    SR T-T R4 Brumbies vs Hurricanes

    Brumbies at home and hurting. Hurricanes might be second but they've had their share of luck and look the flakiest of the five NZ teams to me. Do I dare pick an Aussie team in the tipping comp? If I am going to pick one this week the Brumbies might be it, as the Blues look to be just too...

    SR T-T R4 Clan Vs Waratahs

    This might be the game the Tahs spring a surprise. They weren't that far off last weekend and if they are going to do it this season it probably has to be this week. Still, I reckon the bookies will have them at +30. Maybe a value bet at the TAB rather than a long shot at the tipping comp.

    RC4 - Australia v Argentina

    Well, no one seemed very happy with the game against South Africa, even though we had half our best team out. So how do we expect to go this Saturday. Will Pocock, Folau and Coleman be back? Will it make a difference?

    Waratahs 2019

    The Waratahs 2018 thread seems to have morphed into a 2019 thread so I'm starting this one. Now that we've missed out on Naisirani (again) what are we going to do about our powder-puff locks and backrowers. We seem to have no Palu-type backrowers coming through but lots of workhorses. Dempsey...

    Round 18: Waratahs v Sunwolves, Saturday 7:15 AET, SFS

    After getting beaten everywhere except on the scoreboard last week, will the real Waratahs turn up this week or will they continue to meander along to their now-guaranteed home final. A three try bonus point might just sweep them into second place, so there is a huge incentive dangling there...

    Round 13!!!!!, Crusaders v Waratahs

    The lightweight speedy Waratahs vs the big powerful Crusaders. Its just like back in the primary school playground and I expect the same result. Number 39 coming up.

    Super Rugby Round 2: Waratahs v Stormers

    The Waratahs start their campaign at Allianz next Saturday night against the Stormers, who are already on four points after their win last night against the Jaguares. Have at it:

    Round 9: Waratahs v Kings

    The Waratahs most important match of the season. Not because of the outcome but because this must mark the change from klutzes to contenders. From here the Waratahs can, at best, afford to drop one more game in the season, so this must be the game they turn their season around and play to their...

    Force v Waratahs, R9 2016

    Desperate times for desperate teams. Is Lance back? Is TPN back? The Force are the Tahs bogey team, mainly because they turn the breakdown into a shitfight and slow down delivery to the Tahs backline - ergo, no go forward.

    Trial: Waratahs vs Three Shute Teams

    As there will be no TV and the quality of rugby reporting elsewhere is so dismal, all Waratah attendees are requested to provide match reports and comments in this thread. "NSW expects this day that every man (and woman) will do their duty."

    "ARU gives Deans a big tick"

    AUSTRALIAN RUGBY UNION chairman Michael Hawker insists there is no added pressure on Wallabies coach Robbie Deans heading into the final year of his contract, admitting the ARU was ''happy'' with how his side was travelling. Read more...

    How many contracted players?

    There has been some comment on the Reds threads after they lost three players in one week that there are not enough contracted players for next year. Any Tah or Brumbies fan would have found this to be a statement of the bleeding obvious. For example, the Tahs fourth hooker has just done his...

    Waratahs vs Force - 2011R12

    This is one of those games that the Tahs can only look forward to with trepidation. The Force are getting all their injured players back and are beginning to play with some real style. Meanwhile, half the Tahs are still in casualty and some of those uninjured are not going very well at all...

    Adelaide Sevens

    Just back from watching most of the second day of the Adelaide Sevens and was fairly disappointed with a number of things: Australia: I think the Australian team is under the misguided belief that you can't play sevens if you are over 80kg or 175 cm. We looked like a team of midgets. As...

    Blues vs Crusaders - 2011R01

    Got all fired up thinking the Tahs were looking like specials for the comp, and then watched this game on Saturday. Both teams were a grade above anything else I saw on the weekend (Reds v Force unlikely to change my mind). Hard to say anyone played badly but I thought Mealamu was absolutely...

    Firing up the Tah crowd

    I am so looking forward to this year's comp, I just can't wait. But there is one thing that just gets on my goat about the games at the SFS - that lots of the so-called supporters aren't real supporters. Last year in the game against the Hurricanes I took my seat and a bunch of business suits...
