    Wallabies team for first Trinations test against All Blacks

    The cheap shot from that cµnt Bakkies Botha on stirling Mortlock (how did this not get cited?) means Australia goes into the first Bledisloe test against New Zealand in Sydney without their captain and AB’s bogeyman. Ryan Cross has been impressive all year, but there’s a good reason why the Kiwis call...

    Wallabies Tri-Nations Squad 2008 Announced

    Below is the Australia Tri-Nations squad for the 2008 Tri-Nations. A few comments on the changes from the last few weeks: INTimana Tahu - Has been impossible not to notice for Australia and brings a real different option to Barnes at 12, where I hope they aim him and his ball skillsDrew...

    Deans means business (plus teams for Wallabies vs France)

    Good news today from the Wallaby camp that Aussie Robbie hasn’t got sucked into a “just go out and play what you feel” love-in. Not that he needs it, but Dingo Deans gets the thumbs up for calling the team on their 60 minutes of crap last week and delivered the message...

    2008 Wallabies Squad announced

    The 30 man train on squad for the Wallabies 2008 (list below) was announced by Aussie Robbie Deans earlier today. Apparently he had no hand in selection (due to his NZ contract still being in place), but having taken note of our Poll, there aren’t that many contentious decisions that weren’t forced...

  • Australia A 2008 squad & fixtures

    Some good names here, and there would be more if it weren’t for the U20 RWC happening this month in Wales. There isn’t an obvious shape to the team though, and it’ll be very interesting to see that back line shape up though, especially without a recognised 10 from the S14 this...

  • Australian Under 20 Squad looking mighty fine

    I’ll admit that I don’t usually pay too much attention to things like the IRB Junior World Championships, but this one’s got me interested. Perhaps it’s the stretch of the talent pool in Australia the past few seasons, but we’ve ended up with a 26 man squad that has 10 Super 14...

    Australia vs Fiji RWC team & preview

    At the bottom is the Wallaby team selected to play Fiji this Sunday 23rd September in Montpellier, 22:30pm AEST. The word is that Fiji, as per the fashion among the ‘minnows’ in this world cup is selecting a second string side, so we should expect a good run out for our guys....

    Australia vs Wales – teams and preview

    According to reports, today we discovered the Wallaby team that will take part in the first really competitive match of their world cup, against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday. There are a few well publicised changes through injuries, and then a few on the bench. Shepherdson’s back at the expense of ‘Big’...

    Warm up’s over – who’s where?

    Where do the Rugby World Cup contenders stand with all the warm up games out of the way? You’d have to say that the faces with smiles on them will have a beret above and garlic underneath. The French have dispatched all comers, at home or away, and while doing so still...

  • England World Cup 2007 Squad Announced

    Today the poms – under coach Brian Ashton – announced their 30 man squad to go to France. As these guys could well be more than just a big banana skin in the Wallabies’ path at quarter-final time, it’s worth having a squiz at who we could be up against. The forwards...

The answer, especially pleasing from an Australian viewpoint, is that...

    Rugby World Cup 2007: Wallabies squad announced

    The Australian squad to go to France was announced last night. While there weren’t too many howls about players left out, there aren’t many slaps on the back for any visionary selections either. In the backs, Huxley (lucky idiot) and Berrick Barnes made it in.While Barnes hasn’t had a great year for...

    This weekend effectively sees the grand final of the 2007 tri-nations, with the Wallabies taking on the All Blacks in Auckland. The twists and turns of this year’s competition means the default supposition of only a month ago – that the ABs should stroll this one – is no longer a foregone...
