The Punt #34

A big week for The Punt, with three of our experts cashing in. James, David and Tomo all got up thanks to some smart wagering, which leaves only Adrian without a win this year. Tomo extended his lead at the top with a solid win, while James shot above David into second after the biggest win of 2012. Can Adrian finally break his drought? Read more…

The Punt #33

Only Matt was able to cash in last week, while Adrian had an extremely close call with Triple J’s Hottest 100. Unfortunately nobody else was able to get too close, but can someone win big this week and end the first month of 2012 on top?

The Punt #31

2012 unfortunately started much like 2011 – nobody was able to cash in. We’re still all stuck on the same amount. Perhaps this week we’ll see a breakthrough? Read more…

Welcome to another instalment of the Drawing Board, Who’s Playing Who?’s one stop rugby shop. It’s been quite a weekend of upsets in super rugby this week with the Lions, Cheetahs and Chiefs surprising most pundits. It’s been an exciting week over in Europe with the semis taking place in the Aviva Premiership and Magners League and the semi final qualifiers in the Top 14. Injuries continue to be of concern with this being a World Cup year, with all team anxious to get their stars through the season OK.

The Drawing Board (11/5/11)

Welcome to the Drawing Board, Who’s Playing Who?’s one stop rugby stop. This week has been an exciting one, especially up north where a few of the major domestic European leagues finish their league phases and move into the play-offs. Things are beginning to shape up in Super Rugby as teams jostle for the top 6 positions. It’s quite congested in the middle part of the table, as shown by the fact that the mighty Cheetahs are now up to 10th on the overall standings!! Let’s get straight into the news. Read more…

The Drawing (wait for it) Board- 5/5/11

Welcome to the Drawing Board for this week. Well, I hope you enjoyed the last week of rugby as much as I did. Things are getting interesting in the Super Rugby world.  All the games have been meaningful and interesting to watch, but by my reckoning there are only 36 of the remaining 49 that will have an impact on the semi final spots. Realistically there are only about 8 teams in the running for the top 6 spots. Before we go any further with Super Rugby, let’s hit the news. Read more…

Just to lighten the mood I thought you might like this: http://youtu.be/vAtVD-SnVIo . Had enough of the pies? It’s been an intriguing week of rugby, with several interesting results making a mockery of the so called experts. I won’t keep you waiting for any longer, here is some news. Read more…

The Drawing Board (20/4/11)

Welcome to another instalment of your favourite rugby blog, The Drawing Board. Hopefully you have your Easter plans sorted.  I would love to say that I will be in for a few days of watching rugby but I have to go on a camp, so that has ruled me out for the weekend. However, I still will be keeping a keen eye on the matches whenever possible. Enough of that, let’s get going on this week’s proceedings. After a couple of weeks of slightly less tries, this week contained (yes I was surprised too) 49 tries across 7 games (at an average of 7 a game, it’s kind of entertaining) Read more…
