I said it in the other thread but Wales really should be looking to win this one.

Bookies have it more or less even with Wales maybe very slight favourites.

One thing I would not do via this Australian side is make it a loose, open game.

Strange front row selection, Lewis has played well, I don’t understand the thought process behind Francis or Smith! Cory Hill hasn’t done much wrong, so Beard seems an odd choice. Sanjay has been on fire, big test for Adams

Australia by 20 points for me

Tipuric needs to up his game at the breakdown and concentrate less at being an extra back. This game will be won at the breakdown and set plays. Ken needs to be onfire. Austrailia by 10.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

I fully expect Wales to spend about 70 min defending, miraculously finish within 10 points and Gatland to put a positive spin on it.

I'd love to be wrong.

If Anscombe slices as many kicks from hand as he did against Scotland, Aus by 20, if not, Aus by 10 (sadly)

These SH sides are battle hardened. That Aus back 5 in the pack is a handful.

Hard to see a Wales win tbh. Hope I'm wrong of course.

They're not in the greatest form really & we are on a bit of a roll in terms of wins... I fancy us by 4 points.

Agree and to be brutally honest I think man for man they are better than us on the whole

We just need to keep playing until that final whistle, whether it's 80 mins or 88 mins. The amount of times we've lost to Australia with seconds to spare is so frustrating.

I can't fault the logic of either of you in all honesty but I think we will win which surprises me. Momentum & confidence are key elements in sport : Wales have it 6 wins on the trot, Australia don't. I certainly wouldn't put money on it but I just have that feeling.
