    The Best in Australia by the numbers

    After half a packet of Tim Tams and five Rum and Cokes, I’ve done some data sets based on various criteria to see how each of the Australian provinces and individual Australian players are going thus far in the Super 14 for this year. Looking the above data, the thing that stands...

    Wallaby coach on the ‘Sabbatical’ debate

    Incoming Wallaby skills coach, Richard Graham, has given his support to top line players taking short-term overseas contracts as a way of improving their skills and re-invigorating themselves. Graham took a longer term view about player development, distinctly opposed to the short term view recently put forward by former All Black, Christian...

    REDS 26 CHIEFS 50 Full time A fine night in Brizzie tonight after a few showers earlier today.  Both teams are as program. This will be a cracker, after the Blues losing last night the Chiefs can take the title of the best NZ team with a win while the Reds have...

    Reds v Chiefs preview

    The good news this week that Big Kev Horwill and Van Humphries are returning to the Reds’ team has been tempered with the really shit news that Peter Hynes has been ruled out with a knee problem. This late change gives newcomer Rodney Davies the task of making Lelia Masaga, not an...

    Richard Graham speaks to G&GR

    Richard Graham, the newly appointed Wallaby skills coach, is looking forward to coming home to be part of the Wallabies set-up, not only because he’ll get to live close to Sydney’s great beaches, but more particularly working with Robbie Deans. Speaking to G&GR from his coaching den at English Premiership club, Saracens,...

    Who’s the best attacking Australian player?

    Based on the criteria below, I guess it’s down to Drew Mitchell, Diggers, Cliffy and David Pocock. Surprisingly for me is Scott Higginbotham, playing his first full season and featuring in both tables…onya Higgers!!! I love stats.

    Australian Super 14 Team of week 5

    1. Benn Robinson (Tahs) – Has gotten the better of his opposite numbers two weeks in a row and shown that he is the number one, no. 1 in the country. More often than not he was scrumming against two opponents, as George Smith would slide up along side the under pressure...

    The end is nigh for the Reds and this prophecy has been heralded with the arrival of the Four Horsemen of the Scrummaging Apocalypse – John Smit, the aptly named ‘Beast’ Mtawaria, Deon Castens and Jannie du Plessis. If you thought the Reds scrum was dished up last week, well wait until...

    All quiet on the Western Front

    The silence is deafening after the Force’s total capitulation last weekend against Waikato. What is going on? After an incredibly exhilarating win against the Brumbies, the meek effort produced against Waikato suggests perhaps that Gits and a raft of others may have more pressing things on their mind. Imagine if this sort...

    Juan’s Wallabies

    We are approximately a quarter of the way through the competition so it is timely to give Robbie Deans a hand and let him know what a Wallaby 22 would look like, based on this seasons’ form, if the Wallabies were playing a test match next week. 1. Benn Robinson (Tahs) –...

    Tahs v Reds Post Mortem

    NSW Waratahs 15 – Queensland Reds 11 . As these types of fixtures go, last night’s game was pretty good. Although the scoreboard may not show it, there was a fair bit of attacking rugby played, only to be totally dominated by both team’s brutal defences. At times even the Tahs got...
