    Born Free (to play wherever).

    With the Melbourne Rebels now in the player market place, not too long after the WA Force entered, a subset issue is now a subject of hot discussion.  Who can lay claim to the player.  It is a common cry out of NSWRU and the Sydney club land that they created the...

    Super 14 Fantasy Comp – Round 2

    Cracker of a week to say the least.  Big game scores usually means big fantasy scores and this week didn’t disappoint.  I felt pretty good with almost 400 points this week (20 more than last week) and I lost ground!  If you didn’t clear 450 points you pretty much did the same...

    Video: G&GR Super 14 Round 2 Review

    And so we look back on week 2 with mixed views. The Reds won, and won well, which everyone seems pretty pleased about. The Brumbies, Force and Tahs all lost on the road which shouldn’t really be a surprise should it? Perhaps we expected more from the all-star Brumbies, but they were...

    Video: G&GR Super 14 Round 1 Review

    Every week during the Super 14 season G&GR will take a look at the key plays and players of the week just had. We can be a myopic lot here at G&GR sometimes, so no point stopping now. Let’s make it clear. Our focus is the Wallabies, so these reviews will focus...

    G&GR Wallaby Tries of the Decade #5

    Coming up with a list of the top tries of the decade was a tough one. What makes one try stand out from another? Is it individual brilliance we are gauging it on, or is it whole of team involvement? Rehearsed tries from a set piece or instinctive brilliance? Does a try...

    In a combined statement released by the ARU and QRU, Quade Cooper has been ordered to undergo an extensive personal development and counselling program before he will be considered for future selection by the Queensland Reds and Wallabies. And subsequent to his court case being resolved sometime next year, a Code of...

    The winner: G&GR Wallaby Player of the Year

    What a tremendous end to the season, both for the Wallabies and for this competition. Those who have been following the points tally may well be aware that the competition came down to the very last test against Wales. As a reminder, after every test of the season Green and Gold Rugby...

    Video Analysis: Attack v Wales

    What a difference a week makes! Against Scotland the Wallabies were running across field and throwing cut out passes to try and get around the defence.  Against Wales the attack was much more direct and effective. The really good thing about the attack this week was players working hard off the ball...

    Wallabies vs Scotland – Bland Sham

    I’ve written this post straight after the game while the pain is still raw and untempered, and I’m trying to work out if that’s the worst I’ve seen the Wallabies play. I suspect it is. We’ll post a more balanced review later. That we still had a chance to win with the...

    2009 Wallabies Spring Tour – the form guide

    With the spring racing carnival in full swing in Australia, and the spring Wallaby tour about to commence, I thought I would try and combine the two. It is surprising how transferable some of the descriptions from an equine form guide can be translated to our Wallaby runners. Below is my appraisal...

    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...
