    Wallaby Team if selected on this weeks form

    15 Mark Gerrard (ACT) – Gerrard must think he has a better chance at socceroo selection this year with some great skills controlling the oval ball. Scored a chip and chase with 4 extra fly-hacks to spark the brumbies back into the game. He then went on to nail a drop goal...

    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...

    Video – Tyrone takes on the Sharks

    Juan’s stats post showed George’s younger brother to have by far the highest line break rate at a whopping 17% of all his runs. These few clips from last Saturday’s loss to the Shorks brings those numbers to life. With feet like these, can he really be kept out of the Wallabies...

    The Burgwan is back

    He only played the first half due to a corked thigh, but great news for the Tahs and Wallabies rugby is that Luke Burgess seems to be hitting form again. It’s pretty fitting as it was against the Blues last year that the Burgwan first took his chance for stardom by turning...

    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...

    Juan’s Wallabies

    We are approximately a quarter of the way through the competition so it is timely to give Robbie Deans a hand and let him know what a Wallaby 22 would look like, based on this seasons’ form, if the Wallabies were playing a test match next week. 1. Benn Robinson (Tahs) –...

    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 –...

    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...
