    Trials: Trick or Treat?

    It only seems like yesterday that we were wiping the sleep from our eyes, cranking up the laptops and watching the G&GR live blog from Kingsholme as the Dirties took on Glos?

    Seducing Miss Eden Park: 1st Test Preview

    For a Wallaby supporter this is a vicious tease of a match. Standing defiantly is the wily 23 year old Eden Park minx, and laid out like a string of Bacardi Breezers before her is the key to melting this ice maidens defences. It’s only fitting that the French and Italians –...

    All Black watch: Tri-Nation’s Kiwi capers

    Unlike in recent years there’s a real edge to commentary across the ditch for the opening All Blacks v Wallabies Tri-Nation’s series start.
