    Australia vs Japan: Results, review and stats

    Wallabies 91Cherryblossoms 3 As the scoreline suggests, this was your classic World Cup mismatch of the type that Campo has been campaigning against of late. That aside, the Wallabies produced a composed performance, for the most part devoid of the ‘rustiness’ excuse that usually dogs them in world cup pool games, and...

    Tri-Nations Rugby: Australia vs South Africa Preview

    WITH the Springboks bringing only two of the side that played the All Blacks, it’s a thankless task for the Wallabies. The only win in the public’s eye will be a points land-slide to the Aussies, which will be no mean feat. So what can we expect? There aren’t a stack of...
