All Blacks Northern Tour

Welcome back…and hello again, we’ve had a little holiday!

  • All Blacks inflict damage

    A series clean sweep and a devastating first half by the All Blacks in the final test, may have have inflicted England with deep psychological wounds.

  • Wallabies to ignore Steve Hansen

    Wallaby coach Ewen McKenzie is expecting some verbal jibes from the All Blacks ahead of their opening Rugby Championship encounter in August, but has urged his players to shut them out.

  • Wales fire warning shot

    Wales have shown they may be a serious force at the next World Cup after coming perilously close to defeating the Springboks in South Africa.

  • England JWC champions again

    England have successfully defended their Under 20 world crown by defeating South Africa 21-20 at Eden Park.

  • Super 15 to become Super 18

    The future of Super Rugby has been unveiled and it is going to see the number of teams jump to 18 and yet the length of the competition shorten by one week.

  • Noakes heading to London

    Blues first-five Chris Noakes has announced he’s joining London Irish on a two-year deal after this Super Rugby campaign.

  • All Blacks get their anchor man

    Owen Franks has delivered a major boost by signing with the New Zealand Rugby Union and Crusaders for another three years.

  • Lomu named as JWC ambassador

    Former All Black Jonah Lomu has been named as ambassador of the Under 20 Junior World Championship to be hosted in New Zealand next month.

  • Benji or Blues – who is to blame?

    So Benji has gone already. The highly paid NRL convert only lasting eight games before he decided to jump ship and head back to league.

  • Anscombe in Gatland’s sights

    To compound the Blues’ dramas this week, former heir apparent to the franchise’s throne Gareth Anscombe has become the number one target for Wales.

  • Hammett linked with Cardiff

    If Anscombe does shift to Wales – he’s being chased by the Cardiff club – he may find he’s being coached by current Hurricanes supremo Mark Hammett.
