60″ – Reds 15 – Cheetahs 3
Reds tries so far
- Mark McLinden 26min . Reds fwds keeping it alive through the hands. Eventually goes wide to McLinden who steps inside two jappies and runs it under the posts. (lucas converted)
- Digby Ioane 46min. Breakdown on Reds’ 40m line. Ioane standing in blind side of 4m. Ball is popped to him and he sprints it in
Lucas penalty 44min
63″ – WOW! Ioane kick returns 40 metres, they recycle, Quade kicks to corner it sits up and McMeniman runs it around under the posts
Frikken touchie brings it back 5 minutes to a no-arm hit from Cooper on the original kick
67″ – Housten goes straight through back line off long line out. It goes through 4 hands and 30 metres before barnes puts it down 3 metres out. Reds have bombed 5 tries through handling errors. Its fucken hot out there though.
Weeks off. Dana Edwards on.
Cooper misses long range droppy
75″ – Van Humphries picks up ball from ruck (was it forward?) and runs into open space, offloads to Heinz who scores under posts. Cooper converts 22-3
78″ – Reds pinch a lineout and send it wide. McLinden offloads in tackle but Faingaa spills. Story of the night.
80″ – Reds make final turnover, but surprise, surprise spill it.
That’s the donger. It’s 35 degrees out there and everyone’s fucked. But not as fucked as the Cheetahs chances of going anywhere this year.
