Half-time thoughts Oz vs. ABs

Half-time thoughts Oz vs. ABs

Oz being far more penetrative and creative with the ball in hand (with
Larkham running the show nicely) than the ABs who have not been well served
by a poor performance from Mehrtens.

-Wind playing havoc with Mehrtens cut-out pass, and AB backs seem ponderous
in the face of excellent, destructive Oz defense.  OZ recycling seems more
consistent and assured despite McCaw

-Impressed with OZ front five that, at present, have the edge on the ABs.

ABs need to show another gear or two in the 2nd half if Oz are to be denied
possession of the Bledisloe.
