The Aussies are unbeatable we shouldn't even try we won't even get close. Maybe if we were abit more positive and weren't afraid of them then we could of beat them in a series in my life time. Kiwis got over it and now are reigning world champions.
I am not saying that.
The Australians are beatable as you say the Kiwis have done, but the Kiwis play a game similar to the Aussies as 99% of their players are playing in the NRL have been brought up as Juniors in Australia or in some cases born in Oz.
The Kiwis have beat Australia I think twice in around the last 20 games, fortunately those two games were major ones.
My point was..
Every year we hear about the English forwards are better than the SH forwards and yet they have been lucky to come off even at best against Oz at least.
Teams match up differently to each other, that has always been the case.
The Kiwi Forwards often seem to get the better of Oz
The English Forwards always do ok against the Kiwis.
Australia has always at least matched England in the Forwards (IMO)
The one difference is Australias backs are better than either Englands or the Kiwis and I do not see that changing anytime soon, more options, more players coming off the assembly line adds up to more wins than losses.
If I was an English fan I would want a couple of things.
A far better National Coach (the Kiwis did best when they borrowed Wayne Bennett)
A team that has a comprehensive tactical kicking game, with several quality kicking options (Another reason Widdop should be a certainty)
There are probably many more things but those two are a start.
Regarding the Forwards.
Ellis is on the way down, his best is behind him and has been at Test level for a couple of years.
Sam Burgess is injured a lot
Luke Burgess is only just an NRL standard player
Westwood is an honest toiler.
Morley should be retired.
Roby has never done a lot against Australia.
Graham is outstanding.
