Comment from ALLY Age 13[edit]

My parents met matt giteau in canberra at a resturant and he gave ME an autograph when he was having tea i thought that that was very kind of him and that he was not even rude enough 2 say that he didn't want to because he was having tea. Does anyone else have a story like that that they would like to share Because if you do i would be very interested. ALLY Age 13

#Half-backs or #9. Halfback?[edit]

Giteau has played three positions:

  • Inside centre #12
  • Fly-half #10 e.g. Wallabies 2009 & 2010
  • Halfback #9 e.g. Wallabies at RWC

These positions map logically to three parts of the Rugby_union_positions page:

  • 3.2.2 13. Outside centre & 12. Inside centre
  • 3.3.1 10. Fly-half
  • 3.3.2 9. Scrum-half

However, an initial link from Halfback was changed to Halfback.

  • How is this change (from #9. Halfback to #Half-backs) justified?
  • The ambiguity is that #Half-backs includes two positions (Fly-half #10, and Halfback #9)

Mighty short man we've got there[edit]

1.78cm tall? Umm... yeah, I think that's probably wrong, it's probably supposed to be either 1.78m or 178cm. Anyone want to double check that? --StarkRG 07:35, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

Gits' salary[edit]

Giteau's deal is worth AU$1.5 million a season (3-year $4.5 million contract) making him the highest paid footballer in any code. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/rugby_union/international/4935948.stm 124.148.97.101 10:39, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Fourie Du Preez Tackle[edit]

I'm South African, and not a huge Giteau fan (don't know much about him) but this was ridiculous:

"The worst of the three cards by far was for a horrendous ‘tackle’ by Matt Giteau on scrumhalf Fourie du Preez. Certainly one of the worst passages of foul play in the 2009 international rugby scene."

So I tried to make it more neutral. If he gets cited for it then maybe we should expand on it.


God, one of my countrymen has made it even worse now. Give up. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.245.139.18 (talk) 15:51, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

I read what was here (infamous "Yellow Wallabies"), and took the liberty of deleting it. Someone needs to give this article a major overhaul, as Giteau is one of the pre-eminent players in rugby union. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.89.190.7 (talk) 06:05, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
