Well the time is nigh; the first game of Bledisloe 2018 is upon us. There’s much gnawing of knuckles over the possibility that Australia can pull this one clearly out of their collective arses and get a 1-0 lead in the series. I watched the Amazon series about the Lions tour and the 2017 season and you have to...
Wallabies Defeat Springboks Yes, that's in the headline, THE WALLABIES WIN". It was a little bit of a messy affair with the Wallabies and Springboks falling over themselves rather than putting great pressure on the other team to force them into the same set of mistakes.

One cannot yet determine the veracity of these assertions (because, of course, they are predictions, not matters of fact) but one...
Diatribe #8 – It’s a RWC Year. These are years like no other. The pundits and soothsayers will be out in full. People, like myself, will be putting pen to paper (figuratively) and creating YouTube content with chaotic abandon as they attempt to predict the outcome of RWC 2019. I'll...
