    It will be interesting.
    It was apparent that the AB's were trying to bait Hooper.
    Hooper turned the tables on them with his gurly shriek of anguish to attract the Ref's attention which seemed to presage several broken vertebra, a broken jaw and contusions to his vagina.
    Imagine our surprise when he bounded away like a jolly jumbuck.

    If the wallabies can back it up with another game at the same standard and the AB's fire up as you would expect after copping a flogging like last week, it will be a cracking game. However, recent history will tell us the wallabies will play shit and the AB's will probably win by about 50.

    The Jumbuck is a Ram.
    The quote is from the Australian national hymn to sheep stealing: Waltzing Matilda.

    The rain probably made it a bit low scoring, but I wasn't far wrong.

    Normal transmission has been resumed. I guess that the Aussie press is not going to admit that they had their hands on it for the last week...

    One sided score board. Dominant.

    Guess the bookies are adjusting their odds for the world cup, back to where they were

    As I said to my ummmndear friend Oscar during a series of communication s across the Tasman during the thumping after AB’s performance in Perth and Wallabies at Eden the Webb Ellis will probably be heading Nirth if the Equator

    Your predictions have about as much credibility as your spelling
    Perhaps another Madeira my dear.

    Wales are number 1 in the world now. So it's possible.
