Fiji would maybe be world champions if they had access to all the talent they’ve produced world wide

Vunivalu is like a thoroughbred racehorse.

Not to mention the kimbo slice squad in the forwards
They would be if they had good tight 5 forwards but they don't.
They produce good locks, no?

I’ll give you the front row
Can't think of world class Fijian locks.
Samo?

Reds are playing poorly now.

They'll leak more points.

Yup this game is not over.
They need to tighten up and not try and score off every touch.

That’s a yellow
Tough one. He may have been in a position to to catch the ball but he didn’t actually contest it. Dangerous play for mine.
When WR started cracking down on taking men out in the air I argued that the scenario we just saw shouldn't be penalised with a card as one player has placed himself to take the ball...

and I was shouted down as the Laws are the Laws.

I guess the interpretation has changed then...

right?
A refs interpretation is just that. Coulda gone either way.

Needed to use the bench earlier.

Thorn is not always the sharpest with it.

But I'd say they'll hold on.

That Nongor fella has been a complete passenger. I remember one guy (probably Towny) talking him up a while ago.

That's it, a valiant effort, but the Chiefs are the first Kiwi team to crack.

Congratulations Reds.

Agreed. He made at least 2 of their tries with personal skill
