    Wallaby Tri-Nations Player Ratings

    Its post-mortem season, so I have decided to cast my (dubious) eye over the Wallaby players. Some stepped up to the plate, others fell away without troubling the scorers. I haven’t used any statistics (except for the G&GR ratings received for each game, which you see in brackets after the review in...

    Wallabies V Springboks 3: A Corner Turned?

    As the Mandela Challenge Plate is the last cup still available to the Wallabies before the end of the Tri-Nations and the start of the Spring Tour, it was all there. The series on the line standing at 1 game a piece. Of added importance to the Men of Gold is Drewster...

    Player Ratings – Bledisloe 2

    When I sat down to write these, I made a conscious decision to approach them more positively than Lance Free did last week. As the game wore on, that proved very difficult. All in all in was another wallaby performance that was well below were it should be.

    Bledisloe 1 First Thoughts

    The surface, the cheating, the running, the lack of kicking was all we could talk about in the lead up to this match. Of course the fact the good guys hadn’t beaten the blacks for 7 games in a row was brought up a couple of times, but after the kick off,...

    Wallabies v All Blacks Preview: Champs or Chumps?

    You can build all you like but there comes a time when you have to stand and deliver. Now is that time. The Wallabies did deliver in Brisbane against a misfiring Springbok side who had been twice beaten up by the All Blacks in the previous few weeks. There’s no doubt that...

    Statistics: All Blacks v Springboks

    It was obvious to anyone watching the first game of the Tri Nations last weekend that the All Blacks went in with a deliberate policy of keeping the ball in play to minimise the impact of the Springbok lineout and tire the big South African forwards. Whilst the number of times in possession...
