    2011 Super Rugby NSW Waratahs Player of the Year

    The NSW Waratahs managed to make the finals of Super Rugby again, but with the form they showed in their first two and last two games of the regular season, 2011 will go down as another season of lost opportunity. Let’s not forget they gave the 2011 Super Rugby Champions an almighty...

    Super Rugby Round Two Review

    Round Two of Super Rugby, 2011-style, saw two more local derbies for the Aussie teams. The first was an emotional last-minute win by the Rebels over the Brumbies, while the second was a clinical takedown of the Reds by the increasingly impressive Waratahs.

    Wallabies named. Deans pleads insanity

    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...

    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: Tatafu Polota-Nau and David Pocock

    Everyone’s been wanging on about how much impact the youth of this Australian team made in the impressive win over South Africa on Saturday. Below are a few clips of two guys who I believed were at the centre of that impact: TPN and Bam Bam, aged 24 and 21 respectively. [youtube...
