  • 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...

  • France vs Argentina; 3rd place review and scores

    French dicked Argentina 34 France 10For those of us who thought this game would be a damp squibb – wrong. Both sides turned up ready to rumble, as evidenced by the constant niggle and sniping throughout. But what this game made clear to me, more than any other, was what has gone...

    Australia vs Japan: Results, review and stats

    Wallabies 91Cherryblossoms 3 As the scoreline suggests, this was your classic World Cup mismatch of the type that Campo has been campaigning against of late. That aside, the Wallabies produced a composed performance, for the most part devoid of the ‘rustiness’ excuse that usually dogs them in world cup pool games, and...

  • Great rugby grounds of the world

    Yet again Nursedude has provided the inspiration for a bit of a ramble: “Of the rugby stadiums that you have been to in OZ and Europe, which ones do you think are the best in terms of sight-lines, and ambiance?” Bloody good question. Here’s my personal ranking – let me know what...

    Enough already! Journos & the Wallaby backline

    Photo from Reuters For the past two weeks the cry from some prominent Australian journalists has been that the Wallabies have “retreated” to an “old guard” back-line combination that has an abysmal away record.
