In the time where collision sport is banned it will be a way to keep a group of old supporters happy in their old age! …(more)
Gordon Tallis up against Norm Provan would be another great match up.
On one team Reg Gasnier and Steve Rogers can match up against Greg Inglis and Mal Meninga. Langlands at the back versus …(more)
Or better still, be able to pick your own teams from any player that has ever played the game, and then see a VR simulat…(more)
Massive Sam Perrett fan. There’s a bloke who always put in – he rarely played a poor one. Was gutted when he left the …(more)
Not me. Harrison was a quality footballer.
Campese… another awesome purple patch destroyed by a knee (sigh)! That guy was on an absolute tear prior to doing his…(more)
Rose for Harrison. People will riot otherwise.
That’s cause Pocock’s shoulders were so wide he couldn’t fit through the gate…. 😛 😂 😂
Don’t discount a Nobody, if you’ve seen the movie you’ll know why… 😛 😂
Just a general stand down… it’s about the vibe, you know??
If he thought Berry was bad he has Ben O’Keeffe this week.
What would he have done about that RED CARD!
There is a big difference between professional top tier test rugby and a local club game.
I applaud Erasmus, the Ref can…(more)
Good luck 👍 I don’t envy you
The pressure continues for Berry. It just won’t go away. Reputation is paramount to a Ref, Berry’s is irrepa…(more)
Youve gor a lot to learn about rugby, how it’s played, how it’s officiated. Keep trying, it’s really not that difficult!
As much as I love Rassie, did Eddie Jones and England keep quiet after the Wales game?
Funny. I was just contacted in an emergency basis to be a (one of, of course) referee for a seven’s tournament tomorrow….(more)
Hello Mielie …! Can you imagine a world cup, in the semifinals, the 4 assistant coaches of the teams pressuring the re…(more)
What will they throw at Gatland for his attack on a match officials integrity. A page?
This statement is demonstrably false, as some of the video compares plays for both sides.
I’ll give you an example: the…(more)
Why would I show you something that does not exist? Gatland started all this mess. I was surprised that he escaped scrut…(more)
Rassie can be right (i.e., the video is absolutely devastating).
And he can only have blown up unwritten norms of Rugby…(more)
I think you are missing the point,Millie,it doesn’t matter if Rassie is 100% correct,in his position he should not have …(more)
My mate in our punt club put on king for 4 and McKay for 4. BANG, so I had a loss but my punt club had a nice win
I think Sam Mitchell and Jeff Kennett come off looking the worst in this scandal.
Biggest mistake Bevo did was letting go Roughead it still riles me to this day, well done Peter he’s a ripper bloke &a…(more)
Yes, but don’t forget when he was Premier he caused most of the depression in Victoria.
James Johnson has certainly made a difference. He has been leading during an awful time for football – pandemic, falling…(more)
So when is the current FFA Cup scheduled to reach it’s conclusion?
I would too. Dont really see the point in dropping kids for players like Mayne or Thomas. Their form will fluctuate unti…(more)
Great stuff again Renato, right on the money! 👍 🏏
It’s interesting to note that two of the most famous test loss…(more)
Was surprised Renato didn’t feature Gilchrist in that list, but I think this is purely about specialist batsmen.
The great Gilchrist with a score of 62.7 should be in any article about test strike rates.
And yet another statistic tha…(more)
Here we go again…
I don’t think this crosses a line but he is awfully close to it.
I don’t understand the criticis…(more)
Kolisi was further pressed by a journalist as to how he felt disrespected but replied that he “didn’t want to ge…(more)
Amazing match. Micahs save for the pen whilst immense was actually more straightforward than some of the saves she made …(more)
What a game
I am used to the Blues wins being downgraded but to not cover the game at all then only have this post game is next leve…(more)
I think the game Curnow and McKay played last night would be exceptionally appetising to Clarkson but I still tbink they…(more)
Blues looked very good last night. Their defence was much better and they laid more tackles than usual. Despite losing o…(more)
As long as the stadium of 5k can be developed to a higher capcity in the future, there is no problem.
Yes, the Big Ship played for keeps. I remember reading that he placed himself at long on in one test and spent his time …(more)
Great stuff Rosie! 👍 🏏
And seriously, Warwick Armstrong just seems like an absolute w—er! 😡
Adelaide Oval once had a velodrome?! 😱 😂
edit: the SCG too!
100% courage and commitment.
