    Wallabies 2023

    I think that this 'running rugby' idea has actually contributed to the decline of the game in Australia. I remember in the late 2000's, when rugby had a larger public footprint than it does now, there was consistent criticism of Australian teams winning ugly. I am talking 07-08 around the time...

    Wallabies 2023

    I think having uniformity of playing style across teams is dangerous territory. From a spectator point of view, one the great things about rugby is watching teams of contrasting styles compete. watching teams that attack and defend with the same concepts at Super Rugby, Club, Schoolboy level...

    RWC Pool C - Australia v Wales - 5AM 25 Sep AEST

    Shows the quality of bloke that Michael Hooper is to not make it a petty comment about EJ (Eddie Jones)

    RWC Pool C - Australia v Wales - 5AM 25 Sep AEST

    All serious analysis aside, jeez I hope we get over Wales this weekend. I have always thought that the Wallabies are similar to the French in that we can be a bit complacent in games that we should win, even dropping games against Samoa (2011), Italy (2022) and Fiji. I also think that we...

    RWC: Pool C - Wallabies v Georgia, SdF Sunday 10th September 2am

    Probably worth noting that Kellaway is a Randwick lad as well. So it's clearly about the player not the club

    Wallabies 2023

    Its well covered terrain in this thread, but gee the wallabies S&C doesn’t fill me with confidence. The Wallabies socials have posts at the moment of the lads squatting huge weight wearing foamy asics running shoes. Not proper S&C practice at all. Get the boys some lifting shoes for god sake!

    France v Wallabies (RWC Warm-up), 28/8 1.45AM AEST

    Anyone got some advice for watching the game in Singapore? I have committed the cardinal sin of booking a holiday in test season

    Wallabies 2023

    Conditioning programs need to come from researched and proven methods, not random ideas from coaches like running sand dunes. Listening to the Michael Cheika interview on the GBRA podcast, i was surprised about his S&C methods. He mentioned how he would take the boys for a run and kind of...

    Wallabies 2023

    I really question the merit of having a Rennie v Jones discussion. Rennie is gone and we have picked our coach. Looking backwards is not a winning mentality. I also can't see Eddie being the problem. He has a proven record over more than two decades with Brumby, Wallaby, Japanese and English...

    Wallabies v Argentina @ CommBank Stadium 7.45pm Sat 15/07

    International rugby is almost unwatchable. Loosing a test for quade brushing matera’s adams apple. What a great product

    Wallabies 2023

    at least we can watch it! Folau, Piatau, Fekitoa, Vea Fifita, Ben T. Top quality opposition.

    Springboks v Wallabies, Loftus Versfeld, Sun 9th Jul 1.05am AEST

    I rekon both the Australians and BOK are feeling the crowd. Every 50/50 decision going to the boks.

    Im surprised Lachie Lonergan wasn’t named. I dont see much argument for Jordan Ulesese over him. Feel for Harry Wilson too

    Super Rugby QF 2023 Brumbies vs Hurricanes:

    Paul Cully bias against the Australian game is well established. He’s just taking another opportunity to stick a boot in

    How many goals did Larkham kick?

    Crusaders v Brumbies

    Jee it would be nice if the kiwi commentators did a bit of homework on the Brumbies team. ‘Nisbo’ has swapped Charlie Cale and Rory Scott around at least 3 times. Then referred to Moggy as a coach

    Week 2 Brumbies @ Blues
