You're clutching at straws. Neither try was a result of a defensive lapse. You had a pick-and-drive from one metre out, and then a two or three man overlap because the Wallabies had been scrambling for 9 or 10 phases. Any team worth their salt would have scored in those circumstances.

Defensively they did nothing differently in the second half. What they did was tighten up their ball security, use a more focused kicking game and get quicker ruck ball. As a result, they weren't forced to play so much in their own half. Now you can claim that I'm 'blaming' all you want, but it really is a fundamental aspect of the game.

I mean, we started off with "ordinary", now you've upgraded them to "adequate". Pretty soon you'll be agreeing with me.
