Australia vs England show, David Campese column

The Wallabies coaches are announcing the team will play England on Sunday and it will be interesting to see how the team will choose the selection.

Just for the England trials and they are looking at the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France?

Just one year out of the World Cup and the more the team plays, the more we know each other, the more we get together, the better we are in 15 months.

As a winger I’m not good at picking people up front because I don’t care what the prop or hooker does … even if they give the ball to the back, that’s what great!

But it is important to meet the former.

For me, the most important thing for a team to win the World Cup is the relationship between 8, 9 and 10, the flankers and No.8 do the same, and the most important thing is No.

Then you have to be 9 and 10 to have a very good relationship and if the rumors that Quade Cooper is coming back are true, it might be hard to find a relationship with someone he hasn’t played for close to. 12 months – with Nic White and Tate McDermott.

I saw him last year when Beauden Barrett came back from Japan and played in the trial, coming with 20 to go.

He lost because he had not played with those players for six months.

So, you can see, if that’s the No.

I’d love to see Dave Rennie pick what he thinks his Rugby World Cup team will be up against with England and go from there – so if he’s thinking about bolters, pick them now.

Here are my thoughts on some of the most important backline points as we look at a major three-Test home series.

SCRUMHALF: Tate McDermott

It was shocking to see Tate McDermott knocked out in the cold in Christchurch.

But early indications are that he will be good for the probationary period. I think we like him, he’s a good player. He plays a kind of game that people want to see, he’s always against opponents so I’ll go with McDermott at No.9.

Nic White will join the team and is a good blood player. But I was a little worried about his cruelty. He’s very aggressive and has trouble with editors. Sometimes it’s not necessary and puts a lot of pressure on the team. I think he will give that strength to the opposition.

It was nice to have a nice but nice guy Tate and not get angry. I would also like to see White kick a little more, thatʻs the best time.

I want to see him get back to his running but I don’t know how the coach wants to play.

FLY HALF: James O’Connor

You have to go with O’Connor because he’s the incumbent – as long as he’s fit after an injured season.

After all, the talk is about Quade Cooper but I like young Ben Donaldson from NSW because he is a traditional No.10. He’s had some pain problems this year but he’s the best 10 youngster to run around. Unfortunately, he played for 15 years since returning to the Waratahs.

It’s great to have players with the necessary equipment but I think sometimes the coaches take it too seriously. I think that’s where we’ve struggled in the past, trying to get the best players in Australia on the field at the same time, instead of picking the best player on it. status.

A good example is Reece Hodge in the Rebels, he can play five positions but who is the best? I know our history against England is poor but don’t forget that they came into the hands of the six Kingdoms. Why not put a young man like Donaldson in there and see how he goes? He was an unknown thought of England.

One question I have is why don’t we have 10s in Australia who can kick with their left foot? Is it difficult?

Aaron Smith kicks with his left foot now because those world champions are always trying to improve.

CENTERS: Matt Toʻomua, Samu Kerevi

The center is a big problem in my opinion as most of the opponents just put the ball under the arm and pound it up. No.12 has been a solid, winning line -up but I think Australia are better off with a second player.

That’s why I go with Toʻomua as he is a very good player and a good kicker. He was very mature, well rounded and a good leader. She can be a good role model for some of the young people.

At age 13 I will have Kerevi’s unfortunate running game even though I don’t want to pick players from foreign countries. They didn’t get together or play together for six months. They go to camp which is great but it’s not like the game. I think that’s where we fell the last two years, bringing men in and out.

So maybe for the first try, pick a team you think will enter the World Cup and get to know them. Of course, it’s about winning, losing or pulling but they need to think now. It’s only 15 months left but I think that’s where the All Blacks are in trouble because they’ve played for people out of position like Jordie Barrett.

AND WINGERS: Marika Koroibete, Tom Wright

He’s playing in Japan but Koroibete is close to an easy option.

Meetings don’t matter if you’re a winger and I know Rennie likes his score. But who will vote on the other wing?

At this point, it’s Wright. You have to have smart wings and Wright is one of the best things to go around right now. He was really willing to try things out, like cheating on the kick and hitting defenders with good feet. I know the game has changed but we need some players who can’t predict.

My only question mark is about his high-performance as out of the ball.

I like the speed of Filipo Daugunu but he didn’t pass and shot very well.

Andrew Kellaway picked up nine tries for the Wallabies last year but why did they play him in his 13th year at the Rebels? He doesn’t have the ball and when he does he tries to do something but he is free. I would not choose Jordan Petaia or Mark Nawaqanitawase. I wasn’t bought into their fastball or paychecks.

FULLBACK: Jock Campbell

I will go with Campbell here. He is an inexperienced player with knowledge and a lot of ability. He needs a little help around the field because he will be free sometimes.

He has confidence but I think he needs to know when to get himself back and when to pass. It will take a long time but it is one of the battle races you will want to see. He needs the players around him to support him.

Tom Banks is fast and incumbent but can’t go as well as I would like and is quickly moving to Japan. He tried hard to play his game this year.

So, with just one year to go before the World Cup, it’s time to see if Campbell can rise to the top of world football. He could kick and hold and he wanted to walk. That’s what requires opponents to kick well because it can return the ball with interest.

I want to hear what people think of my options so let me know on my Instagram and Facebook page.
