    Winter Tours Tipping Comp – Final Week

    Congratulations go to Jimbo, winner of the Winter tours tipping comp. Jimbo appeared to take the view that a slow, well timed rise to the summit was the way to do it (shadowing the Wallabies???), moving from 34th after the first round, he hit his straps going to 6th, then 3rd before...

    Wallabies Vs England Test 2 – First Thoughts

    All the talk in the lead up to this test was about whether the Wallabies front row have learnt anything and parity, or better, would be achieved or would we be in for more of the same? Well, the stage was set, 5 minutes in and we have the first scrum set....

    Winter Tours Tipping Comp – Week 2

    The comp has opened up a little with 4 games to tip last week. Drewboy had a corker, picking all 4 results and tipping the margin for the Wallabies v England game as well as getting margin points in the Argentina v Scotland game. #1 Tah relinquished the lead by only dropping...

    Video: Scrum Doctor In The House? Part 1

    Is there anyone who can really work out all of the secrets of a scrum?  There probably are a few around, but we don’t profess to have all the answers.  Perhaps collectively we can act as the Wallabies scrum doctor and decipher what went wrong on Saturday and what to do about...

    Winter Tours Tipping – Week 1

    A nice soft start to this short tipping comp, with only two games to worry about. The only way to get yourself into an early lead with this one, was margins. Cheezel did the job with the Wallabies vs Fiji, picking the 46 point margin, and #1 Tah cleaned up the Saffa...

    Wales vs New Zealand, England vs South Africa, scores & reviews

    . Wales 9 – All Blacks 29 Full marks to Wales for doing the best stare down of the Haka (especially this new choreographed production) I’ve seen. They refused to move and made the ABs turn first. Nice. This aggression carried on into the first half where Wales played some great rugby...

  • Wallabies vs England player ratings

    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...
