I think this deserves its own thread, branching off from the Olympics discussion.
It's clear that our men's 7s program needs a new approach. Despite a lot of effort, we continue to be a middling 7s team. We might pop up and win a tournament every few years, but we will never be a major power...
So this week on the podcast we went back and discussed the first game of the 2000 Bledisloe, aka 'The Greatest Game of All Time'.
I thought we could all use a distraction from the world and this serves that purpose quite nicely.
Alongside the podcast (which can be found here) I thought a...
Another Friday, another thread.
This one is far more subjective. Name a XV of your favourite Wallabies. Don't have to be the best players, just the ones you liked the most.
I'll go first.
1. Benn Robinson
2. Jeremy Paul
3. Al Baxter
4. Nathan Sharpe
5. John Eales
6. Scott Fardy
It's Friday and I'm bored. We're almost at the end of the 2010s, so let's pick a team of the decade.
Have to have played a test since 2010 (obviously)
Players are picked on the basis of peak form, not longevity
Players must be picked in the position where they displayed that peak...
Good people of G&GR,
I'm moving house, and seriously considering ditching the Foxtel for a cheaper option.
I'm currently on the sport HD package, which sets me back roughly $70 a month.
Does anyone have any experience with Foxtel Now? I like the cheaper price tag but I worry about...
Overseas players now able to be picked for the Wallabies provided they have 60 caps or 7 years service.
Also overseas players who commit to coming back to Super Rugby can play for the Wallabies the year before they return.
Fuuuuuck!!! Let the selection games begin!
We (Kings Old Boys, 3rd div subbies) are looking at our 2014 pre-season, and wondering what events are on offer in February and March.
We currently go to Orange for a 10s tournament, but are looking at branching out to other events. What tournaments are the best?
Obviously the quality of...
Have been thinking about this a bit lately, and am starting to construct my own. Here is what I have so far- sorry about the format, I've copied it from my excel file 'Bucket list.xls':
Kick a drop goal
Learn to play guitar
Climb a mountain
Have a boxing match...
Thought I would start a discussion on this as there are a few interesting selection decisions to make.
Obviously you would think our long-term backrow would be something like Mowen/Pocock/Higgers. But as two of those players are injured (along with Palu as well) it means there are spots up for...
Seemingly confirmed now.
One of the most universally applauded appointments in recent memory.
Surely this will bring in 100 years of Wallaby dominance, a golden age which will never end.......
Or at least a 70% win ratio.
The test is just a few days away, it's time to get psyched up.
I've written an article on the front page outlining the reasons we will BELT the Lions on Saturday.
This is not a thread for logical, level-headed analysis. It's not a place for negativity or constructive criticism. I just want...
Do you love rugby?
Do you want to see the first Lions test from prime seats? For free?
Do you love Subbies rugby, and love supporting grassroots footy?
Well I have a deal for you.
King's Old Boys' Rugby club is running a raffle with a mouth-watering prize. This is an important...
Adam Scott's Masters win this morning has sparked a bit of debate around what is Australia's greatest sporting achievement.
The three accepted nominees seem to be Cadel at the TdF, Australia II at the America's Cup and Scott at the Masters.
I would also throw in Cathy Freeman at the 2000...
ASADA have released quite a damning report today into drugs in sport. It seems it crosses all codes, so I decided to have a look at the report (which can be found here). Here is a paragraph that caught my eye:
The rest of the report is fairly vague in terms of naming names/sports, but I think...
