All Blacks v Wallabies
Bledisloe Two is up on Saturday, probably not what any Wallaby fans are ready for, but it is what it is. Last week the All Blacks gave the Wallabies a rugby lesson, or maybe they did not even notice, such was their poor attitude.
The All Blacks did not do anything special, in fact they played exactly how we the rugby loving public expected. Beauden Barrett was OK, not fantastic just OK. All Blacks started off slowly, in fact it did look like the Wallabies would hit the sheds up.
At HT I was still a Wallabies punter, not sure why, but I was. All it took was a minute or two and the flood gates opened. The Wallabies never looked like scoring, they kicked aimlessly, and they had zero ideas when it came to attack. They simply had no plan.
This week I expect pretty much the same. Mr Cheika at time of writing is still employed. Hanrick suggested on our Live Weekly rugby Chat that it would be difficult to replace Mr Cheika with just thirteen short months before Japan 2019.
I don’t think one week is enough to get those lazy Wallabies up to standard by game time come Saturday. Bledisloe Two will go the same way as the first plus a couple of tries.
All Blacks have a couple of injuries to worry about, but as any rugby punter knows, there is no such thing as a Weak All Black team. It really does not matter who dons the All Black jersey on Saturday, they will do the business.
The bookies have adjusted their handicap up from a really low ten last week to a somewhat more respectable 22. At twenty two I am a minus punter, in fact it did not take much to swing me. I am so confident here I am calling a play bigger than what has been set.
As has become custom, I will again look to a price above the nine to ten line, this week I looking for some 2/1. As alternative handicaps are not out as yet, I will post my play at around 19h00 GMT +2 on Thursday.
