    Perth is the middle Test from memory, and there are direct flights between NZ and Perth. They probably could manage it if they treated the whole as a tour, seeing as WA is probably better than NZ at...

    I just can't see RA having anything like the stomach to do what is necessary though.

    Much, much harder way to go, but I think the only way Australian rugby is ever going to get anything resembling...

    One big difference though...that rust was being knocked off BoP in a warm-up match for the M10C that will keep their best players busy for the next few months. It was being knocked off the Force...

    Was chatting with a BoP supporter after the game, and his opinion was that where the Force was clearly superior was in structure. Can't help feeling that might say something about the main focus in...

    TBH, that is probably expecting a little much for a random friendly. If it were actually leading somewhere, towards a real NRC replacement perhaps, there might have been some merit in streaming the...

    I'd have to disagree. Don't care much either way, but thought Australia made all the play for three quarters of that match. Had they not butchered most everything and engaged in some baffling...

    Good signing, but have to say just slightly disappointed on a philosophical level that he didn't choose to play for the Drua. They need to be competitive at a whole new level, and Mataele had that...

    I also assumed it would be wing, but X's point would stand. We've had League wingers cross before, and they get exposed on defense and positioning. For all they were thrown straight into the...

    I'd certainly agree that is something that is required, and especially one that understands hitting gaps and weak arms. Just as long as they also understand support, both not running away from it and...

    TBH, if he is 31, I'm kind of wondering myself. A year or two to acclimatise doesn't seem to leave much pay-off.

    I agree with that. In the absence of an NRC, and frankly even as what should be an integral part of one, Australian rugby should have a well structured and much commented program for these age...

    He was indeed very careful to not call it an NRC. I'd be pretty cautious assuming that is what he is talking about when he says "second tier structure".
