    The new year is with us and the teams are all probably back into hard work. Time to air our opinions and make predictions about the season to come. Starting with the newest side, the Western Force, they're putting together an impressive roster with the help of Argentinean players and they...

    Super Rugby 2019 Predictions - Aussie Conference

    Less than a week until the first trial matches for 2019. Time to get the crystal balls out again and have a shot at predicting the outcome of the Aussie conference this year. The way I see it panning out for the four teams is : Waratahs : Finished top in 2018 but were the beneficiaries...

    Toby Price

    One of the truly great but largely unknown and unsung Aussie sporting heroes, Toby is the current FIM World Rally Champion, and is about to tackle Dakar 2019 which starts on Sunday. For those who don't know Toby or want to see more of his exploits, I recommend a look at the video of his...

    ACT Brumbies v NSW Waratahs, GIO Stadium 31 March

    Apart from the effect of the extreme temperatures in the Tahs' win over the Rebels last week, it seemed to me that the other major contributing factor to the win was the high ball tactic to Folou's wing. I think he won every contest for the ball in the air and many led to attacking moves and...

    2018 Trial Match Brumbies v Rebels Seiffert Oval Queanbeyan

    For many of us, the 2018 season kicks off on Saturday 3 February with the trial match between the current conference champions, the Brumbies, and the pretenders, the Rebels. The match will herald the new start for the Rebels after significantly strengthening their playing roster with many...

    Bledisloe 2 - Wallabies vs All Blacks, Wellington, 27 August 2016

    My dream overnight: I am Michael Cheika. I am the head coach of the Wallabies’ national rugby union team which has just been trounced by the NZ All Blacks on our home soil. This comes on top of a three test clean sweep by the English against us back in June. I have to do something drastic...

    Brumbies v Crusaders Rd 18 Sat 13 June

    This has the potential to be one of the games of the round. Brumbies trying to finish as high as possible on the ladder, and the Crusaders saying goodbye to a couple of their long serving champion players. Expect lots of passion and emotion to come into play. Unfortunately, for me, I can't...

    Brumbies v Highlanders Friday 24 April GIO Stadium Canberra

    The Highlanders have announced their side for this match. No Smith and Smith and no Fekitoa. Will significantly deplete their backline, but probably only by the amount the Brumbies are depleted also. Will be waiting in anticipation for the front row when the Brumbies team is announced. Won't...

    Dakar Rally 2015

    Hats off to another emerging Aussie sporting star. Toby Price in his debut rally has just won a stage in this awesome event, moving to third overall in the motorbikes section of the race. An unbelievable effort from him. Not only is the Dakar a test of riding and navigation skills, but it tests...

    World Cycling 2015

    Another great year of cycling gets underway tonight with the First stage of the Mitchelton Bay Classic showing on Fox at 11pm. Pity no Simon Gerrans who's out with a broken collar bone. Also this month are the Aust Road Championships, the Tour Down Under and the Cadel Evans One Day (?) race to...

    Brisbane City v Canberra Vikings

    Vikings are playing completely without tactical nous (again). Some tips for the so far underperforming coaching staff: 1. Why play for a penalty in the scrums inside the opposition 22m when penalty kicks are no longer worthwhile. Get the ball out as quickly as possible and at least try to get...

    Time to throw out the bath water

    Actually, the time was before this year's EOYT, but that opportunity has been missed. The mid-year tests next year will be the last real opportunity for Link to rid himself of the perennial under-achievers and replace them with bodies that could front up at RWC time. There should be no howls...

    Tour of Switzerland

    What a fantastic effort by Cameron Meyer to finish 5th on the Queen stage of the Tour of Switzerland. If his climbing abilities continue to progress, combined with his time trial abilities, I can see some very good grand tour results in coming years. Is the Tour of Switzerland the most...
