    Fair enough, I posted it because I couldn't see a qualifier.

    Scots at $8 at the TAB. Interesting that this is the only quarter-final that is being treated as a given, no-one is discussing it in the manner that the others are being debated. I hope it's not a Japan/South Africa headline once the weekend arrives.

    I got some humble pie to share Gigs... I am eating it slowly.. I think Beale has been given to a Sub and she has had the whips and chains out and he has definitely stepped up.. Just hope he can continue ith his good behaviour... Hooper also deserves and small pat on the back.. A brain fart in the English game but still given his all... Good selections but don't put QC on the bench to replace Beale..

    LONDON: It must be almost impossible to satisfy Wallabies defence guru Nathan Grey as he finds new ways to reinforce the Australian brick wall for their clash against Scotland on Sunday (Monday AEDT).

    Just six days after the one of the most courageous and gutsy defensive efforts in Wallabies history - and boasting a side that has leaked just two tries in the tournament - Grey wants the players to rise to a new tackling level in a World Cup quarter final.

    The Wallabies are still nursing some battered bodies after their superb tackling display against Wales last weekend, where they somehow survived seven minutes with just 13 players on the field.

    Experts have lauded it as one of the greatest defensive performances of any Australian team as they held up Wales across the try-line four times and refused to wilt under pressure.

    But Scotland pose a new threat and Grey says anyone still replaying the effort against Wales will be caught out by a Scotland team capable of scoring from anywhere.

    "It's not so much freshening them up. The guys are very good mentally," defence coach Grey said.

    There is a real clear understanding that we will need a better defensive effort going into the knockout stages of the tournament that we're in.

    "The guys have been training really well and we need to keep improving in each session."

    It's hard to imagine a better defensive performance than that the Wallabies produced against Wales.

    Australia may have leaked just two tries, but Scotland have shown their attacking potency, scoring 14 tries in their four games.

    That leaves them three behind the Wallabies' try-scoring tally, but Australia also had an 11-tries-to-nil rout against Uruguay.

    In overall points, Scotland (136) is just five behind the Wallabies (141).

    From the same article:

    The Wallabies will name their team on Friday (Friday night AEDT) with coach Michael Cheika sweating on the fitness of injured duo Israel Folau and David Pocock.

    Folau is expected to be ready to take his place at fullback after nursing an ankle injury for the past two weeks while Pocock is being given as long as possible to recovery from a calf injury.

    Matt Giteau, who will play his 100th Test, has ticked all the boxes in his recovery from a concussion and has shown no lingering symptoms in his return to training.

    Kurtley Beale and Ben McCalman loom as the men most likely to fill any holes if Folau and Pocock are unable to take their places, while vice-captain Michael Hooper is expected to make his comeback from suspension at openside flanker.

    Crazy thought I know, but maybe not getting carded might help.

    I think, given the recent form, that is the best team we can name for this game.

    Cheika will be saying that nobody is being rested, but Floau and Pocock could do with the extra week

    I think you're right.
    We have coverage in those positions. Beale has been playing well off the bench & macalman is more than capable. Indeed he has been waiting for his chance to start.
