    Fantastic game. Better than any Aotearoa match so far.

    Force been impressive - especially the backrow and props around the park. Liked how flat Lance is playing.

    The energy was really up there wasn't it. I really enjoyed that game. Feel Berry is letting too much go at the breakdown, thought we were going to be cleaning that up. The Force well in that. They'll only improve as the new players settle in and they get a feel for things.

    Great game, congrats Force - huge effort. But I'm hugely impressed with Reds - with a YC in the last 15 mins we would have capitulated in past few seasons. Got the job done. Charge down was great - shows the commitment I reckon'.

    ASY seemed to go ok, didn’t hurt the lineout too much. I thought Tualima’s footwork at the line was pretty good in the last 10.

    Even as they visibly tired the effort levels were right up there. Really enjoyed that game as a neutral. Hoping that's the first of a trend in SR Aus. Upbeat, high energy Rugby. Bloody beautiful.

    I don't recall him ever losing possession. Makes a lot of good decisions, and has pace and power.

    Agree about this commentary team. Sound like they have one foot in the grave.

    That was our best line out all year, maybe longer.

    He was good in the NRC last year. Made one of those rising stars lists from memory.

    Very cute hearing how a 15 year old is being billeted with JO'C through Reds to Regions. What a fantastic initiative.

    That was heaps of fun. Will have to watch the replay to comment on the rugby, but bloody hell I enjoyed being there more than I have in a long time.

    Exciting game, very entertaining to watch. Reds team are on the way up and the Force aren't far off the pace.

    We don't need to be axing teams!

    What a cracking match. I can cope with losing when it's a great game like that. Plenty to like but plenty to work on.

    I reckon the Force wouldve taken that match with a little more depth.
