  • Unintentional Consequences

    Eddie Jones was right! These rules changes are mucking up the game. Let me digress. In Eddie’s regular diatribes against the ELVs he made the particularly interesting point that making the tackle contest too much of a contest would change the shape of rugby (my words, his thoughts). We did see that...

    Battle of the loosies

    Bugger me if there aren't some great loose forwards doing the rounds in Super 14 2009. A review of them and look at how the Wallabies back row is shaping up, as well as looking forward to the battle between George Smith and David Pocock for openside flanker

    Smith vs Ref madness

    On Friday George Smith won another player’s gong, picking up the RUPA medal. Hard to argue against. He is after all the world’s best seven. Yet again Smith churned out a tour of top class performances. For me though, what was so impressive, was the way he still managed to impose himself,...

    Division 2 – the Northern Hemisphere

    . Killer scoreline of the year; Southern Hemisphere 20 – Northern Hemisphere 1. This of course refers to the number of times the Tri-Nations kicked the arse of their European cousins over the past 12 months, aggregating into what can only be described as a total butt-rape. So now the question is...

  • Sanction this

    Last week Moses made some great points about how random the roll out of the ELVs seems to have been. It looks so bad that I can only think its a ruse employed by the usual dinosaurs to try and scupper them. Thanks to those still stuck in the 70’s, the mess...
