    Western Force v Bulls: Dead Man Walking

    By announcing his departure from coaching the Western Force ‘at the end of the 2011 season’ John Mitchell is effectively a dead man walking. I wonder where he’ll celebrate New Years’ Eve this year? You can bet your bottom dollar it won’t be at the Western Force. If you think otherwise you’re...

    Video & Stats: Wallaby scrum vs the world

    As you can see in our 2009 highlights package, we’re pretty frikken proud of our Wallaby scrum. Minus a few dodgy ref calls earlier in the season, they’ve taken apart nigh on all-comers, blooding a brand new tight head prop along the way. But how can we quantify how well they’re doing?...

    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...

    Video: Robbie’s back row experiment

    I believe Australia’s first choice back row is the most classically ‘balanced’  in world rugby. You have the ultimate scavenging of Smith, defence, line-out and pace of Rocky mixed in with the unstoppable force that is Palu. On top of this, at least two of these players – Smith and Elsom –...

    Richard Graham speaks to G&GR

    Richard Graham, the newly appointed Wallaby skills coach, is looking forward to coming home to be part of the Wallabies set-up, not only because he’ll get to live close to Sydney’s great beaches, but more particularly working with Robbie Deans. Speaking to G&GR from his coaching den at English Premiership club, Saracens,...

    The tip off – Eddie’s next job

    Eddie Jones has become the Where’s Wally of rugby over the last few years; some might offer the Scarlet Pimpernel, for others he may well be the Quasimodo, all crazy, sitting in a bell tower making heaps of noise getting in trouble with authorities. Whatever Eddie is, one thing he isn’t is...

  • Wallaby history and Eddie Jones

    Eddie Jones has made history by talking sense twice in the last seven days. First in the Times, giving his match preview and picking the back row to be an edge for us. The second, a great article pointed out by Bobas in the Independent, goes through in depth how Australia has...

    Re-living the glory

    Got a question today from Westy (another astute rugby officianado / follower of the blog) that I thought a few guys might be able to help him out with: hey, was wondering if you had any recommended games to hunt down from the Wallabies 2003 to 2006 period. I have it written...

  • The Sharpe-est tool in the box?

    A year ago at the RWC the Wallaby locking pair of Daniel Vickerman and Nathan Sharpe were probably only marginally second to Matfield and Botha as the kings of the line-out. 12 months on, and how things have changed. Vicks is gone – if it wasn’t for Cambridge it would probably be...
