Australia still unable to win in Wales, let’s blame George Gregan

By johnboy - 5 November 2006 9

Well last night the Wallabies again failed to beat Wales. Mysteriously it seems that changing halfback doesn’t help much when your forwards are being comprehensively banjoed in the scrum and maul.

But I would like to try and console our friends in the Sydney media. I think we can safely say that George Gregan was as responsible for last night’s failure as he was for that of last year.

So if last year’s attribution of blame was accurate then we can just blame George again. And with his retirement looming in the next 12 months generations of Wallabies can look forward to blaming George for their weak and effete scrummaging.

Outstanding!

For those who missed a game here’s a snippet of our magnificent attacking scrum inside the Welsh 22 with 2 minutes to play and the scores tied. And all with George Gregan on the other side of the world!

What’s Your opinion?

Rodgers was appalling! The stupid penalty he conceded by “slapping” the opposition was the point at which we lost our momentum.
Blake, despite his “advantageous” 130kg, has yet to hold ANY scrum. He backpeddles quicker than an 8 year old at the “Neverland Ranch”.
Our backline fired when Gits “cut-out” Rodgers, giving Larhkam space to attack.

Amazing how QLD fail so miserably at Super 14 yet dominate national selection under a QLD coach !!

was it any suprise rogers was shit at fly half… the guy is a great impact player.. but everytime i have seen him start in a ball playing roll he has been less than useless

Watching the game again, I think the Wallabies would have been happy to end the game after 25 minutes, they looked the goods up until then.

As you say, Sydney media. They suck.

Gits had a great game at half, fortunately he has great games at flyhalf and inside centre / second fly half too.

My point is that, as with the last northern hemisphere tour, we’d win a lot more games if the forwards were competent in the basics of the game. And that’s got nothing at all to do with the half back who mysteriously carried the can last time around.

Gee, our front row has come a long way. Bleh.

-Meant to say Gits did well at scrumhalf.

Small problem for Greegs is that Gits did pretty well as halfback. Rogers was crap despite the coach saying he played ‘bravely’. (I can play ‘bravely’ too.) Good to get the experimentation out of the way now, before they return to the startling conclusion that the best backline is Greegs, Bernie, Gits, Stirls with various wingers at their disposal.
