I really enjoy watching the likes of Cane. A hard-nosed and gutsy player.

Slammin' Sam Cane shows just how good the Kiwis' super sevens are

Touché, Piru.

Aussie abroad: Mike Harris

Yep, debuted at 15 in that game. Didn’t wear the Green and Gold for another four years after that game.

Aussie abroad: Luke Morahan

It is shame about Luke’s injury. I didn’t realise it was that serious until now.

Ah, yes… It’s definitely the story of the day.

Aussie abroad: Luke Morahan

Haha… He’s not everyone’s cup of tea.

Daly is the man in favour, but I think Brown is better under the high ball and his kick-returning always gives great go-forward.

Watson hasn’t played in a long time. May not get himself up to speed in time.

Worth watching how this unravels throughout the year.

Who will be the comeback king at the 2019 Rugby World Cup?

Brown is in outstanding form. Don’t count him out yet.

Thanks Flyman! There are Aussie players everywhere now.

Aussie abroad: Cruze Ah-Nau

Hi James, click on my profile and there’s a couple of other Aussies abroad to catch up on.

Aussie abroad: Cruze Ah-Nau

The other top nations dominate Australia nearly every time at the set-piece. Ah-Nau and others are going abroad and becoming better players not just in scrums and lineouts, but at the breakdown as well. Perhaps Australian coaching needs a shift in emphasis.

Thought-provoking and a good chuckle! Although it’s unlikely to happen when the SFS is re-erected, it’d be good to see more games elsewhere. North Sydney Oval, please…

Hey Waratahs, welcome to NSW (you probably won't be back, hey?)

Where are you based, Riddler? Brock James would be a really interesting yarn.

Aussie abroad: Zack Holmes

Enjoyed that read, Nick. You make a really good case for Hunt as Australia’s starting # 12. it will be interesting to see how it all shakes out this year.

Why the Wallabies should be on the midfield K-trail

Agree on the water-carrying. Beale had a sub-standard year last year and really needs to pick things up in general to be a Wallabies contender.

Where will the Wallaby selectors play Folau and Beale?

Thanks, M. More to come!

Aussie abroad: Zack Holmes

His decision to leave has definitely been vindicated. Thanks for the comment!

Aussie abroad: Zack Holmes

Cheers, CR!

Aussie abroad: Zack Holmes

Thanks for the thumbs up, Piddy!

Aussie abroad: Zack Holmes

Thank you, Graeme. This is true. Zack has confirmed with me that since our interview he has, indeed, signed on for two more years with Toulouse.

Aussie abroad: Zack Holmes

Absolutely, Will. It’s been a while between trophies there so expectations will be high as the season rolls on.

Aussie abroad: Zack Holmes

Thanks for you interest, B. Requests noted…will see what I can do!

Aussie abroad: Zack Holmes

Agreed. 10 and 15, a big part of the spine of the team, are not cutting the mustard at the mo.

Reds schooled by the Death Eaters from the south

Leicester are goners this year… they won’t make the semis nor will they be relegated making TPN dispensable.

Tatafu Polota-Nau loaned to Waratahs as injury replacement

Absolutely. The team has improved from last year, and he’s a big reason why.

Aussie abroad: Paddy Ryan

Thanks for the interest!
