    Dicking around over: team vs France

    Adam Ashley-Cooper puts JO’C on the bench and Shmoo Mitchell’s back for Hynes in a pretty logical starting 15. The openside division of the team remains strong though with Waugh and Pocock making the bench. Oh, and still no LT or Tim Tam. For full team

    Wallabies vs Italy preview

    Obviously, after last week’s test, both Robbie Deans and Nick Mallet came to a gentlemen’s agreement that both would field their second XV’s for this week’s tests.

    Guess what – Craig Gower’s back in town to play against the Wallabies! And oh yeah – there are some other Italian blokes with him as well… While that’s been Aussie media spin on the Italian selection (how are we going to get bums on seats when there aren’t any ex-mungos in...

    Wallaby team vs Italy; first test

    Dingo’s still not dicking around, putting out a full-strength Wallaby side for this test in Canberra. The one unforced change being Rabbit O’Connor coming in for AAC who slides to the bench. AntipoDeans was obviously as impressed as everyone else. The forced change is Mumm in for the injured Hodgson, and Noodles...

    Big Kev keeps the faith

    With talk of key players jumping ship from HMAS Ballymore, the announcement of James Horwill’s re-signing for two years was a cause for celebration among long suffering Reds’ supporters.

Here’s the Reds vice captains edited highlights. There’s no doubt he had a brilliant game, predominantly playing at first receiver, despite...
