CAMPO: Has the ARU done the right thing with Quade?

CAMPO: Has the ARU done the right thing with Quade?

22 Nov 2012

Does anybody really know what Quade Cooper is doing? I believe he is leaving Australian rugby and will let everybody know on Monday. And if all the stories are right, who cut his salary and what did they expect Cooper to do? Or did they plan for Cooper to leave? Have the ARU learned anything […]

CAMPO: How much longer until Deans is gone?

CAMPO: How much longer until Deans is gone?

15 Nov 2012

We talk about it week-in, week-out, but it’s the same old problems for the Wallabies. There was no enthusiasm against the French, no skill, and no attack. Where to from here? I read some of the comments on The Roar that it was perhaps the Wallabies’ worse ever performance. I’m not sure about that, but […]

The recently departed John O’Neill needs to accept a significant responsibility for employing someone as the […]

CAMPO: What's happened to skills in Australian rugby?

25 Oct 2012

Some of you might find it ironic, but I actually tipped the Wallabies to beat the All Blacks in Brisbane last weekend. I sensed the Kiwis were vulnerable as they had achieved so much in the last couple of weeks and Australia had everything to play for. As it turned out, the game was of […]

CAMPO: Let’s look to the past to kickstart the future

CAMPO: Let's look to the past to kickstart the future

18 Oct 2012

So John O’Neill has finally stepped aside. I’m wondering why he didn’t he take the underperforming Robbie Deans with him. O’Neill, in my humble opinion, has effectively destroyed our rugby history and left us destitute. He seemed totally consumed with leaving his mark behind. And he sure did a great job of that. History will […]
