History will be made this weekend in the National Rugby Championship, when Concord Oval hosts the competition’s first ever double header.
We’ve hit the second bye week of the Rugby Championship, and the focus this week turns to the individuals to have really grabbed our attention during the 2016 tournament.
Like all good revolutions and re-inventions, the Wallabies at some point were always going to be forced into working out what their backrow would look like in the days beyond David Pocock.
There’s no doubt the 2016 National Rugby Championship shapes as the best yet. This weekend marks an important point in the season with only three rounds to follow.
Last weekend showed that the Wallabies can indeed win games of rugby and the Pumas can indeed challenge the All Blacks, albeit for a period not quite equalling eighty minutes.
Well, this is definitely the week. A Wallabies win after a year of losses just has to be a green light to dial up all manner of wild claims and predictions.
