    Wallabies vs France score & review

    Wallabies 34 – France development XV 13 Aussie Robbie’s been telling us that progress to a Deans-afied Wallabies would be one step at a time, and in so many ways this first test win over France at Stadium Australia proved to be just that. As an example, last week there were a...

    Australia Wallabies vs Ireland Score & Review

    Wallabies 18 – Ireland 12 In so many ways this was a perfect opening hit-out for Aussie Robbie. Importantly the Wallabies won – a loss would have killed the Dingo Deans feelgood factor stone dead. But equally, in this game we saw all of the Wallabies collective traits, both positive and negative,...

    2008 Wallabies Squad announced

    The 30 man train on squad for the Wallabies 2008 (list below) was announced by Aussie Robbie Deans earlier today. Apparently he had no hand in selection (due to his NZ contract still being in place), but having taken note of our Poll, there aren’t that many contentious decisions that weren’t forced...

    Reds vs Waratahs Super 14: score & review, video highlights

    Queensland Reds 11 – NSW Waratahs 18It wasn’t pretty, they got the better of the reffing and thankfully the Hurricanes slipped up in Auckland, but today’s professional win by the Waratahs has ensured some respectability for Australia’s 2008 Super 14 showing with a home semi booked in Sydney. Yet again the back...

  • 2008 Wallaby Selections – have your say

    Poor old Aussie Robbie Deans has been expressly forbidden to even think about Australian rugby until the Crusaders have won this years Super 14. To help him out I thought I’d package up pure selection gold and email it to him, so that he can concentrate on more important things, like getting...

    Stormers vs Waratahs: Score and Review

    Stormers 13 – Waratahs 13 When the Super 14 semi-finals loom, you can always count on the Waratahs to find new ways to bewilder. So on a night with comedy rain coming down (now that’s a power shower) Link McKenzie decides to stick with his masterstroke of benching the one guy in...

    Bulls vs Waratahs review & score

    Bulls 16 – Waratahs 13 The summary of this game is pretty easy. It pissed down rain, the Waratahs got kicked around the park by the Bulls 10 Hougaard, and on top of that the Tahs lineout went to shit. Not a recipe for an entertaining match, and not a good sign...

    Waratahs vs Lions Super 14 score, review, player ratings

    Waratahs 26 – Lions 3 Ok, let’s forget the first half because it really isn’t worth remembering. The sides went in at nil all, the Tahs having committed 15 handling errors, often killing off promising attacking movements. But in a torrential downpour, it was many of the younger players – some surely...

    Force vs Waratahs Super 14 2008 Score & finals run

    Western Force 12 – Waratahs 17 With this hard fought win the Waratahs have taken an unconvincing season start and turned it into the foundations of a serious charge at the 2008 Super 14 semi-finals.

    Waratahs vs Cheetahs Super 14 2008 score

    Waratahs 23 – Cheetahs 19Cut down to 10 minutes of highlights, this game didn’t look too bad. The Tahs backrow seemingly put in an unbelievable performance, with try making intercepts (Waugh), blind offloads (Palu) and try scoring bursts (man of the match Elsom). Read any report though, and the other 70 minutes...
