NZ should have played Foran IMO. He always guns it after a rest.
Payne Haas on debut was very good, I just wonder how he develops. We've seen some massive young props gun it from very early on in their careers but once they lose their mobility by their mid 20's they tend to regress.
Almost the reverse to the conventional wisdom that a prop will grow into their frame and peak in their mid 20's.
Hard to think of a prop at his age though that had such exceptional stamina.
I like Murray but his selection is retarded. Meninga's only loss as Aus coach came last year when Keary got injured after 15 minutes.
Hunt covers the halves. What do you need 4 forwards on the bench for? Tonga's pack is good but as soon as their starting props go off, they'll be exploited. Their edges are poor defensively as well. Playing against a big pack doesnt mean you need to reshuffle your own side when youve already got Haas and Vaughan on the bench.
What’s wrong with Wighton going into five eighth and Murray to centre? Murray can cover hooker, lock, 2nd row and in the centres if one of the halves goes down?
As mediocre as Hunt is, he's a better half than Wighton. The guy really has no creativity. He's just a ball runner. Its not too bad if Munster goes down but if DCE is out, you've then got a 3 man reshuffle with a lock playing centre.
Hunt is a one for one switch for 9, 6 and 7.
I assume Graham would go into the halves before Wighton anyway.
Meninga would be going off what he did in Game 2 IMO and justifying dropping Hunt that way.
Money on Tedesco to score at any time is pretty safe imo. Lolohea is an absolute turnstyle in defence. He's just woeful.
Frizellerini fts is also value.
Id put some on but already got 4500 on the match.
$4500 on Australia +20 doesn't count.
lol there isnt even a market for that but good try.
Wighton better actually do something to justify his repeated selection in rep sides. He's shown nothing in attack and didnt even defend well against a dismal Kiwi side.
Running hard is not enough to be a Test centre.
GB are horrendous.
Staggs named at 7.
Wighton and Cotric have no idea.
Well done Wighton. I guess.
How Is that not obstruction?
They had it so right at the start of the year and it seems to have slipped right off.
You can not run behind a decoy runner. They could use that try as a good training clip for rookie refs.
Holy fuck Munster has some brain farts. How the fuck are you kicking there?
Gerard Sutton showing why he is an absolute flop in that last minute. He just called held on a Tongan player tackling another Tongan player
This is so good for Interntaional Rugby League
