Bledisloe Cup game 2 highlights

Richie McCaw leads the haka

Unlike in the lead up to the first Bledisloe Cup match, last week I was rather confident that the All Blacks would be able to do enough to retain the Bledisloe Cup for the 11th year in a row.  Any All Blacks game is a special game, but this game was more so for me […]

Bledisloe Cup game 1 highlights

Richie McCaw Bledisloe

I am more than willing to raise my hand and say that I expected the All Blacks to lose on Saturday night.  I can’t pin point WHY I felt this way, but after Dan Carter and Liam Messam were deemed unfit I was 100% certain we would lose.  No team can win ALL the time […]

Favourite Bledisloe moment: Part 2

John Eales kicks to win the 2000 Bledisloe Cup in Wellington.

Following on from my ‘Favourite Bledisloe Moment’ post yesterday, it’s time to reveal my second favourite moment. In 2000, the Bledisloe Cup was retained after John Eales kicked a penalty with the last kick of the game in an awesome 24-23 win over the All Blacks in the decider in Wellington. I’m not going to […]

Favourite Bledisloe moment: Part 1

Toutai Kefu celebrating his 2001 Bledisloe try

With the first match in the 2013 Bledisloe Cup set to kick off on Saturday night in Sydney, I started thinking about what I would consider my favourite Bledisloe moment.  Unfortunately as a Wallabies supporter these moments have been few and far between recently and it meant I had to rewind to more than 10 […]

Rugby Championship Predictions 2012: Rd 2

Argentina v Boks

A historic weekend of rugby last weekend panned out as many expected as the defence orientated Wallabies could not pounce on the mistakes made by the rusty All Blacks and the Springboks ran away from the gallant Pumas. This week of fixtures present the “return bouts” with the All Blacks hosting the Wallabies at Eden […]

Bledisloe Cup Post Mortem with Fox Sports

Greg Clark on Fox Sports Google Hangout

Last night Fox Sports held their very first Google+ Hangout hosted by Sean Maloney and Greg Clark. I was lucky enough to be part of the panel that included cricketing legend Stuart MacGill and Green and Gold Rugby’s Steve Timms and Brett Gibson.  It was a lot of fun and I’m going to look at […]

All Blacks have kicked their Achilles’ heel

Dan.Carter

When the news broke last October that Dan Carter was to miss the business end of the World Cup through injury, the Shaky Isles were rocked to their core.  The vague anxiety that traditionally accompanies a World Cup campaign in New Zealand quickly evolved into borderline panic. It was a devilishly ironic moment. Graham Henry […]

Rugby legend Enrique TOPO Rodriguez is the only triple Rugby Union International player having represented Argentina, Australia and Tahiti.  Most notably he was a member of the 1984 Grand Slam / 1986 Bledisloe Cup winning Wallaby teams.  TOPO was kind enough to talk to me about all things rugby.     Name:  Enrique TOPO Rodríguez […]

All Blacks put everyone on notice

All Blacks dominate before RWC

The All Blacks made everyone in International rugby circles stand up and take notice last night after their clinical 30-14 performance against the Wallabies at Eden Park. In what was anticipated to be tightly contested Bledisloe Cup, the men in black never looked in danger of losing the game and are now rightfully considered to […]
