  • 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...

  • Reds vs Blues preview

    This game represents the master versus the apprentice. Watching the Reds oscillate from famine to feast then back again by playing their particular style of ‘attacking’ rugby, one can’t help but think they are trying to model their game on a team similar to the Blues. What the Reds lack spectacularly is...

  • Force vs Lions preview

    The good news for the Force pretty much stopped after the final whistle of their game with the hapless Tahs last weekend. Since then, their CEO has resigned, the drums are beating very loudly that Drew Mitchell is packing his bags, they have lost Dick Brown with a dodgy fetlock and line-out...

  • Video: Benn vs the Force

    Earlier this week I stuck up some footage of Ben Alexander tearing it up running ball in hand vs the Bulls. Well here’s a little montage of the incumbent Wallaby number 1 Benn Robinson. It’s just from his first 20 minutes on the park vs the Force last Sat. To my count...

  • Hung, Drawn and QuateRED

    The latest Reds’ promotional campaign features inspiring words with ‘RED’ highlighted, such as ‘HonouRED” “FeaRED” and “InspiRED”, under photos of players who have menacing, determined looks on their faces. I am calling for a Jihad on these posters and wherever someone sees one, they should change the words to ones like, “ButcheRED”,...
