Reds: 48
Sunwolves: 27

76‘ – TRY SUNWOLVES – JABA BREGVADZE

The Reds are sitting on their heels now, and Bregvadze takes full advantage, a short unders line, and he flies through a hole off the little short ball from his inside man.

Runs 22m untouched to score – Parker knocks it over.

Reds: 48
Sunwolves: 27

72‘ – TRY SUNWOLVES – RYOTO NAKAMURA

Hayden Parker is having a stellar game, and chips over the top now, regathering his own stab. The ball shifts left, where Little is taken into touch. He grabs it and throws it in quickly where Nakamura collects and scores around all the Reds kind of standing around looking confused.

Parker’s kick is on the left edge – he nails it, obviously…

Reds: 48
Sunwolves: 20

68‘ – Nice break from the Sunwolves through Little down the right edge, but the ball is dragged into touch, and the Reds attack up the middle.

Reds: 48
Sunwolves: 13

63‘ – Sunwolves on their own 10 with Tanaka shifting right. Two more carries up the middle, before the ball turns over. Sorovi shifts to Hoopert, and the Reds are in possession 10m out – big chance.

Reds: 41
Sunwolves: 13

58‘ – TRY REDS – DUNCAN PAIA’AUA

It’s stinking of last weeks second half, now.

Paia’aua dots down after the work on the inside from Timu and Stewart. Little pop pass, and it’s a simple overlap for the Reds inside centre to dot down and score.

Kick is 5m in from the left edge, and Lance just pushes it left.

Reds: 41
Sunwolves: 13

56‘ – Penalty Reds

Offside Sunwolves, playing it on the ground.

Lance will chew off some distance to the right edge.

Mafi and Hoopert check in, whilst Timu returns from his time out in the naughty chair.

Reds: 36
Sunwolves: 13

53‘ – TRY REDS – ETO NABULI

It’s a double for Nabuli, but that was all Duncan Paia’aua. He stripped in the midfield, and goose stepped his way through the middle. Went 30m untouched, before turning the ball back inside to Nabuli who scores under the posts.

Kick is a regulation one.

Reds: 36
Sunwolves: 13

Lineout Reds around halfway off the clearing kick from Emery.

Sorovi checks in for McDermott.

49‘ – Back and forth here, and it ends with a Reds penalty, Little not rolling away.

Lance kicks to the sideline around halfway for the lineout.

Reds: 29
Sunwolves: 13

45‘ – Yellow Card Reds – Caleb Timu

Yellow card comes after Timu collars Parker onto the ground, then dives on him with no arms. It’s head on head contact, but only a yellow?

The inconsistencies in refereeing decisions here are pretty strange…

Reds: 29
Sunwolves: 13

43‘ – Ball with the Reds on the S’Wolves 22m line off the knock on, and Paia’aua grubbers through for Daugunu who just can’t regather. As I type, Wright steals it, then gets pinged for holding on. They tap and go, and kick ahead to Stewart, who puts it up in the sky.

Reds: 29
Sunwolves: 13

41‘ – Second half underway

It’s with the Sunwolves on their own 22.

Try
40‘ – TRY REDS – TANIELA TUPOU

McDermott with the nice lead up work off the dominant Reds scrum. Ball shifts right, and Tupou beats one before reaching out and slamming down for his fourth of the season.

Half time hooter goes as Lance knocks it over from in front.

Reds: 29
Sunwolves: 13

Red Card
36‘ – RED CARD – ED QUIRK

Well this will cause controversy midweek no doubt, and the Sunwolves will play another 40 minutes, like last week, with 14 men.

The call is a closed fist on the face of Hamish Stewart on the ground. The commentators are apoplectic. Will definitely hear more about this.

Reds: 22
Sunwolves: 13

36‘ – How about the run from JP Smith?! He’s been dynamite tonight.

Went straight through the middle of the lineout – in and aways two people before being dragged down 25m out. Ball shifts left, and the Sunwolves eventually usher it into touch off the inside ball from Nabuli.

BPA’s lineout throw is a stinker, and the Sunwolves attack, but eventually knock on through Leitch.

Phew! Catch your breath.

Reds: 22
Sunwolves: 13

34‘ – TRY REDS – JONO LANCE

They’ve added 8, maybe 10 points with a man in the bin.

Ball shifts left to Lance, who shows the ball inside to Tupou, where the third defender buys the dummy. Shimmies through the little hole, and Lance goes 22m untouched to score.

The Reds 15 looks to convert his own try, and doesn’t.

Reds: 22

32‘ – Great kick from Stewart in general play, turns the Sunwolves defenders around, and Fujita can only exit to the 22. BPA with the throw in.

Reds: 17

30‘ – Penalty Goal Reds

Immediately hit back through Lance, Wright with his mits all over it, and it’s thrown over.

Reds: 17

Yellow Card
28‘ – PENALTY TRY AND YELLOW CARD TO DUNCAN PAIA’AUA

That’s very, very silly. Sunwolves fly down this right edge, and they get it two on one against Paia’aua who slaps down the offload. Leitch would’ve scored in the corner, so they concede a penalty try, and will play with 14 for the next 10.

Reds: 14
Sunwolves: 13

26‘ – Kick ping-pong there, with McDermott’s nice nudge down to the Sunwolves left edge returned by an even better kick from Emery. Reds lineout on the half, and the Sunwolves win it against the throw.

Reds: 14
Sunwolves: 6

24‘ – TRY REDS – ETO NABULI

20 phases later, and Nabuli is the beneficiary. The break started with Stewart and Higginbotham down the right edge, before some nice link play back inside saw a set of pick and goes that ate easy metres. Eventually, the ball ends up with Paia’aua who shovels a little short ball to a flying Nabuli. He scores untouched.

Lance throws it over.

Reds: 14
Sunwolves: 6

20‘ – Chance at goal for Jono Lance, it’s a regulation shot – but he pushes it wide. Not one for the highlights reel, that.

Sunwolves 22m drop out with Tupou now.

Reds: 7
Sunwolves: 6

18‘ – Lineout Reds 35m out.

Lance kicks to the corner, and the Sunwolves can’t exit more than 15m. BPA with the throw to the middle pod as I type.

Reds: 7
Sunwolves: 6

17‘ – Penalty Goal Sunwolves

Deja’ Vu off the pilfer from Little. Parker nails it from 44m.
