Is Joe Burns burnt?

In the 1993 film Groundhog Day Bill Murray became trapped in a time loop and was forced to relive the same day over and over again. In 2020 the Australian national team is persisting with the faltering Joe Burns in an equally painful experience.

great article nb. so if you become waratahs coach in the near future, which players would you recruit?

Coach’s Corner Issue 6: Penney for your thoughts?

Valentini developing an attacking game whilst playing in a gold jersey…may be a sign of things to come 👍

Why the Brumbies still have reason to smile after their defeat in Canberra

I feel a lot of Australia’s cricketing success has come in spite of the selectors rattan because of them. DC should be a lock. MH good too. What about silk and wells? Ollie Davies too green Ronan? Can OD play spin?

Also, why not give sanga a bowl
In NZ?!!!

Stoinis had his chance for Australia, now it's time for Christian and Henriques in T20s

Although you also like hosea

Coach's Corner issue 2: What hope for the Waratahs?

Great article Nick. So you’ve sorted most of wallabies forwards selection- CN, Uelese, Mcreight, Wilson, valetini. I guess from your previous articles LSL and NW (captain). I’m waiting for your next articles on props and back lines

Coach's Corner issue 2: What hope for the Waratahs?

Haha. Sorry nick

Battle of the blindside enforcers: Why the power lies in Canberra

Follow-up question: how do the Brums squeeze 3 quality 9’s into 1? Scrum half is arguably the least transferable position but they’re deploying IF on the wing as he’s too good to leave out!

Great article Rob. I do wonder with players like LS whose main currency is aggression, what happens when they turn up without that 100% rage. Their output diminishes badly. I put them in the same category as death metal singers.

thx JB. What would you propose? what about a national club comp like the FFA model. we could have the best club teams from across australia? would that be a start?

Yeah I’m interested in tanveer sangha too. I think he’ll feature at the T20WC

Australia's death bowling being tested by Kiwis

Great article Ronan- you are the best cricket writer. I think we would have won the one day World Cup if JR was fit. Would you still persist with him and Sams and see how they progress before the T20WC?

Thx K n C. I love my green machine and Brums equally. It was hard work trying to buy a raiders jersey this season unless you were a XXXL.

My plan to resuscitate rugby

Well said BF. Let’s give him some time. I’m just a little impatient as I worry the start of the season is critical time for the game but I’ll try to be more patient

My plan to resuscitate rugby

Love it BF. The stripping down of pre and post fan engagement is appalling. Like a thief in the night it seemed to vanish over the years. Bring it back! Bring it all back!

My plan to resuscitate rugby

Thx johl. It achieves money which is surely what we really need. Sooner or later the L’s will turn to W’s. This century or the next

In the same way that our domestic victors taken on the best from NZ, could Japan send their best domestic team to partake?

My plan to resuscitate rugby

Thx Jacko. I’ll def be watching! Australia is getting a bad reputation in cricket for not being a good global citizen….lets be inclusive of PI rugby!

My plan to resuscitate rugby

thx Monorchid, I get my rugby news from the Roar too. Agree Ballymore isnt the panacea but that sort of ground capacity is what i think would work. I also like that it has a hill. Maybe ACT does Manuka and Waratahs do Concord, Coogee or Manly stadium?

My plan to resuscitate rugby

Yes totally agree don. I actually love Ian smith as a commentator in NZ

My plan to resuscitate rugby

palliation?

My plan to resuscitate rugby

thx Steven. Yeah NSW needs a good year but that’s out of our control. We can only control the controllables, like making recommendations from the fanbase about what may work. I understand most of the ideas are me shouting into the void but what’s the alternative?

My plan to resuscitate rugby

I dont think it has to be an ex Wallaby coach. He certainly wouldnt have been my choice. His immediate recognisability doesn’t justify the pay cheque.
Commentary is about communication. Judging from the way Cheika communicated with the media, he would seem a poor choice. However he gained a reputation as a motivator so let’s tap that well. Do we get the Roar to host a commentary competition and propose a champion?

My plan to resuscitate rugby

thx Waxhead. very generous.

😂

thx Don. Judging be the feedback here, perhaps he wont be a long lasting fixture. Who would you replace him with? Alan Jones? 😂
