He's hilarious. "Giteau is as good as Dan Carter. Thats why we started
him on the bench."

That good old self depreciating "Look at me, I'm an idiot!" humour, eh?

Compared to some of the things emanating from the Oz camp over the last
few days, this is actually a remarkably accurate observation. When
fit, Giteau is no mug, and there's not much between him and Carter -
over the last 12-18 months, Carter's had the advantage of operating
behind significantly superior forwards.

That was when he was down this way as back coach for the Lions.
That tour says heaps about his skills as a back coach.
After watching saturdays game, the Wallies are using the same tactics in
the backs.
Muggleton is also saying their defence on sat was shit as well.

I've seen plenty of pure class performances from Carter, who lives up
to the hype. Giteau broke onto the scene in a hail of &quot;great white
hope&quot; style press, and has failed to deliver. He's a decent player but
has not developed into much else. I'm sure he's a training ground
legend, but I bet if you offered Johnson the swap he'd take it.

&gt; And I really don't remember him coming to NZ for the Lions tour
&gt; either....
&gt;
&gt; k.

Because you don't remember does that mean it didn't happen?

While searching for details of Scott Johnson with the 2005 Lions I found
this article that shows the mans thinking.
He was full of shit last year too!



All Blacks not to be feared (Rugby Heaven)

By Ben Kimber
Saturday, July 30, 2005

Forget the fact that New Zealand dominated the British and Irish Lions
as their warm-up for the Tri Nations series that
kicks off tonight. According to Scott Johnson, the Wallabies have no
need to fear the All Blacks side that is favoured to
lift the trophy.
An assistant coach with Wales, Johnson is well positioned to comment on
the state of All Blacks rugby:
not only did he analyse them when assisting the Lions management on
their unsuccessful tour,
the Australian mentor has also coached in close association with All
Blacks head coach Graham Henry and his assistant,
Steve Hansen.
And while the All Blacks were impressive, Johnson is confident the
Wallabies will have enough firepower come Bledisloe Cup
time to prove a more effective opponent than the Lions.
&quot;People shouldn't be frightened by the Lions result at all,&quot; Johnson
said. &quot;In many ways the Lions underachieved,
I think it's fair to say that. Even though this All Blacks side is
quality, pre-tour I didn't think there was all
that much difference between the two teams. New Zealand maximised, and
the Lions underachieved,
so there's the argument both ways.
&quot;I think Australia have to be respectful of the fact that New Zealand
are starting to assemble a great All Blacks team,
but only great because it has more depth than it's ever had. I've spoken
to the New Zealand coaching staff several times
about it, and they're eyeing off a big cup in a couple of years that
they haven't won for a while.
They have to get balance in their squad and they're going to do that
over this period.
But they do have some holes in their squad.
&quot;I think they're there for the taking, purely because they will be
chopping and changing a little bit with their team,
working on that depth. If they have an injury to their lock or even in
their front row, they haven't got the depth.
And I think in the next two years they'll certainly be trying to win the
Tri Nations, but I think they'll be trying
to expose a few kids to this level of rugby as well.&quot;
Johnson stressed he was not suggesting the All Blacks would be an easy
proposition, but simply that they are far from
the finished product that could sweep all before them as they did the Lions.
&quot;You may get them on an off night, and I think they do scare if
they're not scoring points,&quot; Johnson said.
&quot;They do scare, because they don't realise that sometimes you have to
grind it out to win it.
If it's a tough game New Zealand start to doubt themselves. They're not
insurmountable at all.&quot;
So why, then, did the combined might of the British and Irish Lions fail
to mount any significant challenge?
For Johnson, the problem lay in combining unusually divergent rugby
cultures from the four teams that came together
under Clive Woodward's direction.
&quot;When the four nations came together in the past they probably had one
style they all played every year,&quot; Johnson said.
&quot;They probably played it the same but each time they came together one
side dominated, and probably for the last 20 years
it's mostly been England.
&quot;This time we had another style, a French-like style, if you like,
within the group and that became a dominant part.
So it was probably the hardest Lions tour to grab together a certain
philosophy.&quot;

Australia have no such issues and, according to Johnson, the Wallabies
may even have a mental edge over their neighbours.
&quot;Being the type of nations they are, I always apply the big
brother-little brother factor,&quot; he said.
&quot;If you can compete in a tight game and the scores are fairly level,
I'd back Australia in a tight game before I would New Zealand.&quot;

My apologies, it did happen, he was actually in NZ .... albeit in an

made his poxy comment ...

&gt;&gt; Compared to some of the things emanating from the Oz camp over the last
&gt;&gt; few days, this is actually a remarkably accurate observation. When
&gt;&gt; fit, Giteau is no mug, and there's not much between him and Carter -
&gt;
&gt;Carter is a fine looking fellow and is not a hobbit like Giteau.

Shit I thought you were taking the piss. I even laughed at the kicking
comment, thinking you were justifiably taking the piss out of Carter's
kicking last weekend. Ah well, my own fault for thinking SA'cans had a
sense of humour I suppose.

