Very excited about this weekends matches coming up, certainly no real done deals in either game.

Anyhow, GO BLACK!

Rugby World Cup quarter-finals expert tips: End the desperation

Really nice Harry, you have my support! 🏉 😁

You are not required to back the Blossoms. The Boks are brave, too

Thanks Brett.

Cracking set of QFs to come this weekend, really excited.

Come on Wallabies!

Just their best performance of 2019: the Wallabies' simple quarter-final assignment

Thanks for your efforts Nick, much appreciated.

How do you see Wales in this tournament? I would worry that if they were trailing that their attack may not be able to get them back into a match?

Why selection cost the Wallabies their Rugby World Cup game against Wales

Tend to agree Corne, the Wallabies were going forward easily enough at times but the support play and ruck work left a lot to be desired. Over coached perhaps in terms of their attacking play? I do not know but a bit more attention with possession and I thought they could have had the game.

I would say your glass is 80% empty Fionn 😛

But I do agree, alternative’s have been available and it is confusing why they have not been trialled.

Most would I suspect.

The Wrap: World Cup thrown into beautiful, glorious confusion

Well, obviously I cannot comment on your experiences but it is certainly not the case amongst most that I know living in Oz, but granted, there are some who take an unhealthy interest in the sport.

The Wrap: World Cup thrown into beautiful, glorious confusion

Rather general statement no? In terms of ‘personal insults’ it would only be Kearns that catches some shade here and perhaps could have been worded better but in comparison to Gloria, Geoff is using his real name behind his words.

He also had a quick word for a Kiwi in Schmidt in there, hardly all an all Australian kicking? And the lazy journalism statement is across the board, not just the Australian contingent.

I cant find a lot wrong with what he has written today, what is it that stirs you up about his Cheika or Gallen assessments?

‘What would Kiwis think and write about if they didn’t have Australia to kick’

Rugby itself bigbaz. Might surprise you but ‘kicking Australian rugby’ is not the sport some would make it out to be over here.

The Wrap: World Cup thrown into beautiful, glorious confusion

Perhaps you should stop reading Geoff’s articles if it upsets you so much Gloria.

Or maybe discuss the content of his articles without resorting to personal insults.

Wonderful read Geoff, thank you.

Week 1 World Cup reflections: O roku biiru kudusai

I had four of those in my top 5, Jones at 8. 👍

I’m happy with that. 🏉

Geez, it took long enough for that to pop up.

As mentioned, I shuffled that list constantly.

Dunno Colm, certainly Ryan is rated around my parts anyhow. Top class.

Hey Nobody,

It was a lot of fun to go back and reminisce, certainly easy enough to come up with names, would have been simple enough to do 100 I think, but ordering them I found extremely difficult to do, still not comfortable with my final order but, just ran out of time 😛

Ha! RobC I think already mentioned the lack of said area representation, or too many Tahs or some such 😁

I have my mouthguard in and ready to duck 😂

Rugby World Cup tipping Week 1: unprepared

Have to admit, been called and accused of many things but those that philia and phobia is a definite first for me, never been defrocked either.

A day of firsts! 😛

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 5-1

Thanks Nick, excellent. 🏉

You forgot good looking also China’s, rather important that, otherwise more or less though my throwing was never the issue 😁

The Roar’s 50 greatest players in Rugby World Cup history: 10-6

Brilliant as always Nick.

Personally, I don’t think enough sides utilise pick and go with modern defences and are too ready to try to spread in the face of set defences. I believe a little more basic play can really cause some unrest.

Good times ahead, looking forward to it.

How will the Wallabies unravel Warren Gatland’s Welsh web?
