    Wallabies Tri-Nations Team vs Springboks 1st Test Perth

    Here’s the team for Australia vs South Africa in Perth on Saturday. Lock combo of Horwill and Sharpe is still on as Vickerman’s ankle’s not a 100%, thereby delaying the big choice for the selectors. Palu and Tuqiri return from injury in time for this big game and Smith regains the starting...

    Score & random thoughts from the All Black vs Springbok 2nd test

    New Zealand 28 – South Africa 30 Ali Williams is as soft as his name “Keeping the scoreboard ticking over” is a novelty for the Wallabies, the day job for Carter. A try off the back of a 5 metre scrum should be indefensible under the ELVs Ricky Januarie must be a...
