“Are you being entertained?”

The game  on the world stage is becoming less about entertaining the fans, and more focused  on kicking and boring structured play! Entertainment is why the fans come to support their teams. However the game of rugby is more focused, at the moment on kicking the cover off the ball! Maybe we should all go and play AFL ... More

“Weekend of upsets”

The weekend concluded with an interesting set of results to say the least. Brumbies vs Force The Brumbies vs Force was one way traffic, with the force really struggling to compete at this level. The Brumbes on the other hand , must learn to play the full 80 minutes if they want to make it to the knock out stages. ... More

“Round two – Super Rugby”

Round two of Superugby saw the home sides starting to assert their dominance over the visiting teams. Brumbies had a great chance to lead the competition with a tough game against the Chiefs, however this was a bridge too far for them. The Tahs win against the rebels showed why they are the defending superugby champions! ... More

The most frequently asked questions from the audiances  have been centered around the shift of rugby into the professional era and how the ... More

“BBC interview, and a quick visit”

Travelling Europe means a lot of PR work and interviews with the press. To date this is my 7th night of dinners, corperate functions and press related interviews. However I’m still looking forward to keeping the Poms happy. Last night i had an interview with BBC in which we chatted about rugby related matters specif... More

“Rugby round up”

My saterday finished off watching the Wallabies become victorious over the Welsh, making it 10 on the trot . As discussed during the week the Welsh yet again are finding it difficult to close out games, even when they have the ascendency over their opponents! This comes down to the style of play the Welsh are adopting. I ... More
