    Wallabies 2021

    It can also be a chance to rehab some injuries that don't prevent a player from playing but need time off or minor surgery to heal properly.

    Scotland vs Australia - Murrayfield, 8 Nov 1:15AM AEDT

    This does support the idea will see Paia'aua, but if he is picked as the back up 10 I think we're more likely to see Daugunu with him on the bench.

    Broadcast options for Australian Rugby

    I think I'll get up and throw England v SA on, have a coffee and get to work on a proper Sunday morning breakfast, with the idea of having the breakfast ready to go for the Wales v Australia game. That should keep me distracted enough to get through the first game without ending up anywhere...

    Would love to see Hegarty get a call up as a 10/15 option

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    It shapes as a real test to see if world rugby has moved forward at all from the debacle that was the last bidding process and the failed league of nations.

    Wallabies 2021

    Pretty good break down of some of his defensive issues this year here: https://www.theroar.com.au/2021/06/23/is-it-time-to-show-the-winless-waratahs-some-love/ He's not played a game since then so it's hard to see how he would've improved since then, particularly if he has to play out of position.

    Reds 2022

    Yeah I follow him, a bit of stuff at Reds HQ in early September with a remedial therapist and a generic post of a few shots of him in Reds gear from late September but not much else of note. I haven't really been paying attention to his stories though. It maybe that he's having his fitness...

    Fijian Drua 2022

    More signings for the Drua: Good to see Teti Tela get a contract, he should be a good experienced influence around the squad, particularly in helping them settle into SEQ for 2022.

    Wallabies 2021

    Hard disagree on that. His decision making was very ordinary and he has a bad habit of skirting the wrong side of legal in his tackles. Don't get me wrong, I like him and think he has something to offer the Wallabies, but his defence is his biggest weakness right now and a big step down from...

    Wallabies 2021

    Lots of talk of calling in potential fullback replacements for Hodge, but I wonder if a 3rd string flyhalf is going to be more pressing? Kellaway, Petaia, Wright, Daugunu and O'Connor all offer some degree of cover at 15 but we really only have the have Cooper and O'Connor to cover fly half now...

    League of Nations or EOYT?

    They are, but are often seen as southern hemisphere, partially because of timezones but mostly because their club season lines up better with Super then it does with France/England.

    The Moana Pasifika Franchise

    San Diego Legion have just announced Ma'a Nonu has stuck with them for another year, so no chance he'll be coming to Moana Pasifika:

    GAGR Wallaby POTY 3-2-1s v JAP

    3 Valetini 2 Tupou 1 Petaia HM: Ikitau Weird game, quite a few players playing better as individuals than in the context of the team

    Wallabies v Japan, Oita - 23 October, 3:45pm AEDT

    Yeah, I think this game really highlighted the importance of Kerevi and Koribete to our current attacking structure. I have a feeling we'll see the depth chart start to look like 12 Kerevei/Perese 13 Ikitau/Paisami over the next year. It probably also improves Petaia and in particular Vunivalu's...

    Australian Bid for 2027 World Cup

    To be clear (because that stuff article absolutely wasn't) the US are bidding for both the 2027 and 2031 men's World cup, and the 2029 women's World cup. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/jun/10/us-rugby-world-cup-bid-nfl-college-stadiums Nothing much changes with this announcement...

    2022 Super W Season

    Looks like it's time to kick off this thread with the news that the Reds are getting an early start in preperation for the 2022 Super W season - they've assembled a squad of 48, well ahead of the usual start time:

    Aussie Player Exodus

    Sure, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be looking at a situation like this and working out how we can do better in the future. To be clear I don;t see missing out on Dolly as a failure of the system in NSW or Australia, just as an example of where it could be improved.

    Aussie Player Exodus

    Honestly, I think about one team more at the around that end of school level for NSW/QLD is a good mark to consider, that than sees it condense down to 2 as they hit 20s, the same mark where players start to move to Melbourne/Canberra/Perth to fill the gaps they have in talent production...

    Aussie Player Exodus

    Yeah, it looks like it's that next step around 17 where he dropped off the NSW/Australian radar, which just happened to coincide with a trip to the UK and him getting scouted by Sale before he had a chance to move up to any adult rugby here. Ideally you want to be staying in touch with these...
