It’s close to but still slightly away from one, which allows us to retain the shoulder chip. 🙂

I don’t at all agree with your narrow categorisations.

What about ball tampering then being allowed to play world cups again? Condoning chea)ts is just not on.
Hadn’t seen this Sage. Good summary, thanks for forwarding.
Jacko, I find it hard to believe you and others like you (stillmissit for example) still think you can get away with thi…(more)
Although it seemed a bit hard for Israel to refuse to comment it seems. Mmm interesting.
No, NZD to AUD. I just guessed anyway, no idea what the rate is right now.
I’m not sure what your point is to be honest, that’s not what Folau was reprimanded for. I agree your list more it l…(more)
I see your Steve Smith and raise you a Chris Pringle – the man who ball tampered with a bottle cap and nearly one a test…(more)

Alot of them are already signed up with Super rugby sides
Brumbies have Frost, Lolesio
Reds have McReight, Wilson, Lucas…(more)
Scrum has struggled all tournament.
I’ve been touting Wilson’s praises on the limited footage I’ve seen this tournament…(more)
Harry Wilson replaced Will Harrison…
True, but he was far from our best player. McReight, Wilson, Wood, Donaldson all better
You only missed who the coach was?
So it’s not all bad news in green and gold.
Great to read this.
And it seems that Lucas is coming along well.
That second half performance was something to behold. The key question is, who specifically at RA is responsible for kee…(more)
Well done the J-Wobs! Watched the highlights this mornig, awesome effort. Will be tuning in for the final on Sunday morn…(more)
I watched this, smarts (with a few exceptions), skill, and ticker. Good to see.

Michael Cheika has had nearly 5 years to mould a Wallaby team and he still cant do it.You know why.It`s because he has t…(more)
Waxhead,the Brumbies have always been my 2nd team(usually ended up as 1st one when the Tahs missed the finals),so I am d…(more)
Nice piece mate, just the right tone!
Remember when we had a beer straight after the round one loss to the Rebels, and …(more)
If hate is your answer – then you are asking the wrong question.
Is that additional to the warming comforting layer of alcohol I’ll have?
If Foley is Wallaby 10 and not CLL or QC i`m barracking for the other team. Enough of the Foley cr@P .He has been pathet…(more)
What a very strange last line, Patto.
It’s entirely possible to be critical in a civil and meaningful way without needi…(more)
As a Chiefs fan I would LOVE to see the Chiefs land in Canberra next week……54-17 losses tend to bring the best out o…(more)
That’s the question, I think.
Back youth now and accept there will be some losses, or pinch hit with a bit of experienc…(more)
They’ll get the message eventually..
Yep and I think Slipper was the “buy” of the season. Has added a lot to the team. AND I understand the Reds are paying …(more)
There are a few coming through pleasingly. Ideally CL would have played one more year but in a transitional capacity to…(more)
Brown’s been excellent Connor, and thoroughly deserving of his new 2yr deal. But all the backrowers have been.
Plenty of love, Chookman..
Yep, all valid points RT..
Fair points about last season Sinclair, and the Brumbies admitted themselves they were caught between methods last seaso…(more)
Bring another layer, Kiwi. It’s going to be brisk on Saturday!
Sadly David, the reality of society these days is that scandal sells.
But there’s always room for good news..
My sincerest apologies in advance Brett. Cheika doesn’t pick and stick with Brumbies.The Wallabies will ultimately be st…(more)
And as history has shown, Waxman, there’s plenty of room on said bandwagon..
Yeah, Brumbies fans are Chiefs fans this week Bobby, for sure..
Even at flyhalf Moondoggie, the depth is there, it’s just very young..
Flyhalf becomes a really interesting conundrum, Fionn.
There’s no doubt that Hansen and Lolesio are the future there, b…(more)
Will be interesting to see what the narrative will be if they lose on Saturday though – all of a sudden the wins t…(more)
It’s the NSW way. Qld would never win if NSW built up combinations, so it evens up the lack of Qld depth.
Let’s not get too hysterical about the number of changes. 3 were through injury. I am perplexed by some of the replace…(more)
He’s a labour hire contractor who nearly made a mistake, happens everyday in Australia as we have become a labour hire w…(more)
The Afghans have been a big disappointment in this event. The batting has looked very poor.
Mitchell had a strong year last year built on a very strong Roosters team and enthusiastic NSW victory. However, for all…(more)
It may be old school as you suggest Nat, but clearly Mr Mitchell needs something to kick start him playing top class foo…(more)

