    GREEN AND GOLD RUGBY EXCLUSIVE It’s been 25 years since we last had a crack at a Grand Slam (why?) and won it. So can Australia do it again with the current Wallabies mob? G&GR talked to a number of Aussie rugby experts, and here’s what they came up with: Lote Tuqiri...

    Where does Giteau go?

    It’s taken two domestic seasons to do it, but through the unveiling of the squad to go to Europe this spring, together with a revolutionary new leadership team of Rocky Elsom and Berrick “sookface” Barnes, Robbie Deans has well and truly put his stamp on the Wallabies. However, if silly season press...

    G&GR 3Ns Fantasy & Tipping – The Champs

    Saturday’s disappointment in Wellington signaled the close of the 2009 Tri-Nations, and brought about the close of our fantasy and tipping comps. The numbers are in, the results have been tallied, so let’s take a look! Everyone pretty much bombed this week in the fantasy comp. The scores were much lower than...

    At least we won the Netball

    Diamonds by name, Diamonds by nature. What a credit to Australia our netball chicks are. When the going got tough in the far reaches of Outer Invercargill yesterday the Diamonds got going in a tense series decider. Each time the Silver Ferns came back into the game and threatened to overtake Australia they stepped up the pressure...

    Wobblies woefull in Wellington

    So far this season the Wallabies have let themselves down in just one, sometimes two facets of the game. Tonight, they fucked every single one. The scrum, lineout, breakdown, kicking, discipline, running, passing; all sucked. It was only an average defensive performance that kept them anywhere near the match. The heroics in...

    Wallabies vs All Blacks – Bledisloe 3 preview

    Much has been made of the Wallabies ‘new dawn’ since beating the Bokkies two weeks ago. It is hard to believe the week before that they were being written off as ‘second raters’ who were not up to the test of international rugby. An objective observation leads to the conclusion the Wallabies...

    All Blacks v Springboks: the final countdown

    The big question on everyone’s lips in the crunch Tri-Nation’s test in Hamilton on Saturday is whether South Africa will revert to type by employing their successful aerial game last seen in Capetown a couple of tests ago. This successful strategy which contributed mightily to them winning their three home tests is...

    Analysis: “And now, repeat”

    As we all calm down from the weekend, the big questions have become; a) how the hell did we do it, and b) can we do it again? Looking at both the head to head and series stats for the game (at the bottom of the post), there is only one for...
