  • Referees for Wallabies Euro Tour

    (Most) refs are people and therefore never perfect. Also, the better you play, the less their performance matters.

    Reds vs Force Super 14: Video highlights and review

    Reds 29 – Force 12.Despite sleeping on it to try and come up with some inspiration, I can’t find any glowing words about this Reds performance – unlike their showing away at the Bulls. Defense held firm, but otherwise this match was more about what the Force couldn’t do, than what the...

    How many games of rugby have you watched or played? I bet enough that you could have had a guess at the outcome of simply converting some full-penalties to free kicks. The beauty of sport however, and especially what some would call an over-complicated sport like rugby union, is that it has...

    Classy Barbars 22World Chump B team 5 So many times an all star Barbarian team has disappointed through poor defence and lateral attack, but not today. Almost to a man the Barbars played their hearts out and showed this Springbok team to be out of ideas. The first half was a cracker,...

    French dicked Argentina 34 France 10For those of us who thought this game would be a damp squibb – wrong. Both sides turned up ready to rumble, as evidenced by the constant niggle and sniping throughout. But what this game made clear to me, more than any other, was what has gone...
