    Surely time to kick this off, 9:00am in Q.

    Jaguares start 2020 season as highly favoured and will want to bounce back at home after a tight loss to Hurricanes at home last week.

    Both squads are reasonably stable which not many franchises can boast. Reds away record has been pretty poor which needs surely to improve this season. Two bonus points hasn't been too bad a start but Reds unlikely to be favoured here.

    Both teams without the best discipline records. Reds stretching in the front row depth. Big questions around the team selections particularly in the halves at 10 and 12 but also Hockings is apparently ready for return in the row.

    Hate to say it, Jaguares by 8.

    Be good to see this much hyped Reds squad win a game. Jaguares away is a hard ask though.

    If the Jaguares scrum is as bad as Argentina's from 2019 the Reds stand a chance. The Reds do come off some long travels and a fairly taxing tackle count at Ellis Park so it's not going to be easy.

    Reds did it there two years ago, no reason they can't take it again. Reds by 5!

    I can't see a way we will be able to get close to a win other than by sheer luck. The jaguares will win it by 14+

    If Jaguares turn up, it could be a massacre Jags by 30 points in that scenario

    More likely Jags by 10

    If its 8:40 AEDT (daylight savings time) then it would be 7:40 in Queensland, we are an hour behind. Or have I read your post wrong.

    I'm glad that's all settled.
    It only took 5 posts to establish the kick off time.:confused:

    I watched the Jaguares V Hurricanes game, and I noticed that the Jaguares flyhalf, Domingo Miotti chose to kick the leather off the ball, and did it quite well, so the Reds backs are going to have to take this into account.
    With that in mind, what back line should we incorporate? Possibly JOC back to 12 as I believe he is better at overall field play than Stewart, though I appreciate that ball retrieval falls into the hands of the back 3. And maybe bring back Isaac Lucas to flyhalf.

    I just went to the Reds webpage, https://reds.rugby/ to see whats happening with the boys over in Argentina.
    I mean, this is the Reds web page , right. You'd assume that at least snip-its of information would be coming back to the fans to keep us Geed up.
    But not a bloody word. What do those administrators do out Ballymore way. Work out where to buy the best latte macchiatos?
    Or a trip to the car yard to test drive the latest Lexus?
    Come on fellas, earn your keep and make the site a bit more proactive rather then pinching the media stories.

    Thankfully back to where we started. Thanks for the input everyone, was getting a bit confused.

    I'd give 10 JOC 12 Stewart another run, barring injury. Then back to 10: Lucas; 12: JOC; 22: Stewart; at home v Sunwolves.

    Hagwarays good value at the 12.5-

    No kicking game , unsettledness at the play making positions , no depth in the set piece (and they’ll need it)+ the end of a brutal 3 weeks on the road in playing in 35 degree heat , altitude , and across 3 x continents with a young / inexperienced team - does not auger well

    Hawgwarays will be looking for blood after getting taken down last week. They are settled and haven’t been on the road yet either.

    Reds to get pumped by 12 +
