    Chiefs vs Brumbies preview & teams

    On the face of things the Chiefs are strong favourites for this game; they’ve won 6 out of their last 7 games, including the Canes just last week and are a try scoring machine. However, if there’s any team to take the Chiefs, its the Brumbies. There’s only one way for the...

    Wallaby Watch – Loosehead Prop

    The incumbent(s): Benn Robinson (NSW): Fat Cat has established himself well and truly in the Wallaby team. He would be, I would think, one of the first two or three players picked. In fact, there aren’t many better loosehead props world-wide than Benn Robinson. I’ll go a step further and say he...

    S14 stat attack: Aussie players

    We let our stat gimp loose on the teams and he couldn’t stop himself delving into the individual players as well. So here they all are. For the most part they reinforce what you might already suspect, but there are a few surprises……..

    Brumbies vs Brutes preview and teams

    So we’re all thinking the Brumbies are destined for the finals now, with the memory of Macka to play for and karma catching up with Botha and Matfield; Bakkies getting 3 weeks, and Victor getting life (another sprog). Add captain Hoiles returning from injury for an extra bonus. And then KAPOW. A...

    Aussie S14 team of week 9

    1. Ben Alexander (Brumbies) – Superb performance with his workrate and willingness to truck the ball-up, just what was needed on a night where the conditions were appalling. 2. Squeeky Moore (Brumbies) – Lead the Brumbies front row which dominated the Stormers pack. Had a pretty solid night with his line-out work...
