  • Best and worst Australian defensive players

    In the last few weeks I’ve done an analysis of the best attacking Australian players in the Super 14, this week, I finally found some reliable defensive stats and I’ve done the numbers – the results are below. As a minimum, forwards must have attempted more than 30 tackles and backs more...

    This is a letter from the President of the QRU: “Dear Rugby Fan, I need your help...

  • Shawn Mackay

      The terrible news overnight is that Shawn Mackay, the ACT Brumbies forward, died from complications following...

  • The run home for Aussie S14 contenders

    With the teams now rounding the bend and about to enter the home straight of this year’s Super 14, I thought it timely to have a look at the run home of the three Australian finals contenders. It is interesting the three teams at the head of the table are yet to...

  • How the Force thrashed the Reds

    No doubt there were a bunch of reasons why the Reds got whacked by the Force on Saturday, and as usual Matt Giteau had a lot to do with it. But for me the, real heroes of the Force’s 5 try triumph were the back row of Brown, Hodgson, Horua (when he...

  • Force vs Reds Live Score

    Western Force vs Queensland Reds Super 14 (04/03/2009)     Close   10:08 Moses:  Reds kickoff, Shepherd touches it in the air then the ball goes out… bad mistake and Reds get a lineout on the Force 22 10:10 Moses:  Cross just tried a stupid no look behind the back pass, straight to Quade....

  • Tahs vs Stormers preview & teams

    As the weeks roll on, it becomes increasingly foolish to tip against the Tahs. Love em or hate ‘em, they’re showing a quality missing in the rest of the Aussie sides at the moment, and that’s the ability to win. I sense the tide of opinion may have turned a little, from...

  • Video – Tyrone takes on the Sharks

    Juan’s stats post showed George’s younger brother to have by far the highest line break rate at a whopping 17% of all his runs. These few clips from last Saturday’s loss to the Shorks brings those numbers to life. With feet like these, can he really be kept out of the Wallabies...

  • The Best in Australia by the numbers

    After half a packet of Tim Tams and five Rum and Cokes, I’ve done some data sets based on various criteria to see how each of the Australian provinces and individual Australian players are going thus far in the Super 14 for this year. Looking the above data, the thing that stands...

  • Wallaby coach on the ‘Sabbatical’ debate

    Incoming Wallaby skills coach, Richard Graham, has given his support to top line players taking short-term overseas contracts as a way of improving their skills and re-invigorating themselves. Graham took a longer term view about player development, distinctly opposed to the short term view recently put forward by former All Black, Christian...

  • Reds vs Chiefs live score

    REDS 26 CHIEFS 50 Full time A fine night in Brizzie tonight after a few showers earlier today.  Both teams are as program. This will be a cracker, after the Blues losing last night the Chiefs can take the title of the best NZ team with a win while the Reds have...

  • The Burgwan is back

    He only played the first half due to a corked thigh, but great news for the Tahs and Wallabies rugby is that Luke Burgess seems to be hitting form again. It’s pretty fitting as it was against the Blues last year that the Burgwan first took his chance for stardom by turning...
