    Hallelujah!

    Hallelujah and not just for the win but the Wallabies back line ran a first phase move during the game for only the second time in 2010!

    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...

  • Who’s the most valuable Wallaby?

    Throughout last week we ran a poll asking “Who can the Wallabies LEAST afford to lose?”. The results (from 86 discerning rugby officianados) and how they unfolded over the week, were pretty interesting. At the time, it wasn’t a clear cut exercise. A flux of injuries and variable performances meant that all...
