    the last half of Argentina was despite the coaches and systems. Everyone wants to know who got the boys to revert to normal rugby, coz it certainly wasnt Cheika et al. He even admitted as such post match.

FFS this guy is the epitamy of pig headed and stubborn. The wallies have been playing dumb brutish simple Simon rugby for three years now, which is exactly how Cheika played club rugby. His selections are favouritism and bizzare, hes got half the team playing out of position, his defence coach has got the befuddled players playing Russian Roulette trying to cover midfield tackling deficiencies, his attack coach doesnt know who has been selected until the warm-up which shows how stupid he is as everyone else knows who the Usual Suspects. None of the coaches have bothered to look at the opposition and work out systems and plans to nullify their strengths and expose their weaknesses....you know what everyone else in every sport does even at school. The most innovative thing they have come up with is a cross field kick to Izy coz Izy can take a spekky overhead mark. Sheesh.

    This guy has killed off a generation of players, and a generation of spectators. And probably the golden goose of PayTV as well.
    Thats a brilliantly written assesment.

    Nice work

    .... and who gets to not play as a result of Adam Ashley Cooper coming back? It's surprising looking at the team list and the number of ex-Western Force players who were in red hot form last year but now seem to have fallen off the radar. I hope there's room in WSR.

    Speaking of which, I can't understand why Mitch Inman was never given a sniff. Apart from his second season in Perth he was one of Australia's most durable centers and a good operator in the toughest defensive position on the park. Playing his best years in France. Stronger as 4.

    Yup, Inman in France (thus not eligible) when 13 has been problematic due to injuries and form shows everything wrong with stronger as four.

    Four fourks sake

    Just watched a replay of the Asia Girls U18 Rugby 7s, and the Chinese girls have better draw and pass and offload skills than the Wallabies, especially Adam Ashley-how's my beard-careful or my Mum will flame you-ball hog-Cooper!
