Super Rugby Team Preview – Hurricanes

  The Hurricanes players have had a similar “warmup” to this season’s campaign as the Springboks did before their disastrous 2003 World Cup. The infamous Camp Staaldraad may not be familiar to some Kiwi’s but the Canes had a taste of it during their recent Bootcamp.  The players were subjected to 9 pm till 9 […]

Super Rugby Team Preview – Highlanders

  The Highlanders made some bold statements last season after finishing 9th in 2012, this year they’ve been somewhat quieter. An atrocious 2013 campaign saw them manage only 3 wins to be narrowly beaten to the wooden spoon by the Kings, who, by the way, beat them too…

Super Rugby Team Preview – Crusaders

  For most teams 4 semi finals and a final in the last 6 years would be impressive but for the 7-time champion Crusaders it’s panic stations. Canterbury is waiting for their team to start taking rugby seriously again but they continue to wrap their precious All Black stars in cotton wool. The National side […]

Super Rugby Team Preview – Chiefs

  The Chiefs marched on to their 2nd consecutive Super Rugby title last Season despite the loss of Sonny Bill Williams and FRS favourite Sona Taumalolo. There’s been very little change in Waikato this year with the only significant loss being Craig Clarke and Lelia Masaga. Richard Kahui is also out but he hardly played […]

Super Rugby Team Preview – Blues

  After a promising start the Blues tangled themselves up into a horrible mess last season, losing their last 6 games in a row, after sitting in a play off spot two-thirds of the way through the season. Their solution: bring back Ma’a Nonu. HUH? The All Black centre has bad karma which comes mostly from […]

Super Rugby Team Preview – Waratahs

  There’s been a mass exodus at in New South Wales as players both old and new went scampering for the hills, and in some cases just realized they were already over the hill.  Sitaleki Timani, Matt Lucas, Berrick Barnes, Tom Carter, Tom Kingston, Drew Mitchell and Lachie Turner have all abandoned ship. Management have […]

Super Rugby Team Preview – Reds

  The Reds somehow stuttered and stammered into the playoffs last year where they were given a hiding by a vengeful Crusaders outfit. The Queensland side had a lot to deal with in 2013, having injuries to key players and the British Lions tour messing with their schedule. This season, the team looks pretty settled […]

Super Rugby Team Preview – Rebels

  You might not believe us but the Rebels are getting better each season. In 2011, on debut they finished stone-last, the following season they moved up to 13th and last year they finished a record 12th overall.  The Melbourne franchise have said farewell to their  egotistical, dipsomaniacal stars James O’Connor and Kurtley Beale and […]

Fox Sports Fantasy Super Rugby

  So after spending much of last year being told of the greatness of the Fox Sports Fantasy Super Rugby game, we thought we’d give it a try this year. The game has just opened at so if you’re keen to try something different this year head over and sign up. Stricter transfer limits, more […]
