I don't think Rabs knows the difference between Kenny and Jesse...

Roos really need points to show their dominance...

Gallen just kills the momentum in attack close to the line so often...

Kiwis defence has been brave...

As comfortable as Australia has been I don't think Mal would be that happy...

Pretty average game really. Kiwis have tried hard but don't look like scoring. I think tomorrow night's games might be more entertaining,

They have limited play-making options with Lewis Brown at hooker, Jordan Kahu at fullback and Tohu Harris/Kodi Nikorima at 5/8. They're pretty one dimensional and Johnson has been poor.

Australia has done the bare minimum to get the W.
NZ were kept at arms length very easily.
The Aussie boys have a SOO series starting soon and are looking towards it.
If the NRL want mid year tests they have to halt the competition and let the teams prepare properly.

^^^ I reckon scrap the trials & 9s. Start the season early, play everyone twice, top 6 make the finals, SOO & internationals after the GF.

Rubbish game btw.

Terrible game. These games really need to be played at the end f the year. Boyd, Dugan and Ferguson really had no idea what was going on down the right side. With all the Kiwis being unavailable it was never going to be close.

Terrible game. Aussie should have put 50 on us.

Stephen Kearney should be sacked for not picking Isaac Luke. Doesnt matter how badly he's been playing for the Warriors, he had to be there in front of playing guys who dont actually play hooker. Doesnt Kearney remember what guys like Olsen Filipiana did playing for NZ from reserve grade? He had to back Luke to do the same. Crazy decision.

As for the aussies, well its time to keep one eye on now and one eye on the world cup.

Tedesco fullback when fit

Move Cronk and switch Thurston to half. Bring in a younger halves partner at 5/8, happy with either Milford or Morgan.

Cam Smith is a hard one as there is no obvious replacement for him. Personally i think he is done and dusted, but the only guy i see worth playing at 9 in his absence isnt a specialist hooker, Michael Morgan. If Milford is at 6, I think Morgan could go great at 9, but its a big call to do that. Morgan would go great anywhere though, even centre.

Inglis needs to go too, and no way Dugan is a better centre than Morris, Jennings or Roberts. Oates is more potent than Ferguson and Semi isnt an Aussie.

Woods in for Gallen.
