    Australia v New Zealand Brisbane Tri-Nations Review

    In the hope that this wouldn’t just turn into a full rant, I’ve slept on it. Unfortunately though, the next morning it’s not looking that much better.

    Wallabies 24 – All Blacks 28. Fahhk. I’m going to need some time to write anything semi-objective about this game, as today Australia managed to excite and infuriate in almost equal measure in a loss that handed the Tri Nations to New Zealand for the umpteenth friggen time. So I’ll try and...

    Wallabies vs All Blacks, preview of the Tri-Nations decider

    The start of the new Australian rugby dream, and any meaningful success comes down to this one test in Brisbane on Saturday. A loss, and the only difference from 2007 is the South African Hoodoo broken, but at the cost of a record thrashing. A win, and regardless what happens in Honkers...

    Wallabies vs All Blacks second Tri-Nations test preview

    Here it is – a speed preview. I reckon Australia can do it. The laws of averages and stats say that’s foolish, but fµck it. I can’t remember the last time the Aussie team had so much confidence and so much going for it. Yep, it’s early days and this is a...

    Wallabies vs All Blacks first Tri-Nations test review

    I’ve watched this game twice now, and I’m still having troubles finding the words to describe it, or rather Australia’s role in the match. Because for this Bledisloe, there was only one word: breathtaking. In some ways it’s difficult to pinpoint any single player, as all the Wallabies had a hand in...

    Wallabies team for first Trinations test against All Blacks

    The cheap shot from that cµnt Bakkies Botha on stirling Mortlock (how did this not get cited?) means Australia goes into the first Bledisloe test against New Zealand in Sydney without their captain and AB’s bogeyman. Ryan Cross has been impressive all year, but there’s a good reason why the Kiwis call...
