    Wallaby Watch – Open Side Flanker

    The incumbent(s): Phil Waugh (NSW): The Waratah skipper has been criticised by many this season, albeit mostly by non-Tah fans. It’s fair to say he looked off the pace and incapable of really stamping his authority on a game. This has changed lately, perhaps it’s the contract talks, and he’s starting to...

    Wallaby Watch – Number 8!

    The incumbent(s): Richard Brown (WA): For a player that looks so made for test footy, it’s easy to forget he only made his debut in the last domestic test of last year. Brown has carried over his sterling 2008 form into 2009 and is one of the most important players for the...

    Tahs vs Force – preview

    A fascinating clash is brewing on Saturday night and already the mind games (or are they brain farts?) have started. What we should have is a classic case of ‘rugby good’ vs ‘rugby evil’, just like the Wallabies vs England. In the ‘good’ corner is the Force. Full of speed and guile...

    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. Forwards: Ben Alexander – good first steps but more time scrummaging required. Is he going to finally start for the Brumbies?? 6 Alastair Baxter –...

    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...
