    This game was scrappy. JW emphasis on defence coming through and his concentration of getting the ball to the opponents half and win the breakdown. Pocock won the battle of the fetchers by a country mile and thus won the game for them.
    Pocock has a team that will benefit from his fetching the beers.

    Not really scrappy or defensive minded just that the referee allowed more at the breakdown than one is suppose. That allows defense to regroup and you will not see many tries in a game. If he doesn’t give much lean way the breakdown you will see a lot of tries being scored. Just watch closely

    JW has sorted out the brumbies defensive structures in all facets of play. Hence my comment defensively he has changed them…. His focus on defender wins you games. The scrappy part was there was too many stop starts due to dropped ball and infringements at the breakdown. Ref could not let any of them go but he somehow did not show the YC sooner like he was threatening.
    It was a test like game but can’t draw much from it. Cooper had no space to do anything.

    @ Wallabie.:
    There was more loitering than at a hobo convention. If the ref is not strict and cheaters like Pocock and other fetchers get away with more the less tries and more organised defensive units we see. 1 second in rugby equals almost to 10 or 20 meters in rugby and enough time for defenses to reorganize themselves
