An avid sports fan... but a diehard Rugby supporter. Especially the Wallaby & Tahs.

Thanks ‘Irish’… and wow, them some apples!

I think the only things forgotten were Kangaroos and Holden cars? 😂

A letter to our English rugby friends ahead of the Test series

Thanks Ken… yeah watched the game with great interest. Gotta say the conditions were atrocious. Sunshine Coast be buggered!

Disappointing end to the game… but they rolled da dice eh. Agree with your thoughts on the players you’ve highlighted but would add also the replacement prop that came on in the second half… Thor 2?? 😛

Junior Wallabies' bold call to skip tying penalty and go for last-gasp win cruelly backfires

‘He won’t give the bloody kicking tee away!’

How can he? He’s got no arms ffs! 😛

Mario Milano… and Killer Karl Kox 😊

Let alone 8 dwarfs in a caged ring at the old Sydney Stadium circa 69-71?? 😱

Thanks Mick… as I sit I’m rubbing my hands together in anticipation!

Didn’t he go to moon and back too?

Ironic eh… not! 😔

Hey, only one more sleep to possible squeaky bottom time… but don’t forget our U20s tonight v Bargies. No doubt a worthy past-the-time candidate?! 😊

Well, if you put like that… then I’m gonna chuck a dwarf on the fire tonight just for old times sake. Bonding sake. Arm in arm with brothers north of the border type sake. 😛

C’mon Aussie!

Queeeeeeeeeeeeeenslander! 😂

Thanks Mick… enjoy this review of the current state of play both England and the Wallaby find themselves in prior to this first test in Perth.

I’m always wary of that little grinning assassin Eddie… and as he’s behind the eight ball presently, even more so!

I’m sure England are here to play… especially as dwarf throwing has now been banned in pubs. But, be that as it may, the Wallaby, I’m positive, will also understand the gravity of this series with a RWC looming next year in France. Let alone the fact it’s a series against our olde enemy… those poncy patronising Poms ffs!

Oh… and welcome to da ROAR, Mick. 👍 🏉 😊

I think that’s the idea of the ‘A’ team… throw a few in that are there about and see what happens?!

Australia A team: Ryan Lonergan to lead, Edmed at flyhalf as Gilmore names side to face Samoa

Yeah jez… Hugh Sinclair eh??

Anyhow, I know G will be extremely excited for Hugh… he rates him massively!?! 😂

Good advice… 😂

WALLABIES TEAM: JOC, Tate left OUT of 23 in Rennie's Reds purge, Neville and Porecki to debut as Brumbies dominate

Damn you Bishop… it’s one thing for me to think it, but for you to confirm my fears is very off-putting. I’m totally gone all cats and rocking chairs shyte… now. Thanks! 😔

… or Hooper 3 England 0 😱

Return of the Thursday two-up: Predictions and pressure points as north battles south

Yes… correct and probably what I was alluding to?! 😂

Probably trying to solve the 23 or 24 thingy?!? 😂

Return of the Thursday two-up: Predictions and pressure points as north battles south

I only got to watch the second half… and thought how did the MABs score so many points in the first? 😱

The Irish were all business in the second… aggressive, direct and definitely not happy (obviously) with their performance in the first half. Crossed the line several times and only got one try as reward. Weirdest bit was near the end where the MABs wanted to kick a penalty in front… and missed. Then a dropkick later… and missed also!

Thanks Bertmon… and sundry others 👍

SA 3-0

ABs 3-0

Wallaby… geez, wanna say 3-0 but I’m really nervous about this. Suffice to say, to avert groundhog day a la 2016 our tight five need to be mongrel go forward for the full eighty. And discipline will need to be paramount also.

C’arn da Wallaby… don’t care how you do it, just win ffs!

PS Good luck to all combatants, on and off the field, as we all love this time of year 👍 🏉 😊

Return of the Thursday two-up: Predictions and pressure points as north battles south

Thanks buddy… I’m with you (except for the odd punt) as I feel this series could go either way. Hence, good luck to your mob… likewise to my mob. And let’s both hope it’s a cracker! 👍 🏉 😊

It's time for the Wallabies to front up against ancient foes, and this is how they should do it

Thanks Nicholas… and here we are now?! 😊

Gotta say I’m as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs…

C’arn da Wallaby… don’t want to be entertained ffs just win the thing!

Hey Neil… if I gave you a fiver who would you bet it on?

… and whether Jasper will moustache or not?! 😁

Thanks Bodger for the betting intel… reckon Wallaby favouritism is only due to home ground advantage?! Which means that if the ‘smart money’ is presently as is we’re all in for a tight Test series. Obviously we will all be smarter for the fact after this w’end. 😊

My love-hate relationship with Eddie's new England

… and it has The Set Peace as part of it’s PR Department 👍
