    QRU – the time is now!!

    My esteemed colleague/fellow Blogger/GAGR Rugby Correspondent, Juan Cote, has called for the ARU to lend a bit more a hand to the Reds in getting them back on top of their game in Please ARU – help the Reds help themselves!!. I’m going to be a little more dramatic. It is time...

    Wallaby Watch – Loosehead Prop

    The incumbent(s): Benn Robinson (NSW): Fat Cat has established himself well and truly in the Wallaby team. He would be, I would think, one of the first two or three players picked. In fact, there aren’t many better loosehead props world-wide than Benn Robinson. I’ll go a step further and say he...

    Video analysis: James O’Connor vs the Lions

    We’ve become accustomed to putting Force victories down to the brilliance of Matt Giteau, but as this season has moved on, so a new star has risen for Western Australia – James O’Connor. So far in my mind he was still really in the ‘talented kid making a cameo’ role, but with...

    Wallaby Watch – Open Side Flanker

    The incumbent(s): Phil Waugh (NSW): The Waratah skipper has been criticised by many this season, albeit mostly by non-Tah fans. It’s fair to say he looked off the pace and incapable of really stamping his authority on a game. This has changed lately, perhaps it’s the contract talks, and he’s starting to...

    Tahs vs Force – preview

    A fascinating clash is brewing on Saturday night and already the mind games (or are they brain farts?) have started. What we should have is a classic case of ‘rugby good’ vs ‘rugby evil’, just like the Wallabies vs England. In the ‘good’ corner is the Force. Full of speed and guile...

    Aussie S14 team of week 9

    1. Ben Alexander (Brumbies) – Superb performance with his workrate and willingness to truck the ball-up, just what was needed on a night where the conditions were appalling. 2. Squeeky Moore (Brumbies) – Lead the Brumbies front row which dominated the Stormers pack. Had a pretty solid night with his line-out work...

    Wallaby Team if selected on this weeks form

    15 Mark Gerrard (ACT) – Gerrard must think he has a better chance at socceroo selection this year with some great skills controlling the oval ball. Scored a chip and chase with 4 extra fly-hacks to spark the brumbies back into the game. He then went on to nail a drop goal...

    How the Force thrashed the Reds

    No doubt there were a bunch of reasons why the Reds got whacked by the Force on Saturday, and as usual Matt Giteau had a lot to do with it. But for me the, real heroes of the Force’s 5 try triumph were the back row of Brown, Hodgson, Horua (when he...

    Who’s the best attacking Australian player?

    Based on the criteria below, I guess it’s down to Drew Mitchell, Diggers, Cliffy and David Pocock. Surprisingly for me is Scott Higginbotham, playing his first full season and featuring in both tables…onya Higgers!!! I love stats. Tweet

    Not so pretty in pink

    Western Force 10 – Sharks 22 For highlights follow read more link below Watching both the Tahs and Force today was the rugby equivalent of coitus interruptus. Prolonged foreplay, relentless pounding, exciting climax….and then a damp squibb. In the meantime the Saffas and Kiwis, having barely got a sniff of space, had...

    Juan’s Wallabies

    We are approximately a quarter of the way through the competition so it is timely to give Robbie Deans a hand and let him know what a Wallaby 22 would look like, based on this seasons’ form, if the Wallabies were playing a test match next week. 1. Benn Robinson (Tahs) –...
