    Wobblies woefull in Wellington

    So far this season the Wallabies have let themselves down in just one, sometimes two facets of the game. Tonight, they fucked every single one. The scrum, lineout, breakdown, kicking, discipline, running, passing; all sucked. It was only an average defensive performance that kept them anywhere near the match. The heroics in...

    Springboks v All Blacks in Bloem: the teams

    This game is the first in a heavyweight encounter between South Africa and New Zealand in Bloemfontein.

    Seducing Miss Eden Park: 1st Test Preview

    For a Wallaby supporter this is a vicious tease of a match. Standing defiantly is the wily 23 year old Eden Park minx, and laid out like a string of Bacardi Breezers before her is the key to melting this ice maidens defences. It’s only fitting that the French and Italians –...

    Azzurri win! Well, a moral victory anyway

    New Zealand 27 – Italy 6 The All Blacks struggled to overcome a committed Italian side tonight scoring three tries to none, but it was the manner of the win that will have the AB brains trust a little concerned. The result was never going to be in doubt, just a matter...

    Reds vs Blues preview

    This game represents the master versus the apprentice. Watching the Reds oscillate from famine to feast then back again by playing their particular style of ‘attacking’ rugby, one can’t help but think they are trying to model their game on a team similar to the Blues. What the Reds lack spectacularly is...

    Another horror show?

    From an Aussie perspective, last weekend’s super 14 was an unmitigated disaster. The Brumbies gave the Lions their 4th ever S14 win and both the Force and Tahs lost at home. Even worse was the error strewn manner in which all three teams gave away their matches. So what about this week?...

    This weekend effectively sees the grand final of the 2007 tri-nations, with the Wallabies taking on the All Blacks in Auckland. The twists and turns of this year’s competition means the default supposition of only a month ago – that the ABs should stroll this one – is no longer a foregone...
