    If you are going to play Hooper at 7 then you need Fardy at 6.
    He is going overseas, that would be it.

    Hooper would be a damn good centre. He and Billy Meakes would make a fine pair.

    We can then get a bigger back row that is also more competitive at the ruck.

    And my solution for the backs is one I've mooted before - Larkham should do to DHP what was done unto himself - convert him to flyhallf. Looks as though Folau is there to stay at 15, and we do have some competition amongst the Fijian clan on the wings,.... I reckon DHP'd make a great 10. He's got all the skills - distribution, taking the ball to the line, kicking....

    From ABC News

    Wallabies' loss to Scotland shows Australian rugby losing appeal after decade of calamitous administration
    By Offsiders columnist Richard Hinds, 19 June 2017

    It is easy to kick a sport when it is down, but you don't have to put on the steel-capped boots when considering Australian rugby.

    Those running the game sport a pair of size 32 clown shoes with which they constantly kick themselves in the shins. That is when they're not throwing pies in their own faces.

    ...

    But it has become impossible to separate the plight of the Wallabies from the serially catastrophic management of the ARU, an organisation that could no longer be entrusted with running a local T-ball team.

    ...

    In the meantime, perhaps the one thing the ARU has got right is to stage Wallabies games on Saturday afternoons, including next Saturday's encounter with Italy.

    Not because that has attracted big crowds to watch the Wallabies, but because in prime-time there was a real danger more people would have seen them.
