RuggaMatrix International 088 – Altitude Schmaltitude

The All Blacks are Tri Nations champions again and we look back at last week’s epic clash at Soccer City.

South Africa will host the Wallabies this weekend and they’ll be hurting.

Loftus is a fortress for the Springboks and Australia will need to pull off a mighty upset and overcome a losing streak at altitude which stretches back almost 50 years.

Our special guest commentator filling in for Les Kiss is Marc Stcherbina.

Our other special guest is dropped Wallabies prop Al Baxter and now fledgling blogger.

Despite playing the best rugby of his career in 2010 he hasn’t featured in Australian selection.

He tells us that he’s still motivated and capable of playing in next year’s world cup.

We cover all the big news in the northern hemisphere as well.


What is the deal with South Africa’s altitude and the Wallabies?

We look in-depth at the subject with Ewen McKenzie and ask is it fact or fiction?

The All Blacks finished stronger in Soweto, making a mockery of claims that the South Africans have an unfair advantage.

It’s another masterclass from one of the game’s great thinkers.