I don’t know about all this Gould domination stuff. You’re indirectly suggesting Fittler can’t make up his o…(more)
A little harsh on his game against the Dogs. I don’t get to see much group 9 reserve grade but it must be a better comp …(more)
What does need to be asked, repeatedly, is why there aren’t reserve days? And supplementary to that question is why ar…(more)
Harry, a joy to read as always. I can smell that grass and am smiling ruefully at a few injuries as I read this.
Harry, just saw this.
Most of my fellow Australians responding to you here have been distracted by the subject – the hon…(more)
It’s his new justification for picking his Tahs favourites, regardless of form or ability. Supposedly team dynamics dema…(more)

The non-selection of Turner is a bigger issue, taking the easy way out and picking samey batsmen like Marsh and Khawaja….(more)
Plus fulfilled a too similar role to Starc and Cummins
Not picking Handscomb and then not making the tough call allowing Khawaja to open has backfired. We have Khawaja floatin…(more)
Imagine, for a moment, that this was the squad we currently had available:
Nah won’t happen, would be funny to watch poor old Queensland suddenly have to prop Victoria up on its own. If it …(more)
Are you a parking officer Bobbo7?
I’ve always thought W.A should secede and form their own country. This confirms it. In fact, what’s happenin…(more)
I’ll give you 3 to 1 they don’t.
Just cage the mosh pit and make it no rules – no punishments. You enter but may not ever leave?
That’s because you actually have to go to a game Anon. I suspect you haven’t been to a game in the past 20 years.
Round 22 against Gold Coast we should farewell Roughead, Burgoyne, Puopolo, Schoenmakers, Birchall, Mirra and Frawley. P…(more)
Like school teachers, the umps have that uncanny ability to NOT punish the bullys.
The reason Stratton did it is because he knows no one is going to belt him, as they would have in the old days.
BA, how is it you’re actual able to come up with the correct decision making process yet 5 NSW based officials being pai…(more)
You cant remember ? (a river rock could work it out quicker)……You keep going Princess!
I think genetics is the reaso…(more)
I remember Kurt McQuilkin…..Wasnt his old man Noel the King country coach for a while? Pretty Sure he was in my class …(more)
Why not, 3 points for the win, 2 points for golden point win, 1 point for a draw.
There is a legit debate about how much you pick based on form. Firm is temporary, but class (or lack of) is permanent. T…(more)
Faaingaa and Arnold are no certainties with Cheika as coach and selector. He called FF fat and lazy on rugby central and…(more)
Every coach needs their sacrificial lamb.
AND possibly appoint the bloke (Gibson) as the attack coach…
Let’s take that even further and have a new reality TV series started called ‘” so you want to be an AFL umpire”…”and …(more)
Can you explain why you think one of the best players of all time “deserves” to be hounded?
I’m not a Geelong supporter …(more)
I can certainly see the benefit of such a decision, but one of the great things about the AFL is the mixing of supporter…(more)
One of my faves is “are you a cricket umpire – because you havent moved from the cricket pitch all day ?”
20 hours out from our next world cup match
And we’re still talking about this non-story.
Thanks Stuart. I hadn’t seen that.
And no, I don’t think you dislike Sam. But she doesn’t fit the mould of a normal Aust…(more)
Finally. Something not about Sam Kerr’s interview.
We need to finish 2nd.
Give it time, Sidey ! Snouts in the trough – snort, snort.
Hi E-Man – not an employee, just a long suffering fan – sigh. They’re a hard team to follow.
