    He's gone from the Rebels now. I wonder where he will end up.

    Deans gone, McKenzie to replace him tomorrow.

    The Rebels also getting a new coach in Tony McGahan. It's all happening!

    Super Rugby returns to normal this weekend. Last round before the finals.

Agree with the 5/8 selection and I'd like to see Toomua given a shot as I think we just get too much stupid with Cooper. Don't believe I even know Foley and Vunipola to give them a go. Hopefully we can send Deans to the same place as Arthur. Needed doing a while ago. I wonder why rugby is so wedded to failure? Congrats to the Lions but it was close eh? Better make sure next time and come back as the British, Irish and French Lions.
    he. Vunipola is the prop for the lions. But seriously he could probably play 10 better than JoC. Foley is the Tahs 10 and has been very good this year, has a wicked step and has got the Tahs backline going forward.

    Vunipola Fair enough. I thought he may have someone showing a bit of form in club rugby running around for Eastwood or Warringah or something.

    Think he'll follow Sonny Bill & Brad Thorn into the ABs in due course. Definitely has the kicking game for union.

    Mildly odd timing tho, what with the RL WC in a few months.

    Didn't he lose the Kiwi captaincy? He's disillusioned with the way his career is going.

    Emphatic win by NZ last night. Cruden was superb, and I thought Luatua was phenomenal in his first start. Error-ridden performance by the Wallabies - Mogg in particular had a shocker.

    Australia were terrible - some of their mistakes were literally under 12s stuff

    ABs were clinical as a whole whilst Cruden was exceptional

    Time to rename the Wallabies, the Rubbish. Absolute garbage.

    It is a test of our depth! But I rate both Taylor and Slade (despite the latter's injury-proneness), so I think we should be OK.

    Australian backline interview question

    1. Are you willing, at every conceivable opportunity, to send a meaningless midfield kick straight down the throat of the opposition?

    If answer is "yes", proceed to 2

    If answer is "no", who are you and what the **** are you doing here?

    Australia played well for a while, but boy what's happened to their attack since the Lions tour? Obviously with McKenzie taking over, you'd expect a bit of rustiness but not as much as has been shown across these past two Tests.

    Will be very interesting to see how they go against the Springboks in a couple of weeks. Any Aussie fans already regretting McKenzie's appointment over Jake White?
