    Round 2: Rebels v Force 8pm - 1st March

    Its going to be a very long season for both those teams based on tonight's display. All the kiwi teams will put 50+ on them. Given the Tahs are going to get trampled for the next 5-6 weeks at least, all we've got left are the Brumbies and the Reds. Now who do I follow?

    Super Rugby: Rd 2. NSW Waratahs v Crusaders, Sat Mar 2

    Don't worry WO, We've got two 20 yo's in our backline and some of the bench are barely out of nappies. Think of it more as an opposed training run.

    OK. I'll bite. Who's the back up 10?

    Super Rugby Round One: Reds vs Waratahs. Suncorp Feb 24

    It pains me to say it, but the only hope the Tahs have is to adopt an England-style game plan and turn it into a tight-five war of attrition. Maybe the weather will help.

    Waratahs 2024

    Just a couple of days ago there was a published list of the injury status in the squad. The difference in the lists over that few day period is very substantial. In the last few days Dave Porecki's Achilles has worsened by up to three weeks, Ned Hanigan's hamstring has worsened by up to three...

    Super Rugby Round One: Reds vs Waratahs. Suncorp Feb 24

    Forecast for Saturday: Wet. Possible late thunderstorm, 20-40 mm rain forecast over the day.

    Waratahs 2024

    Round 1 Hanigan and Porecki are in doubt, Porecki is listed as an Achilles injury (1+). That could be anything. Perese is trialling this week. Sinclair is round 2-4, Harrison is round 3, Lambert (16) is a knee and return is unknown, Holz is round 8-9, Ross is round 2-4. The key problem is in...

    My bad. Thought it was at Manly Oval.

    Super Rugby Round One: Reds vs Waratahs. Suncorp Feb 24

    Reading between the lines from the team announced for the third trial and the list of players out with injury, I expect the Waratah team for the first round will be: 1. Bell, 2. Vailanu, 3. Johnson-Holmes 4. Holloway, 5. Amatosero 6. Hanigan, 7. Gamble, 8. Gleeson 9. Gordon, 10. Edmed 12...

    Waratahs 2024

    If you think that a quarter of the squad unavailable for round 1 is relatively healthy, then you and I have different understandings of relatively healthy.

    Waratahs 2024

    To my eyes, in the pre-Christmas Campbelltown trial he looked OK. Certainly didn't look like a schoolie, but I didn't think he'd be ready till 2025 on what I saw. As there is no feed from Manly Oval can we get a couple of reports from attendees as to how he's progressing?

    Last year's Foketi I agree, this year's Foketi not so much.

    Waratahs 2024

    Round three supposedly, but given its such a long term injury that will be flexible.

    Waratahs 2024

    I would phrase the question as "Could they possibly be looser?" In a team ratings where every player bar a couple would struggle to get above 5, I would have rated Foketi a 2. As a passing comment I would have rated the defence coach as less than zero.

    Waratahs 2024

    Given that I thought his form in the trial was absolutely abysmal, and that more than half the reason the Reds ran untouched through the 10/12/13 channel was his positioning, I could see this injury as a positive rather than a negative. Right now, on form so far, our best halves combination is...

    Reds v Waratahs - Roma Festival of Rugby 10 Feb

    I've just finished scan-watching the game. Reds were totally outclassed right across the park, not just the forwards. Observations: Neither team got the memo on head contact. McKenzie should have got a red too, not just yellow. The Sky Blue offloading in contact was just unstoppable - draw and...

    Reds v Waratahs - Roma Festival of Rugby 10 Feb

    Apparently got an injury that will see him miss at least half the season.

    Waratahs 2024

    Making comments on the trial outcome is a nightmare with horrible legal implications. I suggest we confine ourselves to comments on the rugby.

    Waratahs 2024

    I missed the report on Misiloi. Did he get cited after last week or is this a carryover from 2023?

    Super Rugby trial Rebels v Tahs (Sat 3 Feb)

    Given that no one is streaming it, can people at the game post scores and analysis as we go please. Its the only way we interstaters will know what's happening.
