    S14 stat attack: Aussie players (2010)

    About 12 months ago the esteemed Juan Cote put together a few stats from the 2009 Super 14.  Great idea I reckon. So I stole it.  Now the first Wallaby squad of has been named as of yesterday. As with any team announcement there are always surprise selections and omissions. So this...

    State of unOriginal

    Ok ok. It’s that time of the year when the talk turns to Origin again. Nah, I don’t mean the Slater, Inglis, Lockyer, Hayne, Kimmorley and co. Sure that State of Origin series is on, but it just happens to coincide with the call for a State of Origin in Rugby Union...

    Force v Highlanders Preview: Shepherd’s Pie

    In what has been a prick of a season so far, the Western Force have an opportunity to post a rare brace of wins following last week’s victory over the Stormers. With their international backrow of Pocock, Brown and Hodgson back on deck for the first time since Round 1, combined with...

    2010 Wallabies Are Emerging: The Certainties

    We’re more than halfway through the Super 14 and wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall at Wallaby Selectors Robbie Deans, Jim Williams and David Nucifora’s weekly post-match conferences? Just at the moment, everyone’s talking ‘inside backs’ but there’s plenty of talent from 1 – 22 being showcased. After...

    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...

    Force v Chiefs Review: Once Were Warriors

    You’ve got to feel for the Force. Not a lot of depth and without all their best players these Western warriors have…umm…’gone west’. I think their season is just about over and despite the return of a few Super 14 quality players this week it might have been just that little bit...

    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...

    Force v Hurricanes: Outmanned & Outgunned

    This says it all: unavailable for selection are Andre Pretorius (hamstring, season), David Pocock (finger, 6 weeks), Richard Brown (shoulder, 6 weeks), Cameron Shepherd (thigh, 6 weeks), Nick Cummins (foot, 3-4 weeks), Mark Bartholomeusz (neck, 1-2 weeks), Ryan Cross (shoulder). That’s taken so much experience and talent out of this side that the Force will be huge...

    Mark Bart down for general duties

    The Western Force have named their team for Friday’s match-up with the Brumbies and as flagged earlier in the week, Mark Bartholomeusz is the new black. He was recruited by the Force as a utility to provide backup at fullback and for Andre Pretorius at flyhalf – that he’s now the first choice...

    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...
