Shame, Ha, Ha, a new low for the Wallabies
Mind you the All Blacks of 2002 (aka the Cantablacks), derided by the Wallabies, Springboks as well as some Kiwis as only a provincial side won the Tri Nations beating Australia once (loosing the second game by only 2 points) and beating South Africa twice. Perhaps Wales should field a side full of Osprey players.
I just hope the All Blacks can deal it to the England this weekend despite only playing Carter from the bench

Something about the Aussies losing, especially to a region/province. Especially, seeing as much of the Welsh international Osprey players didn't play due to them being in the Welsh squad for the Autumn Internationals.
Seeing Australia lose is similar but nowhere near as good as seeing England lose!
