Actual footage of Brad Thorn entering Ballymore for the Sunday debriefing.

Big things expected this coming weekend (i.e. at least one 5 pointer).

Hopefully Odendaal is over his niggle and Gelant gets a good training week in. Very short on match fitness.

You guys will probably end up pulling yourselves inside out before this season's over.

The Reds have already smashed this year’s KPI of 0 wins. After just 2 rounds even.

Everything else is just sweet sweet sugar on top.

Heh.

I watched the game with my wife on Friday and she asked me why I didn't like him and then he dropped the ball cold for the 18th time that match and she started screaming "CATCH THE BALL WITH YOUR HANDS INSTEAD OF YOUR FARKEN ARMPITS YOU DICKHEAD..."

Dude seriously can only carry the ball if someone duct tapes it to his chest.

He was senfarkensational. Just reward for the Reds after all the junior development time they've poured into him. :nod:

He was second only to the big Jaapie prop that the Reds also poured loads of development effort into.

It's funny, y'know ...

that big Yarpie prop played 1st XV for Toowoomba Grammar School in 2007 ...

... and in the centres !! :lol: (he only really focused on the front row from the age of 18) .

He played for GPS club in Brisbane before going to the Ponies.

Twin bro played for Queensland U18 and Australian Schoolboys in 2007.

He is doing a nice job deputising for Owen Franks - we will probably cap him this year to keep him out of the wallabies frame. Cheers!

I watched him enter the ruck from the side about 20 times on Saturday, so he’s got Franks technique down nicely. :thumbup:

I hoisted no petard here. I simply had the audacity to, once again it grieves me (grieves me) to say, question some Australian whinging about a player supposedly breaking the Laws of the game. A game, it should be noted, that did not involve an Australian team.

Nah, mate. They're Aussies when it suits. Shrek and GS go both ways; like AC and DC ... AC/DC.
