The Wallabies played a stupendous first 36 minutes in the 1st half. Great defence and solid possession. Then a try by the All Blacks set off a 6 try spree. The second half was a typical joke performance by a team that continually flakes when the cage is rattled. 7 lost line outs on our own feed and our scrum was screwed multiple times.
CM has thought for a while that coach Michael Cheika needs to go. He can’t bring 80 minutes of discipline with his players. He has a 54% win record at the helm. With the All Blacks its 22%. Even Scotland is 50%. This is the second worst record of any Aussie coach.
Bob Dwyer – 64% win record
Alan Jones – 68%
Greg Smith – 63%
Rod Macqueen – 79%
Eddie Jones – 58%
John Connolly- 59%
Robbie Deans – 58%
Ewen Mackenzie- 50%
Time to realize he is a dud. The lack of discipline goes straight to the leadership team. There are no positives to take away when a team can only hold it together for just under half a game. It is not an issue of players or ability but discipline.
It doesn’t take away a deserved win by New Zealand but the engravers might as well get to work on the 16th straight series victory because the Wallabies are mere road kill for now.
