Not watching but following the updates, this “competition” is retarded.

I will not bet against the Sadists until the final whistle - OK, now I will.

well, the Saders now have a very very small chance of making the final.. So they changed the face of this tournament.

Great game to watch and although a little disappointed nothing can compare to the season we have had. Ennor’s drop with the line open and ritchie missing touch twice was the swinging of the game.

On ya Landers get up there and give it everything. :thumbup:

A victory that feels like a defeat. Some great rugby played by both teams at times, but so much frustration. Little moments that cost the final.

Nope, or the marginal Tamaiti Williams no try or the marginal Fainga'anuku no try. It is a game of cm at times.

Realistically defence cost us more than any no tries.

We were always going to be able to score 40-50. Conceding 26 makes a 33 point margin very difficult.

Rebs did some good bits, Oz rugby ain’t buried yet. Was about to say Reece sounds a bright one and then he mentions the poor kid.

To be honest we played headless chicken rugby.

I know we needed to win by 33, but there is still room to clear your 22, not force every offload, and set scrums/lineouts in the opposition 22. Our lineout drive was all over them but we kept taking quick taps?
