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

Yeah, more heart of gold… than rough diamond 😛

He’s a rough diamond… 😛

Ah, ffs! 😔

‘I understand your reservation with Jasper, cannot say I am a fan either.’

… nor I a fan of that ridiculous moustache thingy he had goin’ recently 😱

Mind you, without it, poor old Nesbo was having some difficulty being able to identify him!? 😛

The Thursday Two-up: Biggest concerns and lessons learned as TRC narratives emerge

Thanks Bertmon… and other international experts. 👍

Whoa is me… whoa is da Wallaby… Whoa ain’t wow. Presently?! 😔

Them Wallaby have gotta week or so to right the ship after the Massacre of San Juan. Doable? Against da Bok? At home… well, Adelaide is sorta home?? Dunno!

Q1. If Rennie is able, able seaman able, to put a healthy team on deck… with the right officers in the right positions, like not Wright at fullback right, then da Wallaby maybe well positioned to fire the odd shot or two across the Bok’s bow. But if a Wallaby can’t… they will surely be scuttled. Sunk!

Q2. Without doubt it’s those hungry, meat eating, mad passionate Bargies types… so look out Shaky Isles. Your home is about to be invaded… Latino style!

Neiled it, Nobes! 👍 🏉 😊

Thanks Sinclair… and that was some substantive read. Took a while to digest as I’m not too well acquainted with the cuisine. All the same enjoyed the feed… balanced wit excellent texture. Well done!

Like you, I wouldn’t be a coach for quids in the professional game… too much hero and then zero moments. It’s bad enough being held accountable by the people that (hopefully) know… but an entirely different thing when the buffoons start beating in. Nah, you have that!

A plea for justice for Ian Foster

Thanks H’lander… well rounded summary of what’s needed (and shown) for the almighty to be the almighty again ABs. And, as I’ve mentioned before, Mo’unga running the show, producing the show, allowed the pigs to do their thing which allowed him to do his thing. Tweaks they were… tweaks much needed with that capital ‘T’ thingy!

Now, only if you can get the presser tweaks right eh?! 😛

Really looking forward to the Bargies coming to town… as many excuses as the Wallaby may offer this Bargie team, if on song, will give ewes a run for ya money. And how good is that?! 👍 🏉 😊

ANALYSIS: Tactical tweaks that transformed the All Blacks

Thanks Nicholas… lapped that one up as I was struggling to remember how many throws Arnold got during the game. Now I know… bugger all. What a waste! 😔

Tom Wright is no a fullback…

Are Taffies Taffies due to the Taff River? 😊

ANALYSIS: 'Kindergarten' lineout calls and the 'luxury' player Dave Rennie can't afford against Springboks

Yeah… but at only 30 years of age can Gill play fullback?

Rugby News: 73% of fans still want Foster sacked as D-Day set, RA behind Rennie despite all-time rankings low

Probably… more than likely, that the Cruel Sea song is about breaking up with a girl 😔

Wallabies losses like San Juan help build the case against Dave Rennie

Yep… just can’t seem to get myself off this bloody cross thingy?! 😱

Ah, ffs! 👎 🤢 🥊

Gotta say Tragic… you referenced the old ‘honeymoon period’ thingy being over!?

And as this is now very much part of the present day vernacular i.e. the new Prime Minister’s honeymoon period is over/ must be over/ is it over? I’m thinking what now defines a ‘honeymoon period’ with regards to new international coaches? And thus should it then be in the contract? Further, would it be of assistance to have a review committee for said needs? And, lastly, but just as importantly, did the Cruel Sea have this in mind when they penned their song? 😛

Is this a Queeeeeeeeeeeeeeenslander thingy… or for the Wallaby types?

Please explain!? 😊

Hugh, maybe it’s just me, but I find somewhat ironic that it’s presently Kiwi coaches who find themselves somewhat under the pump, while failed former Aussie coaches are having a field day?! 😱 😛

Pigs! 😂 😂

‘It’s okay to have a long face, Chook, as long as you have a long brain that fits in it.’

That’s too many ‘longs’ in this area of the field, Legs… so it’s penalty against you. Now, go back and talk to yourself, or otherwise anymore and you’ll be going to the bin. And, please c’mon no more, as this ill-discipline will only bring more scrutiny on your already under pressure coach!

Is it fair to say, Tragic… that your coach is maybe only just part of the problem?

For mine, as an outsider and having been through the same shyte with both the Wallaby and the mighty, mighty Tahs, the real cause of concern lays firmly at the feet of your board and it’s executive. Plus, add to that the poor performances of your U20s programme of recent years. And, while we’re at it, possibly just a cycle thingy as well?! 😁

Thanks Bertmon… coaches, ha!

Who’d wanna be one? If the team wins it’s what a fantastic team effort with such and such having a blinder, game for the ages thingy. If the team loses it’s because the game-plan sucked, the selections were poor or both, the team was under-prepared etc. Yeah, who would want to be a coach?!

ACT Brumbies… why the long face? Anyhow, they’ll always know where home is 😛

Not at all, JRVJ… I’m certainly one that’s been loudly singing the praises of this Bargies mob. And whether it’s Cheika’s influence or not that’s brought about this greater verve I can’t tell you… yet.
And tbh I really looking forward to Los Pumas playing the ABs, especially after their draining, emotional or otherwise, trip to SA. Reckon fireworks!

Do sparrows in NZ fart too? 😱

The victory that surely condemned Ian Foster

I’m loving it, Late… and, like you, reckon this could be the making of the Bargies.

Can’t wait to see how they go against the ABs, especially after their tour to SA and all the emotional baggage that came with that. The time is ripe!

Rugby News: Foster treatment borders on 'reckless', why Cheik 'started crying,' Brumbies go back to 2004

Thanks H’lander… and congrats on your win over the proud Bok in Jo-burg. Cracker of a game!

I knew it was pretty much coming because you don’t just lose that much rugby DNA overnight. And with Mo’unga finally getting selected, to in essence steer the ship around, your did what you’ve been doing for a long time… win rugby games. Mind you there were others mitigating factors that assisted this victory but the selection of Mo’unga was the biggie imo.

The victory that surely condemned Ian Foster

That was some effort from your guys in San Juan, Nobes. Very impressive!

Now, the real challenge awaits in NZ… 👍 🏉 😊
