The Drawing Board – End of year tour review

December 7, 2012 Leave a comment

A stunning victory by England over world champions New Zealand and seven tries from Ireland against Argentina were two rare high points for the home nations in the November internationals against the visitors from the south. Read more…

The Drawing Board (15/6/2012)

Hello and welcome to Who’s Playing Who?’s weekly rugby blog. This week saw the first ever break in Super Rugby history for the internationals. So not that many games played over the weekend, but they were high quality none the less. The northern hemisphere teams are currently undertaking tours of each of the southern hemisphere countries, which is a step in the right direction for me. This allows for more drama to unfold during the course of the series, and gives teams a chance to work each other out over a few weeks. Well done whoever had the foresight to bring these back.

The Punt #50

Adrian and Matt, both down the bottom of the ladder, recorded good wins last weekend. Adrian in particular cashed in big time, and got himself out of last place for the first time in many weeks. While there’s still a big gap between second and third, it’s slowly closing… Can anyone win in this 50th edition of The Punt?

The Monday Wrap – 10/10/11

October 10, 2011 Leave a comment

The Monday Wrap returns following a massive weekend of sport, and one enthused (by sport), yet heavily bored (by other things) author. Trying not to miss anything I’ll take a look at the return of the A-League, the Champions League Twenty20 finals, the Rugby World Cup quarter finals (although I’ll leave the main analysis to our man on the ground and the best in the business Shippy) as well as  the battle for Brookvale version two. All that and more in The Monday Wrap! Read more…

RWC 2011 – Quarter Final Preview

October 7, 2011 4 comments

It is down to the business end of the competition. The pool play has finished and all we are left with is the top eight teams in the world. To be honest, most of these teams were easy to predict that they would get through to the quarters. Perhaps only Argentina can claim that they are the only shock, but even then, it was not a huge stretch of the imagination to see them qualifying. Read more…

The Drawing Board – Rugby World Cup 2011 Preview (7/9/11)

September 7, 2011 Leave a comment

Welcome to the Drawing Board, Who’s Playing Who?’s one stop rugby shop. The World Cup starts this Friday, with excitement reaching fever pitch. I’ll be doing a bit of a different Drawing Board this week and during the world cup. No News this week, but I will still do a brief ITM/Currie Cup wrap here. During the World Cup however, I will be doing a blog post almost every day to provide up to date and awesome analysis. Canterbury and Hawke’s Bay won the ITM Premiership and Championship finals respectively. This is Canterbury’s fourth consecutive title, whilst for Hawke’s Bay they earn promotion to the Premiership.  The Lions, Sharks, Cheetahs and Western Provence all enjoyed victories in the Currie Cup.
