    Rugby on Youtube

    Have you ever wanted to double check Lee Grant’s claim of outstanding scrum performance in some obscure ITM, Aviva, Currie or Top 14 game of the past year and lacked the resources? Ever wanted to do a Scotty Allen type backline analysis from an early Rugby Championship game this year? Or just...

    TdF rider performance numbers

    Cyclist performance measurer, SRM, posts the numbers on some the TdF riders on their blog - see http://www.srm.de/go.htm. The piece on Sagan called "Sagan Delivers 1,400+ Watt Max for Stage 6 Win" caught my eye. I am not a cyclist and have no idea on what a normal non-professional cyclo would...

    Le Tour 2012

    Forgive me father for I have sinned - it has been too long since my last post on GAGR. I have been busier than a brick layer in Baghdad … but I have been lurking. Only 10 more sleeps till the start of Le Tour 2012 !! The below piece by Rupert in the SMH got me motivated to write...

    Blue Mtns bushfires

    Scarfie, Lindo, others - Are you ok up there? Damn those arsonists. I hope this doesn't make for a bad summer. I grew up in the mountains and recall the Dec/Jan ritual of clearing out the gutters and stuffing rags and tennis balls in the drain pipes then filling them with water. I will...

    Basic website platform?

    I have been tinkering with the idea of starting a website associated with my profession (commercial real estate) but totally separate from my employment and not for profit. Can anyone recommend a simple platform to start with or point me in the right direction? A friend has suggested Ning, any...

    Mongrel – what is it? who has it? is it warranted?

    A few postings on the EOYT thread about Cliffy Palu got me thinking about the concept of ‘mongrel’. Players are often said to have or to lack mongrel. So what exactly is mongrel? The ole dick n’ arry (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/mongrel) refers to mongrel as “toughness and...

    Anybody want to play v the France Parliamentary XV?

    The Oz Embassy in Paris is calling for any interested current or hasbeen rugby players to pull on the boots for a one-off friendly of aussies (or Pac Islander ring ins - Nadola that means you) v the France Parliamentary XV. I think it will be a crowd warmer for the Wallabies game at Stade on the...

    Cool rugby billboard

    Hey RF, get a load of this. See below a cool billboard splashed across town at the moment. Tahs marketing department, please take note. Something like this featuring the Tah man would look great around Sydney in the lead up to all the home games.

    Websites for sharing photos?

    Can anyone recommend a good web site for storing photos ? I have been using Flickr to store photos for family back home to see and download but it has finally done my head in and I want to try somewhere else. It needs to be password or designated user access only, and free to use (I’m a...

    Le Tour

    Gotta love Le Tour. For me, it's (almost but not quite) up there with a Wallabies game as a sporting event that I am passionate about. I follow the other grand tours a bit but there's nothing like the spectacle of Le Tour. Ever since my first born was a new born some 7 years ago when night...

    Clermont finally wins

    I didn't watch the game but it appears to have been a kick fest which is often the case for finals when teams go for any points possible. Others more knowledgable could possibly comment on the actual game or the Clermont hoodoo...

    French Six Nations Grand Slam?

    Les Bleus remain favourites to complete a Six Nations Grand Slam on Saturday night. In the unlikely event that they lose against England and finish on equal points with the Irish the crown should still go to France on for and against. The French have played an exciting brand of rugby and deserve...

    Breaking down the breakdown

    From the GGR Smith & Pocock highlights reel, how would the steals be ruled under the new interpretation. If not for all our benefit, then could I get some help on clarifying the new breakdown rule? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXLYBa5YIqw 0.18 – Pocock tackles, stays on feet and immediately...

    Off field Wallaby videos

    I have mixed feelings about the videos being posted elsewhere (rugby.com.au & chasing the glory) that follow the wallabies off the field. When I first watched some of them, it was just after the Scotland game and I felt like throwing my laptop out the window with anger. Just maybe if they had...
