Join us for some wanging as the Rebels host the Tahs

  • Tangawiz

    Holy snappin’ duckshit! Missed the game but what the fuck happened there?

    Rebels = Rejected!

  • pants

    Shame the Rebels didn’t score any points. Where did it go wrong for them?

    • Bobas

      hilgendorf was a waste of a position, like i said when they named the team… Gerrard would have got them on the board…

  • The Rant

    burgess had a blinder but fuck me he still can’t pass.

    macqueen seems to be sticking to his forwards tactics of off the ruck pick and go – just without a backline ready to pounce. Very unorganised effort from melbourne.

    Barnes played well at 10 but needs to learn to kick goals – we all know how that can cost you at the business end of things.

  • Swat

    Looks like rabobank will have to change their add to “a team with no history, with nowhere to play and no points” BOOM!

  • Robson

    Unfortunately I only got to see part of the first half of the game, but enough to know that Al Baxter MUST be in the Wallabies squad. He has completely altered his pre engagement stance at scrumtime and not even the faintest suspicion of being susceptible to collapsing. From what I saw he asked some big questions of the Rebels front row too and his non scrum work rate was right up there.

    • Mad Dog

      He changed to that setup after the Twickenham debacle, and has been solid as a rock since. As I have posted before, look here at 3.08, for Baxter vs Alexander.

      Same thing happened four times during the game. Alexander was penalised twice.

      Ignore Kafe’s ignorant comment. Se how Baxter is eyes up, back low and parallel to ground. Ben A is higher, and slopes up from shoulders to hips. Inevitible result, he ‘hinges’ as the refs say, and his nose hits the dirt.
