In my latest column for Rugby365, I’ve outlined why everything that went wrong for the Wallabies in the 3-0 Cook Cup series loss can actually be the road forward for them. If they can be smart about it…
It may take some time for the shock to disperse, but the first clean-sweep series loss on home soil since Hannes Marais’ South Africans won 3-0 in 1971 provides Michael Cheika’s Wallabies a definite way forward for The Rugby Championship and the Bledisloe Cup.
But there’s one massive, unavoidable proviso.
They simply must stop shooting themselves in the foot.
