    2011 Super Rugby Brumbies Player of the Year

    It was a tough year for the Brumbies. Their tally of four wins is the lowest they’ve had since the 1998 Super 12 season (which was 11 rounds long). There was the turmoil of a sacked coach, a new coach and then another new coach. Then there were numerous injuries, most notably...

    Super Rugby Round 3 Review

    Round 3 of the 2011 Super Rugby season was a tough one for Australian Rugby fans. OK, fine, the Reds won. But it was at the expense of the Brumbies and the game was hardly one to showcase all that is great about rugby. Meanwhile… the Tahs? Smashed. Rebels? Smashed. Force? Smashed....

    G&GR Wallaby Player of the Year: Spring Tour

    The Wallabies began the Spring Tour on somewhat of a high. A win over the Boks in Bloemfontein gave renewed hope, but still… those All Blacks. They were so damn good. Five tough test matches beginning with a fourth Bledisloe, followed by challenges against the Welsh, the Poms, the Italians and finally...

    Wallaby Player Ratings v England (Twickers)

    I wish I was rating the Pommies. I’d find it a hell of a lot easier. A couple of 9s on the wing, another at scrumhalf and a few in the pack. Throw in some 8’s in the midfield and at the back, as well as on the side of the scrum...

    Hong Kong Phooey – bugger all changes to Wallabies

    Robbie Deans has steered clear of any dramatic changes to his Wallaby side to take on the All Blacks in yet another Bledisloe dead rubber this weekend. There are two solitary changes to the team that were run down by the All Blacks in their last encounter.  Drew Mitchell, who missed the Sydney test...

    Wallaby and All Black Test Teams Named

    The big talking point in the Wallaby team named to play the All Blacks this weekend is the move by Matt Giteau back to five eighth. Robbie Deans decided to use him as the playmaker instead of leaving him at inside centre. Giteau replaces the suspended Quade Cooper – whose suspension is...

    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...

    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...
