All Blacks

Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!

Hallelujah and not just for the win but the Wallabies back line ran a first phase move during the game for only the second time in 2010!

Not only that, there were several general play moves involving forwards and backs that looked like they’d been practiced at training.  Not surprisingly, these rare events produced line breaks and tries!

Has Robbie Deans been holding them back? Has Richard Graham improved as a skills coach since it was announced he’ll take on the lead role at the Force next year?  The truth is out there somewhere – all I know is that the Wallabies skill level, their attacking flair and their attacking impact were much, much better this week.

Some of the passing from Genia and Cooper was amazing – very reminiscent of Gregan and Larkham at their best, maybe even better.

Have a look at what I mean in this video and let’s hope the Wallabies keep it going in this week’s game against the All Blacks.
