Absolutely ABs have the talent and depth to fight their way back to the top.

I thought Luke Jacobson was very unlucky to miss out and Cullen Grace, Ethan Blackadder are needed also. Ditto Leinart-Brown and Umaga-Jensen.

But ABs also need a new coach imo.

Fozzie is still playing the same attack strategies from the Hansen era. Suicide imo. Opposing coaches work teams out fast so you have to keep moving, changing, progressing to stay on top. ABs are now predictable and so defensive pressure gets more intense. This leads to increase in forced errors. Confidence drops and….the losses mount up.

Fozzie obviously has no new ideas so time for Razor imo

NZ rugby has enough talent to turn this around

Yes Will

Now your 2 mates are out I agree it will be tougher for WBs to win the RC.
They are not losing much with McReight coming in though imo, but QC is a big one.

Of course every team entered in any comp always has a possibility of winning.
Odds of WBs winning the RC have now probably dropped from 100:1 to 150:1.

WILL GENIA: How Wallabies should react to Quade shocker, potential 'superstar' and 'incredible' backrower excel

With your Broken Shoulder I doubt you watch the games 😂

a) Those 3 guys are very capable of a good kicking game but it’s been shelved since Cheika became coach. Poor 22 exits rule now and Pumas were even putting up contestable bombs in their own 22 just like Foley used to do. If you want a great and varied kicking game you pick Sanchez at flyhalf. Notice now he’s been dropped by MC. He did the same thing to Nick White and Quade.

b) What’s MCs single game plan ??? – OMG BS hehehe. Same run it from almost everywhere game plan MC has had forever…. ie when coaching Randwick, Tahs and Wallabies. Same game plan that worked ok for Tahs and WBs for 1 season until opposing coaches work out that’s all he’s got and then demolish it with defensive pressure.

c) Winning 1 last quarter against Scotland does not make a pattern. Let’s see if Pumas can win any last 20 in this whole 2022 series 👍

Mala suerte Carlos

Remember I said Argentina made a huge mistake making Cheika coach. You now have same issues Wallabies had in our Cheika era.

a) Pumas now have no kicking game.
b) Pumas single game plan is predictable.
c) Pumas folded in last 20 minutes.

@Geoff

Good summary again…

Notice 3 things about Argentina now under Cheika ???

a) they now have no kicking game.
b) their single game plan has become very predictable.
c) they folded in last 20 minutes.

Exactly the same issues WBs had in the Cheika era 😂

@Hugh

I’ve got a different take to the 7s results to you.

All pleasure, no pain imo.
Women were great in the 2 games that mattered and who cares about the pool game loss to Fiji.
Aussie men are not one of the big dogs in 7s and did great to make a semi final imo 👍

@TWAS

why would something as common, and normal, as an employment contract be reported in australia’s highly dishonest media

Rugby News: Stewart shocker - Reds ace leaving but NOT for the Rebels, Holloway to debut for Wallabies, Porecki OUT

I ask the terminally uninformed if they seriously suggest any highly paid Aussie pro athlete is working (ie playing) for anyone without an employment contract.

Are you aware that without a contract a player is not legally entitled to anything – ie no $$, no minimum working conditions etc etc.

Are you aware that it is common for sole traders in australia to have 1, or more, contracts running parellel with several employers.

So obviously SK has contracts with both his Japanese club and RA.

Thanks Tim

and you’re not so mad btw 😂 👍

Coach’s Corner: Why Foketi is serious contender after Samu blow, which No.10 gives ABs best shot to beat Boks

The Kerevi disater was RA at its typically stupid and incompetent self.
And it’s rubbish to say Kerevi was repaying a promise.
He’s on contract to RA.
He can promise anyone anything but it’s RA who decides who he plays for, and where.
And Kerevi knows it
WBs are no chance of winning Rugby Championship without Kerevi

@Nick

As expected I say no contest between Paisami and Foketi 😂
I wouldn’t even pick Paisami in the squad 👍

@MO

You obviously don’t understand how contracts work.

It’s in every players contract they can’t work for someone else unless they have permission of the employer. Kerevi knows that and only was allowed to play 7s cos RA agreed to it

Kerevi sends injury scare through sevens camp as Aussie sides reach Commonwealth Games knockouts

@Mo

What’s the relevance of the Olympics to this who cares Comm Games – there isn’t any.
Olympics is a big deal – Comm Games is low level.

