Just a rugby and cricket nuffy currently playing Colts footy in Brisbane and a proud BSHS graduate.



Reilly hasn't published any posts yet

I’m assuming the tips were lodged before it was revealed Pocock and Alaalatoa are out this weekend haha, shame. That news was certainly enough for me to change my tip to the Waratahs.

Super Rugby Round 5: Perfection lives here

Sorry, I only read the first two paragraphs, but what a load of crap! “A Chicago newspaper confusing the All Blacks as an Aussie team shows how little interest there is for rugby in the USA.” Are you bloody kidding me! What about the 65 000 crowd that turned up? That lot are obviously new to the sport and they are bound to make a few mistakes, but, bloody hell, the Suncorp Bledisloe match didn’t even sell out! And that is in Australia where rugby is pretty popular. And then the kiwis head to USA where they’ve got evidently no clue of our sport, but get a 65 000 strong crowd – and to say they’ve got no interest in rugby! LOL.

Rugby must invest in the Pacific, not the USA

Wrong sport.

Smith to Aussie batsmen: Use your feet


Wales on edge for 'clinical' Wallbies

“Nor has there been any apology forthcoming from former Wallaby coach Ewen McKenzie, whose treatment of Beale – including his refusal to select him – deserved explanation.”

Ewen McKenzie needs to explain why he didn’t select Kurtley Beale! Lmfao! Let me do it for him. He selected Beale at fly-half for gods sake, he was average for a couple of games and got dropped to the bench. He came on against South Africa in Cape Town and performed one of the worst displays I’ve ever seen of rugby in my life and therefore got dropped. In fact, my understanding is he had to get dropped anyway because by then the whole texting drama had started by then.

Ewen McKenzie was a pretty average selector – yes – but you don’t need to constantly remind us. Lordy!

Kurtley Beale cleared to join the Wallabies' Spring Tour

Just about to ask.

Good read for what could have been an extremely boring article.

The NRC wrap Round 9: Yes, rugby was played over the weekend

When the All Blacks got on out line with, I don’t know, 1 minute left; I knew they were going to score. And when the Wallabies right winger desperately stopped the All Blacks’ left right on the sideline (it is hard to see who is who from a 100 metres away in the stands), I knew that was out last hope. I knew the All Blacks were going to score somewhere closer to the posts. Am I the only one that thought it would have been better to let them score in the corner and hopefully they would miss the kick? Obviously the Wallabies aren’t going to play like that though, it’s against the spirit of the game i guess.

Wallabies gutted after last-gasp loss

Damn, so sick of reading this crap. Lets move the hell on.

Perception is everything, and it could be McKenzie's downfall

Missing apostrophe in Leali’fano in the title.

Doesn’t have to do with anything but just saying, what a team. If only it wasn’t for injuries and stuff. Kurtley Beale and Drew Mitchell couldn’t even make the cut.

The Beale saga: Focus about to switch firmly onto McKenzie

Does the third paragraph even make sense?

Shortened edition of Rugby Championship announced for 2015

Seems like it could be fake.

Get y’all titles making sense Roar.

Good rugby folk: pull your fingers out, help save the game

Very unbiased opinion, Scott! Gee, I thought Nigel was shocking until I read this. I still disagree on the Hooper card, though.

On the scrumhalf issue, Jimmy Cowan just came back from Japan (I think) and he had an absolute blinder in the ITM Cup on the weekend. It’s too late to give him the All Black’s 9 jersey obviously but why not make him a substitute? I’ve never been a fan of the likes of JP Perenara and Tawera Kerr-Barlow anyway.

The Rugby Championship Week 6: The big questions

I think Ewen McKenzie selected Will Genia in the squad to ease him back into Test Match rugby. First, he’s on the bench for Brisbane City, then he starts, then he is in the Wallaby’s squad, then he is on the bench (I think he will be there next week for Nic White), then he starts at 9. Link is probably using a pre-empted plan to use all three scrum-halves on the tour.

Plus, David just take a chill pill, Ewen is a Super-Rugby-winning standard of a coach, I think he knows what he is doing.

When will Ewen McKenzie get the selection message?

Are you serious? Too*. Do The Roar even read the articles before they post them? I see at least 5 spelling errors on this website daily.

World Cup to soon for Sam Burgess: Moody

“Meyer said. said.” Do the Roar even read the articles they post?
