    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....

    Courageous Force take it to the Bulls

    Bulls 28 Western Force 15 The ‘glass half full’ version says that the Western Force showed heart and courage last night in the face of adversity and gave the top of the table Bulls a real fright. However, reality bites in that it was the Force’s 6th loss in a row in...

    Western Force v Bulls: Dead Man Walking

    By announcing his departure from coaching the Western Force ‘at the end of the 2011 season’ John Mitchell is effectively a dead man walking. I wonder where he’ll celebrate New Years’ Eve this year? You can bet your bottom dollar it won’t be at the Western Force. If you think otherwise you’re...

    Chiefs v Force Preview: Not Enough Indians

    It’s not only the Western Force who have been unlucky in love recently but the Chiefs are without a swag of quality players for this weekend’s clash in Swan Laager. In good news for the Force Mark Bartholomeusz, Ryan Cross and Nick Cummins return to the starting XV and recent four-game emergency...

    Born Free (to play wherever).

    With the Melbourne Rebels now in the player market place, not too long after the WA Force entered, a subset issue is now a subject of hot discussion.  Who can lay claim to the player.  It is a common cry out of NSWRU and the Sydney club land that they created the...

    Force pinning hopes on ‘Little General’

    The question on everyone’s lips is how much will Matt Giteau’s departure hurt the Western Force this season? Let’s face it, in the three seasons he was there it was essentially ‘all about Gits’. He was their million dollar man, possessed oodles of star quality and was worth every cent. Commanding the...

    Force Have Real Firepower in 2010

    If ever there was a time for the Western Force to fulfill their real potential it’s now. They’ve essentially been a journeyman outfit since entering the Super 14 competition in 2006. I don’t mean that in a negative way because they’ve achieved more in the last four years than many of the...

    All Quiet on the Western Front

    The Emirates Western Force have been quietly going about their business without too much fuss, kicking a few goals on the way. Unlike some other franchises, they’re relatively cashed up and have recruited wisely over the summer. They may surprise a few people next year. Apart from their Wallaby players who have...

    Rocky’s sterling effort

    Rocky Elsom has been named Wallaby captain for the upcoming Northern Hemisphere tour beginning later this month. He has taken over from Stirling Mortlock who was also named in the side. Berrick Barnes is the Vice- Captain. This will no doubt increase speculation that Mortlock’s Wallaby career may be coming to a...

    Rookies aplenty in Wallaby Training Squad

    Robbie Deans, and his selectors, have named a number of new faces in the 43 man Wallaby training squad in preparation for the Grand Slam tour later this year.  Perhaps the most notable rookie is scrumhalf Richard Kingi of the Queensland Reds who only last week signed an Academy contract with the...

    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...
