    Rocky’s sterling effort

    Rocky Elsom has been named Wallaby captain for the upcoming Northern Hemisphere tour beginning later this month. He has taken over from Stirling Mortlock who was also named in the side. Berrick Barnes is the Vice- Captain. This will no doubt increase speculation that Mortlock’s Wallaby career may be coming to a...

    Rookies aplenty in Wallaby Training Squad

    Robbie Deans, and his selectors, have named a number of new faces in the 43 man Wallaby training squad in preparation for the Grand Slam tour later this year.  Perhaps the most notable rookie is scrumhalf Richard Kingi of the Queensland Reds who only last week signed an Academy contract with the...

    Wobblies woefull in Wellington

    So far this season the Wallabies have let themselves down in just one, sometimes two facets of the game. Tonight, they fucked every single one. The scrum, lineout, breakdown, kicking, discipline, running, passing; all sucked. It was only an average defensive performance that kept them anywhere near the match. The heroics in...

    Wallabies unchanged for Wellington

    It’s the same Wallaby team that did the Boks in Brisbane (see below) – the question being whether they can play with the same intensity. TPN and Lakky are reputed to have gotten over their rib injuries, but to cover Turner just in case, Kurtley Beale has also been flown out as...

    Player ratings: Wallabies vs Boks Brisvegas

    The most important thing out of this match was the pure, undiluted class A confidence that the Wallabies scored. A very solid scoreline, and this was squandering a load of points. Here are my payer ratings, tally with what you saw? Scoring system at the bottom. 1. Benn Robinson: Another scrum dominated,...

    Analysis: Perthfontein, a blueprint for success?

    It’s taken me all week to summon the strength to re-watch The Clusterfµck of Perthfontein, and you know what, it wasn’t nearly as bad as I’d remembered. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that within it are hints that this Wallaby side could become as good as we hoped,...

    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?...
