Podcast 300 – Freakshow

The GAGR lads are back for another week, and for their three-hundredth podcast Hugh, Jamie and Nick keep it short and sweet with a preview of the upcoming Spring Tour, as well as the other big talking points in Australian Rugby. Only three burning questions this week.

The Five Three Burning Questions:

1.  Is winning 3/3 a realistic chance for the Wallabies?
2. The Farrell Hit: did Gus Gardner get it right?
3. Rapid Rugby: what are our thoughts on Twiggy’s new announcement?

  • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

    Cheers guys.

    I’m a huge Adam Coleman fan, but I’ve gotta say, I agree with Hugh that he’s been really out of form. Perhaps part of it is that he just isn’t quite up to calling the line out at this level, but he seems to have lost that controlled aggression he had last year. It has been too much aggro, not enough brains this year. I also think his work rate has declined significantly.

    Hopefully he has a good tour.

    • Andy

      Agree on that. Not sure what Miller has been seeing this year but he hasn’t improved.

    • Keith Butler

      Me too. He’s definately gone off the boil. Purely from a SR perspective give the captaincy at the Rebels to someone else so that he ca get his mojo back to the benefit of both the Rebs and the G&G.

  • Mart

    Remember this from Cliffy. Consistency in reffing is rugby’s problem. This hit is more legit than Farrells


    • Pedro

      Palu’s was the best example of getting it wrong. I always think about it when it comes to these decisions, especially how O’Driscoll said it was a bad decision and Keith wood said it was correct.

      I can see where gus was coming from but it seemed more sixty/forty in favour of a penalty.

      • D. Braithwaite’s The Brumbies

        Poite’s decision on Bismarck du Plessis was the worst I’ve ever seen.

        • Pedro

          Yeah that’s up there too.

      • Keith Butler

        On that showing Farrell should have been given a yellow. Cliffy was at least attempting a wrap which Farrell was clearly not.

  • Will Honeycomb

    Farrell got a yellow card in the World Cup match for shoulder charging Matt Giteau. His no arm charge last Saturday was more blatant. He has form for this sort of behaviour

  • Troy

    My understanding of the name change from World Series Rugby to Global Rapid Rugby was because it was to close to World Rugby (ex IRB)
