I'm pumped.

Sold out GIO (only 6k, max govt will allow :lol: )

Real key battles that may help decide gold jerseys, particularly in the back row.

I like the Reds - nice team to watch and attacking approach.
But before seeing the teams i'm thinking Brums to win (home advantage, and more experience in finals)

Talk of Paisami coming in at 13 and Petaia moving to the wing. Should be a good attack if that's the case.

Whoever wins will always be remembered as the true 2020 Super Rugby Champion. What kind of loser competition doesn't have a final?

It felt wrong to put the AU in there as there's only 1 Super Rugby final this year.

As usual, the 2 finalists represent the best for the 4 nations.

Kata to 13 May be happening from the Brums side.

Bit of a shock if TK is dropped (again).

What about Ikitau?
Kata stinks.

Also, does that mean that Ben Wright is marking Petaia?

13. Paisami
14. Petaia

Paisami isn’t as good a centre as JP, but that looks very tasty. Big drop in defence - JP axes anything that moves when he’s at 13 whilst Paisami will axe someone, but not necessarily the one with the pill.

Big challenge for Lolesio, starting after a longish break, up against the best backrow in the competition.

I was under the impression from certain posters here that Valetini is the greatest 6 on Earth; WTF is he doing on the bench?

Also White dropped too. Here's hoping he comes on the last 15 and does a Bled box kick.

Brumbies still clear favourites though.

He is, I assume he's on the bench so he can crack skulls as we take it up a gear and pants you in the second half.

You're right! We should put Tupou and JP on the bench to combat this.

:lol:

Realistically, I think it's because McCaffery is better over the ball, and we're trying to counter your 6/7 combo.

Plus, he is very creative in attack. Comes from his club upbringing with the Mighty Woods!!

I'm excited. I've had a few too many beers already though, so my usual razor sharp match analysis may be off kilter. Sorry in advance.

'It's Len Ikitau I fear the most.'

I think Ikitau should fear Paisami.

Go the Mighty Reds!
