A self-described 'pleb' who wrote a late-night, beer-fuelled, 800-word rant criticising Australia's Rugby Union side, the Wallabies, is shocked by the viral success of his post.

From Saturday night to Monday morning, Jack Quigley's post on the Wallabies Facebook page had attracted more than 41,000 likes and 4,000 shares.

Mr Quigley is a 29-year-old amateur rugby player and coach from the northern New South Wales city of Lismore. He is also a volunteer weekly sports commentator on ABC North Coast radio.

He said he composed his post after consuming many beers while watching the Wallabies lose to Scotland.

"Cards on the table, I wrote that really late on Saturday night after drowning my sorrows for several hours after the game," Mr Quigley said.

"I wasn't sure if it was a culmination of 15 years of hurt or 16 beers on Saturday afternoon, but it was probably somewhere in between the two. "For me, the most shocking thing was how well my spelling and grammar held up given the circumstances."

Mr Quigley's post bemoaned the lack of passion displayed by the Wallabies, and included an offer to give the team a 15-minute pep talk.

"I'm a pleb. I'm a nobody. My opinion on rugby counts for the square root of f---k all in the grand scheme of things. But I've got one thing. Passion. Passion for the game of rugby. And for the Wallabies. And you can't deny me that. Despite your best efforts. When I was a kid — hell, even now, I would've given my left n-t just to pull on a Wallabies jumper, but when I see you guys run out, I feel like you don't care. I'm willing to drive to Brisbane this week and address the squad. For 15 minutes. That's all I'll need. Then I'll turn around and drive home again. Because I feel like you've lost touch with the common man. When Mr Quigley woke on Sunday, he was overwhelmed with Facebook notifications responding to his post. "

"Clearly I've hit a nerve with the rugby community because the outpouring of support has been remarkable," he said.

"I posted it because I felt like I needed to get a few things off my chest and I was going to leave it at that, but I woke up the next morning with messages on my phone from people I'd never met offering petrol money if I needed to drive to Brisbane, or a place to stay if I needed a place to crash, or if they ever met me they were just willing to buy me a beer.

"When you hit send on that you don't think it's going to be seen by 40,000 people … but it was raw and genuine … people can take it or leave it." Mr Quigley said he had been told by a sports reporter that Wallabies coach Michael Cheika had seen the post.

The ABC has contacted the Wallabies for a response.

However, Mr Quigley said he was unsure exactly what he would say to the team if they took him up on his pep talk offer.

"To be honest, I wouldn't really know what to say," he said.

"I'd take the opportunity if given, and hopefully they could see by looking in my eyes that what they're giving us does not make me proud that these guys are representing me as Australian rugby player, coach, lover."
