    Broadcast options for Australian Rugby

    I'd love to see a model as follows... a fully domestic competition of 8 teams x 2 rounds and finals.. circa 18 weeks. Followed by a short Heineken cup style involving the top 16 teams from NZ, Aust, Japan, possibly with other participants like Samoa, Tonga etc with 4 pools, round robin and...

    Wallabies 2022 (towards 2023)

    That side is a fair way off our best.... AAA Porecki / Fainga'a Bell Rodda - With Arnold clearly not match fit either... Neville Hooper Along with Cooper Kerevi Kellaway Banks Perese Paisami These guys were all in the Wallabies squad for the first test with 5 blokes pulled in from the A...

    Wallabies 2022 (towards 2023)

    Tom Hooper is (IMO) a very similar physical profile to Jed Holloway.... and I get the distinct feeling that that is the type DR is looking for in the 6 position. High work rate, big body, lineout presence, can dent the line in attack and hit hard in D. Can also offer a strong bench option...

    Waratahs 2023

    TBH I think Edmed has the size and running game to also play at 12. Triple threats at 10,12 and 15.... all young.... Tahs dynasty on the way!!! ;)

    Waratahs 2023

    I think that on the assumption Beale will only be there for 2023 they could conceivably keep all three after that... 2 starting. one on the bench with the luxury of being able to rotate them or cover for injury... Great outcome for everyone.

    Waratahs 2023

    Really only need a serviceable LH to sit behind Bell and an XXL lock to complete the roster. Would love one of the Brumbies NSW locks to come across.... any of Frost, Neville and Hooper (all NSW born and bred) Bloody warehousing if you ask me............. although we've probably got one too...

    Douglas was announced as one of the Tahs departing this year. Destination unknown.

    Bit hard to be the first at the cleanout all the time when you're making the first tackle, first to chase the kicks, running the ball, running support lines etc. But ok, Pete Samu is better than Hooper if you like.... Who are those idiots that nominate plodders for WR (World Rugby) player of the year anyway?

    Wallabies 2022 (towards 2023)

    I don't think it comes down to what he did, more what he forces the defence to do... if he is a running threat, which Smith is, he forces the defence to factor it into their alignment, no threat, then the defenders concentrate on the next link... Kerevi. Even if you never run, the defence still...

    Wallabies 2022 (towards 2023)

    Lolesio just doesn't constitute the triple threat the wallabies need to create more space in the wider channels. Any defensive line only needs to defend the pass/kick option. Don't get me wrong, I think he's a very good footballer and has played pretty well during this series.. (especially...
