If Australia win the World Cup and defeat the All Blacks and/or South Africa on the way, i think that'd be enough to prove they most certainly aren't a poor test side.
When Australia have a scrum I'll respect them.
Wouldn't know... The Aussies refuse to engage.
Smarter though, and refs just aren't willing to ping them.

"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
Quotes from The US Office:
Dwight Schrute: In the wild, there is no health care. In the wild, health care is, "Ow, I hurt my leg. I can't run. A lion eats me and I'm dead." Well, I'm not dead. I'm the lion, you're dead.
Michael Scott: [trying to motivate an employee for the basketball game] You'll be like the dwarf that follows the wizard to the end of the earth in... uh... Lord of the Rings!
Dwight Schrute: Gimli.
Michael Scott: ...NERD. That's why you're not on the team.
Lets be honest - youd struggle to name an average Australian scrum, the current one is an absolute embarrasment!!!

When the last time Australia had a good scrum though, during the last World Cup the scrum was a joke too and they still won games. If Australia is a poor Rugby team, what does it say about the rest of the sides in World Rugby outside NZ and South Africa. Its not like any of the rest are much better, if at at all.
