Long term 'glass half full' rugby fan - Wallabies, Wallaroos, Tahs, Marlins + 7s

Will be a very interesting match to watch.

Wallaroos name THREE debutants for Canada clash, big-name prop benched

The first Joe squad is going to be fascinating. As the 10s are all pretty young would think it is important that they have a voice or 2 around them that they have in Super Rugby be it at 12 or 15. Eg Carter/ Kellaway, Lolesio/Wright. But in reality I have no idea.

The five candidates for the Wallabies No.10 jersey - and the old heads who may sneak in to join them

Thanks DJ. Not even sure what the Madrid format is.

The Singapore Sevens threw up some weird and surprising results - that was except for the dominance of the Kiwis, of course

^Jorja , apologies I’m a bit pedantic. Yes she is outstanding, probably rate her the best 7s player running around. I heard a discussion from one your Kiwi radio hosts saying she would be a great get for the NRLW. Bit of chat of NZ players going to the NRLW & next seasons reintroduction of the Warriors. I see Stacey Waaka off to the Broncos after the Olympics.

In reality there are only a couple of positions available. It is a bit iffy. Haven’t yet gone through a possible list. It may come down to whether there are injuries.

Yes the men’s series is so competitive, don’t think it has ever been as competitive & oddly Fiji & Sth Africa have dropped off.

Good to hear Paisami is staying. TBH I wasn’t a Paisami fan but he has developed over the last couple of years, which in reality is what you would hope would happen. Also will say he is an effort player and I like effort players.

Exclusive: Wallabies star turns down mega deal overseas to re-sign with Queensland Reds

Absolutely.

Aussie women's team lose Singapore Sevens final to NZ, sweat on star's fitness ahead of Olympics

I’m sure some Australians head to NZ but I’m referring to significant success & career opportunities that Australia provides that they are unable to get in NZ. Eg the NRL, A-League, Super Cars, iron men/ women to name a couple. I just think it is great.

Kiwis winning was expected. Biggest take outs Madison Ashby is exceptionally good, hope her knee is ok but my gut feel is, it won’t be. Secondly hope Henry Paterson is ok we need him. Thirdaly, like 15s , with our best we can compete with anyone, once the top drops offer in both men & women we are in trouble. But despite that still enjoy watching both teams.

Muzzo, as I have said many times before how good is it , Australia really is the land of milk and honey for our brethren across the ditch in sport & non sport. We now provide not just opportunities for all the Kiwi sports men & women across so many sports to have a career but also all the comedians / comediennes.

Ok, yes they are on equal points but the BFs are ahead on points differential or something like that.

Rugby Sevens Singapore: Tahs youngster set for debut, Hoops out to impress, new skipper to lead Aussie women

The continual loss of players for Tahs is no doubt a reflection of how Tahs management have been running the business, now RA is in charge but they have some other probs to focus on eg Rebels. The whole is DC going or not is not very helpful. BTW considering all the ticket price specials Tahs have been offering you get the feeling they are struggling on many fronts.

Waratahs set to lose two up-and-comers ahead of Suaalii's arrival as NSW Rugby announce $4.8m loss

Will be interestng to see how close Sarah Hirini goes to rehabbing & trying to get to the Olympics.
The men will miss Longbottom he has become so critical to the team. Keen to see how the women operate without Caslick & how Ashby/Hinds combine.

A national comp would be good, the reality is RA & States don’t have the $$ to run more competitions.

Cheers – just adding a few words, waving the 7s flag

Rugby Sevens Singapore: Tahs youngster set for debut, Hoops out to impress, new skipper to lead Aussie women

Think it will be big weekend for both teams. I’m just keen to see how the women go with so many players out. Even though they are leading the Series jointly with NZ they have dropped off lately compared to NZ who are on a tear at the moment.

Some quality youngsters coming through but have to say it is not just Australia that over hypes its youngsters. In a lot of sports fans & the media are looking for the next shiny new thing eg player. Maybe we all have short attention spans or get bored easily & look for what is next. Maybe the issue in Australia & rugby fans are looking & hoping for that player that will solve all our woes.

The five Aussie young guns who should be celebrated - and the one who is ready for the Wallabies

Yep, hell of assignment. Wish we had more than an even chance would have flown over do like Wellington

Super Rugby Pacific teams round 11: Harrison in for Edmed, Lynagh, White out, Rebels change entire front row

Tough first up gig for Will Harrison against a Canes side in NZ that lost last week. Pleased to see Max J being given a bit of a rest. Anyway it all comes down to how the Tahs forwards go. Hunter Ward a tough little bugger, had a pretty good game against the Rats last week.

Can’t help myself, slight correction, Halse was selected in the first Wallaroos squad last season, but wasn’t capped.

Waratahs' trailblazing teen set for Wallaroos debut as regular quintet dropped for Pacific Four series

Just hope RA has a quality CFO & accounting/ finance team in place.

Rugby Australia announce $9.2m deficit, board member fails to be re-elected but coup falls over

What a complete and utter mess rugby is in in Australia.

The Wrap: Rebels young gun rockets out of Wallabies contention, and why Samipeni Finau's 'brutal' hit on Edmed was fair game

The Fiji ladies when they can’t impose themselves & get behind can get a bit frustrated, happens to them in the 7s too. Always important to keep the ball away from them.

Waratahs put 50 on Drua to claim FIFTH Super Rugby Women's title, playmaker sent off after ugly stomping incident

Well deserved by the Tahs women, they have been dominant the whole season, even though it is pretty short. Have to admit I was confident but not super confident pre game, the Fijian women in 7s & 15s can never be underestimated. The Tahs are enjoyable to watch & seem to genuinely enjoy just playing
