    Wallabies vs Springboks: Tri-Nations first test score & review

    Australia 16 – South Africa 9I’m tempted to say for the review, read the preview. The core of this story was as predicted – a tough battle that was just one too far for the Springboks. But it was detail around margins that was most interesting from a Wallaby perspective. In such...

    Wallabies vs France -Second test score & review

    Australia 40 – France 10A stunning man of the match performance for the Wallabies by Matt Giteau against a French side who didn’t want to be there, put a deceitful gloss on this performance.

    Australia vs Ireland June 14 Video Highlights

    Unfortunately none of the highlights I could find showed all of the lead up to the second Wallabies try (have now posted it here). Have a look for Mortlock steaming out of the line for the Irish second try and where’s the rest of the pack on their first? Tweet

    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,...
