    Yeah, thought about that sort of option but, as a tenured pole expert, I wanted to avoid the subsequent tears of disillusionment that would have instantly doused the hate turbines rendering this as yet another woe-is-me thread... as if it's not going to pan out like that anyway...

    I'll join in Dismal, for me it's Tahs v Brumbies.
    For a very big part of my life it was NSW v Qld, but that was before Super Rugby.
    Once the Brumbies started to succeed, and jumped on the 'what legends we are, a tiny population but beating the two big guys' bullshit, despite the fact that 90% of their players came from NSW or Qld, it really got up my nose.
    Having said that, I will always back any Australian franchise against any OS opposition. I also don't 'hate' the Brumbies, in the way that some here think of the Tahs, it's just the game I most want the Tahs to win.

    yeah looks like big vote getter early here in the 3rd congressional polling district of Who Gives A Shit.

    To date, NO votes for Qnld Reds vs ACT BumBreeze. Where is the hatred? WHERE? ANSWER ME.

    While my unreasonable hate has shifted from the Tahs to the Rebels, the Tahs v Brumbies matches are the ones I look forward to the most.
