    First Thoughts – Wallabies v England, 2010 EOYT

    Nothing like a chance to smash the poms at the cabbage patch, so there was some high hopes for this match. Given the poor showing from the Wallabies in Cardiff, up front anyway, there was naturally a lot of talk about how they would hold up to the might of the English...

    EOYT 2010 Wallabies v Wales Player Ratings

    Well, winning two in a row isn’t a bad thing for this team, the more we can string together, the better. But it is a mark of the increase in expectations we have on the team, that a solid win has the feeling of not being enough. A three try to one...

    Scrums – The hits and the misses

    “the purpose of the scrum is to restart play quickly, safely and fairly after a minor infringement or a stoppage.” (Law 20). There is no doubt that one of the features of our game is the forward play, and the pinnacle of this is the dominant scrum. Much is to be said...

    First Thoughts – Honkers Bledisloe

    For a test between no. 1 and 2, there wasn’t much hype in the lead up. Yet, this was still a Bledisloe, and with the Aussies staring down the barrel of an eleventh straight loss, there was something to watch for… From the kick off it seemed there may have been something...

    Wallabies V Springboks 3: A Corner Turned?

    As the Mandela Challenge Plate is the last cup still available to the Wallabies before the end of the Tri-Nations and the start of the Spring Tour, it was all there. The series on the line standing at 1 game a piece. Of added importance to the Men of Gold is Drewster...

    Player Ratings – Bledisloe 2

    When I sat down to write these, I made a conscious decision to approach them more positively than Lance Free did last week. As the game wore on, that proved very difficult. All in all in was another wallaby performance that was well below were it should be.

    Bledisloe 1 First Thoughts

    The surface, the cheating, the running, the lack of kicking was all we could talk about in the lead up to this match. Of course the fact the good guys hadn’t beaten the blacks for 7 games in a row was brought up a couple of times, but after the kick off,...

    Winter Tours Tipping Comp – Final Week

    Congratulations go to Jimbo, winner of the Winter tours tipping comp. Jimbo appeared to take the view that a slow, well timed rise to the summit was the way to do it (shadowing the Wallabies???), moving from 34th after the first round, he hit his straps going to 6th, then 3rd before...

    Winter Tours Tipping Comp – Week 3

    A terrible week for Wallaby fans, but the tipping rolls on. This weeks tips have seen another top ten shake up and there is now only two and a half points separating the top 10, no one is safe, in fact anyone in the top 30 could win this, mathematically speaking. This...

    Wallabies Vs England Test 2 – First Thoughts

    All the talk in the lead up to this test was about whether the Wallabies front row have learnt anything and parity, or better, would be achieved or would we be in for more of the same? Well, the stage was set, 5 minutes in and we have the first scrum set....

    Winter Tours Tipping Comp – Week 2

    The comp has opened up a little with 4 games to tip last week. Drewboy had a corker, picking all 4 results and tipping the margin for the Wallabies v England game as well as getting margin points in the Argentina v Scotland game. #1 Tah relinquished the lead by only dropping...

    Winter Tours Tipping – Week 1

    A nice soft start to this short tipping comp, with only two games to worry about. The only way to get yourself into an early lead with this one, was margins. Cheezel did the job with the Wallabies vs Fiji, picking the 46 point margin, and #1 Tah cleaned up the Saffa...

    Wallabies Vs Fiji – Match Report

    The opening test of the season is always an exciting time. The unknown. The whole season is in front of us and we could win them all! The Tri-nations, the Bledisloe back where it belongs, flog the Poms, clean up the oirish, and it all starts with this Fijian entree. If this...
