Or maybe the FS is the start of the current 3rd wave and it's hard to have biosecurity.

See KT's comment below they're bringing all of that with them... own pilot own plane cooks etc and the bubble of course! Lol

I think you've been at the James Bond movies a little too much old chap. Very entertaining mind you!

Williams was useless for both sides

I thought that the Brumbies played very well. They showed enough to suggest that the Wallabies will be able to field a strong team in the test matches. For example, Banks showed purer speed to score his try.

Agree, I think it will take them a couple of weeks to adjust to the pace and execution needed against kiwi sides but there are some good signs.

I think the refinement will come with the refs picking up their game and becoming consistent, thus negating the need for the challenges!

At the moment some refs are using the 50/50 areas to determine the outcome of games. Many a game has been won or lost on the 50/50 calls going one way. I’m not saying they are deliberately cheating, it may be subconscious, or that they are influenced by home crowd etc, but at least the sides now have a means to call this into check!

It is short term pain but it will lead to a better game in the fullness of time!
