    Western Force caned but miracles do happen

    You don’t have to be Einstein to work out that two into one won’t go. However, one into two is an entirely different matter. In a miracle of modern science as ground breaking as the Theory of Relativity James Rabbit O’Connor created a new position in the game of rugby at the...

    Force v Hurricanes: Outmanned & Outgunned

    This says it all: unavailable for selection are Andre Pretorius (hamstring, season), David Pocock (finger, 6 weeks), Richard Brown (shoulder, 6 weeks), Cameron Shepherd (thigh, 6 weeks), Nick Cummins (foot, 3-4 weeks), Mark Bartholomeusz (neck, 1-2 weeks), Ryan Cross (shoulder). That’s taken so much experience and talent out of this side that the Force will be huge...

    All Blacks’ slam is rather grand

    From the outhouse to the penthouse. In the space of five matches on their Northern Tour the All Blacks have stunningly recovered their reputation. In a match that could only be described as a showcase of free flowing power rugby, the Kiwis blew Les Bleus out of the Stade Velodrome in Marseille....

    Wobblies woefull in Wellington

    So far this season the Wallabies have let themselves down in just one, sometimes two facets of the game. Tonight, they fucked every single one. The scrum, lineout, breakdown, kicking, discipline, running, passing; all sucked. It was only an average defensive performance that kept them anywhere near the match. The heroics in...

    All Blacks reach tipping point

    They say you’re only as good as your last game. For a number of All Blacks that was last week as Graeme Henry has made wholesale changes to the team to play the Wallabies on Saturday. But it’s not only the players that might need changing, it’s the coaching team. Henry and...

    All Blacks v Springboks: the final countdown

    The big question on everyone’s lips in the crunch Tri-Nation’s test in Hamilton on Saturday is whether South Africa will revert to type by employing their successful aerial game last seen in Capetown a couple of tests ago. This successful strategy which contributed mightily to them winning their three home tests is...

    This game is the first in a heavyweight encounter between South Africa and New Zealand in Bloemfontein. For the All Blacks to retain their Tri-Nations title a win here would be a huge step in the right direction.

    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. The apparent lack of success in the domestic lead-up matches by the All Blacks has left the populace a little nervous about what’s to come. The scorn with which Graham Henry and...

    Tri-Nation’s All Blacks looking shaky

    The Aotearoans are asking themselves just where is the depth after the 2009 All Black Tri-Nations squad was announced by Graham Henry earlier this week. There are plenty of names in it that just don’t run off the tongue like de Malmanche, Crockett, Franks, Evans and Ross. It’d be true to say that...

    All Blacks: Normal transmission resumed!

    New Zealand 14 France 10 Now that’s what I call an old style All Black performance amongst the mud, the blood and the beer. What a terrific, intense and wholehearted game with the ABs muscling up against Le Frogs in the abysmal Wellington weather. I remember reading about former All Black fullback Allan Hewson...

    All black and ‘bleu’

    France 27 – New Zealand 22 O.K. Lets put all the crap to bed first. The excuse the Nuw Zulenders will use for their 22 – 27 defeat to Les Bleus will be that they were without McCaw, Carter, So’olialo, Ali Williams, Conrad Smith, Sivivatu, Wulf, Kahui, etc etc yawn! However, let’s not forget...
