    Reds v Chiefs preview

    The good news this week that Big Kev Horwill and Van Humphries are returning to the Reds’ team has been tempered with the really shit news that Peter Hynes has been ruled out with a knee problem. This late change gives newcomer Rodney Davies the task of making Lelia Masaga, not an...

    Australian Super 14 Team of week 5

    1. Benn Robinson (Tahs) – Has gotten the better of his opposite numbers two weeks in a row and shown that he is the number one, no. 1 in the country. More often than not he was scrumming against two opponents, as George Smith would slide up along side the under pressure...

    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.

    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...

    Wallaby team vs All Blacks in Honkers & preview

    With all the leaking that happened this week in Hong Kong it wasn’t really a surprise when the Australian Bledisoe team sheet hit. A few thoughts on it: Some call it a “get Carter” ploy, but I reckon Mortlock at 12 is more of a necessity. Barnes’ kicking game is going to...
