    ANZAC Day 2020

    A poignant event, this year the only one since 1916 (exempting the WWII years, understandably) without a public celebration. I've enjoyed listening to Eric Bogle and The Pogues, none of them Aussies, with their recognitions of our history. Listen here: Eric Bogle: The Pogues: There's a...

    All rowing matters from anywhere in Oz involving schoolboys or schoolgirls to go up here. In addition to our forum rules, the following additional rules apply specifically to our schoolboy forums. They are simple to follow and we've found them to provide a good balance between allowing...

    Wallabies 2019 Thread

    Might 's well start the selection lottery early. Squad size is 31, the 2015 squad is broken down as follows: 2 hookers, 5 props, 4 locks, 6 backrowers, 2 scrummies, 2 five-eighths, 3 inside backs and 7 outside backs. I seem to recall Cheika selected two XVs due to the closeness of the first two...

    England v Australia, Sunday 19 November 2:00am AEDT

    Australia have been around the world a coupla times the last eight weeks while the Poms have had their feet up in Blighty. The Wallabies win over Wales looked slightly more competent than the Poms over Argentina but, it was the Soap Dodgers first hitout since, what, the 6 Nations? Anyways...

    England v Australia, Saturday 3 December

    The last test on our EoYT for 2016, and possibly the most difficult. We can only hope and pray our Argentinean friends belt two shades of tripe out of the Poms. THIS is the test when I feel Cheika's rotation policy against the French will come to bear fruit. Is Genia available for this test...

    Ireland v Australia, Saturday 26 November

    The first of two remaining HUGE tests on our EoYT. One would presume the selectors will choose the team (+ reserves) immediately after the French test and then allocate the rest to the French Barbarians match. Will the 15/23 be sent to Ireland early in the week, or will they stay and watch the...

    France v Australia, Saturday 19 November

    Is Coleman out? Does Cheik start Cooper and Genia? I'd imagine the bench will revert to 5/3 for this match.

    French Barbarians v Australia, Thursday 24 November

    prop: Ala'alatoa Robertson hooker: Ready lock: Arnold backrow: McMahon Mumm scrumhalf: Powell flyhalf: centre: Godwin wing: Kellaway Morahan fullback: Those in red start against the French Barbarians. To make up a 23 we need two props, a hooker, a lock, a lock/backrower+two backrowers, a...

    Waratahs v Hurricanes, round 16, 9 July 2016

    A must win game for the Tahs. Their performances against the Chiefs and Sunwolves would seem to suggest the players have finally got Gibson's message as well as running in to a rich vein of form approaching the finals: they're working their arses off backing up, for starters, and have stopped...

    Waratahs 2017

    Carrying on from my earlier observation about the current Tahs squad, we desperately need a coupla proper locks. Dennis (who's doing a superb job in the second row this year) is off to Blighty, Mumm would appear to be on the wane and Lousi and Skelton don't look to be developing beyond their...

    Waratahs v Bulls, Round 12, 14 May 2016

    Can the Tahs continue on their winning ways? One would hope a week back in their familiar beds and no travel will see the Tahs refreshed and ready to hand the Bulls a pounding. Anybody got any info on the wounded ones?

    Waratahs v Cheetahs, Round 11, 7 May 2016

    The Tahs have to scurry back from Safferland, the Cheetahs a gentle roll down the coast from Brisbane. Will the travel hamstring the Tahs? Are the Cheetahs homesick for their beloved high veldt? Only a few home games left, 'bout time we had a decent pre-match session for the G&GR faithful.

    RWC 2015 Semi Final 2 - Australia v Argentina Twickenham, Monday 19 October, 2:45 AEDT

    Argentinean rugby has come along enormously this year with wins against South Africa and Ireland as well as pushing Australia and New Zealand close in tough matches. The single biggest area of improvement has been in their backplay: they've finally discovered those blokes wearing jumpers from 11...

    RWC: AUS v WAL (Twickenham): POOL A; 2:45am (AEDT) Sunday 11 October

    Are there any Welshmen left standing for this match? Could one of the resident boyos put up a suggested red team.
