    Reds might have the favoured scrum but the real question over the setpiece is whether the Reds already struggling lineout, now without Rodda and Hockings, will manage to secure any ball against lineout extraordinaire Rob Simmons and his merry men.

    The Reds have had plety of time to sort out a lineout plan. If they get monstered no one to blame but themselves.

    If Tepai doesn't get a run time to release him back to league

    not yet, I saw they extended the registration for members until 5pm today, figure they won't be getting in touch about tickets until tomorrow at the earliest as a result.

    It looks like they're increasing the stadium allowance to 25000/50% (whichever is fewer) from Friday, so I can't see any members missing out

    Think you're about right. I also agree and I'm sure many others would that we want to see Tafa and Harris get their shot - but tbh Swinton, Dempsey, Hanigan, Holloway - they are still quite young and not doing TERRIBLY. 1 or 2 these guys needs to move team.

    TBH I'd start Ramm over Nawaqanitawase. Think it was against the Brumbies where it really showed that Nawaqa is not so quick - Banks, Muirhead and Wright all burned him. Reds have a bloody quick team - Daugunu, Speight, Campbell and Hegarty all known for their speed. Start the faster Ramm - bring on a Nawaqanitawase as a dynamic finisher.

    Hoping to see another 5 try haul from Daugunu, ideally without the red card this time.

    It's Tuesday evening and the game is on Friday. No sense of urgency, not a hint of professionalism.

    These cocks believe they have access to our attention and hence our money as-of-right.

    In fairness I suspect it has more to do with the Qld premier than it does anyone related to rugby or Suncorp. Advertising the tickets has never been an issue, selling them is.

    I agree with just about everything you said BH, but like UTR would start Ramm over Mark N. Possibly not as clever, but bigger, faster, stronger (for which being 22, not 19 is a factor) and a WAY better defender.

    He wouldn’t get a run with the Eels at this rate. Last year he looked overweight and uninterested.. hopefully he is finding some passion to play rugby again because he could be a huge asset in the midfield.

    Ramm bigger than Mark N. ? I'm surprised.

    Looking at recent photos he looks like he has lost a lot of weight

    Social media tells me Speight on his way out of the country right now, at the very least he's not in Brisbane anymore. I know a few had hopes he might lace up for a few more games before going to his new club, but it doesn't seem that way.
