Favourite Son 23 man squad

For a bit of fun and to create some discussion, I have put together a list of 23 recent players who were blessed with the opportunity of donning the candy stripes of the greatest district rugby club in the combined Sutherland and St George area, the Southern Districts Rebels.

Yes I just can’t see how that would be restricted to the Crusaders though.

Discipline the only thing that will prevent a Rebels’ Australian conference title

There are some that are lazy and lack of skill, but they definitely are cynical under pressure on their line.

Yes there appears to be another rebel with a Capital R, they also have a different avatar. They also sound like they are from Qld, yuck.

There are some out there that suggest the Crusaders are coached to be cynical. The Rebels do have that look about them.

A lot easier to drown them out Jez.
Look I’m not saying it should be open slather, but as Andy says, some differing views is interesting.

Izzy and Rugby AU: A monumental misconception

A low tackle would have brought him down and avoided a yellow card. However it was a high tackle that prevented a try. Correct call any day.

Brumbies get hit with controversial penalty try against the Stormers

Jed did a superb no look pass to AAC, you can see Hodge come in behind Genia thinking it was going outside to the winger.

"KB did a fantastic job out the back tonight"

Didn’t think either were much better than good and no any NZ would not have put 40 on them in a half of footy.
No need to combat hyperbole with hyperbole.

Agree

Izzy and Rugby AU: A monumental misconception

Agree he probably wouldn’t, but that’s why I like democracy. Majority opinion usually dictates societal practices, most often for the better.

Yeah that could be tricky but would still be my personal preference.

Drown him out with a positive message.
Any homosexual conflicted by Issy’s comments should be emboldened by the likes of Perenara, Ta’avao, Pocock, Cheika Hooper and co having their back.

Izzy and Rugby AU: A monumental misconception

Generally I agree but the sticking point for me is talk of the afterlife. This is a massive grey area and can’t be proven as discrimination.
I still believe in this case using the opportunity to launch positive inclusive campaigns by RA and QANTAS would work better than sacking someone which appears to many as draconian.

Izzy and Rugby AU: A monumental misconception

But he’s not saying they shouldn’t play rugby. If he was I’d join the pile on.

Then stop getting your rugby news from the Waratah website.

It's time for the real Beale to return

Yes WR were also click baiting giving out those awards.

Hansen won’t rush to swap Barrett for Mo’unga

One?

Foley says Folau is hurting the Waratahs

I am saying how I personally feel about communication and not firing people at a whim. That goes for sponsors. My words are quite clear on this, I do not feel compelled to convince anyone.
What I would say is that we are an inclusive organisation respecting and welcoming anyone including those with differing religious views. We don’t feel homosexuality is a choice let alone a sin. We would hope there is no discrimination in the afterlife either.

Cheika stumbles in first test of new Wallabies paradigm

By expressing a different view.

I try to lean towards collaboration and communication before totalitarianism where possible.
It could have been a good learning mechanism.

Agree with this, although I personally don’t want to see him sacked for this, I just can’t see how it is actually tenable for him to stay. It will be a payout or nothing.

Pretty clear there is more than just one group telling others what their opinion should be.

Israel Folau, what the hell?

That actually works both ways.
Personally, this is in a really grey area for me, as I’m not offended but support LBGQTI rights.
I also respect religeous freedom whilst not believing in the afterlife. I can’t argue against something I can’t disprove, but if he called for exclusion by some from the game or other aspects of life, then I can argue that easily.
I am not as quick as others to call for loss of employment as I really value people having a livelyhood.
Like I said, this one is not so clear cut for me and sits right on the fringes of a number of areas, but respect others have differing opinions on both sides.

Just one question will decide Folau's future

You seem to know a lot about him and what he has done. Anyway my point stands, address the actual issue instead of bringing up straw man arguements like this and what others are doing with middle eastern airlines.

Odds might be a bit short being reigning premiers.

This has been covered off before that he now regrets the tatoos.
bringing this up constantly is as useless as bringing up Qatar airlines in having a go at Qantas.
