    Force v Highlanders Preview: Shepherd’s Pie

    In what has been a prick of a season so far, the Western Force have an opportunity to post a rare brace of wins following last week’s victory over the Stormers. With their international backrow of Pocock, Brown and Hodgson back on deck for the first time since Round 1, combined with...

    2010 Aussie Rugby Wishes

    It’s been at least a week since there was any Aussie rugby, and so I’ve naturally completely forgotten coming plumb last in the Tri-Nations and stuffing a once in a quarter of a century Grand Slam chance (including losing to Scotland, FFS). As such, the incurable optimism of the Wallaby supporter has...

    Force Have Real Firepower in 2010

    If ever there was a time for the Western Force to fulfill their real potential it’s now. They’ve essentially been a journeyman outfit since entering the Super 14 competition in 2006. I don’t mean that in a negative way because they’ve achieved more in the last four years than many of the...

    Melbourne Rebels Super 15: Up and Running?

    Update 29 Sept: It has been reported in today’s media that the VRU Rebel’s bid Chairman (and media buying giant) Harold Mitchell has broken bread with VicSuper15 Group’s Ray Evans and Glenn Fowles, with a resultant merged board likely to result from the negotiations and with Mitchell appointed as Chairman. If this is the case, a strong contender for ultimate...

    At least we won the Netball

    Diamonds by name, Diamonds by nature. What a credit to Australia our netball chicks are. When the going got tough in the far reaches of Outer Invercargill yesterday the Diamonds got going in a tense series decider. Each time the Silver Ferns came back into the game and threatened to overtake Australia they stepped up the pressure...

    3Ns G&GR Fantasy & Tipping Leagues Status

    It’s getting down to do or die in fantasy land with only a couple chances to jump in the standing left. And it’s still a pretty close race for the top. In yet another example of true game play not translating to fantasy (and vice versa), this weeks top scorer was none...

    Skinstad says Saffers, by Skinny margin

    It is not surprising that Bob Skinstad would be backing his broers, what was surprising however were some of the insights he gave as to why he thinks the Wallabies might be struggling. Over the years it seems that Bob has never been short of an opinion, but it is a considered...

    My 50th – Robbie Deans

    When a man turns 50, it is a time of reflection. It’s the sort of thing that gives an individual pause for thought. What is the higher meaning of life? How can the collective group that is mankind profit from one blokes endeavour? If there are no guarantees and nothing lasts forever...

    Wallabies vs Les Bleus preview

    What a change it is to finally get excited about an early season Wallabies test match! The French team have proved on successive weekends against the AB’s what an uncompromising unit they are, being unlucky not to beat the AB’s twice instead of once. Marc Lievremont has made seven changes to the...

    Preview: Lions to break through or bust

    What a shame that British & Irish Lions tours have been condensed and watered down to just a rump of what they should be. It used to be a four test full blown tour encompassing all the decent provincial sides and some lesser mid week opposition, with all home international players...

    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.
