You guys have spent the past two weeks ranking The Wallabies against one another – lets see how the two-peat affected your take on the players’ performance. The first chart is the player’s rank. The second chart shows the the player’s thumbs up to thumbs down ratio, with less than one being a bad performance. This is the blue line. The column represents the volume of the votes that were garnered both positive and negative. Matt Toomua had such a good ratio this week I had to change the scale all the way to 18. I draw a line in the…
If you have a read of the unauthorised autobiography of Quade Cooper, that is his Wikipedia page, you’ll quickly notice that there have been some steady climbs in public opinion followed by a sharp fall. He is definitely on the up curve at the the moment, so lets hope he can maintain that form both on and off the field. As coach Ewen McKenzie says: ‘He’s in a good place at the moment’. Let’s keep him there. Click on the image for a larger version Editors note: The start of this infographic should be 1988 (not 1998) – Sorry
In the first dispatch from the NSA and Wikileaks we’ve been handed the private and confidential messages from the European rugby tour. It’s riveting reading and this sort of insight will set the Wallabies on the path to World Cup glory in 2015. VERITAS. Gibbo
The data used in all of the is from the ‘Have a Rank’ posts that are published each week and you – the GAGR proletariat – vote upon. Week on week you guys vote with a thumbs up or thumbs down per starting player. Your rankings with thousands of votes cast every week are pretty a good gauge on the team and the players’ form. So here is all of the data since the start of The Rugby Championship for the key Wallaby players. (James O’Connor was left out as he won’t feature again this year) The average score for a back is…
This week has been like an Episode of The Bold and the Beautiful. More relationship status changes than you can poke a stick at. Alun Wyn Jones seems to have accepted the Iron Throne on behalf of the Welsh Nation. Sam Warburton finally succumbed to the injury plague (or is he just scared to lose to Australia again?). What is George Smith listening to? What odds is Tom Waterhouse offering on the Robbie Deans beheading? You’ll find all the answers to the most important questions of the Lions tour in this weeks dispatch.
Have your say In my opinion there were three key moments in the Test where things could have gone a very different way. If you think there is another option – feel free to comment. Gibbo.

We got through the politics of selection meetings, we may have even gotten over the fact Quade isn’t in the team – but have the players? Does Clive have any mates after the endless bus trip around Canberra? Will Gordon Bray finally join Facebook? Will Robbie Deans send the olive branch to Tom Carter? Dive in and have a read of this weeks edition of “The Lions Tour as it happened on Facebook”. Cheers, Gibbo.
Welcome to Week 3 of the Lions tour Facebook wall. Where more errors are made than a South African referee. There is more innuendo than a Private School slumber party. There is more slander than at the News of the World. It was a big week both on and off the field for the Lions. What do you think they really got up to? Cheers, Gibbo

If the Super Rugby teams existed in Westeros, which families would bend the knee? We take a look at the teams and their history to find out who would win the Game of Thrones? By the old Gods and the new – Let’s get into it. SPOILER ALERT – this is up to date with the most recent episode of Season Three and much can be derived from it. Blues – House Mormont Were a once proud family, Now just some spent cranky dudes out of their depth. In recent times have been sent into all sorts of exile and can’t really…
