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

Reds starting 2 flankers in the row.

I've seen it work in subbies.

If I'm the Force, I'm trying to beat the shit out of the Reds up front.

Ideally its the Warriors fan base that gets cannibalised. Auckland is a city of 2 million people, and the Blues struggle to get more than 10K people to games.

Politics shouldn't be an issue. My understanding is that the Pasifika Moana team has no formal links to the Samoan or Tonga national unions.
