Reds vs Canes (05/16/2009)
11:00
Gagger:  Welcome to the Reds vs The Hurricanes
11:24
Juan Cote:  Evening all – it’s all down to the Reds now. 

so far everyone has survived the warm-up!!!

11:25
Juan Cote:  The QRU has opened the purse strings and the press hacks are chowing down on seafood platters
11:38
Juan Cote:  Home crowd out-numbered by Canes supporters
11:39
Juan Cote:  Horwill leads out the Reds – he’s playing his 50th match tonight
11:39
Juan Cote:  Reds to kick off
11:41
Juan Cote:  Bright start to the game with both teams trading kicks Reds l/o on the Canes 40
11:42
Juan Cote:  First scrum – Reds attack
11:43
Juan Cote:  T/o Canes and they attack going thru the hands Smith makes a half break – swing it back left to the other wing but a knock on kills it. 

Reds scrum 35 out

11:45
Juan Cote:  Reds make a break but t/o and Nonu opens up in mid-field. 

Nonu chips thru and Va’aulu grounds it, maybe his doesn’t as it goes to the TMO after theEllison dived on the ball

11:46
[Comment From Jatz]
Working yet?
11:46
Juan Cote:  No Try, the fuck for that!!! 

Va’aulu is lucky

11:46
[Comment From Epi]
Hello all…
11:46
[Comment From cyclopath]
Am I being edited out or sumfing? Tried about 6 comments??
11:46
Juan Cote:  5 min Canes back on attack -they are looking great. 

Inside te Reds 10 min and they have advantage

11:47
Gagger:  Nonu goes over for a try
11:47
[Comment From Jatz]
Reds are going to get hammered here.
11:47
Juan Cote:  6 min TRY Nonu. Too much pressure
11:47
cyclopath:  That looked a bit easy
11:48
[Comment From cyclopath]
I am trying to pitch in JC but my comments are disappearing in the ether
11:48
Juan Cote:  The Canes are all over the Reds, they are running from depth and at pace. This could be a long night
11:48
[Comment From cyclopath]
Is Kaplan rat poison for the Reds as much as for the Tahs?
11:48
[Comment From chriscullen]
i note no one has voted for quade cooper for the wallabies yet
11:48
[Comment From chriscullen]
cmon reds
11:48
[Comment From cyclopath]
Carn the Reds!
11:48
[Comment From cyclopath]
The wanging on will be ill-tempered after the f***in Blues let the Crusaders live again!
11:48
Juan Cote:  Ripia kicks the conversion
11:48
Jatz:  Maybe the Reds should save money from seafood platters for players next season.
11:48
cyclopath:  Ignore all my out of sequence posts from about 10 minutes ago!!
11:49
Gagger:  Sorry fellas – just got back to it 

But cyclo – they were such gold!

11:49
cyclopath:  Yeah, yeah – at the time, but fame is so fleeting…
11:50
Juan Cote:  Canes put up a high ball but player sin front of kicker. Reds take a scrum option on the Canes 35 mt line. 

Short arm from the scrum and Schwalger gets a talking too

11:50
Juan Cote:  8 min another scrum in the same spot
11:50
cyclopath:  Kaplan got his warnings out the way before they kicked off – very efficient!
11:50
Jatz:  I cant believe two people have picked Tahu in their wallaby squad.
11:50
Jatz:  And Beale!
11:51
cyclopath:  Dunno about Kurtley, but Tahu is versatile and could be a game breaker. Yes, I did pick him!!
11:51
[Comment From Guest]
go the canes :P
11:51
Epi:  I’ve got Tahu in my squad too..
11:51
Jatz:  He turns over more ball than anyone in the history of the game!
11:51
Epi:  have you watched the last three tahs games?
11:52
Juan Cote:  10 miun Canes doing as they please and make a mess of the Reds TRY
11:52
Jatz:  Yes… did you watch him? Nearly every time he touches the ball the Tahs lose it!
11:52
cyclopath:  Fuck off Piri with the stupid dance!
11:52
Jatz:  Misses tackles too.
11:52
Jatz:  e is shite!
11:53
Epi:  per minute played Tahu has probably made more line breaks this year than anyone in the comp. If Deans can teach him a few pointers he will be a great centre.
11:53
Jatz:  Rubbish.
11:53
Epi:  doesnt matter anyway – he will be in the squad.
11:53
cyclopath:  What Epi said
11:53
Juan Cote:  The Canes have a try any time they like once the go wide, both Va’aulu and Davies cannot tackle. 

