    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...

    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...

    Stirling, Japan is your best bet

    You don’t like saying it of a champion but Father Time has finally caught up with Stirling Mortlock. Like George Gregan, who stayed too long at this level, he just ain’t the player he used to be. He’s lost some pace, is starting to fall off tackles and doesn’t have that dynamism...

    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...

    Trials: Trick or Treat?

    It only seems like yesterday that we were wiping the sleep from our eyes, cranking up the laptops and watching the G&GR live blog from Kingsholme as the Dirties took on Glos? And isn’t it still summer? Didn’t Punter and the boys clean up the Pakis earlier this week? Well bugger me, its footy...

    The Super 14 trial match and between the NSW Waratahs and the Queensland Reds sees the Round 1 opponents going head to head in the far northern NSW town of Lismore. As is the custom with these trial matches, the format is open to the interpretation of the respective coaches, but should...

    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...

    IRB u/20 World Cup: Aust 86 Canada 0

    UPDATE: You can see some pretty strange highlights of the game here As expected Australia has completely done a number on Canada winning by a huge margin with everyone scoring plenty of meat-pies. Richard Kingi and Kurtley crossed for 4 each in a game where the Aussies lead by 31-0 at halftime...
