How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park

  How Dave Rennie’s words came back to haunt him at Eden Park Days after the weekend’s beating, Dave Rennie has a headache of his own making. He probably wishes his words were less prophetic, rather than more so. He is at risk of becoming a Cassandra in a foreign land. Before the first Bledisloe match at the Cake Tin, the new Wallabies head honcho expostulated on the need for good defence. “The teams that have beaten the All Blacks in the past have limited them to less than 15 or 16 points. That’s our challenge,” he said. “The sides that have beaten them have defended really well so you can’t get away from that.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Wallabies centre Jordan Petaia said the sudden death of his father in August had left him in a "dark place" but that he found some comfort among relatives in New Zealand.

Petaia, who will line up against the All Blacks in Saturday's third Bledisloe Cup clash, became Australia's youngest Rugby World Cup debutant in Japan last year but said 2020 had been a "dark year".

"It’s been pretty tough," the 20-year-old told Rugby Australia's website https://www.rugby.com.au/news/2020/10/30/wallabies-star-jordan-petaia-opens-up-on-dark-year-ahead-of-all-blacks-test-in-sydney-2020.

"But having the friends and family I do, and the support of the Reds family and everyone around me, it made it, not easy, but better to cope with."

Queensland Reds coach Brad Thorn, whose own father died of a heart attack when he was a teenager, helped the young talent return to the game during the Super Rugby AU competition.

Petaia came off the bench for an eye-catching cameo against the All Blacks at Eden Park two weeks ago where the Wallabies fell 27-7 to go 1-0 down in the four-test Bledisloe series.

The result was a disappointment but Petaia was able to reconnect with his father's siblings, who were in the Auckland crowd.

"I had a lot of family in Auckland that were able to get out – about 20-30 that were there," said Petaia, who will start at centre at Sydney's Olympic stadium on Saturday.

"It was not a good game, but I was happy for them to be happy for me to be playing and shed a bit of light on such a dark year."
