Give us a Boost! on youcommentate.com

Hey fans!

Its been awhile.  We passed out  in the bar and woke up dreaming that the Wallabies were made into French toast, the Italians nearly put one on us and we just scraped in past the Boyos. But, we did manage to screw over the Soapdodgers so it wasn’t all bad.

Eh?  What did you say?

That really happened?

Oh.

Sorry for the radio silence over the course of the November internationals!  Timezones and travel plans conspired against us.  The Barstool Refs will be back bigger than ever in 2013, starting with the blockbuster Reds v Brumbs match on Sat 16 Feb.  Keep your eyes and ears peeled for updates.

In the meantime!  Our hosts over at YouCommentate have been beavering away with an overhaul to their website, and it looks awesome – check it out if you haven’t been there already.  You, dear listener, can now Boost your favourite commentators!  It means when you log into YouCommentate you’ll get the bestest new commentary from your fave commentators.

Epic Bled. #AUSvNZL #Bledisloe #BarstoolStyle

That Bledisloe was awesome – great old-school, arm-wrestle rugby with both scrambling defence and offence.

The Wobs really took it to the Cuzzy Bros – some of the new guys injected over the last couple games have really breathed new life into the Wallabies (we could call out the Honey Badger, but he don’t give a shit).  Not only did the Wobs spoil the Cuzzy Bros run at the world record for consecutive wins, they also kept the Cuzzy Bros try-less for the first time since August 2004.

Full credit as well to Richie McCaw – like every Wob fan, we love to hate his cheating ways, but the Refs have huge respect for his attempt to rally the ABs and win the game at the death.  What a champion of the sport.

Enjoy it again!  Listen to the Barstool Refs calling it as we saw it on our YouCommentate channel here.

Ah yes, now onto November, the time of the year when all the first tier teams head up into the northern hemisphere and give them a good bashing!  The Refs will be live and calling the games, but maybe not all of them – we’ll announce plans here soon.

Go Wobs!

Wobs v Cuzzy Bros 20 Oct lineups #BarstoolStyle #rugby #AUSvNZD

Tomorrow night!  The mighty Wobbly Wobs take to the Field of Dreams in Brisbanal in search of a repeat of the famous victory last year over the Cuzzy Bros.  Which team was the last to beat the Bros?  That’s right – the Wobs.  Where did they do it?  That’s right – Brisbanal.  Be afraid, Bros.

Here’s the line-up for the Wobs, Barstool style:

  1. Fat Cat
  2. Tafro
  3. Slips

  7. Whoops
  8. Cliffy

This match represents Zoolander’s farewell on Aus soil before the Farewell Tour That Never Ends departs for Europe on a four-stop visit — rumour has it that the entire Wobs team have shaved their heads in tribute.

And the Cuzzy Bros once again have the luxury of picking the same team.  Must be fucking boring to be a Bros supporter – same team, week in, week out ..

We wonder if AIG also sponsored the cloak of invisibility? #allblacks #sellout

How crap does this look?  Richie looks like he’s on the receiving end of an enema administered by Quade Cooper ..

Suddenly the QANTAS logo on the @qantaswallabies jersey looks pretty good!

Ugliest rugby player running around?

A high quality and insightful exchange amongst the esteemed rugby pundits on the Roar!

October 11th 2012 @ 8:46am
Team Taniwha said : I think that is a bit of the mark. Berrryman, Mose Tualii, Casey Laulau, Kade Poki, Rua Tipoki, Kevin Senio, Rico Gear, the big Fijian winger those name escapes me plus many more. Using Andy Hayden’s argument for the whiteness of the Crusaders is just not true.

October 11th 2012 @ 8:49am
mania said : vunibaka…easily the ugliest rugby player i’ve ever seen

October 11th 2012 @ 8:51am
Red Kev said : I see your Vunibaka and raise you a Phil Waugh.

October 11th 2012 @ 8:53am
mania said : well i got a pair of antonOliver and joeliVidiri

October 11th 2012 @ 10:58am
Qukezone… said : I see your vidiri and raise you a Kurtley Beale!!

October 11th 2012 @ 11:24am
Kane said : I see your Kurtley Beale and raise you a Kurtley Beale… with a moustache!

 

Well played!

Heroic Wobs performance in Rosario. See you in two weeks Cuzzy Bros! #ARGvAUS #AUSvNZD

A patched up team of battered, bruised and jet-lagged Wobs took on the lasers and the Gauchos in Roasrio, and came out on top. Cold Gold and Whoops had blinders, and the Badge enjoyed an admirable debut. Nice way to end the inaugural Rugby Championship!  Although everyone finished a long way behind the Cuzzy Bros, given their horrific injuries the Wobs should be satisfied.

The Refs enjoyed the game from a secret lair in suburban Swingapore.  It was family day and the call was much more lucid than other recent examples!  Catch it again here on YouCommentate.

The Wobs (and the Refs) now enjoy a week off after a long and emotional tournament before reconvening for the third Bled against the Cuzzy Bros on Sat 20 October.  The Wobs are burning for redemotion and they have a helluva chance – a win in Brisvegas will spoil the Cuzzy Bros pursuit of the world record for consecutive international wins.

If you’re in Singapore, come on down to the Prince of Wales at 51 Boat Quay for the full Barstool experience.   If you’re elsewhere, the  Refs will be calling all the action, LIVE on YouCommentate, Barstool Style.  Follow us on Twitter for details as and when they firm up.

You don’t scare us …

After the spanking at the hands of the bitches, the Wobs have dragged their battered bodies over to Rosario for the final match of the TRC.  If the Wobs can take it to Los Gauchos and take an unanticipated win then they will finish second in the tournament – a loss could see them finish last with la cuchara de madera.  Here’s the line-up for the Wobs, Barstool style:

Los Gauchos have brought a bunch of blokes that we still have never heard of.  Honestly you could put these blokes in a line-up with the Spice Girls and we wouldn’t be able to pick them out.  Here’s their line-up:

That was horrific. Bring on Los Gauchos. #RSAvAUS #ARGvAUS #rugby

Well that was pretty damn horrific.  The Wobs were clearly outclassed by their bitches, the Meateaters, and finished the game with 14 players as a result of a series of major injuries to key players.  Damn Meateaters.  So that means the Wobs have won five of the last six matches against them – they’re still our bitches.

But if you thought the Wobs looked a bit ropey, you should have heard our commentary!  On reflection, starting festivities at 4pm in anticipation of starting commentary for the game at 11pm was ambitious.  The stream is available here – thankfully it cut off after 26 minutes, due to network issues.  We were so ripped we didn’t even notice.

So new week, new challenges for our Wobs.  They’ll be in unfamiliar territory, up against Los Gauchos in Rosario – the Wobs are struggling to field 22 fit blokes for what should be an epic match.  The  Refs will be calling all the action, LIVE on YouCommentate from an as-yet-undetermined secret location somewhere in Singapore, Barstool Style.  Follow us on Twitter for details as and when they firm up.

Olé!
