    Well that surprises me too. I just assumed it was the Reds.

    Paisami ruled out, Flook to start at outside centre instead. massive loss for the Reds, he has been the inform player in the backline.

    Brumbies by 20

    crap surely you jest, well I don't think Flook vs KI is a great match up prob prefer JP moves in one and we start FD

    Would have expected JP to move to 13 and Daugunu to start, but who knows, in Thorn we trust.

    Who's KI? If it's meant to be Lenny Ikitau, then would be good to at least get the initials right. Very confusing to someone not so familiar with some of the players to just refer to them by their initials. No problem with MT for Matt Toomua for example as he's been known as that for years, but I'd rather Duagunu had his name in full rather than just FD (as another example).

    Yes apologies using this forum on my phone is not the best medium, however why by your logic is it ok to refer to player's by their initials but not others? Seems like a petty post really.

    No-one is likely to get Toomua's initials mixed up, and like I said he's been known as MT in rugby circles for a decade or more. Nobody I know calls Len Ikitau LI, let alone KI. And FD? Probably half the readers if they know him at all would think his name might start with P rather than F. But anyway, it is a pet peeve of mine, and only exacerbated when the wrong initials are used.

    Personally, I wish no one used players initials.

    I wanna knock mauls but mainly because the Fkn Rebels can’t do it, they would’ve lost advantage. Brumbies are masters at generating maul penalties.

    Simone already passing like Matt Toomua couldn’t last night.

    Petaia has nailed two big tackles so far, good defender.
