    Like your tipping comps don't ya?

    Also i can't see this fixing many issues when a lot of top club rugby players have choosen not to play as they wont get paid enough for amount of time they miss from their regular jobs. Basically just going to be an U23 comp, with a couple older fringe Super 14 players.

    Go Vikings...how long to we all think this going to last though? I’d say if we don't win the World Cup, ARU won't be able to afford to foot the bill.

    I'll have a bash at the tipping, if only to give geg some company.

    Hoping it stays in place for as long as there are the AFL, NRL and A-League.

    If run proper it could be self efficient in a couple seasons time. The big issue would be to get the support of grass roots Rugby fans, who are still pissed of Club rugby in Sydney and Brisbane, has been put further down the ladder. I guess it all really depends if its run as a makeshift comp, which basically are some glorified trails for Super 14 contracts. Or if its proper competition where the clubs actually mean something to fans.

    True, only time will tell though and in the meantime I'll be supporting the local side .

    Rebels holding themselves well versus a strong Vikings at the moment. 13-10 at half time though it could've easily been more in favour of Canberra.


    Looks as though it was a great match over in Perth last night. Wish it was telecast.

    Am liking the experimental rules too.

    Gun effort by the Rebels to win that against a team that were always tipped to be favourites in the match. Croft was everywhere and Murphy looked a million bucks when he came on. Melbourne really dominated the second half, though there was a lot of exciting play from both sides.

    Rebels 2 from 2 and the 'surprise packet' according to 'everyone'.

    Interesting competition so far in that Melbourne is indeed the only team unbeaten after just 2 rounds. Looks like it'll be an extremely close competition.

    They're looking promising atm, but it's still early days and a lot of the sides are fairly close. Wish they showed every match rather than a select few each week.

    TBH your lucky ABC are showing it at all, from what i hear no one is watching it. Just the same people that watch club rugby.
