Should the Wallabies have changed their team for Bledisloe 2?

14 hours ago

Life has been so busy lately that I’ve only been able to watch the first Bledisloe Cup match this afternoon. I knew the score and had managed to read some articles on The Roar and other sites over the last few days, so I had some preconceived notions of what to expect. The first thing […]

2014 Super Rugby final: Crusaders will spoil the party

31 Jul 2014

I haven’t had time this week to prepare any of my regular video analysis in advance of the 2014 Super Rugby final which I was looking forward to as there’s plenty to analyse. As I started writing this article my son rang me. I’m not a betting man but he likes an occasional punt for […]

3D Analysis: Henry Speight a key for Brumbies

17 Jul 2014

Henry Speight is in great form. He’s fast, strong and I’m really impressed by how well he manages to stay on his feet, even after he’s hit in a tackle. He’s also an excellent finisher. Matt Toomua may have got a hat-trick of tries against the Force last week, but Speight scored one try and […]

The Waratahs cannot win the Super Rugby title, unless...

15 Jul 2014

Captain Obvious will say that the Waratahs cannot win the Super Rugby title unless they win their next two matches. Others might say that they can’t win the title without Israel Folau, but while his unavailability through injury or any other reason would be a blow, it wouldn’t necessarily be the end of the ‘Tahs […]
