    Need to take advantage of the line outs, Sunwolves struggle big in them. Making no metres with ball in hand right now.

    rush defence is pressuring the Reds, this is where they need a few kicks in behind to keep the defence honest

    Im struggling to see why Sefa Naivalu keeps getting positive reviews this year, he looks like a man down on speed and confidence

    really nice run from Feauaia-Sautia, second good run this match

    followed by a shocking pass from Paia’aua

    Given the lack of Japanese in the Sunwolves, the JRU doesn't give a toss about SR.

    Lucas looking assured at 5/8, Stewart looking solid at fullback

    Reds holding on to pill is good. Not losing patience and opting for a poor kick.
    However they aren't looking overly threatening - but at least the stupid kicks are down.

    I wonder if Salakai-Loto is playing 5-10kg less then he should be, looks very lean and is struggling to get across the gain line when he has the ball.

    Standing bolt upright isn't helping him

    Little for the Sunwolves keeps impressing. He has to be 1 of the best centres in world rugby.

    Lucas doesn't have much distance on his kicks

    Sure.. but this is supposed to be Salakai-Lotos strength, ball running and tackle busts.

    Passing back 20m off a line out to kick it 25.. surely you kick after a few fwd phases so you don't have to pass it back so far.

    Reds lucky to get the penalty there and not concede a try. Looked good to me
