6:19
Gagger:  I think mine just assumes it’s porn
6:20
Gagger:  Juan. Too depressed to give us a Halt Time roundup?
6:20
Juan Cote:  Reds looking like a disorganised rabble while the Lions at least look they have a game plan, however limited it may be.

That was about the worst the Reds have played this year. They lack any sort of interest in playing to a structure and seem incapable of trying to do better.

6:20
Gagger:  Yep, that about does it.
6:21
Gagger:  Surely they gotta give the kicking to Cooper
6:22
Juan Cote:  Some clown has just proposed to his sheila on the big screen at the ground and she has said yes…they deserve each other
6:22
Gagger:  Oh fuck, I’ve now got Sean Fitzpatrick at half time
6:23
chriscullen:  i can think of nowhere worse to propose than a reds lions game. except perhaps reds/cats game.
6:23
Gagger:  They just showed the try Rose started. Hardman jogs next to the ball carrier without tackling anyone for the full length of the field. At the end he just points to the ball carrier very helpfully
6:24
chriscullen:  hardman
6:24
chriscullen:  so
6:24
chriscullen:  nselfish
6:24
chriscullen:  ike
6:24

6:28
Epi:  Hey gagger. it’s a common thread this season for aussie teams unfortunately isn’t it… probably why the league juniors are outrating rugby…
6:28
Gagger:  I wanna blame someone
6:29
Gagger:  How about Beale? Everyone else is….
6:29
Juan Cote:  Lions unchanged
6:29

6:41
chriscullen:  ive never heard of him,is he the ref?
6:41
Gagger:  Just showed replay. That was never a penalty
6:42
TwitterS14LiveUpdates:  Very weak penalty given to the lions after a reds player fell whilst tackling a lions player. Very weak decision
6:42
Juan Cote:  The ref is a kiwi called keith Brown.

It was after the whistle and definately a penalty

6:42
TwitterS14LiveUpdates:  Mind you it was the ‘assistant referee’ who made the call. Probably just wanting to get on the television.

6:59
Juan Cote:  Can it get any worse for the Reds, with 15 minutes still to go – probably
6:59

6:59
Gagger:  Houston, you have a problem
7:00
Juan Cote:  He is not alone
7:00

7:19
TwitterZenobeach:  Bound for the Blue Gum to watch the Tahs #rugby #super14
7:20
Juan Cote:  That’s that – this ranks with the worst performance the Reds have ever put up.

There was not one redeeming feature for the Reds – they had all the chances but contiunally find ways to give the ball to the other team.

The Lions played a great game and did the business even with only 13 men on the field at one stage. They didn’t play with any sparkle but sat back, brutal defence and caught the Reds on the break.

7:21
TwitterS14LiveUpdates:  Stay tuned to S14LiveUpdates – where we will be updating #super14 games live. #rugby #Waratahs #Force #Reds #Lions
