So close and yet so far for the Wallabies

So close and yet so far for the Wallabies

3 days ago

Ignoring what happened after fulltime in the third Bledisloe Cup match between the Wallabies and All Blacks, it was a pretty good night for the Wallabies. They may have lost the match but they showed that they do have the potential to compete with the best team in the world. The All Blacks certainly weren’t […]

Forget losing his Wallaby jersey, Beale could be in real legal trouble

Kurtley Beale will face an independent code of conduct tribunal next week over ARU allegations he sent “highly inappropriate and deeply offensive text messages and images to a number of people”.

After the Wallabies loss to the Springboks on the weekend, let’s examine what constitutes a good outcome – should it be judged on wins and losses, or how the team plays? You can’t ignore the wins and losses column but I focus more on how the team plays. While the Wallabies won their last two Tests, […]

New NRC crowd record at Ballymore as Quade Cooper returns

New NRC crowd record at Ballymore as Quade Cooper returns

29 Sep 2014

In a positive sign for the NRC, Brisbane City have defeated Queensland Country 29-13 in front of a very strong crowd at Ballymore. The count hadn’t been finalised when I filed this story but it was already over five thousand and I won’t be surprised if the final figure is between six and seven thousand. The Queensland Rugby […]
