    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...

    Video Analysis: The Kicking in Sydney

    In each Tri-Nations match so far the Wallabies have failed royally in at least in one major facet of the game, which has either released pressure on the opposition, or created it on themselves. In Auckland it was the scrum, in Cape Town it was the line-out. Last Saturday it was their...

    Wallaby player ratings: Sydney Bledisloe

    I finally subjected myself to the replay and here’s my stab at the player ratings. Tally with what you saw? Scoring system at the bottom. 1. Benn Robinson: Steady, but not spectacular. Has lost some edge in the loose. 5 2. Stephen Moore: Early head nock took it’s toll, but also a...

    A spoonful of Wallaby stew

    The Wallabies are battered, bruised and winless – not a great combination. With no wins from three attempts the Wallabies face the very real prospect of not winning a single game in this year’s Tri-Nations as they confront an uncompromising South Africa over the next two weeks and then travel to Wellington...

    Teams for Sydney Bledisloe

    Two talismen return to the Wallabies and All Black sides for Saturday’s clash in Sydney. For Australia, it’s the long awaited return of Rocky Elsom, back from his much celebrated stint in Europe and ensuing bruised bone (always painful). This return alone will be fascinating to watch. Will we see him dominate...

    Wallabies team for Newlands

    No shockers for the run on team this Saturday. The slight eyebrow raise comes from the bench where we go back to a 4-3 split. The gnarly Phil Waugh makes way for Marcia Hynes. Captions for shmoo opposite? Team below.

    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...
