Re: Force v. Reds GOTY

It will be interesting to whether Rennie plays JOC or Toomua at 10. In the recently release list of players he's interested in, Toomua I think is at 10 and JOC at 12 but that can easily change.

Re: Trans-Tasman comp to replace Super Rugby in 2021

Yeah she definitely had some good things.

So what's going to happen to NRC going forward. There's no mention of it in these new plans. I think continuing NRC would be better than a national cloub comp where talent is so thinly diluted. I say keep NRC and start a national club comb as well.

Re: OFFICIAL Brexit Thread

Some in the EU fan club are pathetic and get a hissy fit at the suggestion that a UK negotiated trade deal might actually go further than an EU negotiated trade deal. EU trade deals need to satisfy all member states and need to be ratified by them UK don't have that problem.

I haven't seen a lot of Lance but I've always thought of him as a solid player rather than a standout player.

I wouldn't mind seeing JOC at 10 and Toomua at 12 but I'm not sure why so many people think that it should be like that and not the other way around.

Toomua has been excellent for Rebels at 10 this year in most games. Have you guys seen the games where he's played 10?

Jordan Uelese
Trevor Hosea
Pone Faamausili
Rob Leota
Rob Valetini
Pete Samu
Hunter Paisami

Fereti Saaga has also played a handful of games for Rebels.

All forwards apart from Paisami.
