Will Genia just got yellow-carded, he's basically gone for the rest of the first half.

Pon farr is never logical, Mr. Spock

How loving stupid is Higginbotham? Does he have some sort of deficiency in the brain? His captain gets carded, so it's probably assuming he'll be watching his team like a hawk for any illegal tactics. So he immediately does a no-arms tackle. loving idiot.

After so many years with Deans at the helm, it's disappointing how unimaginative and stale the Wallabies are in attack.

Surprised at how close the score is, Australia did well not to let a try through without Genia on the field.

Only 9-0 at halftime? Thought it was gonna be worse than that.

Still playing like poo poo though.

Combination of the All Blacks failing to make the most of their opportunities and strong Wallabies defence at the tryline.

You think the truth will set you free...

I'm not sure what this plan of picking Cooper and not giving him the ball is all about. Why is Barnes at first receiver so often? Cooper only gets it when they want to clear the ball. Odd.

How did Ashley-Cooper not get penalised there? He goes into the ruck and lies right down on top of the ball.

Was it just my imagination or was he barely trying to run at all when he and Israel Dagg were both chasing the ball about 5 minutes ago?

It was pretty noticeable that Dagg gave more of a gently caress than anyone in an Australian jersey in that phase.
