Rogers pleads for another chance




Controversial flyhalf selection Mat Rogers is pleading for another chance to prove himself at No 10 against Ireland this Sunday.

Rogers has announced he is desperate to redeem himself after taking a large portion of the blame for the Wallaby backline’s mediocre performance during the scratchy 25-18 win over Italy last weekend.

Connolly has indicated that the selectors are undecided over who should play in the inside halves with the coach reportedly keen to experiment with Lote Tuqiri and Stirling Mortlock as the centres combination, allowing Larkham to return to pivot.

Tai McIsaac will be thrown a selection lifeline as Brendan Cannon experienced neck pain after last weekend’s test. The only other forwards change appears likely to be Phil Waugh at openside where he has trained this week ahead of rival George Smith.
