How Ireland won the battle of the big men in Dublin

You are right! That is quite an achievement isnt it Nick?

Im green – or rather green and gold – with envy. Red too.

Saaad 🙁

How Ireland won the battle of the big men in Dublin

Thanks NB!

I thought the reason ABs win is they play a 23 & 230 man game ie:
– They can play cohesively at certain pace for 80’+ straight. Even teams like the Pumas can outplay the ABs, but only for the first term at the most
– You can lose all the top tier ABs, and replace them with another 23 and still perform as required
– The same for coaches.

As such standouts such as Brodie etc look good because hey are part ofa machine (The Borg) that continues to deliver, no matter what. No matter where

The Irish have been able to do that, by delivering a 23 man game. Can they do it consistently against the ABs? Time will tell. Lets see the depth.

…or maybe not!

The Wrap: Is this D-day for Michael Cheika or same old, same old?

Who told you the reason I wrote the comment was to defend GP. Mind reading? btw, whats there to defend?

Please let’s not talk about smacking each other. Were not kids anymore, mostly

Anyone who believes only certain noses belong in certain places on this site. Smacks of same self-righteousness and elitism that RARA & Co are accused of.

hi sheek. I didnt read your comment. Could be interesting. But, then again maybe not

The Wrap: Is this D-day for Michael Cheika or same old, same old?

No yet, Dr P. But will look into it soon

Im pretty sure Lukham will know. Along with Super Captain, Coach, RARA and Co!

The Wrap: Is this D-day for Michael Cheika or same old, same old?

I watched all his games closely. I dont recall him having any bad games esp at SR level.

Some brilliant moments. The one I cant forget is a smart and skilled clearance kick which preceded a rare win vs the Brums in 2017. Not bad for a rookie

Australian rugby dealt massive blow with Izaia Perese set for shock code switch

hahahaha

Ned for Captain.
Hoops for Super Captain

Baldy for motivation coach

Sad news. Big big fan of Izzy. He has the same heart, guts and grit as SeanMc. Also highly skilled, but not used much.

Then again, thats the Reds 2018. Lets see next year

Thanks Nick!

They only have to change one thing to make it better 😉

Until then all WBs fortunes will be as fictional as Redfords movie

Australian rugby can turn this corner, but only if it wants to

Thanks Brett. Yes. Noone has a clue

Thus bring on the Trump of Aussie Rugby!

hey riddler. 100%

It was a terrible loss, when they tossed the old book and the practices / processes around it

The Wrap: What can Australian rugby learn from Grant Fox?

yes, its a good sign.

re RA. The frustration everyone feel is the lack of articulation that deals with issues faced by various stakeholders

The Wrap: What can Australian rugby learn from Grant Fox?

Dr P. That is long and hard like a good drive

Coaching is extremely important #2 only to administration

That’s why I’m so elated with this piece of news

The Wrap: What can Australian rugby learn from Grant Fox?

RARA? They have presided over the decline of the national sport consistently over the course of almost 20 years

The less they do the better. But they still play a critical function

Unfortunately they don’t know what it is, exemplified by their inarticulation, and the vacuum now being filled by peep like Twigs. Not to mention the balance sheet and an unclear turnaround plan.

Just like the Reds coaching strategy. Its run by a bunch of rookies.

It's time to centralise Australian rugby

Hulk, as you probably noticed there’s a big cultural difference between Aussies and Kiwis

Compared to us, they tend to align, conform and maintain a level of order and decorum

We Aussies love to argue, be a larrikin and shout. The Poms are the same. Hence their Rugby culture is more similar to us. The central power is somewhat subservient to the edges.

As an example, the act of centralisation once we started becoming better is basically what deflated professional Aus and the silly ideas that they brought on.

I think it will be a while before we get our act together. The future lies in aligning our Rugby administration with our provincial culture whilst enabling RARA to leverage on it.

It's time to centralise Australian rugby

That’s a powerful idea Hulk

But I think centralisation is suitable for small populations with homogenous rugby cultures. We should leverage on the diversity in Aus

Its messy but will sort itself out

Besides I don’t think giving the power and authority to RARA is the best idea given their performance in and out of the paddock

Awesome! I’m back on line

So gonna put my 1c worth soon!

Why the answers for Australian rugby are blowin’ in the wind

HAZAAAAAaaaAA!

WBs by 15…. according to Check.

actually he may be right!

Sapporo awaits

Thanks Nick!

Great analysis again. too bad its wasted on this team
Look forward to your next one nevertheless

Thanks BMAC!

May your golf score as low as WB 2018 tries

Why do the Wallabies make the game more difficult?

Thanks Brett. Its grimm isn’t it. But not much of a fairy tale

A coach change to try winning the RWC in ten months time will bring as many happy endings as monetary massage parlour

England loss confirms Wallabies are no closer to RWC success

np mate. It was 2am I think in Melbourne then.

In any case 2019 will be an interesting year, again for many reasons.

Tahs and Brums look good. I think the Rebs will be more competitive also
