    You'd hate to do the Durban -> Joburg -> Singapore -> Sydney -> Wellington -> Melbourne -> Ballarat shuffle as a big fella in economy class.

    Rebels to win in a battle of attrition.

    Hopefully last week's win instills some confidence & belief in the lads. Much tougher ask doing this 0/3.

    Curwin Bosch is back for the Sharks, flying back from SA after a family bereavement. Lwazi Mvovo will join him on the plain after suffering a concussion - not sure why he had to fly back all the way for SA for docs to monitor and clear him only for him to fly all the way back.

    Thomas du Toit is also cleared it seems.

    Chamberlain is out though.

    The last time the Sharks played the Rebels in Australia they were properly belted.

    Referee for the match is South African, AJ Jacobs.

    Perhaps someone can explain this to me? I've noticed it in 2017 and 2018 only now after I started compiling this ref sheet.

    I'm still without my members card so I called the office and they were able to send me my ticket directly. Once you get through it's a fairly easy process.

    Laurie is tracking at 110% for his customer service. Just a bloke trying hard to do his job well.

    See you on the 12:16 from Southern Cross!

    teams up, Hodge obviously out but also Toomua, presumably injured, Deegan to start. Ainsley in to start, Smith to the bench, Misa and Rangi swap, Lomani and English on a 6/2 bench with the big Saffa K., remaining with Leota and Cottrell. Jones still with a soer back and Uelese still recovering from hammy !

    Wonder if Toomua's crushed plums are responsible for his rest?

    Looks like a good team that is rewarding form and performance, where possible.

    Despite injuries, side looks good.

    Big fan of Hardwick, Phillip, Magnay & Kellaway.
