Can read the article here

Serioulsy Deans cant be that stupid? sure Pocock is a great up and comer and has a heap of potential, but he is nowhere near the player George Smith is yet. I think Smith was robbed of the John Eales Medal, now he could be robbed of a starting spot.

Yeah - this whole "looking to the future" strategy is all well and good, but it's going too far. O'Connor already failed miserably on the test stage by too an elevation (granted it was injury inforced) - they don't want to make such a moronic mistake as dropping the world's 2nd best flanker when they're facing the best...

Very true, looks like they'll be making a couple more changes too, 10. Barnes 12. Giteau. Also Mortlock is out injured for the ABs match and the following against England.

i wouldnt say it was miserable
his games against SA were reasonable for a rookie imo although yes he did fail a bit against NZ although in that game in Wellington i think it was every Wallaby failed haha

I've always thought Giteau is a better 12 than 10 - they just need a more tactical playmaker at 10 (they've really suffered without Larkham) and they'll be lethal.

As for O'Connor - he only looked good this year against whipping boys like Italy and a very tired France. As a fullback you can look magic in a dominating team - but you need to be able to defend to actually be any good - he can't defend for sh!t.
