    Nah the test was booked at 8pm kick off a year ago. The Socceroos match was at 1pm in Russia, 11am in France. It's all about Europe tv times nothing to do with pleasing Australian audiences.

    It looks like the ground was pretty full as well, well done Melbourne, pretty much filling a 25000 seat stadium!

    There was a low 19,000 number put up as the crowd figure on channel 10.

    Does this mean the Force v Fiji had a higher crowd attendance than the national team playing in the second largest city in Australia.

    Wow way to go ARU.

    They must haven't counted Imperium Unit Trust holders in the figures.

    They must have counted Irish supporters though, otherwise there would have been 12 k
