    Mostly flyhalf, started maybe 2 games at no.12 when they had Hilgendorf I think running at 10.

    Yeah, Mortlock is the best outside centre and Giteau is the best inside centre. Leave Tuqiri on the wing.

    Leave Lote left right out, Gerrard, Mitchell & Ioane are all superior wingers imo

    Mitchell is average and Ioane can be brilliant at times, but doesn't deserve selection. Gerrard is a definite starter.

    Tuqiri has turned out to be quite the dick, but he was one of the best wingers in the world over the past few seasons and one of the few form players for the Wallabies. Dunno if he can rediscover that form, but every other winger in Australia is much of a muchness.

    One of the challenges for the next Wallabies head coach will be to move away from Brumbies phase play, IMO. Won't happen in time for this World Cup with Gregan and Larkham still there, but it can't happen soon enough.

    The Wallabies basically have to go with Gregan at halfback and Giteau at second five, with Larkham at first five and Mortlock at centre. They don't have much choice. The All Blacks, their likely semi-final opponent,.ate Giteau alive at first five. Not that Larkham scares them at first five any more, but that has more to do with Gregan's slow delivery and the Wallabies' poor work at the breakdown.

    Australia could win this group with a B-side.

    think like the all blacks with their pool, both teams could put in a super 14 team and probally win it!
