    Dwyer’s View: Lessons from Tri-Nations 2010

    The TriNations Championship is over for 2010. It is appropriate for us to take a look and see what lessons we can learn. For the first time, one team, New Zealand, were undefeated, with Australia winning twice and South Africa finishing last, with only one win from six matches. Nine international matches,...

    Dwyer’s View: All Blacks, 2010

    Over the past few weeks, there has been plenty written and spoken about the New Zealand All Blacks performances so far this season. In the most demanding Tri-Nations tournament, they have, to date, played four and won four, with three bonus points. This is a most formidable start for them and, indeed,...