Immense. The race of his life for 9750m went to hell in the last 250m. He was beaten by others but in the end not by the…(more)
The Para players need to spend less time sitting in a dark room cutting each others hair and maybe spending a bit more t…(more)
It’s not all about money Cat. You can have millions and still not be happy. I think this was a weight off his shoulders …(more)
Poorly handled but probably best for all parties although Kennett should step down for this transition debacle including…(more)
I think Ange gets the Scottish thing. He’ll work with it and enjoy his creative project to realize the dreams of entert…(more)
Wrong again…..as usual.
If we don’t win this year, we do what we do every year. Move on and try again.
Can you guarantee that Fabian? 😱 I’ll go put some money on it! 😊
So why sook about playing Geelong in Geelong, and the dimensions of Kardinia Park?
West Coast established their brand new facilities at Lathlain Park: Perth’s home ground now has identical dimensions to …(more)
So why the constant sooking about Geelong’s home ground?
In West Coast’s case that home advantage is significantly offset by travelling across the country every week.
Tah “admin have been dysfunctional”.
Well blow me over with a feather, Jez.
Well spotted Bluffboy.
There are some ‘very open rumours’ getting about these days.
They have other terms, ….what …(more)
I don’t know the Suns list well enough, but McCartin & Schache were examples of moving some class back.
Would it be feasible to offer high draft picks for players where their previous club pays part of their contract? How wo…(more)
Go to sleep you two, the amount of thinking in your discussion will keep you both awake!
The Giants keep getting a stream of high draft picks from trading out players they drafted with high draft picks, I have…(more)
The Suns access to Darwin talent is interesting. They had the Darwin zone until GWS came along and took it. However, the…(more)
They all had the same stroke rate
I agree. If we’re all of a sudden meant to take mental health more seriously then lets take it more seriously. Where are…(more)
That’s exactly the point. What I witnessed was the greatest choke job in the history of sport. Especially from an athlet…(more)
You’re right. I will never be convinced she’s not a wuss. Which is her right, its human. Just don’t tell me we should be…(more)
Biles has said she had a mental issue. Other gymnasts have said that the mental issue she was facing (the twisties) is a…(more)
Are you saying that you would prefer athletes who can’t perform at their best due to injury in a team sport which allows…(more)
Well CPM, if it’s the coaches job to ask the ref to clarify his intenions, why was Rassie doing it, he isn’t the Bok’s …(more)
The whole TMO system is a farce. They should just be there to find as much footage and camera angles as they can for the…(more)
The evident entitlement is arrogant and something we haven’t seen for a while after SA cleaned it’s game up.
Ok Jacko so if we don’t hold refs accountable we will get a better result? Agree about keeping things polite, but.
For ages, I’ve said (at top tier) we need actual official scrutiny of the decisions, release the scores of the refs, e…(more)
I think that’s reasonable. Officials get paid and are expected to perform well. But the platforms for formal compl…(more)
Oh the hypocrisy..
CPM has condemned him more than once today. I just want him to explain why Gatland was wrong but Erasmus is right.
To criticize doesn’t automatically make you one eyed.
No, but making an hour long video containing ‘errors’ …(more)
I’m an ex-pat. I generally watch these games alone. I have no affection for SA at all. I had no one to influence my opin…(more)
I just think we buy into this notion that you can’t criticize the match officials. We believe it because it’s the way it…(more)
Yes, agree. But Gats smoothly and without a video put Jonker on SUPREME pressure.
Can of worms? I thought ER made some fair points and is somewhat outraged and really just want the officials to do a bet…(more)
— COMMENT DELETED —
Did he learn his craft in the School of Anger and Rants run by partners McEnroe and Kyrgios?
He was top 10 till the heat and humidity got to him
For me Imran Khan is the greatest test captain. Controlling a volatile team ,capable of demanding a place as a bowler or…(more)
Oh come on. Bruce is the voice of athletics and so passionate and knowledgeable – at a factual not technical level.
Agreed Sheek, it’s already intense enough to watch
Nah I think his calmness is another defining (and positive) feature of the commentary.
Agreed. Less cheerleading, more analysis.
The selectors deserve an uppercut too for some of their selections. 😡
gloated or bloated?
I’m absolutely gutted for the Aussie women’s.
They are such a talented team, lead by some outstanding elite athletes in…(more)
Me gusta leer de los pumas aquí. Si quieres ver mal, mira a mi español! 😱
Hello Sinclair …! Club play will resume shortly in Argentina. This is very important news since it is the structure fr…(more)
Doesn’t really make sense to push for a Summer A League & NSD does it? Presumably all NSD clubs will be pre-ex…(more)
What selection role does Maxwell have???
