Hawko - Green and Gold Rugby

Hawko

Grew up watching Catchpole and Hawthorne, then later the Ella brothers, on Channel Two on Saturday afternoon. Expert commentary by Cyril Towers. No better rugby education ever to be had.

    Review: Sharks vs Waratahs

    In the lead-up to the game there was just one thing on everyone’s mind: Would the Waratah scrum hold up enough to allow the Waratahs running game to dominate? The Match FIRST HALF: Both teams lined up in a very windy stadium with the wind behind the Waratahs in the first half....
