    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....

    G&GR Wallaby Player of the Year: Spring Tour

    The Wallabies began the Spring Tour on somewhat of a high. A win over the Boks in Bloemfontein gave renewed hope, but still… those All Blacks. They were so damn good.

    Wallaby Player Ratings v England (Twickers)

    I wish I was rating the Pommies. I’d find it a hell of a lot easier. A couple of 9s on the wing, another at scrumhalf and a few in the pack. Throw in some 8’s in the midfield and at the back, as well as on the side of the scrum...

    Wallaby and All Black Test Teams Named

    The big talking point in the Wallaby team named to play the All Blacks this weekend is the move by Matt Giteau back to five eighth. Robbie Deans decided to use him as the playmaker instead of leaving him at inside centre. Giteau replaces the suspended Quade Cooper – whose suspension is...

    They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome.  If that’s the case then Robbie should be looking over his shoulder for the men in white coats.  In the end, the Aussie selectors have been left with little choice but...
