    ruining a classic.

    minus the first sets. England look lost in attack, all that Aus pressure will tell in the second half will pull away soon

    Just me or were both our tries preceeded by obvious forward passes? Not in that actual play, but in the lead up plays.

    Didn't score off it but Cordner almost went through early and the pass from Cronk was about a metre forward and didn't get called

    I think they got a repeat set after that and scored. First try there was a forward pass during the set I'm pretty sure.

    I think you are right but since we are versing the stinking poms I'm not overly concerned.

    I just can't get into the international game. As much as I try I was more interested in other things tonight even when watching the game. Just no fire to the games.

    weird game, australia dominated possession but didn't seem to gel which could be expected early in the tourney but alot of the back line have played a lot of footy together, so that was odd.


    Looked most dangerous when morgan took the line on, we jsut didn't find the final pass a few times after he created somthing


    dugan, holmes and especially gagai did a heap of good work. I'm bias but i thought klemmer was close to our best, i reckon if you were to pick his 5 best games this years, only 1, maybe 2 would have been for the dogs. always played good solid footy for us but there is more impact in his runs for NSW/AUST, dogs need that from him next year.

    England wingers were awesome, saving tries and also looking hard to stop

    Graham was inspirational, i'm gonna miss that guy


    i also thought the poms looked more dangerous with roby then they did hodgson, both the raider poms were actually pretty meh to me and thats probably been the case all year after they both had huge 2016 seasons

    Agree with the Klemmer stuff - maybe thats why they were happy to let graham go. When Klemmer is the lead prop on the field, he is close to the best player on the park. He is deadset great when he is the first prop doing the hit up. 

    That right winger for the Poms looked excellent hey. 

    Morgan didnt have a great game - but thats understandable considering he was playing on the other side of the field to what he nomrally does. We did look dangerous when he ran it tho. 

    Aus played pretty poorly yet still got up, I expect aus to improve a fair bit though.

    Yeah, agree on Klemmer as well, and the Roby comment LG. Deadset Hodgson looked great in the first 15 but not much after that. When Roby came on I thought he looked past it to begin with but he warmed into the game.

    this is a bit of a bludger, Wales would struggle to beat the Capras playing like this, but the crowd are doing their best to keep the atmosphere up.

    Gee the NZ and Samoa war dances shit all over what the Aus team was attempting. I know it’s different but jeez, the passion in their hakas was tangible through the tv

    Fiji giving USA an absolute bath. Not a great crowd size wise but ya gotta love the Fijians in the crowd just having a blast. Good stuff.
