    Preview: Tahs vs Reds Trial

    The Super 14 trial match and between the NSW Waratahs and the Queensland Reds sees the Round 1 opponents going head to head in the far northern NSW town of Lismore. As is the custom with these trial matches, the format is open to the interpretation of the respective coaches, but should...

    So who missed out? The Stats.

    While it is hard to argue with the majority of the Wallaby selections announced today, there are a few players that could feel a bit unlucky. The selection of Matt Hodgson in front of Ben Mowen and Mitchell Chapman was a bit of a surprise as was the inclusion of Quade Cooper...

    Preview & teams: Shorks vs Tahs

    What a crunch match – whoever loses this one is pretty much fucked for the semis, so expect a do or die belting. The wheels have looked distincly wobbly on the Sharks season of late and the destabilisation has continued this week with a number of injuries and suspensions. Everyones fantasy 9...

    S14 stat attack: Aussie players

    We let our stat gimp loose on the teams and he couldn’t stop himself delving into the individual players as well. So here they all are. For the most part they reinforce what you might already suspect, but there are a few surprises…….. Tweet

    Wallaby watch – Second row

    The incumbent(s): Nathan Sharpe (WA): The Force captain surprised many late last year when he put in a series of aggressive and industrious performances on the European tour. Despite a slow start, 2009 has seen him continue this form. His work rate is unquestioned, perhaps it’s just the actual work, and where...

    Tahs vs Force – preview

    A fascinating clash is brewing on Saturday night and already the mind games (or are they brain farts?) have started. What we should have is a classic case of ‘rugby good’ vs ‘rugby evil’, just like the Wallabies vs England. In the ‘good’ corner is the Force. Full of speed and guile...

    Tahs vs Stormers preview & teams

    As the weeks roll on, it becomes increasingly foolish to tip against the Tahs. Love em or hate ‘em, they’re showing a quality missing in the rest of the Aussie sides at the moment, and that’s the ability to win. I sense the tide of opinion may have turned a little, from...

    Another horror show?

    From an Aussie perspective, last weekend’s super 14 was an unmitigated disaster. The Brumbies gave the Lions their 4th ever S14 win and both the Force and Tahs lost at home. Even worse was the error strewn manner in which all three teams gave away their matches. So what about this week?...

    Tahs vs Saders preview

    This week has told you something about the Australian psyche. The Waratahs are literally coming first on the Super 14 ladder. And yet, from the bagging that they, and particularly the fly-half Kurtley Beale has been getting, you’d think they were coming ninth or tenth like the Force or Reds. I’m not...

    Australian Super 14 Team of week 5

    1. Benn Robinson (Tahs) – Has gotten the better of his opposite numbers two weeks in a row and shown that he is the number one, no. 1 in the country. More often than not he was scrumming against two opponents, as George Smith would slide up along side the under pressure...
