Well today was the day that my son Ashley and his U10 Norths Blue Rugby Union team were scheduled to play the curtain raiser for the Bledisloe Cup game between their heroes the Wallabies and the All Blacks. The Boys team had won a competition to play the curtain raiser, watch the Wallabies warm up, and then see the game in its entirety. Inside Rugby was also going to write up bios for the boys as part of the event. Our boys mightn’t be the best in the country, but like many young Australians they love their Rugby, so it’s hard to think of a more wonderful way to end their Season. With 15 boys on the team, and only 20 tickets available for the boys, their coaches and managers, the Parent cohort all went out and spent a few hundred dollars each buying extra tickets to see our children play their first game at Suncorp Stadium. Ashley’s uncle Quentin and cousin Aidan had also planned a surprise for Ashley by making the trip down from the Sunshine Coast to see Ashley at Suncorp Stadium. Ashley’s ...

Huge Amount At Stake For All Blacks And Wallabies: The reshuffled All Blacks can make history tonight at Sydney's grand Olympic stadium and could also go a long way to consigning one of their great rivals to history in the process. This is a test match that shapes as a defining moment for one team and a crowning one for the other - providing Steve Hansen's All Blacks can shake off the hurried late departure of veteran centre Conrad Smith for the birth of his first child. The Wallabies are desperate to win to give credence to the theory that there's a rugby renaissance in process on their side of the Tasman, and at the same time loosen the All Blacks' vice-like grip on the Bledisloe Cup. For the New Zealanders, the motivation is twofold - never give a sucker an even break and embrace the chance to rack up the game's greatest win streak at the top level. In case you haven't been counting, the New Zealanders have rattled off 17 straight test victories. One more tonight puts them alone at the mountaintop. It' ...

Ewen McKenzie says Wallabies are better prepared to tackle All Blacks 13 MINUTES AGO PHOTO Israel Folau will be a key man for the Wallabies when they face the All Blacks. GETTY IMAGES: MARK NOLAN Ewen McKenzie chuckles when he recalls the baptism of fire in international coaching he underwent last year when Australia took on New Zealand in back-to-back Tests to open the Rugby Championship. Two defeats followed and the Wallabies went on to lose the third Bledisloe Cup test to their trans-Tasman Sea rivals, all the optimism about how McKenzie might change Australian fortunes buried under the weight of All Blacks tries. Twelve months on and McKenzie is contemplating a similarly daunting start to the Rugby Championship with a home opener against the All Blacks on August 16 followed by the return in Auckland the following week. While New Zealand are no less fearsome a prospect and go into the match at Sydney's Olympic stadium looking for a record 18th successive win, McKenzie believes the year he has had worki ...

Wallabies set sights on All Blacks 22 June 2014, 08:59 The Wallabies have set their sights on the all-conquering All Blacks and retrieving the Bledisloe Cup after sweeping their three-test series against France this weekend. The Australians had too much firepower for Les Bleus, winning 39-13 in Sydney on Saturday for their seventh consecutive test win under coach Ewen McKenzie. It has been 12 years since the Wallabies last held the Bledisloe Cup, the symbol of trans-Tasman supremacy, but McKenzie said there was every reason for Australia to believe that a slice of history could be within their reach against the world champions. "There's no mortgage on these sorts of things," McKenzie told reporters on Sunday. "They've obviously dominated for a period of time and they're not going to hand it over. "We've got to go out there and win it. We've got to get everything right." Adding to the intrigue is that the All Blacks will be bidding for a record-breaking 18th consecutive test victory in Sydney on August 16 ...

All Blacks Make Five Changes For Springboks: Liam Messam and Dane Coles will be hot topics today. The pair are two of five starting changes to the All Blacks team to take on the Springboks in Auckland on Saturday. Messam, who has recovered from a calf injury suffered in the lead-up to the opening Bledisloe Cup test, has ousted Steven Luatua. With the door opened, Luatua proved with his vast array of skills he was up to the task at this level. But after three impressive tests the Blues blindside flanker has been given a spell. He will also provide locking cover from the bench, pushing Jeremy Thrush out of the side. Messam will need a strong showing to hold his challenger at bay, though with Richie McCaw out for up to five weeks the incumbent's experience could be valuable. "There were some tough decisions to be made, none more so than between Liam and Steven," All Blacks coach Steve Hansen acknowledged. "In the end we have gone for Liam's extra experience and physicality, but we also know that Steven will ...

