Rugby World Cup countdown: Aussie tactics are leaked

RugbyAustralia's tactics have been leaked ahead of tomorrow's Rugby World Cup final against New Zealand.

A copy of a tactics sheet held by scrum coach Mario Ledesma has been photographed this week at training.

It appears to show how the Wallabies plan to deal with the threat of New Zealand's strike-runners, Kieran Read, Nehe Milner-Skudder and Julian Savea.

Ahead of tomorrow's final, the shortlist for the Player on the Year award has also been unveiled.

New Zealand's Dan Carter and Julian Savea are both short-listed along with Australian flankers Michael Hooper and David Pocok.

Also nominated are Welsh second-row Alun Wyn Jones and Scotland's Greig Laidlaw.

At the Rugby World Cup tonight, Argentina take-on South Africa in the bronze medal match at 8pm.
