    Newlands – Lost Bokketunities

    I haven’t had a chance to re-watch the footage yet, but here are some initial thoughts from Newlands last night. The performance of our young bench players was very encouraging. JOC was exceptional from the outset, TPN played brilliantly and together with Ben Alexander and Benn Robinson formed a scrum so dominant...

    Wallabies team for Newlands

    No shockers for the run on team this Saturday. The slight eyebrow raise comes from the bench where we go back to a 4-3 split. The gnarly Phil Waugh makes way for Marcia Hynes. Captions for shmoo opposite? Team below. Tweet

    How to beat the Boks

    The Boks have lost only one match this year, the last test of the Lions series. In the other two games of that series the Lions were well and truly in it until the end and probably should have won the first test but for some diabolical handling errors. By analysing the...

    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 –...

    Dicking around over: team vs France

    Adam Ashley-Cooper puts JO’C on the bench and Shmoo Mitchell’s back for Hynes in a pretty logical starting 15. The openside division of the team remains strong though with Waugh and Pocock making the bench. Oh, and still no LT or Tim Tam. For full team Tweet

    Wallabies vs Italy preview

    Obviously, after last week’s test, both Robbie Deans and Nick Mallet came to a gentlemen’s agreement that both would field their second XV’s for this week’s tests.

    Wallaby team vs Italy; first test

    Dingo’s still not dicking around, putting out a full-strength Wallaby side for this test in Canberra. The one unforced change being Rabbit O’Connor coming in for AAC who slides to the bench. AntipoDeans was obviously as impressed as everyone else. The forced change is Mumm in for the injured Hodgson, and Noodles...
