Three down, three to go. We’re on the home straight of The Roar’s Sports Awards 2016, and it’s once again up to you to decide who finishes the year a winner.
The 2016 season finished like it started for the Wallabies. With a loss to England.
They say that the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing repeatedly while expecting different results. While the result of Saturday’s match against England will not make Michael Cheika a head-case, it should provoke some serious scratching of the cranium.

I must admit sitting in front of my PC attempting to write something about South African rugby feels like going to confession.
By all measures, Australian rugby has had a rather disappointing year. This has been book-ended by a series whitewash at the start and twin losses at the end.
“It is particularly incumbent on those who never change their opinion, to be secure of judging properly at first.”
Here’s proof that a rugby scrum is also useful in an emergency.
After a year to forget for the Wallabies. Played 15, won six and lost nine including four straight loses to England – it would be easy to kick a team while they’re down.
The convincing win against the Wallabies at the weekend has left it very black and white who the best two rugby teams in the world are.

We have heard many times how coaches talk about a ‘horses for courses’ team – a team picked based on certain unique challenges and objectives.
The last week before European competition kicks in again saw some big results.
It has been very much a mixed bag for the Wallabies this year, with a slow start, injuries and an unsettled line up for much of the year resulting in six wins from 15 starts. In the battle of the fly-halves, Bernard Foley is three wins from ten starts.
While contemplating the Wallabies’ spring tour it occurred to me how poor the Wallabies have become.
England has defeated Australia by a comfortable margin at Twickenham by 37 points to 21, the hosts outscoring the visitors by four tries to two in a hotly contested match.

For Olympic 200m swimmers it’s the third lap that counts, the gut busting push back up the pool before pure adrenaline commandeers the body for the final sprint home. For 400m runners it’s on the final bend where the race is invariably won or lost.

Much has been made in Europe of the so-called closing of the gap between the northern and southern hemisphere rugby teams – but there’s more to this story than the Europeans would have us believe.
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. This is the Test we’ve all been waiting for: will that cheek-faced gremlin Eddie Jones forever thwart poor blunt-spoken Michael Cheika?

It pays to know all the rugby laws in case the unexpected happens, like this rare moment in the National 1 competition in England.
