Ideas: This can be bad for all blacks. No kidding.
In Sydney, Alt Collins suffered a historic 25-15 defeat to Argentina, with coach Ian Foster leading the way with just two unbeaten returns from five matches, leaving many glass-eyed supporters still empty-handed. Came out who are walking on the wall. Saturday night.
Here’s a snippet that might inspire them.
At least the world champion Springbox, who withdrew from the rugby championship due to a lack of preparation due to the Covid-19, is not in the soft underlay to make a hot point that Poom took a big bite in the banquest. Stadium

And, thankfully, All Calls never had to meet England in London. That game, as part of a northern tour, was boxed due to the epidemic.
Imagine if the England team coached by Eddie Jones could lose if he played as he did against the applications.
To think about, a fortnight ago, when the All Calex smoked the Vallabes with a record score of 43-5 in Sydney, it looked like they would continue to ride the magic carpet in the rest of the Tri-Nations.
Fat chance. Now it’s all about loss control.
With just one game left, they are unlikely to claim the Tri-Nations title against Palmas at Newcastle Castle on November 28.
They only blame themselves. No excuses. Any talk of being away from home and loved ones at the All College should be banned because of the heat and the constant uncertainty created by Covid-19.
None of this bothered the Argentine men who suffered a setback and did not play a Test in 13 months.
The palms were expected to be trampled underfoot by all blacks; Instead, the inspiring captain and No. 6 Pablo Matera acted as if he was imitating King Kong in defense and boats, the people who repeatedly lit up all blacks like tanks with arm cloth. Knitting.
All-black captain Sam Kane and his fellow forwards were never able to control the breakdown; Maybe they were waiting for the big Palmas forwards to come out of the fuel due to the fitness of the match and lack of heat.
If they were, they would be very disappointed. Even when Foster went to his bench, it was Pooma who raised the tempo.
All blacks execute the art of making mistakes; Some 10 Richie Corals, who chased the Walbeys in Sydney, missed a penalty kick at half-time, wasting any chance of losing an attempt to stop a line-drive.
Replacement hooker Cody Taylor failed to hit his jumpers twice in the second half, after which the bot-up lost hope of building a mall near the effort line.
Sick-discipline, then, was an issue – like the damage to Vallabes in Brisbane a week ago.
And as the clock ticked, all the blacks forgot more.
In the 68th minute, they took 12 steps together without violating the defensive line, this was a well-known theme, and when Coral tried to take a short kick, it went straight to an opponent.
Four minutes later, Change No. 8 Hoskins Sotutu fired an attacking scrum and then threw Damien Mackenzie’s back and jungle path.
It was even worse. Halfback Brad Weber, switching to the red zone, took a quick penalty tap when a scrum or kick was the rational option for the line. Matra killed while securing a valuable business and it was time to call it a nightmare.
Everything will come under scrutiny in the coming days, including Kane’s leadership and tactics.
All Calex’s reputation has been tarnished. The contract is signed with Foster by the end of 2021. He should be thankful for that.
