    That's Ok the immense leadership of Michael Hooper will deal with it as he did with Beale's indiscretions.

    Why is it so hard for people to keep their views to themselves? Far left and far right have this compulsion to tell the whole bloody world about them. We can all hold our beliefs in our hearts and nobody can ever take that away, but this self righteous bullshit compulsion to tell the world pisses me off.

    Fark know's what that had to do with the 2018 Reds but it's said now.

    Couldn’t keep it to yourself, could you? ;)

    A teetotalling god bothering player would fit just fine with a teetotalling god bothering coach.

    Maybe the imaginary people will help the Reds win.

    Worth having a listen to this podcast which has an interview with Matt Taylor

    https://t.co/g0ltofPzz9.

    Great coaching talk but also excellent insight into the success of 2011 (and gives a lot of credit to Phil Mooney)

    Is Thorne that way inclined?

    zero will go off his tits with news that Hamish Stewart is expected to move to fullback with Jono Lance to return at 10 v the Sunwolves this weekend.

    Slipper back but Timu out and Higgers still not ready.

    Timu out? That sucks, hope not for long, he's my Comred of the year so far.

    I do think Stewart at 10 Lance at 15 against the Sunwolves makes more sense -- put some faith in the kid if he can't get you the W against the Sunwolves (who to be fair have been dangerous) who can he be trusted against.

    100% against the Hurricanes and Highlanders bring him off the bench once the game is done (likely 20 min in) and tell him to just play but no point in hiding him against the Sunwolves. Plus Thorn isn't following his 'via the bench' policy with Lance. :rolleyes:

    But it's a start the kid has been good, he at least went toe to toe with an elite Test Flyhallf. Good things to come.

    I remember reading somewhere earlier in this thread that he's leading prayer groups at Ballymore. Born again something or other.

    He did a podcast on players voice with Andrew Mccullough from the Broncos where he talked about his faith as well.

    I'm guessing that Quade is not a happy-slappy.

    I'm beginning to suspect as much. The whole Folau thing just makes all the QC exclusion justifications given to date seem even more like a pile of BS

    P.S.: Presume you mean happy-clappy?

    Just a perception from afar. Same as in life and politics, I think religion has no place in rugby.

    Might be time for Quade to jump on a plane to Melbourne. Could be the only way he'll play at Suncorp this year if he comes back as a Rebel in Round 18 in July.

    But would be bittersweet for many Reds fans to watch him & Genia running around for the opposition on the weekend of the 7th anniversary of the 2011 win.

    I read an article that said Quade has been approached by both the Rebels and the Brumbies, but that he turned them down. He seems pretty determined to be a Red, but it’s just not going to happen.

    Makes more sense to have lance at 15. We won a super title with him there.

    we won a Super Rugby GF with Lance there.

    Ben Lucas 9 games at fullback for the Reds that year (Lance just 3). Should we pick him at fullback this week?
