    Winter Tours Tipping – Week 1

    A nice soft start to this short tipping comp, with only two games to worry about. The only way to get yourself into an early lead with this one, was margins. Cheezel did the job with the Wallabies vs Fiji, picking the 46 point margin, and #1 Tah cleaned up the Saffa...

    When test matches go wrong – review of Australia vs South Africa TriNations in Johannesburg

    When you get hammered by a record 45 points, the summary of how you played is pretty easy: shit-house. So what I’m going to do here are two things – put together the main causes of the arse pounding (at 53-8 there were plenty) and out of that pull what the Wallabies...

    South Africa vs Australia Tri-Nations teams for Johannesburg

    Rocky beats bum wrap! The Springbok and Wallabies teams for Saturday’s game have been announced and the good news is that Rocky Elsom has cleared his name of the citing nonsense (well, almost).

    Springboks vs Wallabies Tri-Nations Durban Video Highlights

    You might be able to guess the nationality of the guys who do these highlights by the lack of build up to Robinson’s try, no replay of Mortlock’s fantastic effort and absence of Van Der Linde’s head butt, but nevertheless its another good effort from Rugbydump. On re-watching these highlights, I’m also...

    Wallabies vs Springboks: Tri-Nations first test score & review

    Australia 16 – South Africa 9I’m tempted to say for the review, read the preview. The core of this story was as predicted – a tough battle that was just one too far for the Springboks. But it was detail around margins that was most interesting from a Wallaby perspective. In such...
