In front of a paltry crowd of only 14,281 the Wallabies held on to beat the Pumas on Saturday night.

Despite a terrible performance from the Wallabies against the All Blacks in Auckland in their last match, Ewen McKenzie has decided to stick with the same starting forward pack this week, apart from a change forced by injury. The changes to the team largely come in the back line with both Nic White and Kurtley […]

The All Blacks played really well to humble the Wallabies in Bledisloe 2 on the weekend. Despite some hoping they may be coming back to the field, they showed they are still clearly the number one team in the world. I said last week that I was concerned that they never seem to play two […]
