  • Rugby World Cup 2007: Wallabies squad announced

    The Australian squad to go to France was announced last night. While there weren’t too many howls about players left out, there aren’t many slaps on the back for any visionary selections either. In the backs, Huxley (lucky idiot) and Berrick Barnes made it in.While Barnes hasn’t had a great year for...

  • Trinations score & stats: New Zealand vs Australia

    All Blacks 26 – Wallabies 12 The all blacks picked up the Tri-Nations and Bledisloe cups today with a good second half performance against Australia. It wasn’t all New Zealand’s way though with Australia unlucky to go in at half time 12-9 down, having had the lion share of possession, territory and...

  • Boys will be boys, but do they need to be idiots?

    Is Julian Huxley the most unlucky or the most idiotic member of the Wallabies right now? (and that’s saying something with LT around) If you didn’t know, Julian Huxley is out of Saturday’s momentous game, because at a brumbies piss up Gene Fairbanks tackled him, thereby corking his leg. Can you imagine...

  • Tri-Nations: New Zealand vs Australia, Bledisloe preview

    This weekend effectively sees the grand final of the 2007 tri-nations, with the Wallabies taking on the All Blacks in Auckland. The twists and turns of this year’s competition means the default supposition of only a month ago – that the ABs should stroll this one – is no longer a foregone...

  • Tri-Nations Review: Australia vs South Africa 2nd Test

    Lack-luster comeback does enough Wallabies 25 – Springboks 17 THE Wallabies dominated this rugby game. Unfortunately though, for most of the test it was in the wrong way. Except for the 35 minutes around half-time, Australia did a great job of giving it away.Overall, I don’t know what to make of this...

  • Tri-Nations Rugby: Australia vs South Africa Preview

    WITH the Springboks bringing only two of the side that played the All Blacks, it’s a thankless task for the Wallabies. The only win in the public’s eye will be a points land-slide to the Aussies, which will be no mean feat. So what can we expect? There aren’t a stack of...

  • More mungo madness

    Well I guess we can’t say we didn’t see it coming; the night club fight in South Africa, the phone call prank with Michael O’Connor and now being too drunk to get out of bed and train for a piffling Tri-Nations game. Unfortunately for Australian rugby, the Tuqiri top has been spinning...

  • What changes for the Wallabies?

    Everyone agrees that the Wallabies showed an impressive level of grit against South Africa last Saturday. So is the team now set, or are there improvements on selection to be made? I believe there are small but important changes to made: 1) I’m gobsmacked Staniforth wasn’t on the bench for the test...
