    New Zealand vs Australia 2nd Bledisloe 2008 Score & Review

    All Blacks 39 – Wallabies 10Australia’s Tri-Nation hopes and confidence that had been building under Aussie Robbie took a sizeable dent on Saturday night in Auckland, with the Wallabies being on the receiving end of almost exactly what they dished out to the All Blacks just seven days earlier in Sydney. The...

    Wallabies vs All Blacks second Tri-Nations test preview

    Here it is – a speed preview. I reckon Australia can do it. The laws of averages and stats say that’s foolish, but fµck it. I can’t remember the last time the Aussie team had so much confidence and so much going for it. Yep, it’s early days and this is a...

    Teams for 2nd Bledisloe Test in Auckland

    Both the Wallaby and All Black squads have been announced for the next Tri-Nations at Eden Park. For the Wallabies their captain and kiwi destroyer Mortlock is back. Cross drops to the bench and Tahu gets across the ditch as the 23rd man (I guess this gives an idea on Aussie Robbie’s...

    Wallabies vs All Blacks first Tri-Nations test review

    I’ve watched this game twice now, and I’m still having troubles finding the words to describe it, or rather Australia’s role in the match.

    Wallabies team for first Trinations test against All Blacks

    The cheap shot from that cµnt Bakkies Botha on stirling Mortlock (how did this not get cited?) means Australia goes into the first Bledisloe test against New Zealand in Sydney without their captain and AB’s bogeyman. Ryan Cross has been impressive all year, but there’s a good reason why the Kiwis call...

  • Australia A vs New Zealand Maori Video Highlights

    Well, I’m pretty pissed off about this. While I haven’t seen the whole game (just these highlights) it seems to me we more than had the personnel to win this one, just not the composure, which the opposition certainly did have. I guess we at least ran this one close which we...
