It boggles the mind that Beale has been included in the Wallaby squad for the Lions series. Hardly played a game all year, clearly has major issues with alcohol (all credit to him for finally acknowledging that fact and dealing with it), and yet he gets picked. Bizarre. Equally bizarre is Burgess waltzing back into Wallaby colours without benefit of playing a game here in a couple of years. Even given White's injury it's a bit of an insult to the blokes who've stayed and plied their trade here.
Still not unhappy Cooper remains on the outer. Of course, if the maroon-eyed pinheads get their way McKenzie will be the next Wallaby coach and then he'll be first cab off the rank for every game. Not looking forward to that scenario.
Full-time in the west as I type and the Tahs, minus 17 of their squad, pull off a win against the Force. Foley's ploy of resting almost everyone from the Lions game didn't work out too well, evidently.
