Re: 2012 Rugby Championship thread

I thought we'd lost that game last night. Two quick fire tries to the Puma mid-way through the 2nd half, one thanks to a Cooper kick charge down and another just down to a great counter attack, though if the ref went to the video it would have been no try as the Puma winger had a foot on the line before he threw the final pass inside for the try.

Shipperley getting injured and Beale been crap probably saved Cooper from going to the bench early. He again threw a pass that got intercepted. I have not seen an flyhalf throw so many intercepted passes as Cooper has down in his short career. A lack of form from Beale and injuries are keeping Cooper in the team at the moment.

Phibbs was okay. He delivered fast and most on target balls and he did set up a try that got Australia into the lead. However, at a crucial moment when the Wallabies had a free kick at their 10 m, near the touchline he took the ball and booted it out on the full\t. The only saviour to that situation is that the Puma's made an error immediately from the lineout.
