From South Africa’s line-speed to Ireland’s signature backline move, this is what to expect from the world’s best in Japan
I look to their big win over the All Blacks in Perth and Nic White was fantastic. The Wallabies changed direction a lot in that game with White (9) often bouncing back on the short side. He was sniping and attacking the 1, 2, 3 defenders on either side of the ruck. What impresses me about him is that when he gets to a ruck his decision is already made because he has his head up and has identified the space.
