    Well done, people. A kid asks a question and you manage to turn it into a pissing contest between anonymous internet know-alls. Well done. Pat yourselves on the back.

    Not necessarily. What matters is how you work with your team. Matt Giteau is great and quite small. He plays at 12 - for the Wallabies.

    KiwiJames offers good advice. Further to that advice, I frequently post my basic speed program here. It's 2x5x20m followed by an agility drill (the Illinois drill is my favourite). These can be...

    If you want to get to the next level, tackling and defensive positioning is paramount. Something coaches struggle to deal with is a great attacking fly-half who they have to hide in defence. That is...

    He's talking about Union. Americans just don't understand why League is the wrong word to use.

    Come on, Nik. You know Australian League players can't write!

    Seriously, the difference is constant playing in wide open spaces, all day, every day from the age you can walk.

    Soak in white vinegar overnight before washing.

    The particles that cause the stench are alkali. The acetic acid neutralises it. At least that's my understanding.

    Whatever the result, it was the final we've waited 28 years for. The best team of all time won. Now, we've got to work on winning some Bledisloes before we get another shot in Japan.
