Four starting changes and the longest Wallabies bench ever

Four starting changes and the longest Wallabies bench ever

1 day ago

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika hasn’t quite gone as far as I thought – or as far as I hoped, on Tuesday – but I do like that he’s gone some way to shaking the side up ahead of their Test against Ireland in Dublin, in the early hours of Sunday morning, AEDT. Cheika has made […]

If we’re all honest, we’ll admit that we do allow ourselves to get a bit giddy at the prospects of how a team might perform under a new coach. More often than not, bars are set unreachably high and stylistic expectations are well removed from reality. However, this time around, post-McKenzie and into the Cheika […]

NRC report card: The thumbs up-thumbs down review

The National Rugby Championship has been run and won. Now, the nervous wait begins to see if the competition will return in 2015. This time seven years ago, John O’Neill read the Australian Rugby Championship its last rights, after it shelled more than $4.5 million in its first year. Anecdotally, I’ve heard that the NRC […]
