    If Fox is correct, Moses is going to need to buy some extra bandwidth for this site.'cos the forum is going to melt down. Bruce Ross, avert your eyes.

    According to the press release the fans will be treated to a live perfomance at half time by singing sensation Timomatic. I'm sure he will be a huge hit with the older crowd, check him out:



    Can't wait.

    Moses; exactly why rugby fans go to games. Almost up there with Jessica Mauboy last year.

    edit: Sorry Baabaa! Meant Barbarian. Honestly. You mods just look all alike.

    No Quirk is probably the only surprise for the Reds, guess he didn't impress enough in the trials to force Samo to lock reserve instead of Van the roller.

    Doesn't look as strong as last year, but on paper looks better than the severely weakened Tahs who are already injury riddled.

    Shit I like that! Van's back to roll some! That's a good bench.

    I can't speak for all the other geries on site but I don't mind that at all. It would be a bloody sight more interesting than watching fools in blow up suits make idiots of themselves.

    The Tahs also have no lock reserve. Guess Dennis will be it, unless L. Timani can sub as a lock in an emergency?

    Some Tahs players missing that would probably otherwise be in the 22 named:
    Vickerman, S. Timani, Elsom, McCutcheon
    Barnes, Mitchell, Turner, Pakalani

    Did I miss any?

    So, Halangahu has been named captain.

    Odd choice.

    Dennis is lock cover, but I would guess both locks will play big minutes

    McCutcheon was 8 cover for Palu as well.

    This is getting damn scary

    It is an odd choice considering Foley named an 8 man leadership group and Halangahu wasn't part of that group.

    Sadly 4 of those 8 players are currently/permanently injured.

    What happened to McCutch? I presume injured but haven't heard it anywhere. Otherwise how does he go from being VC to being left right out?
