    We did play well [MENTION=2357]Rego[/MENTION]. Loved the fluidity and offloading. Waves of attack. Just dominated possession and territory so Australia couldn't get a look in. Read and Barrett were the standouts

    Aus made us look good really. I'm not saying we played bad but certainly wasn't anywhere near a complete performance.

    Yep they did, Cane was actually my MOTM though, kid was everywhere - which is a first :p doesn't bode well for Ardie unfortunately. Probably keeps Cane as a starter for another 10 games.
  3. Fiery GR Smith

    Well apart from shelling his first touch of a ball, yeah Cane played really well.

    I dunno if Kara Pryor registers on the AB selectors radar at all, but he was absolutely outstanding in the Mitre 10 game I went to the other night.

    You concerned about the injuries and potential softness in the midfield?
  5. Fiery GR Smith

    Australia must have woeful depth in talent at the moment if they had to bring aging guys like Giteau, Genia, Mitchell and Mumm back.
  6. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Yes and no. Typically after a thrashing like that you'd expect the Aussies to bounce back to some degree at least BUT I'm just not sure I see it, not to any great extent. I'm surprised they brought Ioane in tbh, no doubting he's a future All Black potential but hate to see players get rushed too early (he's only 19) - I reckon Proctor would have been a better option, he's so underrated. His awareness is insane and he's really good defensively too, probably a year or 2 too soon for him though too. With all our midfield issues, we certainly do look a bit weak there but they'll hold their own against this Aus team tbh. So not as concerned as I should be.

    Doubt he is yet, 5th or 6th string.

    Hoping Tumanivalu gets another run to beast them. We don't even need to worry about defence too much with this Wallaby side lol
  9. Fiery GR Smith

    Reckon he'll be much higher than that at the end of the Mitre 10 Cup.

    ABs by at least 15 here I reckon. Will be interesting to see how ALB goes on debut. Excited.

    Can't stand these Aussie commentators
  12. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Can you change to an alternative commentary?
  13. Fiery GR Smith

    Another one-sided 20 point hiding but at least the lil Aussie battlers improved from last week slightly.
  14. Fiery GR Smith

    Cheika effing and blinding every time the camera showed him was quite funny. Typical oafish, classless Aussie
  15. Fiery GR Smith

    Argies look really sharp on attack and up 7-0 already.

  16. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Argentina definitely play us the right way, history would show us they can only really do it for 60 mins though. Refreshing to actually see a close half for once though, good fast paced rugby too. We need to tighten up the ruck though ffs.

    Julian Savea playing out of his skin for once too.
  17. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Argentina are probably the 2nd best team in this comp tbf - an awesome improvement we've seen from them since they entered this comp.
  18. Fiery GR Smith

    Yeah very good side these days. Might even be second best in the world. Game on
  19. Rego RS Hutchinson

    Not quite, they would be if they could hold on for 80 with their performance. As predicted AB's blowing out now.

    Doesn't help that Argentina has a shit bench.
