    S14 stat attack: Aussie players (2010)

    About 12 months ago the esteemed Juan Cote put together a few stats from the 2009 Super 14.  Great idea I reckon. So I stole it.  Now the first Wallaby squad of has been named as of yesterday. As with any team announcement there are always surprise selections and omissions. So this...

    State of unOriginal

    Ok ok. It’s that time of the year when the talk turns to Origin again. Nah, I don’t mean the Slater, Inglis, Lockyer, Hayne, Kimmorley and co. Sure that State of Origin series is on, but it just happens to coincide with the call for a State of Origin in Rugby Union...

    Why why why Wycliff?

    Great timing Mr Palu. The day after he re-signs with the ARU he gets injured and is out for the year. If he’d held off his discussions until after this game, the bye week, his negotiating ability, and thus bargaining power, with some of those overseas clubs might not have been as...

    Video: G&GR Super 14 Round 6 Review

    Oh come on. Do I have to? REALLY? Sharpie wasn’t the only one swearing in frustration after that round. The Waratahs can count themselves lucky that they were playing the bottom ranked team, otherwise they could have joined the ranks of the Force and Brumbies in a winless round. As it was...

    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...

    Trials: Trick or Treat?

    It only seems like yesterday that we were wiping the sleep from our eyes, cranking up the laptops and watching the G&GR live blog from Kingsholme as the Dirties took on Glos? And isn’t it still summer? Didn’t Punter and the boys clean up the Pakis earlier this week? Well bugger me, its footy...
