AB’s are the world’s best che@ts so take better advantage of any leniency the refs allow.

Refs that are stringent bring the AB’s back to the fold.

How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

That was a shocking offside tackle, and yes deserved a yc.

It is one thing Gardner ignoring the breakdown but ignoring such blatant offside just shows how much off his game he is coupled with his crucial errors as touchie the week before.

you ignore the changes NZ made, in fact 2 of the changes had the biggest impact and beat the most tackles.

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

Kicking against the AB’s is fine if you kick it out OR have a straight line defense and kick it deep into a corner with chasers.

If I did start Hodge it would be at XV where Banks outside the highball catching has not shined.
FB is Hodge’s best position, he is just a fill in centre or wing from the bench. Better winger than centre even.

it will be interesting if players from o/s will be recruited and if players outside the original squad will be brought in.

Largely it has been negative press to lower the price and get rid of castle.

Only picked up when she resigned.

If the bids are comparable you cannot reward Fox and sign with them.

CH 9 advertising would have more penetration that the few positive articles the newspapers give them anyway.

Nine reportedly enters rugby broadcast frame with bid for TV and streaming rights

Also looking at how out of shape the attack went when Toomua was injured, and considering he went into the game with that niggle (why he wasn’t kicking) it was a big mistake by DR to not have Lolesio or Simone as cover on the bench, it just didn’t work with Paisami moving to 12.

Now Simone should start IMO, then Lolesio or Harrison should be on the bench.
