  • Sanction this

    Last week Moses made some great points about how random the roll out of the ELVs seems to have been. It looks so bad that I can only think its a ruse employed by the usual dinosaurs to try and scupper them. Thanks to those still stuck in the 70’s, the mess...

    Leaguies bleat as Rome burns

    Enjoyed this so much, had to share it. By fitzy AND yea, verily, it was written. In the future the poor will be rich, the weak will be strong, the meek shall inherit the earth and rugby league will scream like stuck pigs as the forces of rugby union, with cheque books...

    Schadenfreude (a.k.a NZRFU review of RWC’07)

    You may be aware that the Kiwis have this week released the review of how the cup didn’t manage to fall into their arms, again. If, like me, you couldn’t be arsed read it, Sportsfreak has provided some highlights of the more hilarious bits. Probably the piece I find most interesting is...

  • About Green and Gold Rugby

    Because I’m in London, I don’t get to wang on about Aussie rugby on a daily basis.Hence the blog. I started G&GR in 2007 during the run up to the Rugby World Cup and well, it stuck. The most important thing’s been the exchange of views on the game they play in...

  • Report from the Shaky Isles

    All together now Article by Sportsfreak Immediately following the World Cup humiliation, everything seemed straight forward. An already disgruntled rugby public due to a non-event of a Super 14 had to put up with an early yet inevitable exit from the World Cup by a team coached who had always said this...

    The world cup & the wallabies; a post-mortem

    Has it been long enough for the depression to recede to a point where we can actually have a look at the world cup and what Australia can take from it, without wincing with pain and changing the subject? The stage we went out of the cup, who it was against and...

  • World cup first 15

    Here’s Green and Gold Rugby’s Rugby World Cup 2007 select 15. It’s based solely on performance at the cup (that I saw anyway) and I’ve chosen each man purely in his position and not in any combos. You’ll notice for example that it’s missing an out and out goal kicker (nothing new...

  • France vs Argentina; 3rd place review and scores

    French dicked Argentina 34 France 10For those of us who thought this game would be a damp squibb – wrong. Both sides turned up ready to rumble, as evidenced by the constant niggle and sniping throughout. But what this game made clear to me, more than any other, was what has gone...

  • South Africa vs England; World Cup Final Preview

    SEE FINAL RESULT AND REVIEW HERE Let’s start with who I want to win. I can’t declare any love of the Boks. But when it comes to this Saturday, as an Australian living in England through the last World Cup and Ashes glitch, under no circumstances do I want the Poms win....

  • South Africa vs Argentina: score & review

    Boks 37 Pumas 13If you look at the scorelines of the last couple of South Africa wins, you figure they’ve had it easy. But that’s not the case. For large parts of this game the Pumas controlled the ball (49% possession and 54% territory) and built some great momentum, to then throw...

    Frogs 9Poms 14 Was it ugly? Definitely.Does that matter? No. Last night we had another reminder in the laws of world cup rugby. Laws that it seems are impossible to remember for 4 years. Last weeks law: games are won and lost up front. This weeks law: semis and finals are ugly....
