I hope he doesn’t stiffle him, 😱 but he still may stifle him 👎

It’s a big Super Rugby season ahead for…

Campbell Magnay was average in his 26 game 4 year stint in Super Rugby.Hopefully he has turned it around in his 5th year.

As a Qld Red tragic, i`ll add Brad Thorn into the mix. He needs to up his coaching game and must definitely make the top 6 or it will get ugly for him.

Still only 25.? Maybe he will play for a Super Rugby franchise in 2021 ?

Sean McMahon to make Australian rugby return

” Despite horrible results through 2017 and 2018, Georgina Robinson only started to report anything being critical of Michael Cheika a few months into this year and once the writing was on the wall that he wasn’t going to be there post 2019. ”

Exactly.

The rugby media need to be careful not to kill the game they rely on

Yes it`s finally over.Praise the lord.

Rugby AU and Israel Folau settle legal dispute

Yep he has to make the finals or it`s a fail for me too. Top 6 is a must for Thorn in 2020.

900k a year. I hope not.

Agree Fionn .The Rebels tight five cost the Rebels a finals spot. They just fell away towards the end. Even when they were on fire early on in the season they sometimes were smashed and bullied. Genia and QC kept them in the contest with their superior skills. In the end it was to much to ask the two of them with their tight getting bulldozed .

Huge off-season for Australian No.10s – unless you’re in NSW

The thing with the Melbourne Storm is this player drain will not hurt them. They are so smart and professional. They are the best run league club in oz imo. I wish my Reds were run and recruited as well as them.

I don`t like to be negative on signing a good player to my club, but do the Reds need another finisher? We need to develop our tens imo. Did he play 10 or 12 in his junior days, that would be handy ?

I hope someone else jumps up and takes that Wallaby 10 jersey. I do not want Toomua at 10. If he is the best performed 10 in Super Rugby in 2020 i spose Rennie has no other choice but to pick him. Someone else please stand up. I`m looking at possibly Issac Lucas. But will Thorn play him at 10 or will he play musical chairs with Stewart Hegarty and Lucas?

In 2019 my biggest lowlight was the Wallabies limp exit from the Rugby World Cup but at the same time my favourite highlight was the South Africans winning it. I spent 4 weeks in July in South Africa and met so many wonderful people who were Rugby fanatics. I now have many new Saffer Okies. We had some Lekkerrrrr times. The Boets are still swilling their Brandy and Cokes as we speak. Here is hoping the Wallabies go ok in 2020, but my expectations are low.

” We have Will and Mack there who are up-and-coming and we have KB that can fill a hole there,” Penney said.
But can Beale fill that hole ?. He has proven he cannot.

Beale set for five-eighth spot at Waratahs

Don the Reds have some good young talented backrowers to chose from in 2020.Looking forward to seeing how they go. I`m assuming LSL Rodda and Hockings are the 3 locks. 4 Lock being Angus Blyth as injury/form backup.

Backrowers.

Liam Wright Age 22, Weight 98kg, Height 193cm
Angus Scott-Young Age 22, Weight 108kg, Height 194cm
Harry Wilson Age 20, Weight 106kg, Height 195cm
Michael Wood Age 20, Weight 108kg, Height 192cm
Sean Farrell Age 21, Weight 109kg, Height 187cm
Fraser McReight Age 20, Weight 100kg, Height 184cm
Tom Kibble Age 19, Weight 99kg, Height 184cm
Seru Uru Age 22, Weight 104kg, Height 197cm

Why the Giteau Law has to be fit for purpose in 2020

The best Wallaby 10 is in Higashiosaka, Osaka, Japan.

Karmichael Hunt re-signs with Waratahs

Agreed Fionn but why cant Rennie bring back QC ( Gitaeu rule). ? He is more accomplished as a test 10 than Toomua.Lucas will be good,but not yet.( off the bench perhaps) He is the best of the Lucas clan by far imo.

Matt Toomua puts his hand up for the Wallabies no. 10 jersey

Toomua 10 ? It`s a no from me.

The Bled has cracked 65 000+ over the past decade in Syd and Mel, but the crowds were consistently bigger before 2009.

Melbourne to host 2020 Bledisloe Cup clash as part of Wallaroos double-header

Hansen probably erred not selecting Laumape as ALB was a limp biscuit.

Was Samu Kerevi really Australia’s best Super Rugby player this year?

Hopefully Rennie tells Beale that he needs to work on those flaws or he will be punted. KB has had so many chances other players can only dream of. At 32 imo Beale is cooked. We need to move on from him.

Don’t give Giteau’s Law the boot

The Massive issue is the Wallabies haven’t got a test 10. Cheika has left a massive mess behind hasn’t he. 😔

Don’t give Giteau’s Law the boot

Arguably Genia CLL Foley Naivalu QC Tomane Fardy Higginbotham Naiyaravoro Gill and Latu would also be in contention for Wallaby spots.

Rugby Australia to review 'Giteau Law'

Player accountability ! for every missed tackle dropped ball, missed touch kick, bombed try, missed lineout, missed cleanout, penalty against, scrum collapse, yellow card, red card unforced or forced errors etc etc.

$500-$10K should be docked from the players pay. Depending on the severity of error the punishment fee goes up. Hit em in the pocket Dave.

What does Dave Rennie bring to the Wallabies?

Easily best player in 2019.Remarkabkle considering he was playing under two of the dumbest blokes to put a head coach cap on.
