  • Video highlights wk 3: Reds, Brumbies, Force

    Here they are, highlights of the round 3 Super 14 games for the ACT Brumbies, Queensland Reds and Western Force. Waratahs highlights vs the Bulls in that game’s review. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bK83MJns-wE

  • Force v Chiefs Review: Once Were Warriors

    You’ve got to feel for the Force. Not a lot of depth and without all their best players these Western warriors have…umm…’gone west’. I think their season is just about over and despite the return of a few Super 14 quality players this week it might have been just that little bit...

  • Warts-and-all Ballymore

    If Ballymore is Qld rugby’s spiritual home, then the Rugby-Gods were certainly not smiling on the Reds last night. From the diabolical weather, to the poor crowd, to the result of the game, to the injuries to Rocket Rod and Hynes, there wasn’t a whole lot that went right for the home...

  • Super 14 Tipping Comp: Round Three

    Tahs fan SA was our player of the round, getting every game right with a few bonus points thrown in. The top 10 this week is packed with Reds fans (who must have had their doubts about the Reds winning two games in a row), and Crusaders fans, like our new leader...

  • Live Score: Reds vs Blues

    FINAL SCORE: BLUES 27 (Anthony Boric, Alby Mathewson, Rene Ranger, Rudi Wulf tries Stephen Brett, Lachie Munro cons Brett pen) bt QUEENSLAND REDS 18 (Will Genia, Laurie Weeks tries Quade Cooper con 2 pens) at Ballymore

  • Brumbies snatch win against gallant Stormers

    The CA Brumbies have snatched a heart stopping 19-17 win against the Stormers at Newlands. In a game that was riddled with handling errors at crucial times, neither team looked like coming away with the win until a George Smith intercept and try under the posts with 2 minutes on the clock...

  • Video: Tahs vs Bulls preview

    So how does a team that contested the final only two years ago, and only just missed the semi’s last year suddenly look quite so bereft of any hope whatsoever in a regular game of footy? That’s the question I keep coming back to when looking forward to this weekend’s match up....

  • Brumbies vs Stormers preview

    The CA Brumbies have moved on to Cape Town for the second match of their African tour against the in form Stormers.  After a 2nd half they’d rather forget against the Bulls last week, the Brumbies will be looking  for redemption; hoping for a similar first half effort that had them leading...

  • Reds v Blues preview

    The Reds head to Ballymore this weekend with a full spinnaker and a chance to win back-to-back games for the first time since beating both the Bulls and Cats in 2006. They face the Auckland Blues who come into the game with mixed form after a loss and a win in the...

  • Born Free (to play wherever).

    With the Melbourne Rebels now in the player market place, not too long after the WA Force entered, a subset issue is now a subject of hot discussion.  Who can lay claim to the player.  It is a common cry out of NSWRU and the Sydney club land that they created the...

  • Rebels, Good or Bad for Aussie Rugby?

    Some think they will cause player drain and weaken Aussie super 15 chances, others think they will...

  • Video: G&GR Super 14 Round 2 Review

    And so we look back on week 2 with mixed views. The Reds won, and won well, which everyone seems pretty pleased about. The Brumbies, Force and Tahs all lost on the road which shouldn’t really be a surprise should it? Perhaps we expected more from the all-star Brumbies, but they were...

  • Back to Ballymore

    This Saturday night Super Rugby heads back to Ballymore for the first time since 2005.  It shapes...

  • Video analysis: Tahs vs Stormers review

    For followers of the Waratah’s fortunes, the last two games have been critical indicators as to whether last year’s malaise was a bump in the road, or a downward trend. The last minute win against the Reds last week papered over an uninspiring performance, but this weekend’s shellacking in Capetown (27-6 to...

  • Video highlights Super 14 round 2

    Here they all are. Video highlights of each of the Aussie games from round 2. I believe the first Reds try might be missing, but keep an eye out for that in Try of the round anyhow. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-ump2RmqBs For the rest of the games click

  • Bulls on parade

    The Bulls have scored an emphatic 50-32 win over the Brumbies at Loftus Versfeld. A man of the match performance from Morne Steyn contributed a personal haul of 35 points. The game was one the Brumbies had targeted for a win as they got their 2 game African tour underway, but once...

  • Reds just too good

    The Reds beat the super team of Super rugby last night by 21 points and secured a four try bonus point in the process. Neither event has happen that often for the Reds and the crowd on hand also looked genuinely excited and animated, that is an even rarer event. Season’s past...

  • Melbourne Rebels sign Cipriani

    English rock-star flyhalf/fullback, and Josh Lewsey punching bag, Danny Cipriani, today confirmed he has agreed to terms with the Melbourne Rebels. Cipriani becomes the Rebels’ inaugural signing and with a two year contract, has effectively turned his back on English rugby. There had been much speculation about his signing but Rebels coach...

  • Live Call: Reds vs Evil saders

    QUEENSLAND REDS 41 (Quade Cooper 2, Rod Davies, Digby Ioane tries Cooper 3 cons 5 pens)  CRUSADERS 20 (Andrew Ellis, Brad Thorn tries Daniel Carter 2 cons 2 pens) at Suncorp Stadium.

  • Brumbies v Bulls preview

    The CA Brumbies have made 3 changes to their team which take on the Bulls at Loftus at the excellent TV rating time  of 2:05am on Sunday. The Brumbies have named a side that includes Wallabies Matt Giteau and Rocky Elsom, after both were left out of the match day squad in...
