It could do something with when BPA's contract actually runs to. While the Reds probably aren't going to hold him to turning up to training if it doesn't expire till Dec-31, BPA's attitude and presence at training would be helpful until he heads overseas.
With Lachie Lonergan staying at home, McKellar had to ensure his Brumbies quota was picked.
Still baffling how the Brumbies reserve hookers are being picked over Mafi (I'm assuming BPA has been released to get set up in France).
Does make you wonder, whether the QC we're seeing now is a by-product of Thorn's actions, if it isn't, I'd love to know what on behind closed doors between QC and Thorn.
Does he still hold a grudge from 'kneeing' Sir Richie????
I'm interested to see how this plays out.
Using the articles example of Petaia being moved because of the Reds having Jock Campbell at 15. If say, they forced Jordan to say the Tahs or Force, what do the Reds get in return for losing a player they've invested time, money and resources in...
Or you know, if could be as simple as, that knee jarr/knock he had in the first half caused his body to over compensate in other areas as he favoured the other knee.
Resulting in more muscular fatigue ultimately turning into cramps.
Or maybe he didn't have his gel at the half time break so...
The Spring/Autumn tour is a great place for Noah to get experience. He now has 2 experienced Fly Halves that he can learn off during the tour both in practice and in games.
If there was club rugby going on at the moment, I'd say yeah, keep Noah at home. But the kid needs to be playing rugby so...
Yeap, Kellaway has been our best and most consistent back all international season. Jordan had some good moments in tonights match.
As I said earlier, Wright and Jordan are competing for the same spot. Wright and Kellaway are.
I don't think Kellaway and Jordan are vying for the same spot. They're clearly different players and compliment one another same with Kellaway and Marika.
Tom Wright is the one competiting against Kellaway.
Good first half, but none of the reserves really stood out.
Glad to get 4 in a row...
