    Think this'll be the Taffs'. They've named their best available XV, so it obviously matters to them.

    Be interesting to see if the Wobblies do likewise.

    Welsh have got something to prove, I suppose.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Yeah, the Welsh have to prove that they would have been competitive against NZ had they got their desired result against France.

    Wallabies have named our best backline of the tournament. Week too late.

    Congrats to Nathan Sharpe who gets his 100th Cap.

    I assume Beale is back, any other changes?

    Roberts should enjoy running at Barnes -Barnes is a good defender but not really an intimidating chap.

    IMO thats a better Australian side than the one they put out last week (taking aside the front row). Guess its nice to see both sides fielding strong line-ups - sometimes theres a tendency in these matches to make major changes.

    Yeah, will be interesting having two centres who can actually pass the ball.

    Still to see AAC pass the ball tbf. At least we'll get to see if Barnes is the great 'foil' that Cooper has needed all this time.

    Course it couldn't be the ****house tactics Deans has instructed Genia and Cooper to play.

    Deans is a crap coach at no point did I want him as the new AB coach. I have disliked him ever since he was a part of the decision to pick leon macdonald sp? ahead of Tana in 2003.

    The only good thing he has done is picking O connor and having faith in him.

    Here is my backline

    Barnes 10
    O connor 12
    Beale 13

    Digby 11
    Some random winger 14
    Ashley Cooper 15

    Reserve Cooper

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    You would think Wales would've been on the receiving end of a belting if Cooper didn't get injured. He actually looked threatening for once in this tournament.
