    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. The Italians have made plenty of changes to their team which makes them even harder to comment on, such is the unknown nature of the...

    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...

    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...

    Wallaby Watch – Scrumhalf

        The incumbent(s): Luke Burgess (NSW): Nice timing. He’s just been benched by the Tahs. I don’t know if it’s intended to be a wake up call for him. Or he’s being rested. Or he’s bearing the brunt of backlash surrounding the backline not…ummm…b..b..b..being good?. From my perspective he, along with...

    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...
