    5 weeks is about what I thought. Players just need to clean this shit up, there are cameras everywhere, rot like this will always get punished. I have never really understood these types of careless tackles given how drilled the players are.

    It sucks and is dangerous for the guy taking the hit, let's the Reds down and it sucks for us fans, he played a sensational game, now he'll spend a quarter of the season running the water.

    It was notable that in the post game conference, when Thorn was asked about his 5 tries, he immediately made reference to the tackle.

    I’d imagine Daugunu is probably going to be doing a lot more running than just the water.

    I'd imagine a lot more tackling, with Peter Ryan, in the sand pit.

    Would love to see Matty Faessler from Brothers get a development contract after the news about Ma’afu. Reckon he would cherish being in a professional environment.

    Absolutely, he’s destined for the big time.

    5 weeks. Deserved. He'll be gutted & let the team down but hopefully he will concentrate on his technique.

    Well at least Jock is locked in for the start of the season.

    Sorry it's Hyne the brothers backrower who went to the Brumbies and had back to back knee injuries.

    He went to Downlands. Good bushy backrower. Need more of them.

    So did Mack Mason before he went to Churchie, and great young player called Mac Grealy.

    Hell of a rugby school that one.

    Anyone know the injury status of our props for Round 1? Will Smith, Hoopert, Fotuaika all be unavailable?

    Rugby.com.au reporting that Hoopert and Smith are racing time to be fit for next weekend. No mention of Fotuaika so reckon he is no chance.

    Assuming those guys are right, as is Rodda (not sure) I'd go something like:

    1 Dane Zander
    2 Brandon Paenga-Amosa
    3 Taniela Tupou
    4 Lukhan Salakai-Loto
    5 Angus Blythe
    6 Angus Scott-Young
    7 Liam Wright
    8 Harry Wilson

    9 Tate McDermott
    10 Isaac Lucas
    11 Henry Speight
    12 James O'Connor
    13 Jordan Petaia
    14 Jock Campbell
    15 Bryce Hegarty

    16 Alex Mafi
    17 JP Smith / Harry Hoopert (whomever is fit)
    18 Dave Feao (there are no other tights heads are there?)
    19 Izack Rodda
    20 Seru Uru
    21 Moses Sorovi
    22 Hamish Stewart
    23 Chris Feauai-Sautia

    I don’t envisage the squad will differ far from that.

    I think Paisami will be on the bench, set to replace Petaia at 40-60min mark as they increase his workload. Paisami has earned his spot through his trial form, CFS was average during the trials..

    I also think they’ll start Rodda and sub him early, rather then bring him off the bench.

    Josh Nasser is another THP option, between him and Feao, neither are ideal subs.

    I am rewatching the game and Harry Wilson is a proper 8. Seeing you blokes talking him up for the last few months, I've looking forward to seeing him play. Can't believe he has the game he has at 20.

    I hope they don't rush any of the boys back. It's a long season.

    Nasser had it over Bell when they faced off in the scrum last night. Scrummaging looks to be a significant weakness for Bell.

    I don't think you can say that based off the scrum between them, Reds had one dominant scrum, Tahs scored a try off the next and earned a penalty on the last..

    They're both pups as far as props are concerned, impressive from both to be playing in their first SR at just 20years old.
