    Rocky’s sterling effort

    Rocky Elsom has been named Wallaby captain for the upcoming Northern Hemisphere tour beginning later this month. He has taken over from Stirling Mortlock who was also named in the side.

    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...

    Wallabies unchanged for Wellington

    It’s the same Wallaby team that did the Boks in Brisbane (see below) – the question being whether they can play with the same intensity. TPN and Lakky are reputed to have gotten over their rib injuries, but to cover Turner just in case, Kurtley Beale has also been flown out as...

    Player ratings: Wallabies vs Boks Brisvegas

    The most important thing out of this match was the pure, undiluted class A confidence that the Wallabies scored. A very solid scoreline, and this was squandering a load of points. Here are my payer ratings, tally with what you saw? Scoring system at the bottom. 1. Benn Robinson: Another scrum dominated,...

    My 50th – Robbie Deans

    When a man turns 50, it is a time of reflection. It’s the sort of thing that gives an individual pause for thought. What is the higher meaning of life? How can the collective group that is mankind profit from one blokes endeavour? If there are no guarantees and nothing lasts forever...

    A spoonful of Wallaby stew

    The Wallabies are battered, bruised and winless – not a great combination. With no wins from three attempts the Wallabies face the very real prospect of not winning a single game in this year’s Tri-Nations as they confront an uncompromising South Africa over the next two weeks and then travel to Wellington...