Conversion missed

11:54
cyclopath:  Has Davies got Peter Grigg’s beard on?
11:54
Juan Cote:  12 min Lucas has a snipe down the short side and makes ground but Davies drops a difficult pass
11:55
Jatz:  He will probably be in the squad now Digby is injured.
11:55
[Comment From Blue]
Rugby players that dance after scoring should be bitch slapped. Good evening ladies.
11:55
cyclopath:  Exactly Jatz, Ioane was my preferred option too, but no more. You need a player like that.
11:55
Epi:  agreed Blue
11:55
Blue:  Reds. Tackel
11:56
cyclopath:  Well the Canes should have access to handbags
11:56
Blue:  Tackle
11:56
Juan Cote:  13 min Mungo opens them up in mid-field but the Reds shoot themselves in the foot again. 

cooper throws a pass to the invisible man

11:56
Blue:  Just checking if its possible to ahve those two words in once sentence
11:56
Blue:  apparently is :)
11:56
cyclopath:  Blue, only if the word “can’t” also appears
11:57
Juan Cote:  15 min Canes t/o and they attack thru the forwards – dominating everything
11:57
Blue:  I don’t know
11:57
Blue:  I look at this Reds side
11:57
Juan Cote:  Breaks down and Reds havae a scrum
11:57
Blue:  and its really not a bad side
11:58
Blue:  they just seem to pile on the mistakes
11:58
cyclopath:  So Blue, who do you want your Big Bad Biltong Biting Blue Bastards to play in the semis?
11:58
Blue:  why can they turn out like they did against the Sharks
11:58
Juan Cote:  Reds l/o on canes 45
11:58
Blue:  and then dish up shit the rest of the time
11:58
[Comment From chriscullen]

Blue:  Have to travel
11:59
Blue:  Donlt threaten that much in attack
11:59
Blue:  Not a partucularly great pack
11:59

Blue:  but
11:59
Blue:  nybody
11:59
Blue:  s long as its at home in PRetoria
12:00
Blue:  anybody
12:00
Juan Cote:  18 min Reds have 13 missed tackles already
12:00
Juan Cote:  Get a penalty from a lineout infringement and kick to the corner for another l/o
12:01
cyclopath:  Geez, Hore, how stupid are you?
12:01
Juan Cote:  Reds win the lineout and get another penalty only 10 out now
12:01
Jatz:  No shots at penalty already!
12:01
Blue:  At this rate I know it won’t be the Tahs against the Bulls
12:01
Blue:  hich was a worry
12:02
cyclopath:  I reckon the Tahs could have out-bored the Bulls, or anyone really. Their lack of style is made for finals
12:03
Juan Cote:  TRY Nonu
12:03
Jatz:  Tahs are gone!
12:03
Epi

Can someone tell me why you need two halfbacks in a squad? Why can’t burgess play a full game and if he gets injured Gits goes in.. I think its a waste of a pick.

12:04
cyclopath:  Tahs were gone when the Blues farked it up. Sorry, but the Reds were never in it.
12:04
Jatz:  Yeah, agree cycle
12:04
Jatz:  cyclo
12:04
Juan Cote:  Once again the inside defence of the Reds is exposed The Canes have too much power. 

At least the Tahs have been put out of their misery early

12:04
Juan Cote:  Missed conversion 17 – 0
12:05
Jatz:  The crusaders smash the tahs hopes again!
12:05
cyclopath:  Cycle, cyclo – no matter Promise I won’t call you Ritz!
12:05
Epi:  BTW Gagger.. why is Berrick Barnes listed twice?
12:05
cyclopath:  He’s that good
12:05
Juan Cote:  23 mins Reds trying to mount some sort of attack but easily containted
12:06
Epi:  good one cyclo…
12:06
Juan Cote:  24 min Lucas throws a forward pass under no pressure – this is going to be ugly
12:06
Juan Cote:  Canes scrum on thier ouwn 40
12:07
Juan Cote:  Rodney Davies almost made a tackle!!!
12:07
Juan Cote:  Canes get short arm and then the Ref marches the Reds 10. Canes scrum on half way

