    Crusaders v Rebels Friday 13th

    friday 13th unlucky for some, too early to discuss ? on the basis of what we have seen and heard from the rebels 2015 and TT penchant for brute force, i suspect the following, on the assumption PAE isn't too injured smith leafa (sexton) weeks jones neville mcmahon fuglistaller (faianga'a)...

    Stars vs Rising, 31 August at Leichart

    this once would possibly have been be billed as Sydney Uni A vs Sydney Uni B, but not now. Rising looked really good in parts last week, especially the last 20 minutes. Stars looked good for the opening 15 mins of their game. personally i am looking forward to seeing Lopeti Timani run into...

    Rebels 2015

    so with the signing of "aussie" mike and the capitulation of last night NOW is the the time for 2015 thread. mike harris is a solid performer, but one would think that he will be a back up to hegarty at 10, inman at 12 and woodward at 15, on the assumption the last two hang around. what...

    are the IRB nuts ?

    kurindrani gets 8 weeks + 1 - 4 = 5 for a clumsy but not a malicious tackle. we all know the IRB are trying to stamp out dangerous play, but this is the sort of ban that people used to get for stomping on someones head. with this precedent the next next deliberate and dangerous tackle should get...

    Refereeing The Breakdown

    on friday and again last night (19/21) lots of penalties at the ruck and maul. nothing unusual about that. except, to my eye there seems to have been a significant change in the emphasis between releasing the ball carrier and tackler rolling away and the tackled player releasing the ball. last...
