    Wales vs Wallabies Player Ratings

    By Patrick Here are my thoughts on the Australia (& Wales!) player ratings from the test in Cardiff on Saturday. Probably not what you saw since I am being purely subjective but love to know where we differ! Rating scale at bottom. Tweet

    Australia vs Wales Teams

    Below are the teams for the Wales vs Wallabies match on Saturday in Cardiff. I like the look of the Aussie team because it says to me that Antipodeans is serious about a Euro clean sweep. The tell tale sign being the tight 5, where the experimenting has gone out the window...

    Wallabies vs France Teams

    Here are the teams for Australia vs France this Saturday at Stade de France.Robinson gets a rest with Alexander at loose head and Kepu on the bench. Palu’s back at 8 after his rampage at Twickers and Brown’s injury. Chisholm hits the bench, MMM replaces him and Mumm steps into blindside. A...

    Here are my thoughts on the Australia player ratings from the momentous test at Twickenham on Saturday. Tally with what you saw? Rating scale at bottom. 15 Adam Ashley-Cooper Everything was OK, except for the kicking. Still not a fullback. 4 14 Peter Hynes - Not seeing the gas or sparkle a...

    Score & Review: Australia vs New Zealand Hong Kong

    All Blacks 19 – Wallabies 14 Someone needs to remind the Wallabies that there are two halves in a match of rugby. Yet again they came out playing the better attacking rugby, scoring two tries to nil in the first 40, to then look and play like walking zombies for the rest...

    Wallaby team vs All Blacks in Honkers & preview

    With all the leaking that happened this week in Hong Kong it wasn’t really a surprise when the Australian Bledisoe team sheet hit. A few thoughts on it: Some call it a “get Carter” ploy, but I reckon Mortlock at 12 is more of a necessity. Barnes’ kicking game is going to...

    Wallabies vs All Blacks Final Tri-Nations teams for Brisbane

    With the Australian and New Zealand teams being announced, the Aussie Robbie Deans selection policy seems pretty straight forward so far: stuff up and you go, no risks come big game time. So as per this ethos he’s made 5 changes for the Brisbane Tri-Nations decider this Saturday. Everyone’s favourite scapegoat and...

    South Africa vs Australia Tri-Nations teams for Johannesburg

    Rocky beats bum wrap! The Springbok and Wallabies teams for Saturday’s game have been announced and the good news is that Rocky Elsom has cleared his name of the citing nonsense (well, almost). On a specially convened teleconference, SANZAR judicial representatives from each member country said “You are a penis” to Nick...

    Springboks versus Wallabies Teams & Preview TriNations Durban

    FINALLY they’ve released the much speculated over Australian team list and it’s true to the media briefings over the last few days. The big news is that both Horwill, and especially Elsom, are both in, having survived full on training sessions yesterday. These are two vital cogs when taking on a riled...

    Burgess’ knee, Sharpe gets the arse, Foles rolls

    OK, I’m a little late on the 28 man squad for the South African tour, but hey, everything works a bit slower in rural France. The big upsets are:1 – Luke Burgess is out with a small tear in his miniscus (knee), sustained in training. While Burgo hasn’t yet fully aclimatised to...

    New Zealand vs Australia 2nd Bledisloe 2008 Score & Review

    All Blacks 39 – Wallabies 10Australia’s Tri-Nation hopes and confidence that had been building under Aussie Robbie took a sizeable dent on Saturday night in Auckland, with the Wallabies being on the receiving end of almost exactly what they dished out to the All Blacks just seven days earlier in Sydney. The...

    Teams for 2nd Bledisloe Test in Auckland

    Both the Wallaby and All Black squads have been announced for the next Tri-Nations at Eden Park. For the Wallabies their captain and kiwi destroyer Mortlock is back. Cross drops to the bench and Tahu gets across the ditch as the 23rd man (I guess this gives an idea on Aussie Robbie’s...

    Wallabies vs All Blacks first TriNations test player ratings

    With so many great performances across the park for Australia, this was a tough one. The 6-7-8 and 9-10-12 combos fought evenly for honours in which group swayed the game the most, but what a dilemma to have eh? 15 Adam Ashley-Cooper From nervy and out of place last week, to star...

    Wallabies team for first Trinations test against All Blacks

    The cheap shot from that cµnt Bakkies Botha on stirling Mortlock (how did this not get cited?) means Australia goes into the first Bledisloe test against New Zealand in Sydney without their captain and AB’s bogeyman. Ryan Cross has been impressive all year, but there’s a good reason why the Kiwis call...

    Here are my ratings for the Australia vs South Africa first test. See if it tallies with how you saw it. Scoring system at bottom. 15 Adam Ashley-Cooper I feel sorry for the guy being shoved into this position, but crucial tri-nations games aren’t the place to learn 4 14 Peter Hynes...

    Wallabies vs Springboks: Tri-Nations first test score & review

    Australia 16 – South Africa 9I’m tempted to say for the review, read the preview. The core of this story was as predicted – a tough battle that was just one too far for the Springboks. But it was detail around margins that was most interesting from a Wallaby perspective. In such...
