Tough game for the Blues. Their form has been great for a few games so feels like its time for their form to fall apart again.

If we can avoid a red and have not too many yellow's then we might sneak a win.

Reds love a bit of niggle. I wonder if they'll aim to rile up the lesser Ioane brother.

Argentina tried that last year and failed after they had some success with Frizzell.

Its much more likely that we will get a red card from Ofa or Alex Hodgman.

I'd be okay with that.

With Fraser as the referee we could also see a Reds player sent off for looking at someone the wrong way or, depending on how Fraser is feeling, not carded for decapitating someone.

Should not the home team be named first? Reds vs Blues?

Yeah. If the Reds can have 2 I’m willing to nominate Hegarty and Liam Wright.

This is easily solved by Reds fans starting a thread first for home games. It's two days out and no thread was created.

Massive game for the blues, win this and they should make the final.

Reds coming off a win, did that build confidence or the fact they almost got run down after a red, a yellow and a trip to townsville are they sitting crying into their xxxx

They could have created it yesterday to beat me too it. The Crusaders fans made theirs on Sunday.

I’m not going to lie, I am hoping the Reds can keep this game close, if they get a win well... I won’t be unhappy.

I don’t even feel dirty for saying it.

Oddly enough, I struggled to find the amusing side. :x

(And also struggled re Thomas’s statement about the search function being borked, altho’ others have said similar. Generally speaking, it works for me just fine using Safari in either MacOS or iOS. The thing is to ignore the larger magnifying glass near the top of the index page and instead use the smaller one to the right of the New Topic ‘button’. Yep, getting text into the all-but invisible text frames is an arsepain but if one persists then results start appearing.

F’rinstance, I searched on ‘borked’ and found Thomas’s post quick enough and ditto earlier uses of the word, including one by me).

Value in a few of these games with the Aussies at very generous odds.

If the Reds and Brumbies forwards can dominate then it should be goodnight nurse for both Kiwi opposition teams.

You heard it here during the middle of deliberations.

I've never wanted the Reds to win a game of Rugby more. As a Crusaders fan I need one of the Hurricanes or the Blues to lose a game. Pronto.

Yep, JOC's definitely out. Hegarty to 10, Stewart to 15 apparently. Probably not too many other options I suppose, although it wouldn't have surprised me to see BBBT give Kalani the 10 jersey ...

Every single member of the panel picked ‘Latho v2.0’ as the starting WB fullback.

Alas, Flook didn’t make the cut

Dangerous tackle penalty against Stewart converted. The first and only dangerous thing Stewart has ever done on a footy field.

They have started slow in all their games in this comp only to run away with it as it goes on. Patience man.
