    Rugby Championship 2021

    I'm a member and haven't seen anything. Folks are lifetime members and haven't received anything. Very strange.

    Rugby Championship 2021

    Does anyone have any info on tickets and where they are available from? Their socials have said come on sale tomorrow at 3pm aest. I just looked online and some site called theticketmerchant is claiming to sell some. Ticketek is already selling tickets for the Suncorp games and a bunch of the...

    Wallabies v France, Brisbane, Sat 17th July, 8pm

    I like that 23. On currently selectable players I don't think there is much / anything I would change. Hoping Lolesio & Banks continue to grow into their roles. Hodge will be underdone but has played plenty of intl rugby before so hopefully will be fine.

    Wallabies 2021

    I believe there is and that organisation in Australia is RUPA. Part of the players contracts stipulates that they can only perform duties related to work up to a maximum of X hrs / week. This includes games, training, gym and also things like video reviews and team meetings. I was shocked when I...

    Waratahs 2022

    I haven't read through this entire thread yet but has anyone suggested trying to get Quade down there as a mentor and 10/15 option? I really like the look of Donaldson and Harrison. Would like to see more of Harrison at 15 to develop his "scope". Also think Maddocks has a heap of potential. Tahs...

    Wonder if the Force would pick him up. Certainly be an upgrade. Quade looks very fit. Edit: forgot they had picked up the 2 young guns. Posted in Waratah 2022 my thoughts on it.

    Wallabies 2021

    Big no for me. Hodge doesn't have that next level in him(yet). He is a little below Mr reliable tag for me. Still misses tackles he should make, throws some shocking passes and his rugby IQ isn't where it should be for a guy with his experience. I like him, seems like a good honest toiler but...

    Wallabies 2021

    Comparing one player's defensive capabilities who was in the Tahs 2021 team to one of say the Brumbies 2021 team is folly. Their defensive structure and organisation was a mess. This train of thought is like saying the equivalent Brumbies players shouldn't be selected because they made half as...

    Very good points Rodha. I agree.

    Wallabies 2021

    I had forgotten how young Isi is. Only 26. Honestly thought he was about 30. We really need to keep him in oz for the next world cup. Should be in the prime of his career then. His TT form has been impressive. I am happy for Kellaway. Think he has potential to be a test player however he just...

    TT R5 Hurricanes v Reds Friday 5:05PM

    I have that unfortunate feeling that this game will be a pantsing. Hurricanes hurting from last week, particularly Jordie. With a NZ jersey on the line I can see him stepping up and having a blinder. Odd Reds selections in the backs. Very concerned they will run rampant through / around our...

    I've always felt Toomua is a better test player than Super player. I may be misremembering however I recall him being very good when he was brought on during the last world cup. He was great last year, I think that will be enough in DR's mind to give him a crack at 12 for the Wobs. I am also in...

    Reds 2022

    I understand they are still having to manage him and his workload quite a bit after his terrible achillies injury in the UK. Would be a great pick up for the Reds. Passionate QLDer with a wealth of experience to pass on. Still a few good years in him.

    Reds 2022

    Plus Scott Gale. Embarrassment of riches for the Heavies at half back this year. You would imagine at least 1 will push to another club next year. Young Christian has been very, very impressive. Heeno will be hesitant to shift him from starting 9. IIRC Moses Sorovi was told to move on from UQ...

    R3 Reds v Chiefs, turmoil in Townsville?

    Weird hey. I think he has been great at 15 and has shown this year he has the best kick in the squad. Puzzling. I don't think Hegarty has him in any area except as a distributor when slotting into 10. Edit: just saw he has a groin strain. Points stand.

    SR T-T R3: Waratahs v Crusaders

    Agreed. Surprised and disappointed to not see more of Woods after his impressive debut.

    TT Rnd 1: Highlanders v Reds

    Need to use Campbell on the exits. Has the longest most accurate kick this year. His 1 clearance tonight was try line to out on the 40.

    TT Rnd 1: Highlanders v Reds

    Not even the best at his club IMO, not even top 3. The continued selection is mind boggling. Hasn't shown anything during his game time to justify his selection over Sorovi. He is young and will get better but isn't super level yet. Really my only major issue with selections at the moment. Would...

    Jeez how did I forget him. Agreed, he is top of the list.

    Wallabies 2021

    Funny isn't it. Everyone thought we would be stuffed however I have thought for the last year or 2 that we are coming into a golden era for Locks in Australia. We've never had depth like this before. I actually think the guy with the highest ceiling you've left out, Nick Frost. Add again to...
