    It was forward with more than a meter Have a look at where the ball start of in relation with the 5meter line and see where it ends up when Drew got hold of it

    A ball can travel forward relative to a fixed point on the pitch and still be legal.

    The video put up by OzFub HERE best illustrates this

    but if it was a good pass then Drew would have scored it but he just kept running never touching it down

    True coach, but any time the ball is caught closer to your tryline than where it left the passer's hand you run the risk of being called for a forward pass......It's pretty much a judgement call at that point.

    Gits was off his game, but there were 14 other players out there (more if you count subs).

    Yeah, rabbit did pretty bloody good when he touch ther ball. I think he only got it once and broke the line for about 20 meters, then offloaded.

    Interesting to note that he looked liek the fastest player on the pith when he got to ball, and he looked like he was running with some enthusiasm.

    Gits was again woeful and should not start against Wales. But he should not shoulder all responsibility. Quade Cooper’s bamby jump may work in schoolboy rugby, but fools nobody at this level.

    Totally agree with you here TG... Quade Cooper over played his hand with that unnecessary pass, when Cross would have walked over and placed the ball in a kickable position... Furthermore the Wallabies should have put the Scots away in the first half... It shouldn't never have come down to the last kick...

    haha, Giteau is our best player out there, without him we would have lost that game convincingly.

    There is a reason he is the only player who never gets dropped or rotated in the squad.

    He is a crap goal kicker but everyone expects way to much out of him.

    Agree, I'm sure Giteau could have nailed any number of the other kicks he missed

    Sure, they were both good AAC had a good game and Giteau set up the last try after the siren.

    I was more replying to this thread of people saying he should be dropped from Australia.

    Giteau loses to Scotland single-handed...
    perhaps... However he has single-handed won more tests than he has lost...

    Unfortunately, that comment sums up Giteau as a Flyhalf, he is an individual "star", not a team player. The limited time Barnes has had at Flyhalf this year has been better than all of the time Giteau has been gifted.
