    Mark Bart down for general duties

    The Western Force have named their team for Friday’s match-up with the Brumbies and as flagged earlier in the week, Mark Bartholomeusz is the new black. He was recruited by the Force as a utility to provide backup at fullback and for Andre Pretorius at flyhalf – that he’s now the first choice...

    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...

    My 50th – Robbie Deans

    When a man turns 50, it is a time of reflection. It’s the sort of thing that gives an individual pause for thought. What is the higher meaning of life? How can the collective group that is mankind profit from one blokes endeavour? If there are no guarantees and nothing lasts forever...

    Where to for Robbie?

    If there was one picture from Saturday night that said it all, it was the shot of AntipoDeans in the stand. We’ve become used to Dingo and Jimbo gesticulating and swearing at the ref/latest player brainfart. But this was different. As the Wobblies slumped to their sixth straight Tri-nations loss, you could...

    Video highlights – Rocky’s return

    Everyone was awaiting his return – you, me, the media, the Irish – so how well did he go? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtQjA7IZb7E From about a kilometre away in the stands it wasn’t easy to tell, but stats and the clip below told a familiar story; even with one leg there’s no holding...

    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...

    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...
