RENNIE WANTS MORE AFTER WALLABIES WIN
IT was a historic first for Townsville, but it was also a major first for the Wallabies.
The 27-8 demolition of the Pumas in front of more than 23,000 screaming North Queensland fans, was a third-straight win for Dave Rennie’s men. It was the first time they have done so in more than four years.
But still the “grumpy” coach wants to see more from his troops.
In the past three weeks they have knocked off the reigning world champions twice and an emotional Pumas.
But Rennie believed the Wallabies lacked the killer instinct after they let several tries go begging at Queensland Country Bank Stadium.
The Wallabies appeared to make breaks at will throughout the second half, but could not find that last pass to seal the deal.
“(There is) a bit of frustration that we had a lot of opportunities late to put them out of the game but we didn’t do the obvious. We have just got to throw one more pass,” Rennie said. “We’re always looking for perfection … we have to be better there.”
It has been the same frank appraisals that have helped the Wallabies continue to grow under the coach.
