    Always turn off anyway to get away from the droning on of Kearns and Kafer. I honestly think The ratings would be higher if there was a better commentary team

    Missed few tackles though. Still not the complete package.

    The physicality was really high tonight. We should be a real chance in these Bledislodes.

    The All Blacks won't be phased by physicality alone, we need the polish the finish the job. It's hard to judge with SR Aotearoa and SR AU functioning in isolation. But hell, it's a start!

    Don't disagree with posters who nominated Duagunu as MOTM, but Matt Philip surely put in the best Wallabies audition. In everything, and never took a backward step. His front on tackle of Tupou at full speed was a match highlight.

    Also, called the lineouts and I can't remember any going astray (probably one or two did but they don't spring to mind).

    The quality of footy played for this semi final was another great advertisement for this competition.

    Thanks rebels for your sacrifice this season and you played a good semi final to well mark the Occassion of your first footy finals game.

    100%. For me, just an opinion, Tate shouldn’t have been allowed back on. Once your off your off. Makes the game more interesting.

    Disagree. Team shouldn't be punished for a player having an HIA. How would you feel if your team's player went off for a "maybe" illegal head contact that didn't get picked up or penalised, and you had to play one short? Not happy, I'd bet.

    Assailant the Rebellious
    Worthy and resilient indeed
    Now as ascendancy awaits
    Stands a wild, free steed
    The path to supremacy
    It will rampage to impede.

    By that logic a team shouldn’t be punished for any injury. It’s part of the game.

    A sub is a risk reward scenario.

    For the record I’m upset at anything maybe that goes against my team. maybe forward passes, knock one etc.

    I thought that NZ's outside backs really excelled in the north-south basketball game they played, and really showed where we are lacking in talent. We have a tonne of forward talent i reckon, but not so much in the outside backs. Good to see MK and Daugunu kill it in a high pressure game.

    Rum aint my drink - more a whiskey man. Also pulled it back a little.

    So much to unpack in that post, not sure where to begin.
    I might just let it go.

    Fair enough mate :) maybe another time. It’s a rare situation :)

    I’m a big fan of school of thought of having less subs in a game.

    The commentary team are as bad as ever. They made a fair comment when Wilson went off that he had been well contained, but then proceeded to say that Nasirani had shut him down all night. I didn’t realise the forwards all ran at their opposite number the whole time.

    Excellent game that one and a great advertisement for the sport in OZ. I think we just stay the course with our own comp, because if that's the kind of footy we can dish up it will bring the punters back.

    He looked to cop Magnays shoulder to his head when he was tackling Koroibete, he was slow to get up and clutching his head when that happened.

    Nah I’m all for it, medical evidence now proves concussions are an enormous threat to players of contact sports, the current HIA protocols are absolutely correct. What we don't want is players refusing to go off and risking further brain injuries because they don’t want to let the team down.

    We also don’t want put additional pressure on the independent medical practitioners on the sideline because they decide to remove a player for a HIA assessment, which then adversely impacts the team. They aren’t their to change the course of the games, simply their to protect the players health.

    Excellent game, and you right great quality, but like in NZ you will find after a year or so 5 team comp would wear pretty thin.

    Have to say I was surprised how well Rebels went, but they sure put up a fight. And as I said on other thread, this was 4th game in a row I watched yesterday and still held my interest. Although I very happy with Reds winning of course.
