    Preview & teams: Shorks vs Tahs

    What a crunch match – whoever loses this one is pretty much fucked for the semis, so expect a do or die belting. The wheels have looked distincly wobbly on the Sharks season of late and the destabilisation has continued this week with a number of injuries and suspensions. Everyones fantasy 9...

    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……..

    Tahs vs Force – preview

    A fascinating clash is brewing on Saturday night and already the mind games (or are they brain farts?) have started. What we should have is a classic case of ‘rugby good’ vs ‘rugby evil’, just like the Wallabies vs England. In the ‘good’ corner is the Force. Full of speed and guile...

    Tahs vs Stormers preview & teams

    As the weeks roll on, it becomes increasingly foolish to tip against the Tahs. Love em or hate ’em, they’re showing a quality missing in the rest of the Aussie sides at the moment, and that’s the ability to win. I sense the tide of opinion may have turned a little, from...

    Another horror show?

    From an Aussie perspective, last weekend’s super 14 was an unmitigated disaster. The Brumbies gave the Lions their 4th ever S14 win and both the Force and Tahs lost at home. Even worse was the error strewn manner in which all three teams gave away their matches. So what about this week?...

    Tahs vs Saders preview

    This week has told you something about the Australian psyche. The Waratahs are literally coming first on the Super 14 ladder. And yet, from the bagging that they, and particularly the fly-half Kurtley Beale has been getting, you’d think they were coming ninth or tenth like the Force or Reds. I’m not...

    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 –...

    Wales vs Wallabies Player Ratings

    By Patrick Here are my thoughts on the Australia (& Wales!) player ratings from the test in Cardiff on Saturday. Probably not what you saw since I am being purely subjective but love to know where we differ! Rating scale at bottom.

    Australia vs Wales Teams

    Below are the teams for the Wales vs Wallabies match on Saturday in Cardiff. I like the look of the Aussie team because it says to me that Antipodeans is serious about a Euro clean sweep. The tell tale sign being the tight 5, where the experimenting has gone out the window...

  • England vs Pacific Islanders – Australian perspective

    Poms vs Wallabies – crunch day approaches. What does the run out England had against the Pacific Islanders last Saturday tell us about it though? The bad news (or good news if you’re a pom)It was a 5 try to 1 win for the men wearing soccer players kit. So any hopes...
