Channel 9 are ruining rugby

Wide World of Sports Facebook image touting that they are the home of the best

So I am angry again. Why the hell aren’t we seeing the Wallabies vs Springbok game live on free to air tv (FTA) on Saturday night? Could it be because the rights were bought by Channel 9? An organisation that have just paid a record sum for the NRL rights and have more vested interests […]

Rugby Championship Predictions 2012: Rd 3


After a fortnight’s break, the Rugby Championship returns to our screens this week with matches from Perth between Australia and South Africa and the New Zealand All Blacks hosting the Pumas from Argentina in windy Wellington.

Haka should be challenged

Rugby World Cup goes Haka crazy

Last night when I got home from Auckland I was trolling through my twitter feed and found the pic on the right. Yes ladies you can all go ‘Awwww’ now. But it got me thinking when I saw the distance between the two sides. Why do the teams have to stand so far apart? The […]

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.

All Blacks Dominate Wallabies

Following the short break after the conclusion of the Super Rugby season, international rugby returns to the Southern Hemisphere with the commencement of the revamped Tri-nations in the form of the Rugby Championship. The addition of Argentina to the competition this season adds an element of excitement to what had become a slightly tired format […]

What do we mean by Rugby “Union”?

Amateur rugby scrum

In rugby terms, what Sonny Bill Williams plans to do to earn a crust for the next while makes no sense whatsoever. Children in New Zealand dream of being good enough to one day wear the silver fern at Test level just the once, let alone be good enough to be the presumptive starting 12 […]

All Blacks have kicked their Achilles’ heel


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 […]
