Re: Waratahs vs Chiefs: MATCH THREAD: Sat 12th June

Mini KG is at Barker (yr12) - Mirco KG goes next yr (first yr fully co-Ed). Not sure at the league scholarships nor the nouveau riche. Barker is a very different school from other ones around here - especially Knox, PLC, Abbotsleigh and Ravenswood. Obviously that is my perception. Shore is def the ...

Re: Wallabies 2021 OFFICIAL thread

Swinton is quality those lads giving him shit wouldn't know a blindside flanker from a bar of soap. There's a problem there with a bit too much uncontrolled aggression, but that's a f-ck load better than too little aggro. Once he gets a handle on that he's going to be a star. If it wasn't for that ...

Re: Wallabies 2021 OFFICIAL thread

Okay boys, selection day. Who can suggest a bolter who is going to make today's squad from out of left field? Btw, given the NZ teams won 23 of the 25 TT matches, if Rennie can put together a Wallaby team that's even remotely competitive with the AB's then he will be doing extremely well, and Ian F...

Re: Wallabies 2021 OFFICIAL thread

Which one is making the blindside tackles from the set pieces? Valetini made a great try saving tackle off the scrum last night… You probably missed it because it wasn’t Henry Stowers. What? Your team got arse f**ked last night. Your attempt to talk them up is a bit pathetic. What are you actually ...

Re: Wallabies 2021 OFFICIAL thread

To be fair, Valetini was only ranked a lowly 4th in Super Rugby Au, behind Tizzano, McReight and Koteka, for tackles won... Factoring in how many of those were dominant tackles... and his impact in attack, and workrate off the ball... He's no Henry Stowers. It's not rugby loig slimmy. #6 in real ru...

Some decent ish indivudual performances from the Brumbies, but they looked a bit rudderless without Loloseio.

If he was trying to hit the ball out, the palm of his hand would have faced the sideline. His was facing down.