12:11
Juan Cote:  Barnes lands the conversion
12:11
Juan Cote:  HERE WE COME!!!!
12:12
Epi:  If only JC…
12:12
cyclopath:  I think Quade was just saying to Piri “You’ve been served, dawg!” It’s a dance off!
12:12
Gagger:  Buns error fixed
12:13
Juan Cote:  The Reds attack again but turnover the ball. The Canes return it and the Reds have a lineout on their 22
12:13
Juan Cote:  31 min Canes on attack and have a scrum 35 out from Reds line
12:14
Gagger:  Mungo McLInden playing himself into the squad?
12:14
Juan Cote:  Canes rolling toward Reds line they go wide
12:14
Juan Cote:  TRY had to be

Jatz:  shit tash
12:16
chriscullen:  waratahs will be disgusted
12:16
Juan Cote:  Conversion kicked
12:16
cyclopath:  But is this the hit-out the Canes need before the finals? Pretty loose stuff.
I think the Tahs are already onto Mad Monday…or should be.
12:17
Gagger:  Reds missed 17 tackles already. Impressive going
12:18
Jatz:  Tahs were gone since the loss to the bulls and force
12:18
Juan Cote:  Worst thing is there are three, fucking THREE kiwis in the press box
12:18
Jatz:  JC, at least Sean Fitzpatrick isnt there!
12:18
Juan Cote:  35 min Reds penalty 40 out from Canes line. They kick to the corner for a lineout
12:19
cyclopath:  Fitzy’s been disowned by the Kiwis
12:20
Gagger:  Cheeky little bugger
12:20
Juan Cote:  Red s bashing in close on metres short. Lucas dives in under the ruck and may have scored ????? Gong to the TMO
12:20
Jatz:  video will find it tough to see that.
12:20
Gagger:  No way we’ll see that. Need the TMO from Auckland
12:21
Gagger:  Gawn. Givvit
12:21
Juan Cote:  It’s TRY
12:21
cyclopath:  Just give it, and let’s get on with the Red comeback
12:22
Juan Cote:  Charity begins at home!!!
12:22
Gagger:  That’s hilarious
12:22
cyclopath:  Is that Kaplan saying “You’re useless, thanks”?
12:22
Jatz:  I’m sure the TMO is happy with the way he is being treated by Kaplan tonight!
12:22
Gagger:  S14 refereeing & TMO is a complete joke
12:22
Epi

Does anyone think Kaplan might just be a bit of a prick?

12:22
Jatz:  Yes Epi… He is
12:22
cyclopath:  Define ” a bit”.
12:23
Gagger:  That’s not the word to use. Use the female version
12:23
Juan Cote:  Maybe Kaplan has been out the Steve Walsh before the game?
Barnes kick the conversion from wide out
HERE THEY COME…again
12:23

12:23
Jatz:  slut
12:23
Epi

12:23
cyclopath:  Epi, don’t go there…

12:24

Juan Cote:  38 min Cnes have aline out on Reds 30 but can’t throw straight Reds get a penalty from the enusing scrum
12:24
Juan Cote:  Reds have a lineoiut on Canes 40
12:25
cyclopath:  C’mon, another try, 24-21 and the Tahs have to put their beers down.
12:25
Jatz:  Conrad Smith must be the luckiest player in the world getting all the space Nonu makes for him!
12:25
Juan Cote:  Barnes puts the ball into touch and that’s halftime
12:26
Gagger:  What? The Reds HAVE to give a try away before half time. Its the law isn’t it?
12:31
Epi:  Weepu should be left out of the all blacks for that dance.
12:32
cyclopath:  But he would look slimmer in black – that grey does nothing for him.
12:32
[Comment From Schools]
What was the score for the curtain raiser, ST Pauls v Ormiston
12:32
[Comment From chriscullen]
setting the alarm for sharks/bulls match now. hate those south afican match times.
12:32
[Comment From chriscullen]
wish you wouldnt put these team polls up gagger,i find myself analyzing every single vote
12:32
[Comment From chriscullen]
wonder if robbie deans has voted yet
12:32
Juan Cote:  The Reds are getting dominated and don’t deserve to only be 10 points behind the Canes. 

The Canes will need to keep the pressure on as the Reds are hanging around. Everytime the Canes go wide they make breaks. The Reds have too many non-tacklers iwth both of their winger and Quade being shaky.

The Reds have made quite a few breaks close to the ruck and this is an aspect the Canes need to fix or they will get cut to shredds against better teams.

