    I think that's a given. It was really ever only a faux sacking of Beale!

    Gee, now we will get to see just how bad Hooper is without having Pocock around to make him look slightly better than Perth Club rugby material..

    So Cheika is a liar! He said Beale was dropped because of form, when really he was ruled out for bring a girl back to his room! (wonder what Beale's girlfriend thinks about that?) Maybe a leopard doesn't change its spots???

    AAC shows the true value of his contribution to a toxic environment! Or is he always one of the instigators???

    fortunately Pocock is ruled out (and I only say that for his well-being!)

    This episode will have a wonderful effect on team moral!

    Shades of 4ish years ago???

    AAC and Beale breaking team protocols. Whodathunkit. Where's AACs mum to defend her boy? Why has Hooper knifed Kurtley this time while defending him over a far more egregious dog act before?

    This entire fiasco s just bizarre. It was the night of the Wales Test loss. The rats squealed TEN days later, after the Italy game, in which both AAC and Beale played. Cheika then LIED to the entire world that Beale was dropped for poor form, zero explanation about his chum AAC.

    Now we have TWO wings on the bench, neither of whom can take a high mark or kick. A wing at full back. A slow full back on one wing, a small 10/15 on the other. An inside centre at outside centre, another inside centre at ten with an actual ten at inside centre. Go figure. Oh, and Lightweight Samu at eight. Yikes.

    Wallabies at an all time low in performance, reputation and regard. Coach has totally lost the dressing room, and has imploded.

    Surely, surely the RA has to take action.

    They had to do this after the Longstaff review got out of the press.

    SB - how do we know the rats squealed 10 daysí later? They could have done it immediately but it was swept under the carpet until someone leaked it to the media for publication at an advantageous time.

    As indiscretions go, this one seems at the very low end. Is the timing of the release designed to psych out the Poms? I think the Wallabies and the whole organisation have sunk so low that the leak could have been totally and utterly calculated and orchestrated.

    I see discourse in the dressing room amongst the ( senior) players. Perhaps staff and coach trying to keep a lid on it .....but failed .

    They are too dumb to do that.

    That's what was reported Ali, by several pRAvda cadets including Descent

    Whether it's the truth is anyone's guess. The whole farce stinks worse than ten day old fish wrap, either the ranks are totally split, or the coaches and staff completely ignorant of squad behaviour (lost the dressing room), or there is way more to it. My guess it's all three, and the story we've been fed is a fabrication. That's easy, seeing as Cheika has already admitted lieing about Beales non-selection.

    This isn't less than the last episode. That's what they are trying to portray. The fact that its AAC and Beale (so experienced but flawed), that the senior players swept it under the carpet until after Italy, that Hooper had to approach Cheika instead of Cheika knowing.about it, the lies, the fact it's before this Test against England which every Aus fan, players and admins KNEW was the single biggest game of the year bar ABs, makes me wonder just how far this "team" has strayed from reality. Way more distressing than the lads having a drink the night before their day off

    Brought a lady back to his room?! Oh dear, I wonder if this will be the new "singularly the most difficult thing I've ever had to deal with" for Raelene?

    Well, that was dismal. England cunningly let in a try after the siren to make the scoreline JUST respectable enough to not have every pundit baying for blood, and keeping Cheika in for the RWC.

    There was ZERO intent to the attack, it was just a bunch of solo efforts. No misdirection, no running lines, decoys, sleight of hand, dummies, Nothing.

    The defence all over the shop, players running around Willy Nilly. If not for a long range Hooper effort to wrap up JoeC on the line it would have been 50 for the Dart.

    The usual smorgasbord of forward passes, dropped ball, aimless kicks, loose carries.

    Just woeful.

    On the flipside, Farrel shoulder on Rodda was a penalty try, a yellow and possibly red. Disgraceful effort by Peyper. Similarly the forward pass referred by the tv replay and crowd. Pathetic. Clearly forward, but both Peyper and touchie were right there, they should have seen it or asked the TMO. Just crap all round.
