I want to see all four Aussie teams finish above the Saffas on the table. I am not a fan of the way the overseas players can still play for the Bokke.
Even one ad during game time is too many imo.
Underestimate the Brumbies backline at peril, Adam. Essentially the same as last year minus CLL, and I seem to recall they easily topped the try.
Smoke being reported to have returned to Canberra. Hopefully will dissipate before Friday, but the heat could make proceedings very uncomfortable.
Should be a hard fought match. Un-rugby like heat could turn it either way.
I expect the Brumbies to look something like :
Who BJ? Les?
Agree on pretty much all counts Dru. I'd just add that I think McDermott is being a little over-hyped by many Reds fans. He certainly can be a threat.
Almost a doppelganger for Simmons, but I disagree with your comment about [potential. Rob Simmons' potential was always to get himself selected.
I hope I didn't mislead anyone with my comment about Brown. Pilfering is not his only skill. He is also extremely good at supporting the ball.
Nasser had it over Bell when they faced off in the scrum last night. Scrummaging looks to be a significant weakness for Bell.
You have made that assertion a few times FP, but look at the later part of the Brumbies/Rebels trial when Jarome Brown was on the field. He is a.
If your contention is correct Jagman, then I would estimate the Saffas have only sufficient players to put together one Super side. We are not so.
Think he threw the pass to put Neville in for a try. Otherwise, didn't have much opportunity to show his wares.
Tahs scrum weak with Bell out there. Didn't really shape up at set piece in U20s; Super just a step too far.
30th minute the classic example of Rob Simmons' lack of impact around the ground. Good run up the middle by Hooper, tackled and McDermott stands over.
