NZ will dominate at scrum time this world cup. Think the scrum will cost Aus the world cup. Cooper will be getting crap ball and going backwards on a cold wet night! Then he will regret playing for the convicts over the NZ Maori or Allblacks! (He wouldn't make the allblacks tho)

We moved when I was 8, so I didnt have much of a say in the matter. I played my first game of school boy rugby here and Im fluent in afrikaans aswell.
Anyway I was kicked out of Australia for killing too many FLIES. :-D

Great shame for Robinson and I wish him well for the future
When it comes to excuses mate there is nobody anywhere near you.

Damn. I was actually wondering what happened if Robinson got hurt just the other day.
I think AUS should be OK through the group stages. You might have problems against Ireland and Italy more so at the scrum but it should be OK against the rest.

A huge blow for The Wallabies considering that most of the RWC cup games will be played late at night in damp or wet conditions. Poor conditions equals more scrums due to more knock ons etc. The Wallabies scrum has been below par for years and it's certainly not going to get any better now after losing Robinson. RD will be holding his breath against Samoa and during the Tri Nations and hoping that they get through unscathed because depth is certainly an issue especially in the front row.

@Smash40- Unless those two learn how to scrum Im not so sure.
@Trinats- My country WON the last world cup and the land of my birth is hosting it this year. Youre country needs to learn how to beat England.
FYI, the REDS are on the up, but tell me what did the rest of the Aussie teams do?

I bust my knee in the Army (differently from him) and can empathise. Thankfully ACL repairs are commonplace now and Australia has some of the best knee surgeons in the world - AFL seems to do a lot of knee damage!!
He'll come back fitter and stronger than ever and we'll all need to watch out in 2015.
Sad for him that he's out for this RWC, but good for the rest of us!!!!
All the best, BR - get well soon!

Love it how people rip NZ and ask where we would be without Carter and McCaw. I personally think it would be way worse for Aus if they lost Cooper and maybe Genia. I mean the Saders made the final relying on thier WHOLE team, academy included, when Carter and McCaw were out for most of the season. Imagine if Cooper got injured for the Reds halfway through.. would they have even made the finals ?

So unfortunate, all the best to him.

Really? If Genia and Cooper are still fit, it's in the bag, mate.

No World Cup for Wallabies

this is almost a joke it's that unfortunate. finishes the season, gets picked then walks out on the training ground and does his knee...seriously?
