    I don't think I've craved a Gold at the Caxton before heading to a rugby game this much since I was 18.

    Just announced, at least 2000 fans allowed in to watch this one. No word yet on mechanics around this.

    You'd have to think the Tahs are a huge chance to be competitive for 40 minutes in this one. Could possibly even lead at some point.

    Typical cocky overconfidence from east coast elitist.

    How long is it since the Reds won one of these? Or have I forgotten one?

    I think we could find a way to mess this up.

    I don't think the Reds have won a Super Rugby game against the Waratahs since 2013.

    I make it 11 in a row for the Waratahs.

    Can you believe it, pls clap as you read the statement of a (very occasional) optimist...

    If both the Reds and Tahs stay on the playing trajectory they established early in 2020, the Reds should win this and well.

    The 2020 Reds were often playing the best they have in years (well, not hard) and the Tahs, perhaps the worst (though that is saying something as well).

    Sully, I can remember a time when the Reds would consistently beat the Tahs, even when way below them on the table. All a matter of cycles. Maybe Round 1 will see the start of a new cycle.

    It would be bad signs for Australian rugby if the Tahs pull this off against a side with so many youngsters touted as future Wallabies.

    I’ll be more than content if the Tahs go down in a shootout like a couple of years ago where both sides scored 4+ tries.

    I'd say the opposite. You want teams that otherwise might not be fancied to compete, to outdo their reputation and to push the favoured team. Then we get better. It has kept the NZ conference stronger to have more teams that contend.
    I don't think they will, however.
