  • Exclusive Mooney post match interview

    Here’s an interview from Harfish with Phil Mooney following the game against the ‘Saders last weekend. Particularly interesting comments about Berrick Barnes at the end I thought. Good onya Harfish for sending it in and also for re-recording your questions so we could understand your vowels ;)

  • Preview & teams: Shorks vs Tahs

    What a crunch match – whoever loses this one is pretty much fucked for the semis, so expect a do or die belting. The wheels have looked distincly wobbly on the Sharks season of late and the destabilisation has continued this week with a number of injuries and suspensions. Everyones fantasy 9...

  • Reds vs Crusaders preview

    I remember watching the Crusaders give the Tahs a record hiding some years back and thinking the likes of that score would never be repeated. I’ve given it some thought, and I reckon there is a distinct possibility that it might well be repeated this weekend. The Crusaders have romped back into...

  • S14 stat attack: Aussie players

    We let our stat gimp loose on the teams and he couldn’t stop himself delving into the individual players as well. So here they all are. For the most part they reinforce what you might already suspect, but there are a few surprises……..

  • S14 stat attack; the teams

    With the comp drawing to a very congested end, it is interesting to look at a range of stats and line it up against the respective team’s positions on the ladder. What I find surprising is the lowly ‘line-out win %’ of the NZ teams, I guess they aren’t really blessed with...

  • Queensland Reds – that’s life

    Frank Sinatra once sang “you’re riding high in April, shot down in May” – I’m not sure, but I think I heard Phil Mooney humming the same tune at the end of last night’s game against the Brumbies. Sure, the Reds might not have been exactly riding high last week, but after...

  • Video analysis: Berrick vs Blues

    Seeing Jason O’Connors clips from the weekend made me wonder about how he stacked up against who everyone one has as a shoo-in for the Wallaby 12 spot – Berrick Barnes. Here’s the Reds vice captains edited highlights. There’s no doubt he had a brilliant game, predominantly playing at first receiver, despite...

  • Video funny: Shmoo vs the pole

    It’s OK. Hair gel was intact.

  • Video analysis: James O’Connor vs the Lions

    We’ve become accustomed to putting Force victories down to the brilliance of Matt Giteau, but as this season has moved on, so a new star has risen for Western Australia – James O’Connor. So far in my mind he was still really in the ‘talented kid making a cameo’ role, but with...
