    2011 Super Rugby NSW Waratahs Player of the Year

    The NSW Waratahs managed to make the finals of Super Rugby again, but with the form they showed in their first two and last two games of the regular season, 2011 will go down as another season of lost opportunity. Let’s not forget they gave the 2011 Super Rugby Champions an almighty...

    Super Rugby Round Two Review

    Round Two of Super Rugby, 2011-style, saw two more local derbies for the Aussie teams. The first was an emotional last-minute win by the Rebels over the Brumbies, while the second was a clinical takedown of the Reds by the increasingly impressive Waratahs. So, on to the whos, whats and whys of...

    G&GR Wallaby Player of the Year: Spring Tour

    The Wallabies began the Spring Tour on somewhat of a high. A win over the Boks in Bloemfontein gave renewed hope, but still… those All Blacks. They were so damn good. Five tough test matches beginning with a fourth Bledisloe, followed by challenges against the Welsh, the Poms, the Italians and finally...

    Wallaby Player Ratings v England (Twickers)

    I wish I was rating the Pommies. I’d find it a hell of a lot easier. A couple of 9s on the wing, another at scrumhalf and a few in the pack. Throw in some 8’s in the midfield and at the back, as well as on the side of the scrum...

    Hong Kong Phooey – bugger all changes to Wallabies

    Robbie Deans has steered clear of any dramatic changes to his Wallaby side to take on the All Blacks in yet another Bledisloe dead rubber this weekend. There are two solitary changes to the team that were run down by the All Blacks in their last encounter.  Drew Mitchell, who missed the Sydney test...

    Wallaby and All Black Test Teams Named

    The big talking point in the Wallaby team named to play the All Blacks this weekend is the move by Matt Giteau back to five eighth. Robbie Deans decided to use him as the playmaker instead of leaving him at inside centre. Giteau replaces the suspended Quade Cooper – whose suspension is...

    Wallabies named. Deans pleads insanity

    They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome.  If that’s the case then Robbie should be looking over his shoulder for the men in white coats.  In the end, the Aussie selectors have been left with little choice but...

    The opening test of the season is always an exciting time. The unknown. The whole season is in front of us and we could win them all! The Tri-nations, the Bledisloe back where it belongs, flog the Poms, clean up the oirish, and it all starts with this Fijian entree. If this...