Carter is anything but ordinary IMO, while G=E2teau flatters to deceive
as SSB points out. By his standards Carter had a fairly quiet game last
weekend I thought, but even then he showed another side to his game:
his defence was astonishing and his support play was good too. He's a
genuine running flyhalf. Unlike Larkham who is a great runner, but
often runs out of/away from support, Carter links exceptionally well.
He's destined to become a legend of the game I reckon. Good news for
Kiwis, bad news for the rest of us.

But back to the original comment...I don't think the statement &quot;Giteau
is as *skilled* as Carter&quot; is necessarily ridiculous - Giteau *is* very
skilled, that much is clear but he needs to stay skillfull for 80
minutes and not go awol for long periods.

We are still not quite sure whether he's a half back, a

And if he's an inside centre, can he be a good enough elusive
penetrator, complementary kicker and back line administrator as Mauger
is; to overcome his lack of gritty consistency, rock solid defence and
bullocking ruck-setting that the modern inside centre more usually
practices.

Fair enough .. Giteau is a skilled player for sure but hes made much less
impact than Carter
has on the game to date.

Scott Johnson was also on 'inside rugby' last night claiming that the
Wallabies will
be the &quot;dominant pack in world rugby in 18 months&quot;.

Nothing is impossible I guess but having never had a dominant pack he and

Ah yes, but you have to understand the workings of the Australian mind
to see how this figures.

To them, the word &quot;Australian&quot; is synonomous with &quot;world's best&quot;.
Because it is an Australian pack it is automatically the world's best
and really it's just a few injuries and poor refereeing that is keeping
them down.

Matt Giteau is Australian, therefore he is automatically the world's
best inside back. George Smith is an Australian, naturally he is the
world's best flanker.

And so it goes.

And once you cut through all the Kiwi verbage (including some of yours
Rick), this is the point.

Giteau has been badly managed by successive selectors and coaches. He is not
an inside centre.
He can be a gifted fly half, if given the job and the security that should
go with it . Regettably, we
can't look to the longer term and will persist through this Tri Nations with
Gregan, Larkham and Sharpe et al

Sweet.

Normally when a new coach comes in after a disastrous year, the broom
comes out and the players that haven't been performing are swept out of
the side. Connolly did this for the sum total of two days, when he picked
an initial training squad filled with new faces, only to reverse
this decision and invite the previous crew of under-achievers back in a
couple of days later.

The fact is, the Australamericans are relying on their current personnel
to take them through to the cup. The problem is that most of them are old
and have their best years behind them.

Scott Johnson was talking in the paper the other day about teaching
Larkham new skills, yet the guy is in his mid 30s. He's only ever going
to get worse as the years inexorably catch up with him and that's the
truth for most of the Wallaby squad.

So I get a real kick reading about how the Wallabies management are
addressing their shortcomings and teaching new skills to the same tired
old under-achievers. Let them kid themselves. The Wallabies are going
backwards and their triumphalism after getting thrashed is thoroughly
amusing.

My impression of Giteau is a poor imitation of Carlos Spencer. He does some
tricky things from time that give the illusion he has the goods, then just
fails to show up for the rest of the game.
My prediction is that he'll become the Aussie 10 after Larkham retires and
enjoyed mixed success only to be usurped by some younger version of himself
that actually does have the goods.

&gt;&gt; inside back. George Smith is an Australian, naturally he is the world's
&gt;&gt; best flanker.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; And so it goes.
&gt;
&gt; Well Australia had the best Olympics ever, the best World Cup ever and the
&gt; best Commonwealth Games ever. It's only natural they they have the best
&gt; rugby players. It won't be long before the AFL final gets renamed to the
&gt; World Series.
&gt;


They did do a pretty damn good Olympics and World cup Bully.
Crudit where crudits due.

As imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so is obsession the
surest sign of an inferiority complex.

I've always had a problem with the phrase 'imitation is the sincerest form of flattery' and have
since come to the conclusion that it is a load of bollocks. Are you trying to say that taking the
piss is, in fact, a method of paying compliment? or are you simply repeating an age-old saw that
really doesn't stand up to the slightest prod of scrutiny?

Which, after last night, now looks uncannily prophetic. OK, the
opposition was not tres flash, but then neither has most of what
Carter's come up against either (c.f., the Lions). International rugby
is at its lowest ebb since the late 60s.

We should do one for rugby captains' after match speeches. I'm sure with
all the many, mnay years of our collective experience, we could deliver
a beauty.

&quot;All credit to the opposition, it was a game of two halves, and rugby
was the real winner. I'd like to thank our boys, who gave 110 per cent,
and the opposition, who played in the spirit of the game. And thanks to
the ref, it's a tough job and we wouldn;t have a game without them.&quot;

Anyone else?

It usually pays to include &quot;exploited the blind&quot; somewhere. Apart from
that I think you've about covered it. Dont forget the &quot;cheers Muz&quot;
