    Reds supporter. Live in Sydney now days but we actually went to the same school. I was there somewhat before you though

    Reds 2020

    We are really talking about promoting Thorn to Director of Rugby? Anyone familiar with the Dilbert Principle? Reds should be looking for a competent experienced head coach, getting Thorn back to an assistant coach role where he should have been for the whole time while he learns how to be a pro...

    Hometown Refs

    As it turned out, the Rebels got a yellow for repeated infringements almost immediately once play was done near their try line. So the ref remembered

    Broadcast options for Australian Rugby

    The 6N organisers are not allowing joint bids this time around. A joint bid between ITV and the BBC was enough to outbid Sky last time, but it looks as though they are structuring the bids this time around to make sure there's only one possible winner. At the moment ITV screens all the home...

    Highlanders v Rebels, RD 5 - 28th Feb

    Yeah, he was way offside from the lineout a couple of phases before the card, ref was playing advantage. Came on the back of 3 or 4 penalty advantages that the ref warned the Rebels about when the Highlanders scored the previous try

    Reds 2020

    Counting it up, I have 5 coaches first winning in their first year 5 first winning in their second Eddie Jones made gf in 3rd and won in 4th Meyer SF in 2 & 3 and won in 4th And Jamie Joseph the big outlier who won in his 5th year. There is still hope! To put it another way, just once in...

    Reds 2020

    Can I change my card to McQueen wasn't the Brumbies coach in 98 & 99? And he made the final in year 2 (there's that ancient history!) Anyway, my theory isn't that good coaches will automatically win in year 1 and 2. It's that there's probably not much point expecting too much from a coach...

    I'll play the ancient history card on that one. Made a final in year 1 though

    Sure, but that's not an argument for sticking with Phil Mooney or Michael Foley.

    Reds are terrible at picking head coaches. Pretty clearly. Seems a really easy fix to me #1 criteria - proven success as a head coach with full time men's professional 15 club or franchise competition.

    Reds 2020

    The vast majority of super rugby winning coaches won their first championship within two years of taking over a side. Most of the time success comes quick or it doesn't come at all

    And just to add, check out who the former CEO of the premiership works for now. Mark McCafferty negotiated the sale to CVC, promptly resigned and went to work for them. Anyone fully confident that our administrators would never do such a thing?

    Cricket showed the way CVC did it with F1. They'll do it with rugby. They'll do it here if we let them ( though I doubt they're interested in our potential revenue, it's our players and opposition for their revenue generating teams that they'll want.)

    In our regularly scheduled "that try from a maul wasn't legal" series, I reckon that last reds try will be right up there for least legal try of the year

    Reds v Sharks, Rnd 5 2020, Lang Park Sat 29 7:15 EDST

    Ahhh, yeah. He kicked one goal for Toulon in 2016. Hasn't kicked a goal for anyone since. Multiple ankle reconstructions since then.

    O'Connor has kicked one goal in the last 5 years of his career. He pretty clearly doesn't want to do it
