    Oz Super 14 coaches: a force multiplier?

    In military parlance, a force multiplier is an asset that increases your ability to succeed in the violence of the battlefield. Transposed to rugby it is the people, strategies, innovation and organisation that you can bring to your franchise to enhance success. And one of the major force multipliers in any season...

    Phil Mooney’s guide to BBQ-ing

    Many months ago, before the interstate game between the Reds and the Tahs, Lote Tuqiri was at pains to point out the merits of the Tahs ‘win ugly’ style. In response to a barb from the Reds’ Quade Cooper about the lack of enterprise in the Tahs play, Lote returned serve with...

    Reds vs Canes preview

    It’s not often that the Waratahs would hope the Reds have a win, but tonight will be one of those nights. A win by the Reds would go along way to securing the Tahs a finals spot, so long as a few other results drop as well. There has been a pretty...

    Queensland Reds – that’s life

    Frank Sinatra once sang “you’re riding high in April, shot down in May” – I’m not sure, but I think I heard Phil Mooney humming the same tune at the end of last night’s game against the Brumbies. Sure, the Reds might not have been exactly riding high last week, but after...

    Reds vs Blues preview

    This game represents the master versus the apprentice. Watching the Reds oscillate from famine to feast then back again by playing their particular style of ‘attacking’ rugby, one can’t help but think they are trying to model their game on a team similar to the Blues. What the Reds lack spectacularly is...

    Hung, Drawn and QuateRED

    The latest Reds’ promotional campaign features inspiring words with ‘RED’ highlighted, such as ‘HonouRED” “FeaRED” and “InspiRED”, under photos of players who have menacing, determined looks on their faces. I am calling for a Jihad on these posters and wherever someone sees one, they should change the words to ones like, “ButcheRED”,...
