As shown in the Nines and at Wollongong, Australia still have some exceptionally talented players who can score from almost nothing and burn any opposing team on their day. In some ways, the 'strikepower' of the Kangaroos at the moment is the best it has been for a while, the key difference now with the team is it doesn't play like a team, and they don't have a Plan B. The Kiwis showed that last year, and Tonga this year, that if you turn up and play to a plan, you can beat this Kangaroos side. It's why England can beat Australia in next year's Ashes, because even if they stick with Bennett, the way they played in 17' and 18' will trouble this type of Australian team. Meninga as coach will help limit the improvement of this Kangaroos team. He doesn't have them for enough games to mould them, and it's questionable whether he has the coaching finesse to do so.
