Musings On The Week In Sport...

Just waiting for confirmation today from Robert Finch that Gavin Badger had a terrific game last night and that those complaining about the 19 penalties, three sin-binnings and the send-off of Jason Ryles are nothing but whingers and sore losers.

The two-horse race between Casey Stoner and Valentino Rossi at Laguna Seca was some of the best MotoGP racing I've seen. Unfortunately for Stoner, Rossi came home in front, showing his champion qualities under extreme pressure.

The Wallabies put in a top performance to knock over the Springboks. Sure it wasn't a high-scoring, end to end affair but the battle in the forwards was great stuff. It was a relief to see the improvements in our scrum and line-out and it was Al Baxter's least shite performance ever, though it will take a lot more than that to forgive past hopelessness (i.e trying to run around the winger on the last play of the match whilst in field goal range and down by two against England in our World Cup quarter-final). Under Robbie Deans the Wallabies look much more organised and structured and seem to have a game plan and objective, all of which were sorely lacking under "Knuckles". Seriously, what did we ever do to deserve "Knuckles" as coach?!

That was about all I was able to catch this week as I was away visiting the in-laws...Stay classy WHAB readers.
