    “About the only positive that could be found at the end of the 80-minute rout was that the injury-battered Wallabies sustained no further casualties in Paris. The mental scarring will be harder to repair.”

    Sorry for Robbie, but I actually wish they would fire him and employ Messiah McKenzie. When he also eventually fails to perform consistantly maybe the Ausies will catch a wake up.

    Blaiming all their ills on Deans is just daft. The fact that their teams have not been performing in Superugby should have been a warning light.

    Reply to Craven @ 11:21 am: got a lot to do with the refs been policed more and therefor having to ping sides for more offences they normally get away with.
