Big Jim’s tip for 17 August: Wallabies

Written by Big Jim

I know it’s opening day of the EPL season and I promise to give you some good tips in the next few days but this rugby game is as good as it gets.

I am back on board the Wallabies bandwagon. New Aussie coach Ewen McKenzie replaces Kiwi underachiever Robbie Deans as the top man in Australian rugby. I really think the Aussies have plenty of upside in both the Bledisloe Cup and the Four Nations this year.

A change of coach will be a positive and the team has had a good lead up to this game – there is nothing like a hard three Test series against the Lions to iron out some problems. I thought the Lions would blow the Wallabies away so their form is solid. The New Zealanders are the best team in the world and deserve to be favorites but this is Australia’s best chance in a decade to end the dominance.
