    Bledisloe # 3 - Saturday 31st October, ANZ Stadium

    I could have been coaching Uraguay or better yet Georgia. At least they have some passion about them. At least the Ozzie dollar should hold up and I can buy a nice house when I get out of this shit show.

    Bledisloe # 3 - Saturday 31st October, ANZ Stadium

    Are you seriously that challenged at comprehension? Go back and read what I posted. Don't post until you comprehend. It is not harsh. It is truth. I tried babying apprentices along in my two vastly different professions and I found in both cases they got over inflated senses of their worth...

    O'Keefe had a pretty poor game, IMO, but this is consistent with his regular performances. He doesn't police the scrum properly, and never has. He also doesn't police the ruck properly and never has. His big thing at the ruck is playing people past the ruck and he penalised that three times...

    Bledisloe # 3 - Saturday 31st October, ANZ Stadium

    Funny all the people saying the ABs beating the Wallabies regularly is the problem. It is not. Don't forget, regardless of the coach the Wallabies discounting the dead cat bounce of the 2015 RWC have been breaking records for poor performances since the retirement of the last amateurs. Our...

    Bledisloe # 3 - Saturday 31st October, ANZ Stadium

    You obviously don't get it. What I am saying is that the blokes at Shute level are playing and executing skills better at their level with their peers. Yes its not as intense or hard, but it is relative. I will say it outright, the Wallabies are frauds. They are not able to execute basic...

    Bledisloe # 3 - Saturday 31st October, ANZ Stadium

    Ummm...... Has not happened since amateur days. The last player to play for the Wallabies not on some sort of contract/ Super level etc was Steve Merrick, and he showed in his two tests to be a far better half than Gregan who replaced. Its a relative statement anyway. Full time professionals...

    The base skills of the Wallabies are rubbish. Lolesio is a poor defender, and like the endless debates of Cooper defending at 15, if he doesn't deserve the position at 10 then he shouldn't be selected. Daugunu is displaying skills closer to his long term average. I watched the Shute Shield...

    Alright, lets make it achievable. Its a Corporation. Lets let it go broke, actively lobby to make it happen and lets re-constitute it after that as something that is actually functional.

    Points 3 and 2 should be linked but they are not and haven't been for some time. By that I mean the "grassroots you speak of are not watching or paying to attend the games that these "elite" business people are putting on. Hence they are not a business, they are a socialist enterprise existing...

    I said nearly 12 months ago my only real concern in the collapse of RA is the fate of real community rugby. I don't give a shit at all about the Wallabies or NSW or any of the others now. They could disappear up their own arses tomorrow, or preferably tonight for all I care. I will give a brief...

    Super Rugby Rnd 2 2020: NSFW Waratahs vs Auckland Blues

    Why waste money on overpaid show ponies with comparatively poor skills. I'd rather take that coin and go to my local club games and give them the money. I am not talking Shute type club either. There I can see blokes and women and kids playing for the love of the game, with comparatively good...

    Super Rugby Rnd 3 2020 Brumbies v Highlanders @ Canberra - Saturday February 15th 7:15pm AEDT

    Will and Australian side beat a non Australian side this year, not including the Sunwolves?

    Law 21/15. If a player who is on or beyond the dead-ball-line, or who is in touch-in-goal, catches or picks up a ball within in-goal, that player has made the ball dead.

    Super Rugby Rnd 3 2020 Brumbies v Highlanders @ Canberra - Saturday February 15th 7:15pm AEDT

    Gregan is an absolute numpty. He is extracting money under false pretences. 100%of the time when he makes a statement about the Laws he is wrong. Add in Clarke and Horan and there is a negative IQ in the commentary. Nick Berry did all he could to justify not enforcing the actual laws, he...

    Waratahs 2020

    I do agree about Penney, it is next to impossible to judge on this years results, to a large degree. In saying that its hard to blame this on Gibson, as he was definitely gone last year. This comes down to Tahs management and board not ensuring succession planning AGAIN. Let us not forget that...

    Over the past two weeks Folau has proved my previously made points perfectly. We (Rugby) never needed to take any action against him, just nod and say righto Israel, that's your opinion you can have it. Please just keep it to yourself mate and let be. You know he won't because the...

    Wallaby Coach Conga Line

    At this stage I don't care who the coaching candidates are. The process is what matters and it has to be strong. When Deans got the job, he didn't even enter the process, he ignored it and was given the job over the top of those who went through it. That is a just a massive breach. Then Link...

    I seriously doubt that. The England game plan last night took the ABs apart. Their work at the lineout just one aspect that was designed to counter the ABs ability to pressure and turn over the ball. Second look at the way in which they attack the ABs midfield and then kicked to space. Tying...

    Australian Rugby / RA

    A person of integrity, holding a formal position of leadership for an organisation doesn't in good faith maintain that position and at the same time negotiate to over throw it by stealth with not only a competitor but one that would completely supplant that organisation. If you read the book the...
