Can Wallaby pack woes be rectified by Waratahs?

April 17, 2006

Greg Crowden in the Sydney Morning Herald writes:

"The push for Waratahs to dominate the Test pack, including every front-row position, has gained momentum following NSW's emphatic win over the Brumbies." ...

"The applause is also starting to come from overseas. International pundits have long laughed at the Wallabies' poor scrum, especially when it fell apart on last year's end-of-season tour of Europe. But former All Blacks five-eighth Grant Fox, writing in New Zealand's Sunday Star-Times, said the NSW front row "holding its own" against the Crusaders the previous week had been "a massive step forward from the Twickenham disaster"."


Spiro Zavos adds more perspective in the same newspaper.
