    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...

    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...

    Analysis: Perthfontein, a blueprint for success?

    It’s taken me all week to summon the strength to re-watch The Clusterfµck of Perthfontein, and you know what, it wasn’t nearly as bad as I’d remembered. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that within it are hints that this Wallaby side could become as good as we hoped,...

    Video Highlights – Rocky in Ireland

    Here’s a short clip showing highlights of Rocky Elsom’s time with Leinster. _yPv0JkMcIU This shows why Rocky is the complete package and is in the form of his life. His pace, palm off, strength in the tackle, step, mongrel, big game temperament and ability to make anyone his bitch are truly world...

    Video highlights – Rocky’s return

    Everyone was awaiting his return – you, me, the media, the Irish – so how well did he go? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtQjA7IZb7E From about a kilometre away in the stands it wasn’t easy to tell, but stats and the clip below told a familiar story; even with one leg there’s no holding...

    Video Analysis: The Kicking in Sydney

    In each Tri-Nations match so far the Wallabies have failed royally in at least in one major facet of the game, which has either released pressure on the opposition, or created it on themselves. In Auckland it was the scrum, in Cape Town it was the line-out. Last Saturday it was their...

    Video: Great Wallaby Tries Recreated – Toutai Kefu v NZ (2001)

    With Noddy posting the real Kefu try, I thought it could be a good time to show a short movie that my wife and I made last year. It’s a recreation of Kefu’s effort and was our entry into a competition last year. We were hoping to win tickets to the Hong...

    Video: Niggle at Newlands

    A test against the Boks wouldn’t be the same with a bit of good old fashioned niggle, and in that regard, Newlands didn’t disappoint. Here are a few highlights. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72rtoriqKro Skidmark vs Big Cliffy Is there a man in world rugby more deserving of bitch-slapping than Skidmark You Puss-ey?

    Video: O’Connor vs Steyn

    Leading up to the Newlands test last weekend, Eddo started an interesting thread in the forum asking (among other things) “Which out of these two talented youngsters would you pick in your world XV?”,and “Who will turn out to be the better talent over the next 10 years?”. As they  both ended...

    Video analysis: Burgess vs Genia @ Newlands

    Following Auckland we had a look at the passing stats of the two Wallaby half backs, and by request we’ve repeated it for last weekend’s test in Cape Town. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZZMd8ebRSo As you can see in the table below,

    Video analysis: Lineouts at Newlands

    A lot’s been said about the Wallabies lack of discipline conspiring to lose the test at Newlands, but despite 3 yellow cards in one game, what I believe did more to self sabotage the Wallabies was their failure to maintain field position and pressure through a dismal line-out performance. Below you’ll see...

    What’s that? You’ll take the lineout? The Wallaby scrum is ….. DOMINATING???

    If there was one positive we Wallaby supporters can take from the weekend’s loss, it was the performance of our much maligned (by referees in particular) scrum.  Whilst the rest of our play was directionless, ill-disciplined and mistake-ridden, our scrum was class. They look so well drilled at the moment. You can...

    Preview: Wallabies vs Boks @ Newlands

    According to just about any pundit you can be arsed to listen to, this game is a foregone conclusion. The plucky young Wallabies are going to cause one or two moments of mild concern, but otherwise get swept aside by a near flawless, World Champion Springbok side who have beaten all comers...

    Yes, every tight head bind was the same, and no, it was never penalised. Armbands at Newlands? Thanks to Barbarian for the idea and Moses for a good slug of the legwork.
