Place kicking not a strength for the wallabies then. Three different kickers missing three kicks in a row

I could see Aus putting up a substantial score in these last 15

EDIT: Not if we murder simple opportunities like that though.

They have but that disintegration has been due to calmer wallabies imo, at least exploited by a calmer wallabies

Agreed - Australia had a huge advantage in the scrum and maul in the first half, and they just made the decision to cut the **** out that was around it.

Yato going off made a big difference too.

Yato was immense while on.

BB - Foley is a horrid goal kicker of late, he was ice at 2015 but since his success rate is about 70%.

Glad to have that one out of the way and in the bag. Sweaty palms after the intercept to start 2nd half.

Genia seemed to be a calming influence, first involvement was an exit from the 22 with a box kick deep to touch, ensuig lineout series led to first rolling maul try.

Fiji so fun to watch. Radradra a beast. Yato brilliant, hope hes not seriously concussed

Lynagh just said Genia's the most capped Australian scrum half. Gregan must be ahead still, surely?

Dallaglio reckons Hodge should've got a red for his tackle on Yato. Looks bad in slomo, but I wasn't jumping up and down at the time.

ITV putting plenty of air on Hodge tackle on Yato in first half saying should have been red...hard to argue when seeing it in slow mo...result being that Hodge bounced backwards probably saved him

Disappointing result for Fiji who were the better team. Wallabies assisted over the line by scoring winning points against an undermanned Fiji. This group of Wallabies, players to staff are such an irksome pack of arseholes they will convince themselves they were the better side. Next game against Wales should deliver to the wallabies the absolute belting they have been begging for and which I can’t wait to see. Hopefully they’ll be eliminated at the earliest possible exit. Only then can rugby here begin to critically look at itself and clean out the ranks - players, staff, management - the whole scurvy lot of them. Not that I’m confident they’d admit it to themselves even then.
