Re: Force v. Reds - Greatest Match of All Time (predicted)

Well done, Force, deserved to make the final. Beat the Rebels away from home and then beat the Reds at home. No argument there. Hey Reds, where did you find that teenage reserve halfback? No presence at all. A great big state and thats what you find. Hopeless. Thorn selected him, so must be a Kiwi.

TK shouldn't be on the field- should have been red. Lifted the legs beyond vertical, dropped him on his head/neck = red.

The pontificating of the commentary team trying to justify the yellow is pathetic.
