    Say G’Day to Chook

    Hi, i’m an interwebby denizen named Chook who has nothing better to do than comment randomly on the sport of rugby. I should rephrase that to say that there is probably a whole range of things that I SHOULD be doing but I’m on here talking to you instead. Does that make...

    Wallabies Tri-Nations Squad 2008 Announced

    Below is the Australia Tri-Nations squad for the 2008 Tri-Nations. A few comments on the changes from the last few weeks: INTimana Tahu - Has been impossible not to notice for Australia and brings a real different option to Barnes at 12, where I hope they aim him and his ball skillsDrew...

  • Australia A vs Japan Pacific Nations Cup Score

    I haven’t seen the game yet, but here’s a write up. From what I heard Tahu looked pretty good at 12. AUSTRALIA A fought off a second-half rally by Asian champions Japan to post a 42-21 win with six tries in their opening game of the Pacific Nations Cup. The second-tier Australia...

  • Australia A 2008 squad & fixtures

    Some good names here, and there would be more if it weren’t for the U20 RWC happening this month in Wales. There isn’t an obvious shape to the team though, and it’ll be very interesting to see that back line shape up though, especially without a recognised 10 from the S14 this...

  • Australian Under 20 Squad looking mighty fine

    I’ll admit that I don’t usually pay too much attention to things like the IRB Junior World Championships, but this one’s got me interested. Perhaps it’s the stretch of the talent pool in Australia the past few seasons, but we’ve ended up with a 26 man squad that has 10 Super 14...

  • Barbarians vs South Africa: result, score, review

    Classy Barbars 22World Chump B team 5 So many times an all star Barbarian team has disappointed through poor defence and lateral attack, but not today. Almost to a man the Barbars played their hearts out and showed this Springbok team to be out of ideas. The first half was a cracker,...

  • World cup first 15

    Here’s Green and Gold Rugby’s Rugby World Cup 2007 select 15. It’s based solely on performance at the cup (that I saw anyway) and I’ve chosen each man purely in his position and not in any combos. You’ll notice for example that it’s missing an out and out goal kicker (nothing new...

  • 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...

  • South Africa vs England; World Cup Final Preview

    SEE FINAL RESULT AND REVIEW HERE Let’s start with who I want to win. I can’t declare any love of the Boks. But when it comes to this Saturday, as an Australian living in England through the last World Cup and Ashes glitch, under no circumstances do I want the Poms win....

  • Wales vs Fiji score, review, stats

    Fiji 38Wales 34 There’s been a lot of wanging on about this being the best game of the world cup so far. I guess for a sevens style of free-flowing fluctuating game yes. But what this game really nailed once and for all is how naive Wales has become, trying to out-fiji...

  • Wallabies vs Fiji RWC’07 player ratings

    To be honest, Saturday’s was the kind of scrappy effort that left me uninspired when it comes to writing player ratings. So instead, I’ve shamelessly ripped off the anonymous ones syndicated by AAP and stuck on my own thoughts in green. Feel free to take a shot or defend them if they’re...

    Australia vs Fiji RWC ’07; score, review, stats

    Wallabies 55 Fiji (B) 12 At no stage today did the Wallabies get into top gear, in fact there were plenty of periods of play where the game just turned scrappy. Nevertheless, the pleasing aspect to take out of this game was that Australia still managed to run in 7 tries, whereas...

    Australia vs Fiji RWC team & preview

    At the bottom is the Wallaby team selected to play Fiji this Sunday 23rd September in Montpellier, 22:30pm AEST. The word is that Fiji, as per the fashion among the ‘minnows’ in this world cup is selecting a second string side, so we should expect a good run out for our guys....

    Here’s a great weekend round-up from Sportsfreak plus a few comments in green. I thought Ruggerblogger also did a good job, but that’s enough plugs for New Zealanders.

  • Get ready boys; she’s here – by Sportsfreak

    So the tart is back in town. One of the main topics swamping newspapers, internet forums and talkback radio for the last 3 years and 11 months is that the World Cup is ruining the game of rugby. Even Grant Fox, who tends to view rugby as the best run sport ever,...
