    Wallabies v Springboks - Adelaide Oval, Sat 27th August, 2022

    Every year Hodge plays like shit for the Rebels, and somehow scrapes into the Wallaby squad due to injuries to other players. And then he arses his way into the team (again due to injuries) and is so bloody solid wherever he's put. It's remarkable. You make a few good points KOB, there is a...

    Wallabies 2022 (towards 2023)

    Really? I read a lot of rugby content but this is the first I've ever heard about it. Do you have anything you can direct me for further info?

    Wallabies 2022 (towards 2023)

    This is the comment I agree most with. Rennie is fine. I don't think he's a mastermind but I also think he's performing adequately with the cattle at his disposal. This team get themselves into games, they are tactically sound, have plenty of ticker, don't get blown out. It's just that we...

    And adapting to the professional game a lot faster than every other nation.

    Wallabies 2022 (towards 2023)

    I agree but for me the obvious moment was when Penny Wong came on for Jock Campbell in the 68th minute.

    Australia v England: Match II @ Suncorp 7.55pm AEST, 09/07

    Yet another example of the gross anti-NSW bias that pervades this site.

    And how are new members supposed to weigh in on our frequent discussions about Jason Jones-Hughes and Sam Scott-Young?

    TPN (Tatafu Polota-Nau)? AAC (Adam Ashley-Cooper)? AWH (Adam Wallace-Harrison)? SNK (Sam Norton-Knight)?

    Side note - I've been away from the forum for a bit, what's with the autocorrect on JOC (James O'Connor)? Is there something I missed?

    Australia v England Test 1 Sat. July 2 @1955

    There it is, my favourite chestnut. You can set your watch to it, after the first game of the season, regardless of result....... The ABs would have beaten us by 50! Well done Phil, you win this year's award. Can't wait to do it all again at the same time next year. And the year after that...

    Australia v England Test 1 Sat. July 2 @1955

    I'd be surprised if we lost both games by 30. I feel unusually comfortable with our team at the moment. It's settled. Good mix of youth and experience. Depth in key spots. We might not sweep all before us but maybe our floor is higher than it used to be? Our defence is solid, we can hang in...

    Wallabies 2022 (towards 2023)

    The Link vs Beale thing is a hard hypothetical, mainly because we still don't know what was really happening behind the scenes. Which is funny these days when dirty laundry is aired minutes after a coach/player leaving the room. Was the Beale thing indicative of broader problems in the dressing...

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    Not sure our bid 'hangs in the balance' considering we are pretty much running unopposed. Sure there are a few things that still need to fall into place, but with an election campaign just around the corner I'd say this is all just a sly attempt by Rugby Australia to pressure the feds and Labor into making...

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    I'll put good money on: QF: Suncorp x2 (including Wallaby QF), SFS, Perth SF: Homebush, MCG Final: Homebush NSW Government will stump up the most cash and thus be given the games.