We don’t know exacly what was said between 7’s organisation and Kerevi but it always needed RA ok cos he’s contracted to RA.

RA have made another (in a long list) of stupid incompetent decisions in risking Kerevi.
He got injured, Aust failed to win medal. WBs battle Los Pumas without Kerevi and everyone loses 😔

@Cam

You’re in hopeful fantasy land 😛

Aust men’s team missed out on a medal as usual and were never a good chance of getting one. It was crazy RA risked Kerevi for it and now everyone loses.

Australia wins so many medals at the low standard Commonwealth Games most aussies can’t even remember it was staged a week later.

And you and your family are hardly a viable sample size.
Neither am I, but I’d take a series win in Argentina over 10 GOLD medals in Comm Games 😂

@PeterCThird

Hey even if australia won 10 Commonwealth Games GOLD medals I’d swap them all for a series win in Argentina.

And WBs have had problems for 15 yrs. Did you watch how they went in Europe last November without Kerevi.

RA were crazy for risking him in Burmingham 🤢 😔

@TSR

go watch youtube highlights of B Smith’s career..

At same age as J Campbell is now Smith was world’s no 1 FB and stayed no 1 for 5 years.
Jock has not even played 1 Test yet.

Their styles are not similar cos Smith rarely made an error, was fantastic under the high ball, routinely carved teams up in attack, was a great fearless defender, long astute open feild kicker and captained most of the teams he played for.

Jock is good player but can’t do any of those things now. Maybe he’d like to have a similar style one day but I don’t think he’ll achieve it 😂

@Busted

yes and the article reports that Campbell said it also 😂

Rugby News: Kiwi star slams 'hurtful, ridiculous and ruthless' critics, Campbell's ex-AB role model and Thorn 'stitch up'

Which is exactly why I posted a few weeks ago here that RA are crazy for risking Kerevi in this low level tournament where Aust has very low chance of getting a medal.

And even if they somehow got super lucky and Aust snared a Bronze – who cares ??
Chances of WBs beating Argentina in Argentina without Kerevi are low imo 😢

Surprising to me that J Campbell thinks he’s similar to Ben Smith cos I don’t think they are at all.

Ben was considerably bigger, was faster, had better all round skills, made far less errors and was…… at same age as Jock – a much better FB.

If Jock can ever get close to Smith’s quality he’ll have done great but I don’t see any signs of it so far 😛

@Francisco

buena articulo – grasias 👍

How do the Wallabies and Pumas look ahead of the Rugby Championship?

@Lachie

Is there any evidence that a great computer game has made Football more popular world wide – answer is no Lachie.

It might help in australia where Rugby is struggling but I repeat – it’s not needed anywhere else.

I beleive most rugby fans want an ethical sport where public health and mental welfare concerns are more important than making $$ from computer games that keep kids inside and inactive, and not playing the actual sport outside.

Yes I’m old school – a dinasaur from a bygone era when people actually beleived in the public good and ethical conduct 😂 😱

EA Rugby 23: How video games can reignite World Rugby

Hi Lachie

Yours is a classic parochial me me view of the world hehehehe

World rugby doesn’t need video games to be hugely popular. For various reasons we’re well aware of, the code is only in decline in Australia. It’s booming everywhere else.

Yes I agree it would be nice for the kiddies (and you) to have a new video game to play with but I think world rugby has a lot more important issues to deal with atm. Like fixing the rules and creating a well coodinated world Test schedule for starters.

For well documented public health, and mental welfare, reasons I also think sports bodies should be encouraging kids to get outside and play instead of sitting in front of computer screens 😛

Thx Nick 👍

I could have written the whole reply in Spanish but then no one else would have understood besides Carlos 😱

Do you speak Welsh ?? or…………
wyt ti’n siarad cymraeg ???

Why the Wallabies should be taking Argentina very seriously

ok entiendo Carlos 😂

for me being foreigner with good spanish skills the culture was easier to access in Mendoza.

I rode bicycle and walked almost everywhere. Mendoza people more friendly so easier to make friends. Included in my culture also was hiking/mountaineering in Andes. I climbed Acongagua, visited many wine estates. I also danced Salsa con las chicas como mi Tango era terible.

I hope M Cheika learned something during his unsuccessful WB coaching career and he now does great things con los Pumas 👍
