    2012 Australia vs New Zealand - 20 Oct

    Bad luck for one lad and I suppose good fortune for the other - a test cap

    2012 IRB Sevens - Gold Coast 7's - 13/14 October

    Yep understand that some Wallabies would put their hand up to play in Olympics - cannot blame them at all - but I don't know if they would sacrifice $300- $1m to do so - there is no guarantee of a gold medal here, just the opportunity of having a crack at one. Reckon they would be pissed off if...

    End of Year Tour 2012

    Reckon Palu will get a brief and possibly Mitchell now that Ioane is out. Kepu woould be too underdone. Hear a whisper that Benny A. might be unavailable with a crook neck. Hope not as he has played reasonably well this year

    Reds 2013

    re-signings should not be announced UNTIL the ARU top up has been confirmed. If Genia is serious about Japan - call his bluff and let him go. Would free up a lot of $$$$ for the young fellas.

    2012 IRB Sevens - Gold Coast 7's - 13/14 October

    If Sevens were that great Skilled Park would have been full from locals, interstate species and overseas enthusiasts. It only holds about 26,000 (I think) It wasn't anywhere near full - fact. Believe it or not I would have attended if not interstate. I think the ARU was formed prior to Sevens...

    2012 IRB Sevens - Gold Coast 7's - 13/14 October

    The ARU is there essentially for the Wallabies , whether they first or 15th Sevens is a separate and different game - there may be able to be some cross pollination some people seem to think sevens will be the saviour of rugby - IMO the numbers at the Gold Coast were poor

    2012 IRB Sevens - Gold Coast 7's - 13/14 October

    australia is just shit at this sport. IMO cut 'em loose from funding from ARU and pretending to be a part of real rugby - if they are good enough stand on their own.

    Waratahs 2013

    looks pretty fair squad. Just need the boys to muscle up and results will surely follow

    Did Tapuai butcher a try?

    Agree but if he fucks it up and should have passed he deverves to be hammered - it is not the under 7's.

    Hooper stats looking good

    WJ - there were plenty of blokes that played for the Tahs (and fairly poorly) who shouldn't have been selected for OZ

    End of Year Tour 2012

    I reckon for the tour, they should pick a young guy to be mentored into captaincy over the next 3 / 4 years. Really don't believe Poey is the answer at all - FFS his shit decision lost us the Scottish Test - and don't like Genia in that role (think he blames everyone else for everything...

    Reds 2013

    The Reds (and Tahs) produce quality youngsters year in and year out. Some years are better than others. To me the secret in bring boys to men is nurturing them on the journey. That means that most should come thru the ranks of Colts and Premier grade to give them plenty of tough rugby and make...