The Reds need to drag Davies as he looks to timid to make the grade. Leroy is battling manfully as is Barnes and Fetoai. Andrew Shaw is playing a lone hand against the Canes backrow.

The Canes lost their way in the last 15 mins of that half as everything was becoming a bit too easy and they got away from doing the hard work at the breakdown and lost their structure.

The Canes set piece is a bit dodgy, the lineout isn’t the best and their scrum has been pinged a few times from packing incorrectly

12:32
[Comment From chriscullen]
weepu wont make it. cowan will
12:32
Gagger:  Cheap entertainment CC
12:34
Epi

mclinden is about the only shining star for the reds. wonder how he would go in a decent team?

12:35
Juan Cote:  Away for the second half
12:37
Juan Cote:  Canes on attack inside the Reds 22
12:37
Juan Cote:  TRY Canes
12:37
Jatz:  Well… what a crap start
12:37
cyclopath:  Is this the first half again? Same soft opening try
12:37
Jatz:  There were huge gaps in the mid-field from very early on
12:38
Juan Cote:  Had to happen, they started the 2 nd half the way they started to the first and the attractively named Jemery Thrush goes over
12:38
Jatz:  I bet the birds are lining up to marry him
12:38
Juan Cote:  Conversion kicked
12:39
Juan Cote:  Once again the Reds defence is shithouse. It started from an inside break from Nonu and the Reds never recovered
12:39
Gagger:  Do you think the reds practice “tackling”?
12:40
Juan Cote:  44 mi n Reds have it and tring to launch something

Juan Cote:  Reds streaching the Canes and they give away another penalty. 

Canes might lose a player if there is antohter infringment

12:47
Gagger:  Such explosive pace from Leroy
12:47
Gagger:  Never seen a guy hit the ground quicker
12:47
cyclopath:  But he already warned the Canes about that in the 1st half? Does the warning clock reset?
12:47
Epi:  Leroy reminds me of Asafa Powell
12:47
Jatz:  The Reds remind me of Ulster… No game breakers, poor defence, no answers offered and nothing looking amazing for next season.
12:47
Juan Cote:  reds l/o 5 out.

12:53
cyclopath:  Great angle from the Mungo. Well deserved for the Reds – good concentrated pressure
12:53

12:53
Juan Cote:  Higgers on for Taylor
12:53

Juan Cote:  Reds turnover and its curtains
1:28
Juan Cote:  The Canes looked great at the start but faded out of it toward the end, not sure what is going on but they looked tired and the Reds had the best of the last quarter but could do anything with the possession. 

any questions for Nonu?

1:29
Juan Cote:  The Reds tried hard but once again the physical dominance of the oppostion showed. The Reds need size for next year to be any chance of a winning team

Max Factor or Loreal?

cyclopath:  Great dig from the Reds. Well done, and all the more pity about the soft tries they let in at the opening of each half.
Oh well, another Super season done for Aussie teams.
Canes and Chiefs will not be looking forward to facing either the Saders or Bulls in the final if that’s how it pans out, I wouldn’t think.

Juan Cote:  Be fucked if Im asking him that Epi!!!!!

Epi:  hehe..
1:30
cyclopath:  Yeah JC.
Ma’a, whose mo is more pool-cleaner, yours or Corey’s?
1:31
cyclopath:  Thanks for the analysis, KAB.
1:31
Captain Hurricane:  It was close though on the aussie teams
1:32
Juan Cote:  The Canes have a few concerns, most notably their scrum which was set to a couple of times tonight by a Reds pack which is hardly top shelf. Also the Canes fade in and out of the game, not sure why but they don’t seeem to be able to keep up consistent pressure
1:32
Captain Hurricane:  Canes get another likely crack at cheifs!
1:33
Captain Hurricane:  Night, Happy now. thanks for the commentary
1:33
cyclopath:  Tough one to call, Capatin. Both teams had some issues with their wins this week. Prior to this week I’d have picked the Canes to beat them – dunno now. It will be a cracker.

anyone watching the Force?

1:35
Captain Hurricane:  advantage to chiefs i think with awesome home crowd – cow bells and chainsaw possum intimidating kickers at goal time. Will be the diff can’t handle pressure. Grey strip won’t help either.
1:37
cyclopath:  I’m watching the Force – at least the first half I’d say.
1:38
Juan Cote:  Going down to the press conference now
1:46
Epi:  Try Ryan Cross after 40 secs
1:46
Epi:  grubber from Gits dived on by cross.
