John Williamson's True Blue - hfg!
Sorry just had to include that.
Anyways, the Pumas were excellent last week.
Clinical at the breakdown, both sides of the ball and as has been well documented, they bought a superior level of aggression than the All Blacks.
Rare that you say that.
But the Wallabies will be ready, no Lachie Swinton is a fair loss, it'll all be on the Wallabies pack to match it with the Pumas.
Last game of the year for the Wallabies, whilst the Pumas have two more to look forward to against NZ over the next couple of weeks.
That means Australia leaves nothing out on the pitch.
So what do we need?
Taniela Tupou is back in the starting line up, you'd be expecting him to get his hands on the ball and carry well, while Ned Hanigan will no doubt give away some penalties - we just have to expect that - but hopefully he can bring the aggression.
Number 8 Harry Wilson has fitted into International Rugby like an old pair or jeans and this will be his best game yet, expect him to have a huge game and then celebrate accordingly - Cameron Munster style.
If the engine room do their job, if the Wallabies are smart at the breakdown and don't over commit numbers, they'll negate the areas of the game where the Pumas could be dominant.
If they do that, they'll win.
Plain and simple.
The backline is unchanged, stability!
Hunter Paisami and Jordan Petaia in the centres, I like that. Paisami will give them plenty of punch in the middle like he did against the All Blacks, a seriously underestimated part of the success a fortnight ago.
The Wallabies are short in the head-to-head market, but expecting this to be a tight arm wrestle so that means there is value in the 1-12 about the Wallabies and banking on Reece Hodge to come into the game big time with his goal kicking in this.
Can you bet on Hodge to kick say 3+ penalties?
I reckon that's what'll happen.
Wallabies 1-12 @ $2.50, yes please.
Go you good things.
