We may as well enjoy it while it lasts because let’s be honest, by 7:30 Saturday evening we will probably be watching Kieran Read hoisting the Bledisloe Cup with a smug grin on his face.
Spinning the litany of team changes as the All Blacks panicking could very well be as good as it gets for the Wallabies this week.
That being said, this is still the All Blacks we are talking about and there have been way too many times where the chips were down and they just decided to beat their opponent soundly, usually Australia.
Omitting Ben Smith is one of those decisions that should backfire on any other rugby team but it will probably wind up looking like a masterstroke from Steve Hansen.
Not to mention the new fullback Beauden Barrett is a more than capable replacement and someone capable of turning the game on his own, plus he can serve as an extra playmaker if Richie Mo’unga can’t quite take over the game.
As tempting as it is to back the Wallabies to secure another upset win, it’s hard to see them pulling off as strong of a performance again.
Tip: New Zealand at $1.14
Value Tip: First Goal Scorer: Bridge, George at $8.00
