    The Reds really could/should pick up 3 wins from the first 5 rounds. The Lions shouldn't be a problem, they've had a huge turnover of players and look average. Jags will likely be too good at home and with the travel. Sunwolves we should beat at home as with the Sharks who only just beat likely the worst SA team at home by 8.

    3/5 wins with a couple bonus points and the heavy travel out of the way would be a great start. Biggest question mark for me is how our young squad will handle the rigors of that much travel in a short time.

    ^^ fingers crossed..

    I haven't kept up with the Lions gains/losses, but they didn't look crash hot against the Jaguares.

    With Rodda and JP in the starting side and a couple of tweaks to the backline we should have a W over the Lions. Going seamlessly, we can outplay Jaguares at the set piece and spreading the game out wide with runners on the ball.

    I have done a little digging and apparently they have/had like a whole shop somewhere. I asked the Reds Membership people, I'll update when they get back to me.

    Just on the beer, it was the cruelest cut of all. I had to switch to red wine, the stuff at Suncorp tastes best after pouring it into a cup of ice.

    Don't hold your breath of Reds Membership Team - they are a bit slow in responding. There can't be that many members though.

    Newcastle Knights and Brisbane Lions I know have been impacted also (they use the same company to provide their gear)

    Just watched the replay of the Rebels A v Brumbies Runners waiting for the Reds to kick off .

    Heaps of young talent from both teams who have come through the Qld pathways plus a few guys from QPR , seems like a great opportunity for these fellas. It’s the second time they have played one another this year , the first one being the curtain raiser to the trial game. Got to be also a benefit to both the franchises being able to have a look at players under real game situations .

    Doesn’t seem to be anything similar for the Reds and Tahs . Would be great to see a Reds A v Tahs A as a curtain raiser sometime .

    Some excellent performances in that game too Nomad. McCaffrey was immense and Resjan Pasitoa showed a lot of promise. A couple of the Brumbies A locks also showed good form, but Hosea for Melbourne really stood out I thought. Some good young local talent also on show in the Brumbies A backrow.

    How did Isaac Henry go? Disappointed to lose him from QLD.

    He played very well running off Pasitoa who showed he is definitely up for senior footy in only his second game out of school.

    In fact , the whole Brumbies A backline looked like they had been playing together for years . Pat Mcabe was commentating and gave Positoa at 10 , Henry at 12 and the 15 ( who’s name escapes me ) plenty of well deserved accolades.

    Tom Hooper in first year out of school playing lock was also very impressive.
