History will be kind to me for I intend to write it

Australia were well beaten by New Zealand in their own backyard on Saturday, which has started me wondering if perhaps Wales deserve more credit for their efforts this summer.

Remember that Warren Gatland’s team led 21-18 with just 18 minutes remaining of the opening rubber in New Zealand and were drawing 10-10 with 28 minutes left in the second.

Granted we lost all three games and the third is best passed over in silence, but it does make me wonder if England's triumph in Australia might not be all it has been built  up to be; the 44-40 win in the last game is not the most overwhelming of margins.

Possibly rashly, I have agreed to join Andy H in the Charles Holden at half past eight on Saturday morning for the next Bledisloe Cup game, further to develop this line of thought over a recklessly early beer.