Had to post this What professional team has the best winning percentage? Answer The greatest ever sports team in ANY sport would have to be the New Zealand All Blacks, rugby's most successful team ever. In over a hundred years of rugby, the All Blacks hold an 84% winning record against all opposition played. They have also won 74% of all test matches played, and hold a winning record against EVERY TEST NATION IN THE WORLD (including the British & Irish Lions, and the World XV). Romania (the best team in Eastern Europe), Canada (the best team in North America), Japan (the best in Asia), and other World Rugby Heavyweights Ireland, Scotland, Italy, Argentina, Samoa, and Fiji have never beaten New Zealand. The average margin when playing the All Blacks is 25-12- that is, they have scored more than twice the amount of points than all opposition combined. New Zealand is so good, that they have never been ranked lower than 3rd on the World Rankings. In 1987, they were crowned the first ever Rugby World Champions ...

Another look at our past players : Stephen James - Stephen James was a 1st grade opening bowler, a genuine outswing bowler Stephen had an outstanding record for North Sydney taking 103 wickets in four seasons from 1983/84 to 1986/87 at the average of 20.88. Stephen the season after was selected for the Wallabies at Fly - Half and went on to represent in the Bledisloe Cup & Rugby World Cup as part of his 6 test matches. Stephen is currently the Head of Rugby & Cricket at The King's School and remains a constant supporter of the club's Junior Development Activities.

For the sake of brevity we’ll leave Ken Ring out of it, but the Mayans certainly got it wrong with the suggestion that the world would be chopped liver by Christmas. And those amongst us who thought New Zealand rugby would suffer some kind of World Cup hangover were certainly wide of the mark. A Super Rugby title, IRB Sevens crown, a Rugby Championship, Bledisloe Cup and just one defeat in 14 tests for the All Blacks is not something to send you reaching for the paracetamol with one hand and the Quick-Eze with the other. Even then that sole loss to England had mitigating circumstances. Given how ill some of the players were just three days out from the Twickenham encounter it is impossible to think it wasn’t some kind of factor. They were wise not to use enough as an excuse, equally smart to let everyone know about it, and sensible to give England credit where it was due. But that loss, and the inevitable gloating that accompanied ...

Ali Williams (Blues & All Blacks lock) has announced that he will retire from International Rugby. Super 12 Title, Tri Nations, World Cup, Bledisloe, Lions Tour, NPC, Ranfurly Shield...just to name a few - Williams has been through it all and succeeded. 32-year-old Williams retires from the All Blacks as the second most capped lock of all time, playing 77 Tests in a career which spanned a decade from 2002 to 2012. He will continue to play for the Blues. Read more here:
This from an Australian Rugby fan:- An open letter to the ARU Dear Bill, Robbie and co, I write to you as a disgruntled supporter who is fed up with the politics and bureaucracy evident in your organisation over the last five years. While everyone is sick of punters throwing in their two cents regarding every selection and decision making process, I have decided to base this letter on factual evidence I have accumulated over a period of time. I would like to address a few major issues in the administration of rugby which I feel have not been fairly answered. Ticket prices- As we all know, the upcoming tour of the British & Irish Lions is a momentous occasion for all involved in Australian Rugby. My query is why you have priced passionate supporters and families out of attending these test matches? I am a university student and paid roughly $290 for a ticket to the Brisbane match and $150 for a ticket in Melbourne. Would you call it justifiable to work roughly 22 hours to watch 2 hours and 40 minutes of ru ...

Great Critiquing of members images by Denise and Fiona last night - Fiona took an interesting tack by having prerecorded step by step changes to the images showing up on the screen as she discussed why these changes could improve the images. Awesome. Also on offer was a brilliant slideshow of the Bledisloe Cup entries then finishing with a slideshow of a recent trip to Glenburn Station in the Wairarapa over a cup of tea and chat!

