    Video: Robbie’s back row experiment

    I believe Australia’s first choice back row is the most classically ‘balanced’  in world rugby. You have the ultimate scavenging of Smith, defence, line-out and pace of Rocky mixed in with the unstoppable force that is Palu. On top of this, at least two of these players – Smith and Elsom –...

    Wallabies Grand Slam Tour confirmed

    The last time we did it was in 1984, so a mere 25 years later we’re back for another crack. The negotiations involved bribing the Fijians with a test in Australia next year, but it’s on. G&GR will be aiming to bring you some unique coverage of the historic tour, so stay...

    Video: Wallabies vs BaaBaas

    Here’s an alternative version of the highlights from the weekend. All in all I thought it was a great start. Yes, the BaaBaas were knackered, but as Phil Waugh said afterwards,

    Video: SBW vs the Wallabies

    Following all the media hype, I was shocked to see that there was anyone else other than Sonny Boy Williams playing for the Baabaas on Saturday. Anyway, I managed to edit most of those other guys out and here’s the result: How’d he do? Along with the rest of the BaaBaas,

    Video: Rocky takes down Leicester

    I have a confession to make. Months ago, when the initial Elsom release dramas were ongoing, I was of the opinion that while Rocky was the form 6 in the world, and his play would no doubt benefit from a move, that his career would probably suffer from it. I thought there...

    Ask Bakkies; drongo won’t take the hint

    Dear Bakkies, I’m a rugby television producer in the Auckland office of a global satellite network. One of my key responsibilities is the commentator ‘talent’. And that’s my problem. Sure, TJ and Nisbo aren’t exactly rocket scientists, but at least their stupidity isn’t to such a level that it’s caused international incidents....

    Video analysis: Tahs pigs take the Sharks

    While the Tahs backline might spluttered this year, there’s no denying that the pack has been on fire. Again on Saturday, in the pissing rain, they manned up and put in some superhuman performances to win the game. In the clips below, I’ve dug out a few examples of crucial (or as...

    Video analysis: Tahs forgotten men

    At the beginning of the year those of us without a complex about the Tahs were all a-quiver about what their backline might do. Since that point it’s an understatement to say that fans and detractors alike have been underwhelmed. Key names in the firing line have included Beale, Tahu and Burgess,...
