Have to back them at home. Opposition likely coming from SA will help.
Possibly no Quade. luckily the team learned to play without him in 2012. Lucas to 5/8 if Cooper is rule out with suspension
Full condolences to Brumbies fans, to have the final slip away like that so late in the season is heartbreaking
Come on Aussie, Come on,
Come on Aussie, Come on,
Come on Aussie, Come on.
Go the Reds.
Here, we, go.
Reds take 3rd, despite finishing behind the Crusaders and a way inferior points differential.
But I have been told this conference system is about the money.
And so it begins.
Brumbies have to hope that either:
(a) Shorks don't win by more than 4 points and don't get 4 tries; or
(b) Bulls lose or draw.
I'm hoping for both (a) and (b).
Not to get too far ahead of things, but there's a real chance of a grand final repeat in Brisvegas - Just needs the Cru and Reds to get through the first week, then beat Stormers & Chiefs respectively.. At least that's what I'm hoping..
Take it up with these guys if you feel so aggrieved - http://www.sanzarrugby.com/general/contact/
They'll have to beat the Chiefs in NZ I assume. Meanwhile the Crusaders, despite earning more points than the Reds, would be forced to travel to SA.
Down with conference leg-ups!
So what, the Reds are in the Finals now?
Doh! Conference leaders, home quarter final, yes in with a real chance
But your not takikng into account that the Reds had to play Australian opposition twice as much as the NZ and SA teams.
Looking at how close the marigns have been and the fact that the bottom teams have the ability to beat the top teams as well make it a much tougher conference
Reds would've beaten the Crusaders if not for Bryce'y boy anyway so poetic justice is served
The Cru could not even score a try at home against this inferior team! Who want teams with no attacking prowess to be in the finals
Unless the rules have been changed during the season then how can you complain? It is the rules and they should be followed, if anything is unfair it is that there is no full 2 rounds of home and away during the season so not all teams have to play the good teams, or all of the bad teams.
I guess this article has more relevance now. when i first read it i though the chance of the Reds jumping into 3rd highly unlikely...
I wonder which prop we can buy to replace Daley? He does seem to be the weakest link in the team at the moment.
Very annoyed I did not buy that extra Forever Red membership when they told me about the one ticket per membership for finals this year. Someone not able to go willing to share?
