Just noticed Higgers isn't playing, assume he's injured?

My prediction: Reds to stay with the Highlanders for 60 minutes before they break away and score some tries after a controversial yellow card to a Reds player.

stick with me on this one, apparently he's fit but wasn't deemed good enough to start!

It actually makes sense. I don't know if you saw him in the trial but he's hobbling around like a man with dodgy back and knees. I could see it last year, but he still played his off-season in Japan. He just doesn't look up to it.

Big call picking the young fellah on the bench ahead of him, but in reality Wright isn't a nailed down starter so they need to keep the pressure on him to perform.

I'm more than happy for him to not start if he isn't up to it. I was just wary he had also been caught having nose beers or something like that.

That's looking like a very strong Landers XV, with probably only Parkinson and Squire missing from a 'First XV.' It's interesting too that the legend, Marty Banks, is on the bench. Surprised though that Josh McKay hasn't had a run yet? He could be the next Bender. Gatland hasn't shown his face either? And has the Barracuda gone fishing?

Buckman only joined the team back from Japan in the last week or so. Probably getting up to speed with calls etc.

The onus is typically on the home team to start a match thread. I can only assume they were too busy out checking their moonshine stills or fucking their sisters.

No, that was in Queensland. Just outside the town of Monto. Also, the guy was a Kiwi.

SAANZAAARGLFARCAN are a pack of rude pricks for scheduling the first Reds game of the season at a time when a fella is flying home. No wonder everyone hates them. :x

Yeah, the pack and 11 to 14 look decent. 9 and 10 are the worry though.

But I'm with you, for some odd reason I'm feeling optimistic about this upcoming season. :thumbup:

(expecting this optimism to be dashed after full time tonight)

Half time will be soon enough to have that confirmed.

Unless BBB has them in superfit mode because they'll be doing a lot of defending with a dodgy kicking game

I just want the bastards to play some good, tough rugby. I think the cattle are there but they do need a class 10. Samu - Petaia centre pairing has me turgid as all hell
