        Its sad. If Kurtley Beale concentrated on his footy more none of these dramas would have happened. Michael Cheika should be the new coach

        Just finished watching and thought it was a very enjoyable 79 mins and 57 seconds.

        Then it hurt quite a bit!

        I should've watched the post game interviews as I seemed to have missed quite a bit of drama!

        More Kiwi's than aussies at suncorp. Still a win would be very very very nice (and welcomed!!!!)

        Beale should not have been picked at 10 in those early games ahead of his nsw team mate where they won the super rugby title

          Indeed GE. It appears all but official that Michael Cheika has the Wallabies job on a 3 year deal. He is our best chance of success at the RWC. The Wallabies have England & Wales in their pool so it will be tough just to make it to the knock out stages.

            I would like to see as well Alan Jones have a big say in the Rugby maybe as a Director of coaching etc. Cheika is the best guy for the job, he won't put up with crap and being a very wealthy guy, he is not doing it just for the money but for his love of rugby and wanting the Aussies to do well

            The wallabies should sign Inglis and have a real crack at getting Bill back down under.

            Was a great show on Foxsports this arvo highlighting RWC2011 matches & progression, was a nice succinct production, enjoyed over beers @ the pub.

            Go Wallabies!

              Fiji far from embarrassed by england even though they lost.

              Lots of 'swing low sweet chariot' chants around the ground.

              Our first game against fiji as well. Poor buggers!

              Canadian accents commentating! Sounds weird. Go Aust....Go Canada!

              Whilst Georgia's upset win over Tonga was pretty good.....I don't think anything stands up to the Japan v Sth Africa game!

              wow!

              34-32 to Japan (coached by aussie ex coach Eddie Jones)

              Very entertaining game to watch and the crowd was awesome. Great stuff!

                Best last ten minutes ever.
                To hold the ball like that and keep going for victory was amazballs. The emotion of the crowd and players bought a tear to my eye.

                And the Japanese turned down a penalty that would have drawn the game. Amazing and very uplifting.

                  My worry is that Cooper may play well against Uruguay and Cheika will use that as a reason to select him against England :sweating:
