The Wobblies could snatch this test if they fire on all cylinders. Barrett has been lukewarm all season, (dire Hurricanes tactics partly to blame), but hopefully finds form with Crotty outside him. I reckon less than 10 points will separate them but can’t pick who will prevail.

Agreed. Hansen knows the Aussies will probably play well and throw the kitchen sink at the ABs so fingers crossed it should be close and entertaining. Just hope there aren't cards / bad ref spoiling the game. Too bad Hansen didn't pick Mo'unga IMO.

That's a very strong team, possibly AB's best starting XV (reckon a Crotty-Goodhue midfield's better than sbw-Crotty but that's just me).

Also a much stronger bench (TJ v Phipps, Dmac v Toomua, Ardie v Samu etc). Hope Tupou gets some decent game time.
