    And The Other Autumn Internationals '22

    Thought we could do with a thread for the rest of the international matches apart from the All Blacks & Wallabies. Ireland v South Africa could be the game of the round. But I'm actually picking Italy v Samoa. The Samoan XV has some big (nay, massive) guns in what seems to be their full...

    Wallabies v Springboks II, Allianz Stadium 7:35pm 03/09/22

    Time to get this ball rolling, are Springboks going to be so confident as to naming their team on Monday afternoon last week? I'd be impressed if they did. You'd imagine Duane will be benched. They are flush for 8s, no need to keep a man past it. Is it Elton after Pollard? Not sure who I'd want...

    Argentina v Australia II @ 5.10am 14/08

    Minimal changes, keep supersub Hodge on the bench, Lolesio to leapfrog him straight into the team as McReight did Samu. Arnold to start, Philip to bench, Frost out. 1 Slipper (C) 2 Fainga'a 3 Ala'alatoa 4 Swain 5 Arnold 6 Holloway 7 McReight 8 Valetini 9 White 10 Lolesio 11 Koroibete 12 Paisami...

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

    Alrighty, 5 nights to go. You don't dispatch the soap dodgers with a man down for 50 minutes and go doing unforced changes. Hopefully the English freak out and do wholesale changes. 1. Bell 2. Porecki 3. Tupou 4. Philip 5. Neville 6. Leota 7. Hooper 8. Valetini 9. White 10. Cooper 11. Koroibete...

    Brumbies v Hurricanes, 2pm, 01/05

    Didn't expect to see Banks back so soon. Good for Brumbies & Wallabies. Really strong team, Hurricanes $1.60 favourites unfairly IMO.

    Rebels v Drua @ AAMI Park 25/03 7.45pm

    Game of the round here. Grudge match. Two heavy weights going at it, nothing held back. Kong v Godzilla. Would be lovely to have Pone or Leota back but I doubt it. Probably the last match the Rebels have a not insignificant chance to win?

    Brumbies v Drua @ GIO Stadium 2.35pm AEDT 26/02

    Fantasy Rugby Draft 2022

    I'm keen to get a league going for Super Rugby. @RugbyReg, I noticed you started previous years' leagues, happy for you to do it or can set up if you're not interested.

    England v Australia - Twickenham, 14 Nov, 4:30am AEDT

    I presume Petaia & Tupou will miss out. Really hoping Ala'alatoa is fine. Small squad makes replacements easy. Keep the same team, Robertson on the bench for Tupou, Perese starts on the wing and Daugunu comes onto the bench. Pray for no more injuries. edit: whoops sorry admins, I posted this in...

    Northern Hemisphere 2021-22

    With Stan acquiring the UK Premiership (and already having the United Rugby Championship, FKA Pro 14), good time to discuss NH rugby and Aussie players over there. Exeter look to be the team to beat again this year after slipping up in the GF to a rather fortunate Harlequins. Toulouse with...

    Super Rugby RD 8: Rebels v Force

    Shaping up to be an annual grudge match, certainly wasn't lacking in intensity in the first game in Perth. Probably the game I get most anxious about, Rebels can't claim underdog status here. Rebels could look quite different here with Orr, Naisarani, Wilkin and Magnay training. Imagine the XV...

    Australia v Argentina - 21 November, Newcastle

    Well this match just got a whole lot spicier. Looking forward to the scrum battle, Argies battered the All Blacks there. Keep the same team as Suncorp, maybe JO'C in at 10 if fit. Wright deserves to stay as does Banks. Probably promote Hanigan to starting 6 with Naisarani on the bench...

    Super Rugby AU Round 6 Rebels v Brumbies, 7.05pm Leichhardt Oval, Friday 7th August

    After a very shaky win over the Force, Rebels are not looking good for their 'home' clash against the Brumbies. Brumbies are favourites and deservedly. I will continue enjoying being an honorary NSWelshman (apologies to my Vic brethren, solidarity) and waltz down to Leichhardt Oval and...

    L.A. 7s

    Australia have come away from day 1 with three very good wins. Two big scores against Scotland & Samoa, then an impressive victory against the USA on their home turf, 17-7. Playing Ireland tomorrow in the quarters.

    Northern Hemisphere Rugby 2020

    Thought we needed a thread for all NH rugby for the just started season. Whether it be Top 14, Premiership or the Pro 14. Especially with a surely record number of SH players up there. Top 14 is 9 rounds in and is in a state of disarray as is Premiership rugby after four rounds (every team...
