Maybe they just don`t like Brad Thorn.

Reds trio refuse to take pay cut, stood down by QRU

We currently have plenty of distributors. JOC Toomua TK ( dare i say it Beale ) and before that Foley. We need to find a playmaker. Lolesio or Harrison need a shot at Wallaby 10 immediately.

Will Australia leave New Zealand out in the cold?

My intended gaffe reply to Sinclair ” Waikato Chiefs ” really wound up the Kiwis especially Rebes. Next time i will add a 😛 next to it. I`ll know better in future as it may lead to Kiwi Faux Outrage.

Rebes in future i will refer to them on the Roar as ” The Gallagher Waikato Hamilton Taranaki Thames Valley Counties Manukau Kings Country Bay of Plenty Chiefs “. That would be accurate and correct right ? Go the St George Bank Suncorp Stadium Milton Brisbane Queensland Reds 👍 😂

Super Rugby on hold: Early-season report card

TWAS when they play most of their games at Waikato Stadium, i`ll tell casual fans they are from Waikato.That`s accurate.

I didn’t say this forum wasn’t Brett. Sinclair brought up the Waikato bit not me.

Well i’m a Queenslander that works in Brisbane City not regional QLD and we have many casual interest bandwagon Reds fans still left over from 2011. I work in a Building with 1100 co workers. We have tipping comps involving 2 codes etc etc. It used to be 3 codes but no one cares about the 3rd code anymore, but most still have a soft spot for the Reds as Brisbane town went bananas in 2011.Everyone was talking about the Reds then.Not so much now.
Auckland Waikato Otago Wellington and Christchurch will do mate 👍 Good-day. 🏉 🏉

You don’t know many casual Aussie rugby supporters then mate.You have to spell it out for them or they don’t care and wont figure anything out.Trust me, i work with a lot of random Rugby fans who are rabid NRL and AFL folk.

And when i do tell them the Chiefs are from New Zealand i`m not going to go into specifics of what exact area they are from. Waikato will suffice for them. Thanks 👍

Yeah i understand they are not just Waikato, but if you asked a random casual Aussie where the Waikato Chiefs Rugby team come from they`d most likely say
” Oh must be in New Zealand ” You ask them where the Chiefs Rugby team come from they`d be like umm errr umM Exeter ? Kansas City? Fiji ? Tonga ?

Mitcho that’s a tough question. It may seem a cop out on my behalf but for me personally if Hooper plays it`s a straight swap for Wright. Samu is in my team on the bench definitely. ( Great form all year) To put it this way, if Hooper was in at 7 i wouldn’t be unhappy, if he wasn’t in at 7 i wouldn’t be unhappy. I hope you get that. 😂

Just when the Reds win brilliantly, Super Rugby is suspended...

” On current form and availability, for a test match played next weekend ”

I understand HJH is only there because JP Smith and AAA are injured.

I may have Banks at 14 DHP 15 and Harry Wilson is unlucky, but does he take Samus spot? Close call but probably not yet.
Otherwise agree with the 23 if test was this weekend.

New OrleansKatrina was a disgrace wasn’t it.Third world country within a first world country.

Australian sport in doubt as government advises against large public gatherings - from Monday

I love a durrie too.

😂 😂 that’s why i bought them. We started off well with Lukhans break for a try.Called back for a forward pass, then as we slowly got carved up,so did i .The Boks fans were so nice and they swamped me.They even wanted to get a photo with me when i was at the bar at halftime.I felt like i was a Hollywood star a local drug dealer wrongly convicted or an endangered species. Weird but nice.Made numerous okies out of that experience.

Half a dozen rounds in, here are six Super Rugby takeaways for Dave Rennie and the Wallabies

I will see how we go against the supposedly lowly Blou Bulls (Die Planks) before i get too excited.

Lots to like about the Reds as they set themselves for Super streak

Numpty i was at that very game, my Roar profile was pic was taken there.Quite the experience. 😂 😂 😂

Sheek as young bloke i still remember one of those games in 1986 in NZ we lost. ( may have been the 12/13 loss) Steve Tynman scored a fair try but the ref was too slow to get to the grounding of the ball and as there was no replay he said held up. There was no TMO to ask then .On replay it was fair a dinkum try. We still won the Bledisloe anyway.

Bleak Bledisloe hopes a harsh reality for Wallabies fans

KCOL, Like these blokes?

Farr Jones/Lynagh Willie O/ Tim Gavin/ Troy Coker.
Gregan/Larkham Matt Cockbain / Toutai Kefu/ Owen Finegan.

The great Australian openside debate: Round 1

Fionn what`s the weather like in Canbra? I saw a photo on the Brumbies page of a blue clear sky over the fortress at 10 am. Smoke haze gone?

Three strikes and you're out? Thorn needs finals footy in third year of Reds reboot

” Get use to and accept defeats this year “.We are already used to defeats over the last 3 years. We don’t expect a lot this year, just winning a few more games would be nice.

Wallabies need winning mentality – Campese

Reds have a goodish squad, but i`m still concerned about Thorns approach to the crucial 10 spot. Will it be JOC Hegarty Stewart or Lucas? 12 is up in the air as world class SK has left.

9 McDermott
10 JOC Stewart Hegarty Lucas
11 Speight
12 JOC
13 Petaia Chris F Sautia
14 Dangunu Chris F Sautia
15 Stewart Hegarty Lucas

Kurtley playing flyhalf will be interesting.
