Looking forward to this one. Interesting Aussie side.

I'm more interested in what side Samoa will field. They put out a weak side for their game against Tonga this morning I'm guessing preparing for this one, which they probably see as the key game in their RWC preparation.

Interesting that this game will take place during the day. Must be the first time an Australian Test on home soil has seen sun light in probably 8 years or so.

Thats a team for playing very open fast rugby... this game might be a classic...

No offense to the Bazzers on these boards but "C'Mon Samoa"

Jonah Lomu suggests tonga could be this years dark horse for the RWC,Fiji
due to politics may not be the force they were 2007.
Japan have won there first Pacific nations so that suggests they are progressing it would be unwise to discount ANY side in a RWC.
All Blacks playing Fiji on the 22 of July that side should be interesting.

Good to see Vickerman back in the fold. An underrated lock that guy.

I'd put a lot of money on Ioane scoring - he looked in awesome form against the Crusaders last week.

Vickerman has been rated the best lock in aus since eales but pretty much everyone...
