    Euro Tour Player Ratings

    It feels like unfinished business unless we go through the Wallabies on tour, sum up their performance and see what we’ve learned for the future from them. Forwards: Ben Alexander – good first steps but more time scrummaging required. Is he going to finally start for the Brumbies?? 6 Alastair Baxter –...

    Wallabies vs France Teams

    Here are the teams for Australia vs France this Saturday at Stade de France.Robinson gets a rest with Alexander at loose head and Kepu on the bench. Palu’s back at 8 after his rampage at Twickers and Brown’s injury. Chisholm hits the bench, MMM replaces him and Mumm steps into blindside. A...

    Wallabies vs Italy Teams Padua

    Below is the Australia team to play Italy in Padova this weekend. Why we’re announcing teams later than any other team in the world, I’m not sure, because this squad of 22 has been leaked accurately over the past 3 days. On the positive side, it’ll be fascinating to see Barnes at...

    Wallaby team vs All Blacks in Honkers & preview

    With all the leaking that happened this week in Hong Kong it wasn’t really a surprise when the Australian Bledisoe team sheet hit. A few thoughts on it: Some call it a “get Carter” ploy, but I reckon Mortlock at 12 is more of a necessity. Barnes’ kicking game is going to...

  • Wallabies squad for European Tour

    Here’s the Australia squad for the Euro tour. The big news is that Aussie Robbie Deans has continued to pump in fresh talent with four new caps – he even created an extra 34th spot for James O’Connor, although presumably he only needs a childs plane fare. The other new caps go...

    Australia 81-12 Canada by Duncan Wood Australia laid down an impressive marker for the rest of the IRB Junior World Championship as they overwhelmed a plucky Canadian team 81-12 on a cool, dry afternoon at Rodney Parade in Newport on Friday. The win was based on a significant power advantage up front...

    Hurricanes vs Western Force: video highlights & score

    Hurricanes 21 – Force 10 Despite having nothing really to play for, solid defence from the Force managed to restrict the Canes to 2 tries, which could well prove important from a Waratahs home semi perspective. In only his second match in Super 14, the 17 year old James O’Connor had his...

    Western Force vs Chiefs; video highlights & score

    Western Force 22 – Chiefs 21 This game was the one highlight in an otherwise pretty dismal super 14 weekend for Aussie teams, losing 3 out of 4 games. Having watched the game, no one really blew me away from the Force’s point of view. It was a pretty solid team effort,...

    Reds vs Force Super 14: Video highlights and review

    Reds 29 – Force 12.Despite sleeping on it to try and come up with some inspiration, I can’t find any glowing words about this Reds performance – unlike their showing away at the Bulls. Defense held firm, but otherwise this match was more about what the Force couldn’t do, than what the...

    Force vs Waratahs Super 14 2008 Score & finals run

    Western Force 12 – Waratahs 17 With this hard fought win the Waratahs have taken an unconvincing season start and turned it into the foundations of a serious charge at the 2008 Super 14 semi-finals. Thanks to Sky only showing two matches this weekend, I’ve been able to see diddly-squat of this...

    Western Force 24 –Canterbury Crusaders 29 Despite conceding 17 unanswered points in the second half to lose the match, the Force stepped up to the plate today and in many ways outplayed this champion Crusader outfit. Gone were the dropped passes and turnovers. Back was the pace and width on the ball....
