If Australia are serious about winning a medal in the rugby at the Olympics in Rio they have to play Slater, Barba and Inglis

Coming from a kiwi.. League shits on union fullstop no argument handsdown.there is no flow, no intensity, no bloody hope when the clock ticks and players not playing.theres no sense of urgency, no exhuastion and more dead time than a superbowl game. Rubbish

It won't even rate a mention in tomorrow's papers in Australia Davo.

Nobody in Australia cares even though if you think about it was an immense effort from a 2nd string Wallaby team to draw the game

thats a global myth - only said to sell the New Zealand name. if we dont have rugby then noone would have ever heard of the place. if you ever hear the words 'rugby' and 'global sport' in the same sentence its either being said by a kiwi or to one.

it is definitely more popular globaly, hands down.

that was a shocking game of rugby, but  for a "dead rubber match" not a whole lot worse than the nrl grand final.

No friggin tries in 80 minutes?

As a matter of fact, did Aus get inside the Kiwis 20?

As the demand for entertainment gets greater...i can see union continue to die here in Aus...especially in Sydney.

How the darn do you have a game where one team doesnt get inside the opposition 20 the whole game? No tries scored?

In dry conditions.....Its an awful sport that is dominated by penalties, kicking and scrums. How on earth is it bigger than league globally is one of lifes deepest questions

yeah they did get inside our twenty and nearly got a try.

i love it how we're bashing on this one shocking game when the past two weeks their had been two epic specticales.

what was the nrl grand final? no tries in the 2nd half...i thought league was so epic....no tries in the 2nd half of a grand final?

Nothing can beat Aussie Rules where you get points for missing
