A rugby game isn't a matter of life or death. It's much more important than that.

Not really. Neither are used much so they aren’t great options. The shorter Hanigan, Wright and Samu are all actually better line out targets.

All quicker up and better hands in the air just due to practice.

I think especially as a 6 he needs to fill out a little more.

Right now as a test player he’s stuck in no mans land. He’s neither quick and skilful, nor physical.

He has the smarts to be a good player but I don’t think that alone is enough at test level.

That’s the issue with covid capacity restrictions. Can’t afford to sell the cheap seats.

The Wrap: If rugby could turn back time…

Harry saying the creation of the Melbourne Rebels was the biggest disaster and waste of resources ignores that creating them brought a 20% increase in their TV Rights share.

If you want to accurately consider the cost of the Rebels, you have to accurately consider the income they brought to the ARU over a decade also.

The failure was creating them on a horrible commercial agreement that saw the ARU take all the liability but none of the control. Thanks JON. His poor commercial agreement ensured that the Rebels cost the ARU more than they needed to.

Smith has an ability to control the game that probably hasn’t been seen consistently since Lewis in State of Origin in the 80s

Cameron Smith becomes the GOAT if Storm clear Panther challenge

SA didn’t even speak to many European based players about participating.

They clearly did not do everything

Underdone Argentina postpone Waratahs game

RO part of the issue is that incidents such as David Dungay happened and were not treated as a big deal by the media, etc.

The Wallabies taking a knee is a matter of conscience

Well said Chris

Agreed. I admire Hooper as a player more as he has much more natural ability. But I respect Pocock more given that so much of what he achieved was based solely on his own hard work and commitment (that’s not to say Hooper doesn’t work hard, we all know he does work incredibly hard – some of it just comes a little more naturally for him).

David Pocock calls an end to his spectacular professional rugby career

Stepped away reasonably quietly, with little fanfare. Fitting of a man who had much more to his life than just rugby.

Great wallaby and a great ambassador for Australia rugby. Probably never a completely naturally footballer, but a dedicated trainer who really developed his game over his career due to his commitment to excellence.

😂 😂 😂 oh man that is so savage Carlos

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

Nah it’s not. Some things are facts. They aren’t in dispute.

Thanks for a completely inaccurate and baseless conspiracy theory

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

I don’t necessarily blame SMH. They were just reporting what NFJ said on radio.

Or we could just say that it’s not really doable to do that particular example in Australia due to the specific difference with our indigenous culture, but do all the other much more meaningful things such as changing the flag, moving Aus day, etc.

When opinions are based on stating what “facts” are, then yeah, they have to have the correct facts if they want to state them.

Except that’s not exactly accurate.

You are one third owner, but you are one third of the product. If you’ve failed to provide your third of the product, why should you get one third of the income of it?

It’s almost like you are 3 partners at a law firm, but one partner has decided they are going to not bother billing any hours, but still expect one third of the income from the other two.

The quick questions: Blame games and compensation claims

Nothing wrong with them leaving. Just not before a tournament they agreed to play in

The quick questions: Blame games and compensation claims

If highlighting that you feel not all people are treated equally in Australia is divisive then it sounds like we have big problems in Australia.

Also got stripped by a halfback though

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

I haven’t agreed with them all Jez but I understand why he’s made them.

Pm I think he’s more suited to 12 now.

Agree he was a great fullback or 2nd fullback winger when he was younger but he’s just not as quick as he once was.

Rob I kinda do have concerns about his “defence”.

He can be a brilliant tackler but his defensive positioning can be lacking at times

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

Yeah. Watching the tests it seemed like JOC was playing 12 but standing at first receiver more, and Toomua playing 10 but being second receiver
