Midfield Marriage?

Some old, something new ... something eternally borrowed and unfortunately Blue.

Brilliant Lu.

I think Toeava has more utility tag and experience than Sonny Bill Williams. Don't forget the experience and combination of Nonu and Smith. SBW will get some game time against Scotland.

Agreed, Scotty. I must say I am not an irrational hater of Toeava's ... its just that when the squad was announced I could hear the screams of "f**k no!" from a mate of mine, all the way from London! He did have that blinding effort last season to set up a win, and the guy is pretty humble. A missing point from the SBW argument: to get on the park he has to replace either Nonu or Smith. I agree that's big shoes.

Slugso - what a prophetic post. Toeava and poor old Stephen Donald let us down big time today. I really felt for Donald though - I could hear the collective screams of every All Black supporter across the world cursing his name. It's hard living in Dan's shadow. But what was that kick at the end?

Another great game though and the Wallabies deserved the win because they came back and didn't give up. Their back three are exciting to watch and always dangerous. Kurtley Beale and James O'Conner are going to break more New Zealand hearts in years to come I gloomily predict. Is Giteau the most overated Wallaby? He came off the pitch and the game turned around.

Maybe this loss has come a good time for the ABs though. I thought it was on the cards when I read a very gloaty (how unusual she says with tongue firmly in cheek) on Stuff the other day about Jimmy Cowan saying that the Wallabies don't talk themselves up anymore because they have no right to. I thought yes - time for our pride to take a big fall.

Good players for me - Cowan, Reid, Jane. Dan looked smooth after injury and Richie is still the man. Bad games? Obviously Toeava - how many more chances can this man get at international level? For years he has proved he really can't handle it on the world stage.

Roll on England next week. I can't wait!

Donald, my god what can you say. At least he ballsed it in a dead rubber rather than a World Cup. Aussie probably deserved it. We should never have subbed Carter until the game was in the bag.... Still we probably needed a loss to bring us back to earth. Unfortunately all the Aussie will gloat about is this win for the summer, not the 10 they lost before...
