    Women's Rugby

    Most of the matches are played overseas - in the past the team has gone years without a home test, or even a test match at all. The TV time is equally limited, and the merchandise is almost exclusively available online. It's not like RA are doing much to make the women's game more accesible...

    Wallabies v France, Paris, Sun 6th Nov 7am AEDT

    The rotation also pretty much mimics what will happen in the first five matches of the world cup next year. Realistically we will have weaker sides out for Georgia and the final qualifier. We will have a slightly stronger team for Fiji, and the strongest team for Wales and the Quarter Final...

    Wallabies 2023

    He's just signed to Castres until the end of 2026, by which stage he'd be well and truly eligible for France. I doubt he'll get picked.

    Super Rugby 2022

    Seems that the Brumbies have cut ties with Plus 500. The Plus 500 logo is no longer on their kit or anywhere on their website. So I make that all five teams starting the year off without a major sponsor.

    Broadcast options for Australian Rugby

    I'm not concerned at all. There's an EOI page online for Stan Sport for new and existing customers. Stan's marketing strategy for new shows and products seem to be making an announcement early on, but not adding much to the app until a week or two out from release date. It works for all the...

    Rugby Championship in an Aussie bubble?

    That's the price for two tickets. In the presale you had to select exactly how many tickets you wanted to sign in so they gave you the total price rather than individual seats.

    Where to for Super Rugby?

    I assume it would be Pulu. Getting on a bit and hasn't had more than a few games this year.

    RWC 2019 New Zealand vs Italy

    I would imagine there was a contingency for smaller storms, but this one is literally the biggest in the world this year. Given the disruption to transport and emergency services due to the storm, it would have been extremely hard to relocate the match. This is potentially a similar situation to...

    Pacific Nations Cup 2015

    First of all. I can count around 13 Japanese-born (either in Japan or to at least one Japanese parent) players in the matchday 23. If we look at most Test teams that's pretty standard. Also the Sunwolves, despite regularly losing, drew some of the highest crowds in Super Rugby. Hardly a...

    The Israel Folau saga

    The Israel Folau saga

    This is a flawed argument and is entirely based on how you think about the situation. As a gay man who grew up playing and refereeing rugby and hearing that sort of language it severely impacted on my mental health. It also severely impacted on most of my gay friends. Language like that is...

    Global Rapid Rugby

    If RA and the unions in Australia had some foresight they would seek partnerships with some of these teams so that players can be exchanged for development, and with a condition that Australians playing for partner teams could play for the Wallabies.
