    Wish I could credit my tipping of the Rebels on some in-depth analysis but the reality is that I'm sick of being sucked in my a bunch of pretenders who either dont turn up every week (e.g. Hurricanes and Blues), squander countless opportunities through indiscipline (e.g. Lions) or are just ****ing soft (e.g. Waratahs whom I only tipped because I hate the Brumbies)

    In summary, it had **** all to do with anything remotely resembling analysis

    BTW, have to admit that it was refreshing to see the Reds game played in bright sunlight

    Much preferred it to a night game

    Might be being a bit harsh on the Blues given they've made an excellent beginning to the season, though I can't disagree too much about your comments about the Canes and Tahs. Didn't see the Reds match though I also like watching rugby during the day, particularly in the sun. Sounded like another pretty comprehensive victory for the Reds.

    QC's crossfield in-goal kick to Ioane the best nearly try since KB in Europe last year.

    SBW is such a beast of a player - 17 stone, quick, amazing skills and he's learning

    Undoubtedly has the potential to be one of the best ever

    Remarkable game and the Canes were 17 zip up after 20 as well. The Rebels are truly crap but the Canes are so unpredictable, even more-so than the Chiefs and both seem to go to pieces when the going gets tough.

    Williams gets all the credit but his partner in crime isn't too bad as well, Robbie Fruean. He is another brick ****house. The two of them had over 15kg each on the Sharks centre pairing yesterday and were heavier by 10kg+ than the Sharks loose forward, Keegan Daniel. It was only Willem Alberts, who tips the scales at 120kg () who could match up to the Saders physicality.

    Nice sight in NZ but itís a wee bit dangerous in Aus. Remember seeing the Reds in a Super 14 day game at Suncorp circa Feb/early March and it was so hot, the game was reduced to walking pace by the 30th minute, the players were completely gone.

    Too right. Robbie Fruean looks like he could be an exceptional player. Can't believe Wellington let him slip through their fingers.

    Yarp it gets cooking inside suncorp when the sun comes out, was alright on saturday just gone and will be really nice for the saders in may, but scheduling day games in feb/early march in brisbane is just stupid...the players dropped about 5-6 kegs each in this years match v the force.
