  • Chiefs vs Reds; review & video highlights

    Chiefs 32 – Reds 20.The Reds seemed to come into this game thinking they could out-run the Chiefs and at half time the approach seemed to have blown up on them, as they went into the sheds 3 tries to nil down. But the game got a real shot in the arse...

  • Reds vs Force Super 14: Video highlights and review

    Reds 29 – Force 12.Despite sleeping on it to try and come up with some inspiration, I can’t find any glowing words about this Reds performance – unlike their showing away at the Bulls. Defense held firm, but otherwise this match was more about what the Force couldn’t do, than what the...

  • Waratahs vs Lions Super 14 score, review, player ratings

    Waratahs 26 – Lions 3 Ok, let’s forget the first half because it really isn’t worth remembering. The sides went in at nil all, the Tahs having committed 15 handling errors, often killing off promising attacking movements. But in a torrential downpour, it was many of the younger players – some surely...

  • Blues vs Brumbies Super 14 Score & Review

    Blues 11 – Brumbies 16 To beat the third placed side at their home is no mean feat, but the truth is that this Blues side is rapidly unraveling and it simply couldn’t take the pressure that this make-do Brumbies side managed to muster. It wasn’t a scintillating stuff, but the Canberran...

  • Force vs Waratahs Super 14 2008 Score & finals run

    Western Force 12 – Waratahs 17 With this hard fought win the Waratahs have taken an unconvincing season start and turned it into the foundations of a serious charge at the 2008 Super 14 semi-finals. Thanks to Sky only showing two matches this weekend, I’ve been able to see diddly-squat of this...

  • Super 14 round 8; Aussie round-up, scores & highlights

    Some very big ups (Waratahs and Force) and some very low downs (Brumbies and Reds) in round 8 of the 2008 Super 14. Both the Force and the Tahs got exactly what they needed. The Western Australians needed to show that they could dig deep to win against tough opposition at home,...

  • All aboard the Tah Bandwagon

    Waratahs 37 – Blues 16 There were 40 foot high billboards saying “SEASON TURNING POINT” on this game for the Tahs and they stood up just when it mattered. As there were so many outstanding performances I thought I’d spray a few thoughts at some player ratings. 15. Two Dads (Norton-Knight). Brought...

  • Aussie Super 14 teams; half way review

    We’re now past half way of the 2008 Super 14 (already?) and it’s been long enough now to get a handle on how the Aussie sides are doing. I’ve thrown a few thoughts, see if they tally up with yours. As a reminder, here’s where the teams are in the table after...

  • Sharks vs Reds, Super 14 2008 score & review

    Sharks 22 – Reds 10Thanks to Sky not giving a toss, I’ve been able to see sweet f-a of this game. But as it happens, a good pommy mate of mine – Cap’n Dan – is a BA pilot down route in Cape Town. Bored, and hankering to bet on something, he...

  • Western Force vs Stormers, score & review

    Western Force 16 – Stormers 32 During the week John Mitchell said “Last year we got our pants pulled down in the middle stages of the competition, so it is important we keep our focus on what we have got to improve on” That Fremantle doctor must be a-whistling around John’s kiwi...

  • Waratahs vs Cheetahs Super 14 2008 score

    Waratahs 23 – Cheetahs 19Cut down to 10 minutes of highlights, this game didn’t look too bad. The Tahs backrow seemingly put in an unbelievable performance, with try making intercepts (Waugh), blind offloads (Palu) and try scoring bursts (man of the match Elsom). Read any report though, and the other 70 minutes...

  • Highlanders vs Force, Lions vs Reds scores, highlights

    Highlanders 28 – Western Force 36 Another impressive win from the Force who, with a second victory in a row over on the Shaky Isles, are now definitely Australia’s brightest looking chance in the 2008 Super 14 comp. Yet again they came from behind being 28-20 down with...

  • Super 14 2008. Brumbies vs Cheetahs, score & review

    Brumbies 29 – Cheetahs 23 Laurie Fisher might not feel quite so happy about it, but the loss of just about every skerrick of experience from the Brumbies backline this year through retirement and injury, is probably one of the best things that could have happened for the distant future of ACT...

  • Crusaders vs Waratahs Super 14 score & review

    Crusaders 34 – Waratahs 7. For 50 minutes it looked like the Waratahs might have kept this one close. Heroic defence, most notably by the captain Phil Waugh, and contest at the breakdown knocked the Crusaders off their usual stride and forced them into errors and turnovers. It was 6-0 at the...
