    I’m sure the assessment was fair and I’m not surprised he passed it. I’d like to know how it was called for. I’ll wait for further information though.

    Reds deserved that one. Same Rebels problems as the last 4 or so weeks, and the Toomua injury turned a 90% result into a guaranteed one. Few things to think about moving forward. Big one for me is Billy: don't have a clue what's happened with him this year, but he's clearly giving 100%, and yet still has consistently looked off the pace.

    Nothing new, been a few accusations at even high levels in the past.

    JP Smith on for Hoopert was a brainwave. Hoopert had a 'mare.

    How many times has a solo electric try from Koroibete kept the Rebels in it? If we lose him back to the Storm it'd be a travesty.

    His all round game has really fallen off. Even some of his general left to right passing was poor at times.

    Hoopert hasn’t been the same since neck injury. Bit of a weak spot tbh.

    JP is incredible, a great Reds man.

    If you got your beer from me, it would be gluten free and you would not be thanking me. That spelling had rum written all over it.

    Body of an athlete too.



    Love Hardwick's effort, would love a Wallaby 7 but the man gives it his all, can tell he's a competitor, the bloke looked devastated after the game.

    It seemed a bit dodgy at first but on the replay of the tackle he does seem to cop a hip to the head.

    maybe he had a head injury and a leg injury at the same time???

    He’s hard at it no doubt.

    Just lacks polish.

    If Wilkin can stay fit, he’s as good as anyone. Missed so much development because of injury.

    How shit is it that there's no after match discussion on Fox. Wouldn't cost a cent. Don't like that 5 minutes after a cracking semifinal I'm left staring at myself covered in dorito dust reflected back at me.

    Fox has done the bare minimum this year to help Rugby, I want a broadcaster that's actually likes the sport.

    Any further news on Petaia? Just the head knock? I’d love to see him next week. Really the Wallabies backline should be the Reds + Toomua, Koroibete and Banks/DHP.
