Australia going with Andrew Fifita on the bench

10 posts in this topic

It looks like Tim Sheen may break from tradition of being conservative in his Team selections and choose rookie Prop Andrew Fifita on the Bench as an impact player.

Australia's selection on the Bench against England will be interesting and may show the Coaches thoughts on how he feels England stack up as an opponent.

If he thinks of England as anything other than an equal, then Australia are going to lose another major tournament.

in the words of tony stark...

well we've got a hulk..(george burgess)

 

Could work against us if Fifita plays. When he played the Rabbitohs he tore their pack to pieces, forced George to drop a ball or two, and frustrated Sam Burgess so much that he gave away 2 or 3 back-to-back penalties trying to put a shot on him - and they came close to fighting.

 

The Burgii will have to have a better go at keeping their composure this time round.

How he chooses his Bench does not mean he will be disrespecting England in any way.

It just may show what his thoughts are on how to counter the style of team England will put out.

Often Australia has gone for smaller mobile forwards, in this match he may decide to put his bigger players on the bench and play Gallen at lock ect.

I will be flabbergasted if Fifita isn't picked for at least the England game and every finals game we play.

Just looked at the team Australia have announced.

Not great selections in many areas.

A Bench of Farrah, Parker, Fifita and Lewis. WTF?

How did Parker and Farrah get selected.
