    2011 Super Rugby Melbourne Rebels Player of the Year

    It was difficult to predict where the new kids on the block, the Melbourne Rebels, would finish in their debut year of Super Rugby. Well, difficult for Rugby Reg who tipped them to finish 10th in his season preview back in January. ‘With better depth, I reckon they’ll sneak past the Force...

    Super Rugby Round 3 Review

    Round 3 of the 2011 Super Rugby season was a tough one for Australian Rugby fans. OK, fine, the Reds won. But it was at the expense of the Brumbies and the game was hardly one to showcase all that is great about rugby. Meanwhile… the Tahs? Smashed. Rebels? Smashed. Force? Smashed....

    The Tron Rebellion: Chiefs v. Rebels Preview

    After making team changes galore following their first game of the season, the Rebels have named the same run-on XV they used against the Brumbies last weekend. Coach Rod Macqueen has rewarded his players, deservedly, for their ability to stick to a game plan devised to provide the team’s first Super win....

    Super Rugby Round Two Review

    Round Two of Super Rugby, 2011-style, saw two more local derbies for the Aussie teams. The first was an emotional last-minute win by the Rebels over the Brumbies, while the second was a clinical takedown of the Reds by the increasingly impressive Waratahs. So, on to the whos, whats and whys of...

    With a Rebel yell they cried- “more, more, more”

    So sang Billy Idol (well…kinda) and so sang the ARU as they announced that the Melbourne Rebels would be the newest addition to the Australian Rugby professional landscape. MORE teams means MORE games and MORE money. More, more, more indeed. While money in the coffers is the driving force behind the ARU’s...

    S14 stat attack: Aussie players

    We let our stat gimp loose on the teams and he couldn’t stop himself delving into the individual players as well. So here they all are. For the most part they reinforce what you might already suspect, but there are a few surprises……..

    Brumbies vs Brutes preview and teams

    So we’re all thinking the Brumbies are destined for the finals now, with the memory of Macka to play for and karma catching up with Botha and Matfield; Bakkies getting 3 weeks, and Victor getting life (another sprog). Add captain Hoiles returning from injury for an extra bonus. And then KAPOW. A...

    Aussie S14 team of week 9

    1. Ben Alexander (Brumbies) – Superb performance with his workrate and willingness to truck the ball-up, just what was needed on a night where the conditions were appalling. 2. Squeeky Moore (Brumbies) – Lead the Brumbies front row which dominated the Stormers pack. Had a pretty solid night with his line-out work...

    Wallaby Team if selected on this weeks form

    15 Mark Gerrard (ACT) – Gerrard must think he has a better chance at socceroo selection this year with some great skills controlling the oval ball. Scored a chip and chase with 4 extra fly-hacks to spark the brumbies back into the game. He then went on to nail a drop goal...

    Video – Tyrone takes on the Sharks

    Juan’s stats post showed George’s younger brother to have by far the highest line break rate at a whopping 17% of all his runs. These few clips from last Saturday’s loss to the Shorks brings those numbers to life. With feet like these, can he really be kept out of the Wallabies...

FULLBACK The incumbent(s): Drew Mitchell (WA) – played the last two tests at fullback last year, taking over from the seemingly out of position Adam Ashley-Cooper.  Has taken over from Cameron Shepherd in the custodian role for the Force. There’s...

    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?...

    Video – Gerrard’s belter vs the S14 Lions

    I finally had a chance to catch up on this game tonight and it completed the trio of Aussie teams doing all the leg work to make stupid mistakes and get hit on the bounce. Has some mastermind created a virus and released it to Australian S14 players? Nevertheless, I thought Mark...

    Australian Super 14 Team of week 5

    1. Benn Robinson (Tahs) – Has gotten the better of his opposite numbers two weeks in a row and shown that he is the number one, no. 1 in the country. More often than not he was scrumming against two opponents, as George Smith would slide up along side the under pressure...
