    Australian Rugby / RA

    5:55pm kickoff in Perth, sunset 5:51pm - the aerial shots of the stadium will look amazing. The afternoon kickoffs worked well for Allianz Stadium in Sydney - was that the Ireland test a few years ago, in the old stadium? - because you can make a day of it around Paddington and surrounds. Not...

    Waratahs v Crusaders, Friday 12th April, in Sydney

    Feeling punchy, Pfitzy? More importantly, thanks for bringing this thread back to the top - it needs to stay there for another couple of weeks or so.

    Super Rugby 2024 General Chat

    Let's wait until the end of the season to be sure, as the Kiwi sides tend to finish strong, at which point the Aussie sides are struggling with depth. But it certainly seems more positive.

    Waratahs 2024

    I don't think talent ID is the issue in relation to those three players - with Pietsch and Gleeson, the concern is more that they haven't improved much. But they have plenty of talent. Perese is good, I don't see any issue there. And whilst the screen plays look pedestrian, the Tahs have made a...

    Waratahs v Crusaders, Friday 12th April, in Sydney

    Ned Slack-Smith's ongoing concussion issue must be a concern. But great to see Gleeson and Hanigan back.

    Waratahs 2024

    Is Reilly signed beyond this year? If so, I don't think he needs time for development as such, I'm happy with the Tahs picking either him or Mark for the remainder of the season. Next year will be very different anyway with Kellaway and Sua'ali'i joining. But then, if we're writing this season...

    Super Rugby 2024 General Chat

    It needs to be more frequent than every four years, but this would be awesome - an actual option that might increase interest in Super Rugby.

    Round 7: Brumbies v Waratahs, Sat 6th 7.35PM AEDT @ GIO Stadium

    Well, congrats to him on what he achieved. A great guy, and some special moments for the Tahs and the Reds.

    Round 7: Brumbies v Waratahs, Sat 6th 7.35PM AEDT @ GIO Stadium

    Is Eastwood's Next Wallaby still available? He's a proven try-scorer against the Crusaders...

    Waratahs 2024

    According to The Roar, the review of the Waratahs set-up (not just Coleman) will be run by Mike Chu, who's "High Performance Elite Education Manager" at World Rugby, and was for several years in coaching development at NZR. This seems hard to process - choosing someone with broad, relevant...

    Round 7: Brumbies v Waratahs, Sat 6th 7.35PM AEDT @ GIO Stadium

    Because Pietsch made one glaring error, but is otherwise has a very high workrate and is always solid. Same for Edmed, as others have pointed out here, the game plan doesn't seem to play to his strengths. Harrison should be given some decent time off the bench, but he won't work miracles either.

    Round 7: Brumbies v Waratahs, Sat 6th 7.35PM AEDT @ GIO Stadium

    There will be plenty of pressure on Pollard's lineout throws too. I hope the Wilson-Harrison axis gets some reasonable minutes.

    Broadcast options for Australian Rugby

    Well, NEP would normally be able to predict their workload very accurately - adding 12 games per weekend (mens and womens) wouldn't fit that easily! So, yes, you'd expect they'd have to pick up all the Global people and assets, at least in the short term.

    Broadcast options for Australian Rugby

    Did Global have their own infrastructure for broadcast, or were they already using NEP at stadiums, with Global just doing the mixing, etc? Crazy if they had their own infrastructure.

    Broadcast options for Australian Rugby

    You gotta hand it to Australian soccer - when they screw things up, they do it properly. They'll be a case study in how to burn through PE money.

    Round Six: Waratahs v Rebels Friday March 29, 7:35 pm SFS

    Yes, weird. I thought Wilson was being dropped to the A team to get some minutes, and perhaps build his connection with Harrison - but I would have thought this was the time to bring him back.

    Waratahs 2024

    Because Tahs will be overloaded with Sua'ali'i and Kellaway arriving?
