September 17, 2011 1 comment

The 2011 Rugby World Cup is well under way in New Zealand, and we’ve sent our Chief Rugby Analyst David Shipton along to cover the entire tournament for us (well… not really. He lives there.)

RWC Days 4 + 5 + 6

We have had a fair bit to be excited about over here in NZ. The rugby action has been good for the most part, with games being well attended and played in good spirits. There have been a couple of good ones to boot and plenty of well worked tries as well. We move more into the second round, with some of the bigger teams playing over the weekend.  Firstly though, here is a look at what has happened with days 4, 5 and 6. Read more…

Welcome to the Drawing Board, Who’s Playing Who?’s one stop rugby shop. By the time you are reading this, all the World Cup squads would have been announced and we will be digesting just who has been picked and dropped, who is lucky and who is not and who should or shouldn’t be there.  There are certainly some interesting selections, some have shocked most pundits and others that you could have bet your bottom dollar on. Let’s kick things off with some news. Read more…

The Drawing Board (10/8/11)

Welcome to the Drawing Board, Who’s Playing Who?’s one stop rugby shop. A month yesterday (which was my birthday!!) to the Rugby World Cup and frantic last minute preparations for the teams involved are being made. Some are resting players, others are playing their top sides, and some are not even playing at all. World Cup squads need to be announced the Tuesday before the final Tri Nations match up between the All Blacks and the Wallabies, which gives them a match each to get their respective squads right. Firstly though, here are some interesting Rugby World Cup stats. Read more…

The Drawing Board (1/6/11)

Welcome to another installment of The Drawing Board, Who’s Playing Who?’s one stop rugby shop. In a major scoop for us, we have managed to bribe officials and the Rugby World Cup will now be hosted by Who’s Playing Who!! Only jokes, we don’t accept bribes in rugby.  Speaking of which, it’s been another important week in the rugby world. The major European domestic leagues have wrapped up (with only France still going) whilst it was a very important week in Super Rugby. On top of that there was the last round of the Sevens going on in Edinburgh. It’s becoming an important time for World Cup hopefuls, with not a lot of rugby left to put up a case for World Cup places. Read more…

The end of the Ponting era?

March 25, 2011 Leave a comment

So Australia’s dominant World Cup Era is over, and we’ve been shafted from the tournament in the quarter-finals by hosts and favourites India. But what does this really mean for Australian cricket? Is this the final nail in the coffin for this dominant group? If not, should it be? And most importantly, where does this leave skipper Ricky Ponting, who’s fighting hundred gave the side a chance? Is this his end…… Read more…
