Re: Wallabies 2020 thread

McReight is the one. I started the year as a skeptic. He’s a ridiculous player, a natural leader and extremely well spoken. He’s not your usual candidate. Australia will love him. Maybe Tupou would be awesome, but I’m not sure he’s done the job before so it seems pretty random. Anyway, I jumped on ...

Good call. Too much of an ego ruined his talent.
Yeah, he could have played 150 tests for the Wobs. Still has a few years to go so may well end up with 70 or 80 caps anyway though.

Re: Super Rugby and Coronavirus

Perhaps they'll continue with the games, but in closed stadiums. I believe the AFL are considering this option, and probably other sports too.

Re: Reds vs Bulls: MATCH THREAD: Sat 14 March

Teams updated in the OP. Bryce Hegarty on the wing for the Reds. Assume this is to get someone with half a chance of kicking a goal onto the field, but seems a bit odd. I suppose he'll spend a fair bit of time at fullback though. Not sure about the forward changes either. With no Smith or Rodda, its...

First order of business for the Reds, find a kicking coach. If we already have one, shoot him and get another.
