    The Sunwolves are in for a world of pain at scrum time. Massive yellow card prospects.

    Weird that Moses is relegated to the Bench I thought he played pretty well last week?

    Brad does not see selection as other mere mortals do. Form and potential are but minor concerns in the grand scheme of things.

    Kane Douglas isn't even injured, I know he's moving on but that shouldn't be grounds to drop someone from the 23.

    Meh. I’m not concerned about Douglas not being picked.

    I love that pack. If we can’t get go forward with Tupou, Tui and Timu playing then we never will.

    I like the pack too, it's the reasoning that shits me, he's off next season.

    Given that this is the last Reds game of a poor season I think the guys who are leaving should be left out unless we are really lacking in a position. We need Lance because he can kick goals reliably and apart from Daugunu we lack that skill in the squad. Not sure who we have uninjured in the outside backs, perhaps no-one as he has selected Nabuli who is off. Maybe they would have been better off giving Tela his debut at last although I thought he was more of a 10/12. What's happened to Toua?

    Rocks for hands. Shame we can't swap the Brumbies for one Queenslander with another and get Banks back!

    Ok - I’ll bite. What in particular are you referring to? I didn’t notice anything particularly untoward.

    I'm waiting for him to get pinged for boring. He seems to set up at an angle and has a good go at the hooker. Like all good tightheads.

    Yep TSR like Sully says he does bore a bit and seems to get his shoulders below his hips a bit. I not accusing him of being a bad scrummager by any means ,I think he bloody good, and am supporting Reds, just thought he was a little fortunate a couple of times last week. Actually shows a bloody good prop who like a 7 should be playing the ref.

    Ok - yeah, I can see that.

    Gee it’s fun watching him overwhelm his opposite though. Bloody impressive.

    Dan, given that I haven't seen any comments from anybody criticising Tupou's scrum efforts, indeed just the opposite, what are you implying?

    EDIT : OK, just read the following posts and is now clear. Hadn't noticed the boring in myself, but given he will be important to the Wallabies' scrum later on, will look for it in this week's game.

    Once he gets the reputation with that he'll be pinged rightly or wrongly in the future

    As with Pocock's trick, they'll attempt to ref him out of the game and it won't work.
