Byes

Melbourne Rebels

Remember, we’ll update the lists as the teams come in. Or you can get all the latest info on our Facebook, Twitter and Google plus pages.

  • Tahs_Man_Fan

    Seriously haven’t been this stoked with a Waratahs line up in years. Wouldn’t change a thing! I’d like to see Horne, Latu, Potgeiter, Latu and Carraro given a crack around the 75 min mark as well. Happy days though!

    • Jimmy

      That is a good looking bench they have – well I’m hoping they perform this year….we have all been waiting too long for them to do something good.

    • Steve

      As a Brumbies fan I think we have a great 22; but have to say that Waratahs team sheet is mighty impressive. The starting forward pack in particular is fearsome on paper (apart from the captain maybe?).

    • Guy

      I think starting Skelton and Phipps is evidence he is being true to his word about selecting on form. These 2 played their hearts out in the trials (well, to be fair i only saw the Sydney one). Its great for competitive environment when the coach is prepared to stand by his philosophy

  • Jay-c

    Foley thinks that by not naming his team he’s keeping people guessing and hoping to give his team a slight advantage, whereas really it just shows his own lack of confidence in his line up…

    • nipper

      Nah, he always waits until the last possible minute to name the squad.

      If you have seen any of the interviews in the past week, there is clearly no lack of confidence.

  • Eddie

    Tahs still have 4 MARSHMELLOWS in the starting pack..Not good enough ..Force by 10

    • Hawko

      Well, “everyone” knows that Robinson and Dennis are marshmallows. Hooper is just a little guy so that might make three. But I just can’t imagine who you might think is the fourth. Personally, I wouldn’t go one on one with any of them, I’ve got more respect for my life after watching the ferocity of Super rugby from the front row of the SFS.
      Looking forward to Sunday just so we can get some of the Knockers back in to their burrows.

      • porpor

        You have no idea about rugby if you think Hooper “is just a little guy” and, thus, a softy.

    • MM

      Can you name this “soft 4″ so we can watch their performances a little closer?

      • ken

        I reckon he menas Palu, cos he is made if glass ( prior history) & Douglas because he`s built like Tarzan but plays like Jane. ( Shocking LIONS SERIES )

    • Michael

      That will do me…..

  • Benaud

    Cheetahs team has been named too

  • http://nflsb2014lo.blogspot.com/ pontinglee2014

    2014 Super Rugby Draw for the NSW Waratahs v Force, Reds, Brumbies, Rebels, Sharks, Stormers, Bulls, Blues, Hurricanes, Lions, Chiefs and the highlanders.

  • Rex Munday

    Aidan Toua???

    Brumbies by a score

  • Ben Dickinson

    I think those Lions/Stormers lineups might be off, Adam.

  • Jack

    Round 2..? Did those jaapie games last week constitute an actual official round..? Why..??

    • Bairdy

      They play only two tests in June/July, against Wales, and Scotland (?) or Ireland

ACT Brumbies

Otherwise known as 'The Red Baron'. I've played schoolboys in Canberra, colts in Melbourne and seniors in Cairns. Not very well mind you. Nowadays, I am more content to watch from the sidelines and watch my waistline expand.
