Wallabies have new faces for B&IL


Can this Wallaby side be the first Aussie side to win in Brisbane?

Deans better hope they perform because his cock is n the block so to say…

And with Ewen MacKenzie’s success at the Reds and Jake White’s noname Brumbies becoming the first side in Aussie in 40 years to roll over the Lions and leading the SR Aus conference you must start to wonder how long the Dingo has?

Only three new caps for the Wallabies. Ben Mowen and Christian Leili’ifano join Israel Folau in the str=arting lineup. Folau the league man will have the less than enviable job of marking George North.

Only six Wallabies remain from their last test match of 2012.

James ‘O Connor has predictably been given the flyhalf job with Leili’fano and Cooper outside him. In all a very dangerous and attacking halfback and center pairing. The wings Folau and Digby Ioane on the wing. All in all a very dangerous set of players.

The recovered AA convert Kurtley Beale slips to the bench.

James Horwill will skipper.

Here it is.

Australia: 15 Berrick Barnes, 14 Israel Folau, 13 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 12 Christian Leali’ifano, 11 Digby Ioane, 10 James O’Connor, 9 Will Genia, 8 Wycliff Palu, 7 Michael Hooper, 6 Ben Mowen, 5 James Horwill (captain), 4 Kane Douglas, 3 Ben Alexander, 2 Stephen Moore, 1 Benn Robinson.
Replacements: 16 Saia Fainga’a, 17 James Slipper, 18 Sekope Kepu, 19 Rob Simmons, 20 Liam Gill, 21 Nick Phipps, 22 Pat McCabe, 23 Kurtley Beale.

  1. Can anyone reccommend a betting site ( I gotta check to make sure Americans are allowed to do this sorta thing on the internets)?
    I wanna put down for B/I Lions 3-0.
    I know, I know bad bet & all but that’s my feeling.

    I think Lions are gonna treat Oz like the mice you put in a boa cage.

  2. Can’t – not allowable with tax law to bet with internet.
    So stupid.

    Tonight’s game prediction:
    Lions by 16.
    Deans unable to be seen in press box because he is on the floor in a fetal position.
    Neighbors can hear uproarious cheers after each Lions score curiously eminating from Jake White’s residence.

    Ag flippen heck….

    Sorry bud…

    The problem is Jake takes the Wobblies and crushes the Boks and Kiwis into the stone age for four years till they take up cricket to compensate for their poor rugby form…

  4. Cricket? What is cricket? Is it that game that we used to play and support, where everytime SA got to a semi or something resembling it, we did the bone in throat dance?

  5. With all the saffas in the nz squad and the aussies being coached by one, I wasnt at all surprised to see them not make the semi’s in an icc knockout comp. Lucky for Eng they stopped the rot, and neither KP nor Strauss was there to choke.
