A Different Planet

Wallabies v Pumas

I never actually planned to write anything much today except for my blog but having watched the two Rugby Championship games I felt compelled to give a perspective from the Northern Hemisphere. Not that I imagine there will be much interest down there about what a Pom thinks. Incidentally I don’t understand why it’s us […]

Sofa so good

Jamie george scores for saracens

I watched 8 games over the weekend – 6 of them ‘live’ in real time. I had to record the Currie Cup as it clashed with the Double header at Twickenham and they only showed highlights of the game at Montpellier against Toulouse. I loaded up the sofa with a pile of pasties and cans […]

Another gritty but flawed Wallabies performance

Wallabies v Pumas

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness”, as Charles Dickens commenced his Tale of Two Cities. For the second week in a row, the Wallabies have given their fans a roller coaster performance. Overall, the good well outweighed […]

Wallabies v Pumas

Another week and another interesting round of the Rugby Championship beckons.  Last week saw the Wallabies open their account in this competition with a hard earned victory against the Springboks in Perth whilst the All Blacks defeated the Pumas in Wellington in a game in which the All Blacks could not have been happy with […]

Wallabies and Boks are their own worst enemy

SprinboksVWallabies

The Wallabies continue to be their own worst enemy.  Clearly, they had learned nothing from the two rugby lessons provided by the All Blacks in the past three weeks. The Springboks have also failed to heed the lessons of the Stormers flawed campaigns in 2011 and 2012. After a schoolboy error riddled performance in Auckland, the Wallabies picked […]
