performing Wallabies ahead of Argentina clash
Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie on Wednesday made no apology for one of the toughest calls of his 15 year coaching life when demoting the 47 Test gem at the heart of so many of the team's best moments over the past five cheap authentic pro bowl jerseys seasons.
It is unfair that a standard setter as passionate as halfback Genia should cop it in the neck when the shortcomings of other Wallabies are far more obvious yet McKenzie has elected to make his statement with one of his game generals. When Michael Clarke was struggling for early runs on this year's Ashes tour, he wasn't dropped. He was backed because his class is as permanent as Genia's and he delivered a century that was beyond the skill of others in the batting order. So it is when the world's No.1 halfback delivers in the big moments. That McKenzie could bench Genia for Saturday night's Test in Perth is astonishing. An untried halves pairing of Nic White and Quade Cooper will now be a target for the blue and white missiles in Argentinian jerseys. The coach said White's fresh spark and long kicking game were assets in his favour when stressing the call was not made for rotational reasons. Genia's big workload is probably still a contributing factor to the minor dulling of his exceptional standards since his man of the Dt5FW6a9x match effort against the super bowl fans gear British and Irish Lions in Brisbane two months ago. "I've known Will a long time but he would admit he's probably not been at the peak of his game of late," McKenzie said when unveiling a team with four changes. Dropping Will Genia the case for and against "The fact that Will has captained his country shows what high regard we hold him in. I also know how competitive he is and I've got no doubts he will train himself to a standstill to bounce back as a better player." When quizzed on what exact issues made it time to prefer a wholesale super bowl jerseys halfback with just 16 minutes of Test experience, McKenzie gave hints. "We didn't get near the game plan last weekend. "You've got to remember every team spends the whole time putting pressure on Will so he's got to be able to get around that. We've hat a chat about that and little things." Not exiting the Wallabies quarter with a kick in the opening minutes when the Springboks hit for a 7 0 lead is part of the crime and perhaps not directing more play back to his forwards when giving Quade Cooper carte blanche might have been another demerit. Genia's running game has also slowed. "Nic has got his own qualities and we've got to look to spark the team up," McKenzie said. "Every player needs to have that pressure to keep morphing and adjusting their game and Will will push himself to re find that world class form. "He's naturally disappointed because it is a long time since he's been in this situation." The show of Genia's quality was instantly congratulating White and helping him at training. They will be tight boots for White to fill, literally. "Will has been very open with advice and we've spoken quite a bit. He's even gave me two pairs of boots because we are the same shoe size," White smiled. "I'm actually a size 10 but I'll squeeze my feet into his 9 1/2s when they are broken in," quipped White who still buys his own. White said he didn't feel extra pressure coming in for Australia's best player. "Not from that point of view. I've been given a responsibiity to not just have a little run around but go out and do the job," White said. White will be a reassuring big boot from the ruck base but will also address the Wallabies woeful line kicking from penalties this season which started with Kurtley Beale's short hacks for touch during the Lions series. "Everyone can make easy decisions. It's the hard ones that make a cheap pro bowl gear difference," McKenzie said. "I hate losing. I'm not enjoying this time at all. 100 per cent we want to change that on Saturday." Wallabies: Israel Folau, James O'Connor, Adam Ashley Cooper, Christian nfl super bowl fans jerseys Lealiifano, Nick Cummins, Quade Cooper, Nic White; Ben Mowen (capt), Michael Hooper, Scott Fardy, Kane Douglas, Rob Simmons, Ben Alexander, Stephen Moore, James Slipper. Res: Saia Faingaa, Scott Sio, Sekope Kepu, Sitaleki Timani, Ben McCalman, Will Genia, Matt Toomua, Tevita Kuridrani.
