    Bulls vs Waratahs review & score

    Bulls 16 – Waratahs 13 The summary of this game is pretty easy. It pissed down rain, the Waratahs got kicked around the park by the Bulls 10 Hougaard, and on top of that the Tahs lineout went to shit. Not a recipe for an entertaining match, and not a good sign...

  • Palu bitch-slaps Venter & Co. for a try – video

    I mentioned that it made me chuckle at the time, but here’s big Cliffy’s first try from last weekend which followed an awesome tackle on one of the harder nuts of Saffa rugby – AJ Venter. No prize for guessing the two words that went through Ndungane’s mind as he saw the...

    Waratahs vs Lions Super 14 score, review, player ratings

    Waratahs 26 – Lions 3 Ok, let’s forget the first half because it really isn’t worth remembering. The sides went in at nil all, the Tahs having committed 15 handling errors, often killing off promising attacking movements. But in a torrential downpour, it was many of the younger players – some surely...

    Some very big ups (Waratahs and Force) and some very low downs (Brumbies and Reds) in round 8 of the 2008 Super 14. Both the Force and the Tahs got exactly what they needed. The Western Australians needed to show that they could dig deep to win against tough opposition at home,...

    Waratahs 37 – Blues 16 There were 40 foot high billboards saying “SEASON TURNING POINT” on this game for the Tahs and they stood up just when it mattered.

    Waratahs vs Cheetahs Super 14 2008 score

    Waratahs 23 – Cheetahs 19Cut down to 10 minutes of highlights, this game didn’t look too bad. The Tahs backrow seemingly put in an unbelievable performance, with try making intercepts (Waugh), blind offloads (Palu) and try scoring bursts (man of the match Elsom). Read any report though, and the other 70 minutes...
