Where do they go from here? Not even a shadow of the side they once were. I believe they still have the potential to play a lot better than this, but it does reflect the decline of the game's standing down under. Australia has been struggling for quite some time; there are many facets to it. Right now, they just aren't producing the quality that they once did, participation and viewership has dwindled, and union is just the game for the university snob/elite. How could this ever be remedied? The last statistic I saw placed union outside the top 10 for popularity in Australia. Of course they've suffered some injuries, and the odd omission of Hooper really has come back to bite them, but it looks like there are some dark, dark times ahead of the Wallabies.
