After the performance against England many may have thought the Wallabies would steamroll Wales. Far from it. From the kick-off the Welsh harried Australia, battering them in defence and stealing the ball repeatedly at the breakdown. They gave it everything they had and were much tougher opponents than the English, who were rabbits in the headlights last weekend. It caught the Wallabies off guard at times, but they recovered to take a slim 9-6 lead at the break thanks to Bernard Foley’s boot.
TWO football greats praised the successful hybrid game played between rugby league’s Wests Magpies and rugby’s Galloping Greens of Randwick.
The match was played at breakneck speed on Sunday and fans walked away impressed with the hybrid concept.
“For both sides to adjust to what are vastly different games, it was very impressive,” said Wallabies legend Simon Poidevin, who attended the game.
Players and officials involved in the inaugural hybrid rugby match between Wests Magpies and Randwick are keen to play again during next year's pre-season after hailing the concept a success.
Wests, whose team included former NRL stars John Skandalis, Bronson Harrison, Shannon Gallant and Ray Cashmere, ran out 47-19 winners over the Galloping Greens at Parramatta Stadium on Sunday in an entertaining match that encouraged organisers to continue with their quest to find a game combining the best of the two codes.
