TBF it’s the Force. Would just want confirmation with a good game against one of the biggies.

Genuine question. Has anyone ever seen Nick Frisby pass the ball?

I don’t get it

You’re behind, you’ve got no ball. You’ve shown no capability to win ball in open play. So you kick it away?

Could have almost chalked that down for another try assist for Hegarty.

Oh, wait, there it is.

But that was the wrong call, wasn’t it?

Not good from the Force, but glad the Reds didn't take the foot off the pedal.

Well done Reds.

Impressive, co-ordinated, consistent. Good stuff

Feel for the Force. Were in it for 50 mins. Score didn’t do them justice

Bit like 4th grade vs 1st grade. Quality athletes and some x-factor players make the difference.

Enjoyable game all the same. Well done SRAu

Ditto. Nice to see the Reds win well but can't say I savour the Force getting belted.

Force have battled well but this game was always lying in wait.

Reds look very well drilled despite the paucity in opposition.

It will be interesting to whether Rennie plays JOC or Toomua at 10. In the recently release list of players he's interested in, Toomua I think is at 10 and JOC at 12 but that can easily change.

I don't think that's fair. What it highlighted is that the top 4 teams in Aussie rugby are fairly even, while the scratch Force team shorn of their best players has done its best, but has been found out deep in the comp.

Highlighted the lack of money in Australian rugby. We produce a shedload of good players, too many of them are pinched by overseas Unions or the NRL.

One of the many Kiwi indentured labour over here, we need them though for the jobs we wont do. It would be easier for them to get through their time here if they made up a song or something,
Something like this,
I've been working on the railroad
All the live long day
I've been working on the railroad
Just to pass the time away
Can't you hear the whistle blowing
Rise up so early in the morn
Can't you hear the whistle blowing
Dinah, blow your horn
Dinah won't you blow
Dinah won't you blow
Dinah, won't you blow your horn
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow your horn
Someone's in the kitchen with dinah
Someone's in the kitchen i know

Gents - you’re too easy, sensitive little souls (except grevie and his drinking problem).

On the broader level the lack of quality at the force is good evidence for the tosh about a PI/Hawaii team in NZ.

Pretty sure Kiwi Greg is a lawyer who lives in Mosman. He's hardly the seasonal fruit-picking stereotype you are mocking in your post.

I was unemployed- living off the system - until two weeks ago if that helps with the stereotype grevie.

I actually did go to Auckland law school - But dropped out after one week.