New zeland in south africa news Both Talksport and the Wall Street Journal blog list the Ashes among their top ten international sporting rivalries. Other inclusions are India-Pakistan clashes on the cricket field and the Bledisloe Cup rugby between New Zealand and Australia. South Africa does not feature at all. They will not be happy about that.
When Sri Lanka is in town, give me the F1, Bledisloe Cup, World Cup Qualifiers and Old Xavier Division 5 hockey.
All Blacks win adidas Team of the Year - the world's number one ranked team lived up to their mantle as Rugby World Cup Champions. They were inaugural winners of the Investec Rugby Championship – six matches, six decisive wins, racking up 57 more points scored than their nearest rival. In the process they retained the Bledisloe Cup, the Freedom Cup and in June completed a clean sweep against Ireland in the Steinlager Series (Getty Images)
Kiwi's would also hold Bledisloe cup in low corruption

Great to see (and Nathan Sharpe) end tour (and career) by winning. We lives in hope for next year's Bledisloe Cup.

It sounds a lot like the "Disrupict" that flies around at Bledisloe Cup time from someone in particular.
Hey guys... I'm trying to get a gauge of how you feel about this loss. It seems to me reading all your posts.. there's no real frustration or anger? We lost, beaten by a better team.. move on? Is that about right? I'll open up the phone lines on zb and radio sport after 8 to talk about this loss on air

Screw football... I'm going back to rugby and cricket... At least the Wallabies tied the All Blacks in the Bledisloe Cup.
After more than 85 minutes and 12 penalty goals, the Wallabies and All Blacks have been left to share the spoils in an 18-all draw in their Bledisloe Cup clash at Suncorp Stadium.
The match was the third test in the Bledisloe Cup series, which the All Blacks won courtesy of their victories in the first two tests of the Rugby Championship.
Head to head on Fox on Saturday night Bledisloe Cup got 236,000. The Sydney Derby 102,000.
What a wonderful weekend we have had, on Saturday we introduced some dear friends of ours at lunch time to Yum Cha in China Town (Fortitude Valley) Brisbane. Paul and I ended the day at the pub watching the dreadful Bledisloe Cup Game (For those who don’t know, it is Rugby Union game between New Zealand and Australia.) Then on Sunday another lovely day with two darling girls Juanita and Mel who had invited me to join them to view the last day of the ancient Egyptian Mummy exhibition at Brisbane Museum. Just Amazing I really love Egyptology and always have done since a very small child. One day I will go to Egypt and see it all -it is on my bucket list. Then we had a pub lunch at the Plough In Tavern and then a stroll around South Bank markets it was a hot day, 36 degrees and warm breeze. Called in to see Paul and our friends at Finnigan’s Chin, Keperra on the way home. Paul had just fished plumbing in a water supply for our new refrigerator which arrives on Monday. It needs water for the ice making m ...

4 TSS Old Boy Wallabies in last night's Bledisloe Cup match. Great stuff, Nathan Sharpe, Scott Higginbotham, James Slipper and Ben Tapuai.
18-all in the final Bledisloe Cup for 2012. Despite a massive injury toll for the Wallabies not a bad result against one of the best All Blacks sides of all time.
Bledisloe cup, best game of rugby I've ever seen without a try. Now that rugby. England take note!!!
Hmmm Sharen seems I have to eat my words re the rugby. Wasnt a complete smashing after all. Draw is better than a loss to the Wallabies AND NZ has the Bledisloe Cup! Woop woop!
Wallabies v All Blacks at Suncorp Stadium, 2012, Bledisloe Cup - video highlights as they occur, live streaming update style commentary and all the action of the rugby test.
So...a draw in the Rugby. Better than being flogged I suppose. However, any score divisible by three looks like they were playing Northern Hemisphere Rugby! 12 three pointers to decide a Bledisloe Cup match!?! Was the defence really good, or the attack really bad or was the referee keen to make his mark on the game?

All Blacks captain Richie McCaw has been attacked yet again off the ball in the Bledisloe Cup match against Australia at Suncorp Stadium.
Was such a pleasure watching the Bledisloe cup earlier, hardly any kicking...now for the Bulls Sharks game..typical SA rugby!!!
